5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 19 Nov. 2001
Format: Paperback
A showcase for the new generation of black British urban griots (story tellers), from political prisoners to rappers. Ditching the genre's traditional literary preoccupations, the new school uses Tupac and Tricky as cultural references. Hence rhymes about rituals (fighting juju), racism (on finally wiping the swastika from the bus stop) rawness, and rap.
