Product description


?Rap Attack is "down by law" for understanding the roots of rappers in America - past, present and future

Gary Byrd, DJ ?David Toop rolls away the stones to uncover a hidden world of B Boys, Hip Hoppers and Planet Rockers, where time is caught in a frantic loop, and where taste is a matter of "if it fits, use it"? Charlie Gillett ?Records the vertiginously metamorphic nature of Afro-American culture (Village Voice)

Rap Attack will not only put you in touch with the most innovative music of the last decade but will also give you a fair insight into the creative input of the Black American for the last century and more, and then tie it up neatly with a comprehensible bow at the end - most rewarding (The Wire)

About the Author

David Toop is a highly regarded author, music critic and musician. Since 1995 he has released three solo albums, curated five compilation albums (including the soundtrack to Ocean of Sound), and the sound and music exhibition at the Hayward Gallery - 'Sonic Boom'. His music journalism appears in The Wire, Book Forum, The Times and The Face.
