Understand Rap

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2256700&cjsku=2256700...
Rap songs are famous for their double entendres, clever turns of phrase, and general ingenuity, but that doesnt mean things always make sense the first time around. Enter Understand Rap, a very funny pop-cultural reference book based on the website of the same name, which precisely explains the confusing lyrics and terms used in rap songs using language that even the most un-hip person can understand. The juxtaposition of a dry, academic tone with hip-hop terminology results in a book thats as entertaining as it is informative.

Rap Dad

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=96171685&fc=GB&cjsku=96171685...
A timely reflection on identity in America, exploring the intersection of fatherhood, race, and hip-hop culture. Just as his music career was taking off, Juan Vidal received life-changing news: heâd soon be a father. Throughout his life, neglectful men were the ruleâhis own dad struggled with drug addiction and infidelityâa cycle that, inevitably, wrought Vidal with insecurity. At age twenty-six, with only a bare grip on life, what lessons could he possibly offer a kid? Determined to alter the course for his child, Vidal did what heâd always done when confronted with lifeâs challenges. He turned to the counterculture. âThe counterculture took the place of a father I could no longer touch. Since things like school and church couldnât get through to me, I was being trained up outside of organized institutions. What I gravitated to were these movements that not only felt redeeming, but also freeing. They were almost everything I needed.â In Rap Dad, the musician-turned-journalist takes a thoughtful and inventive approach to exploring identity and examining how we view fatherhood in a modern context. To root out the source of his fears around parenting, Vidal revisits the flash points of his juvenescence, a feat that transports him, a first-generation American born to Colombian parents, back to the drug-fueled streets of 1980sâ90s Miami. Itâs during those pivotal years that heâs drawn to skateboarding, graffiti, and the music of rebellion: hip-hop. As he looks to the past for answers, he infuses his personal story with rap lyrics and interviews with some of pop cultureâs most compelling voicesâplenty of whom have proven to be some of societyâs best, albeit nontraditional, dads. Along the way, Vidal confronts the unfair stereotypes that taint urban menâespecially Black and Latino menâin todayâs society. An illuminating journey of discovery, Rap Dad is a striking portrait of modern fatherhood that is as much political as it is entertaining, personal as it is representative, and challenging as it is revealing.
