Signifying Rappers:

Rap and Race In the Urban Present

1990

Co-authored with Mark Costello

The author of Infinite Jest and his co-writer discuss rap and popular culture, power, money, racial politics, and language in the first book to seriously consider rap and its position as a vital force in American culture. "Brilliantly written . . . (with) great wit, insight, and in-your-face energy."
