#1 New York Times bestselling author Shea Serrano’s latest audiobook combines the smooth hipness of Tribe Called Quest, the hellfire of DMX (RIP), the quirky brilliance of Missy Elliot, and the sheer, unstoppable flow of Jay-Z into one enlightened compendium of hip-hop greatness
HIP-HOP (AND OTHER THINGS) is about, as it were, rap, but also some other things.
It’s a smart, fun, funny, insightful audiobook that spends the entirety of its time celebrating what has become the most dominant form of music over the past two and a half decades. From Tupac to Jay Z, Missy Elliott to Drake, you’ll find pretty much all of the big names among these pages – as well as a bunch of the smaller names, too.
Some of the chapters are serious, and some of the chapters are silly, and some of the chapters are a combination of both things. All of them, though, are treated with the care and respect that they deserve.
