The Hip Hop Wars Hip hop is in crisis For the past dozen years, the most commercially successful hip hop has become increasingly saturated with caricatures of black gangstas, thugs, pimps, and hos The controversy surrounding hip hop is worth attending to and examining with a critical eye because, as scholar and cultural critic Tricia Rose argues, hip hop has become a primary means by which we talk about race in the United States.In The Hip Hop Wars, Rose explores the most crucial issues underlying the polarized claims on each side of the debate Does hip hop cause violence, or merely reflect a violent ghetto culture Is hip hop sexist, or are its detractors simply anti sex Does the portrayal of black culture in hip hop undermine black advancement A potent exploration of a divisive and important subject, The Hip Hop Wars concludes with a call for the regalvanization of the progressive and creative heart of hip hop What Rose calls for is not a sanitized vision of the form, but one that accurately reflects a much richer space of culture, politics, anger, and yes, sex, than the current ubiquitous images in sound and video currently provide.
