Loving the cool explores the understudied discourse of love
relationships in hip-hop music as it relates to notions of black
masculinity and male identity. Loving the Cool considers hip-hop as
dialogic and discursive space where, in particular, African
American men discuss their experiences, concerns, perspectives and
fears about sexuality, love and relationships. Through an
interdiscpilnary mix of social science, black feminist thought,
rhetorical studies and hip-hop scholarship, this book explores how
hip-hop's Black masculine dialogues animate and give voice to
real-life tensions surrounding sexuality and loving relationships
in the lives of African American audiences. Loving The cool
challenges reductionist notions of hip-hop and masculinity by
exploring the potential for feminist 'eroticism' as intervention on
hip-hop's fascination with the 'cool.'
