Hip Hop World (Paperback): Dalton Higgins Hip Hop World (Paperback)

R179 R145 Discovery Miles 1 450 Save R34 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In "Hip Hop World, " Dalton Higgins comprehensively examines the hip hop scene as it exists throughout the world. The book reveals the form's musical inspirations from Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Jamaica, African American sex satirists, comedians, civil rights-fuelled funk musicians, spoken word luminaries, and dub and Nuyorican poetry. Author Higgins examines hip hop's racial, multicultural, and multilingual listening audiences, the development of global rap slanguage and its influence on standard English lexicons, and hip hop herstory and cultural taboos around sexuality. He highlights the burgeoning Aboriginal hip hop scenes in Canada and Australia, and movements in colleges across North America and Europe that use hip hop lyrics and artistry to help engage students in learning. Critical of hip hopsters' use of language, the cult of bling, violence, and money, this book takes readers beyond a superficial look and delves into all the issues surrounding this form. Higgins taps into his own powers of pop culture prognostication to predict the future of the genre and the youth culture that spawned it, as this irresistible musical and cultural form spreads literally to the furthest reaches of humanity.

Some of Canada's most acclaimed multicultural personalities, public figures, intellectuals, entertainers, athletes, and activists share stories, memories, insights, and revelations about fatherhood, from the comic to the tragic. Through critical essays, first-person musings, interviews, conversations, spoken word, and dub poetry, this collection examines the place where cross-cultural fatherhood intersects with the worlds of technology, hip hop, and hipster culture-a cool diverse dads movement! As an African-Canadian fatherhood advocate, Dalton Higgins also digs around to see how black fathers of this millennium are faring, as academics and pundits have debated for decades what is at the heart of the problem when it comes to the much-publicized shortcomings of black fathers. Fatherhood 4.0 spots trends across a newer generation of media-savvy multi-culti dads influenced by everything from George Lopez and Bill Cosby to the Osbournes and Obama, with keen insights and essays from fatherhood activists. It includes essays on the "baby daddy" phenomenon and Bob Marley, pops in popular culture, technology and parenting, and crucial research on aboriginal fatherhood by Dr. Jessica Ball. The book contains candid interviews with: Michael "Pinball" Clemons, Broken Social Scene's Charles Spearin, Toronto FC's Dwayne De Rosario, Bollywood Boulevard's Mohit Rajhans, George Elliott Clarke, Hal Niedzvicki, Lawrence Hill, Fucked Up's Damian Abraham, dramatist Richard Lee, the CBC's Matt Galloway, social entrepreneur Sol Guy, Plex, and more!

An inside peek at the life of a MuchMusic VJ . . . When you think of urban pop culture icons at "the nation's music station" over the past decade, only one name comes to mind: Master T. "T" has been an employee at Much since their doors opened in 1984 (in 1990 he hit the air full-time as a VJ) and in that time he's helped fuel the growth of urban music in Canada and become world renowned for his relaxed, well-researched style of interviewing. So much so that musical artists such as Shaggy, Eminem, and the Spice Girls have specifically requested that Master T be their host for high-profile much interview segments. This part-Much-retrospective, part-autobiography will provide a behind-the-scenes peek at the bejeweled, dreadlocked wonder as he rubs shoulders with A-list celebrities from Barry White and the Backstreet Boys to Mary J. Blige and Madonna during his intimate interview sessions. Much Master T fuses together stories of his life migrating from England to Kitchener, Ontario, becoming a pitchman for the hugely successful Dance Mix CDs, his views on diversity on Canadian TV, and how he helped usher in Much's unconventional style of political reportage. Included are never-before-told stories of having his head pulled into Scary Spice's cleavage, interviewing Tupac just days before his murder, and coercing a very pregnant Lauryn Hill-on-sabbatical to perform an exclusive gig at his MuchMusic goodbye blocko party.
