Thoroughly researched, thoroughly in tune with the culture, Hip Hop in America: A Regional Guide profiles two dozen specific hip hop scenes across the United States, showing how each place shaped a singular identity. Through its unique geographic perspective, it captures the astonishing diversity of a genre that has captivated the nation and the world.
In two volumes organized by broad regions (East Coast, West Coast and Midwest and the Dirty South), Hip Hop in America spans the complete history of rap—from its 1970s origins to the rap battles between Queens and the Bronx in the 1980s, from the well-publicized East Coast vs. West Coast conflicts in the 1990s to the rise of the Midwest and South over the past ten years. Each essay showcases the history of the local scene, including the MCs, DJs, b-boys and b-girls, label owners, hip hop clubs, and radio shows that have created distinct styles of hip hop culture.

"This two-volume reference profiles 23 local hip hop scenes across the US, from the Bronx to Honolulu, with a particular focus on the social contexts that fostered the hip hop styles of each region. Writing is intended to appeal to students and fans, but with an academic perspective that meets curriculum standards for history and culture. A 20-page introduction reviews the importance of geographical location in hip hop. Volume I covers the East and West coasts, and Volume II covers the Midwest, the South, and beyond. Each regional essay describes the history and current status of the local scene, touching on influential artists, label owners, clubs, and radio shows. The reference is illustrated with about 100 B&W photos of personalities and clubs, and includes interviews with key figures, a chronology, and indexes of people, places, songs, and terms."
