The Lyrics

Book - 1992
Rate this:
This book contains the complete lyrics to 200 old school rap songs, with a history and overview of this musical form up until the early nineties. Once dismissed as a fashionable music form, rap is a vital force in American culture itself. From music awards to McDonalds adverts, sounds of rap have permeated the media. Controversies caused by groups such as Public Enemy, and sometimes coarse language and lyrics of the street have caused the public at large to scrutinize popular music in an attempt to control it. Like every other genre of music, the lyrics run from socially aware to hedonistic and everything in between.
