"“Hip Hop’s Wall $treet” is a documented journey, depicting the rise of this musical genre that some once called a mere fad, or a short-term delinquent phase held in a much wider juvenile behaviour. However, this same inner city cultural phenomenon that has since transformed itself from its musical base to a far more active presence, in several aspects of wider consumer entertainment and lifestyle structures, has in the process corrupted a multitude of its followers with its trend setting prowess that can be deemed as negative, as well as positive all at the same time.
And the book also shows how this contemporary and multifaceted musical art form in all its glory should forever be perceived as being a classic example of mainstream Americanism, that looks set to uphold several commercially ideal values from within a highly complex environment.
