Présentation de l'éditeur

From the school yards of the South Bronx to the tops of the Billboard charts, rap has emerged as one of the most influential cultural forces of our time. In The Anthology of Rap, editors Adam Bradley and Andrew DuBois demonstrate that rap is also a wide-reaching and vital poetic tradition born of beats and rhymes.

This pioneering anthology brings together more than three hundred lyrics written over thirty years, from the “old school” to the “golden age” to the present day. Rather than aim for encyclopedic coverage, Bradley and DuBois render through examples the richness and diversity of rap’s poetic tradition. They feature both classic lyrics that helped define the genre, including Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five’s “The Message” and Eric B. & Rakim’s “Microphone Fiend,” as well as lesser-known gems like Blackalicious’s “Alphabet Aerobics” and Jean Grae’s “Hater’s Anthem.”

Both a fan’s guide and a resource for the uninitiated, The Anthology of Rap showcases the inventiveness and vitality of rap’s lyrical art. The volume also features an overview of rap poetics and the forces that shaped each period in rap’s historical development, as well as a foreword by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and afterwords by Chuck D and Common. Enter the Anthology to experience the full range of rap’s artistry and discover a rich poetic tradition hiding in plain sight.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Collection of rap songs 10 août 2014
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
A collection of the 'best' lyrical works of hiphop. You'll find a small introduction to each artist whose songs appear in the book and then you'll be able to read the lyrics of the selected songs.

Où l'on découvre ou redécouvre certains morceaux de rap, de sa naissance à maintenant. Assez complet et le tout en v.o., manque peut-être quelques photos...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Provocative Scholarly Feat! 1 décembre 2010
Par MJ - Publié sur
I applaud the work of Bradley and DuBois in bringing this anthology to life - it was needed! I'm fascinated by its polarizing nature - people absolutely love it or hate it.

Most of the criticism is focused on accuracy of transcriptions, which the editors address in the anthology. The text is not perfect, nor should we expect it to be if we recognize the breadth of this work. This should not be seen as a final statement of fact, but an evolving window into an under-appreciated culture.

When you move beyond the letter and fully grasp the spirit of the anthology, you see an accessible toolkit for understanding rap. Importantly, it pays homage to many rappers that have faded from consciousness. Indeed, I would say that some of the rappers whose lyrics have been debated over accuracy have benefited greatly. At its core, this anthology is homage. Similarly, those artists that have not been included have been the focus of renewed interest.

I'm grateful for this collection - it's been a wonderful trip down memory lane, giddily recalling when I first heard many of the records.

And for those that didn't grow up with this poetry, I'm happy to see the interest in rap the anthology is generating.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I've never seen a flame war started over a book before! 30 novembre 2010
Par CADJewellerySkills - Publié sur
I'm shocked at how many people have ganged up against this book, far beyond any realistic or even rational criticism. I'm guessing the book review in Slate magazine started a particularly nasty argument in the Fray which has since spilled over onto Amazon. I can only guess a large enough portion of people who read that review and participated in that flame war didn't let off enough steam, so they came over to Amazon to do a "hatchet job" on the book's rating.

Nearly all of the criticisms levelled at this book are accusing it of being "rife with errors". Allow me to put things in a bit more realistic of a perspective: There are 26 well-documented errors out of almost a thousand entries. I don't know about you, but my definition of "rife with errors" requires a little more than that.

But I digress. Let's talk about the book.

Bradley and DuBois have gone to great lengths to frame rap itself in a literary and historical context within American culture. Through hundreds of examples, they have managed to effectively create a chronological history of the evolution of rap as a lyrical medium since the very first rappers started rhyming over disco beats.

It's telling that all of the negative reviews of this book come down to nitpicking over transcription of lyrics. I can only take this as proof that hip hop culture has aged enough to where people can become so emotionally involved over the slightest variation in words. I would argue that this makes the case that much stronger for a need to give rap the thorough historical documentation and academic study it deserves. In that way, I doubt you'll find anywhere a more thorough and insightful book on rap lyrics that this.

RAP is not just for specialists, for the quickdraw pedants of pop culture who are every bit as self-seeking and in the end corrupt as their academic counterparts. RAP is for the mass of Americans trapped in the profound inanities of conventional thinking, middle-class cowardice, and fake feeling brought about by the conditioning of too much liberal or conservative slobber. This book isn't about mistakes of transcription, as minimal as they really are. It's about an art dedicated to breaking barriers of language and thinking. And this book delivers what it should deliver: the goods of a true American art form in a way that all Americans can take in and come to comprehend. Buy this book, read it deeply, break out of your own shell of expectations and limited knowledge. Confront yourself and your cherished ideas about the things you think are sacred. Do it. Let RAP help you. Then ask yourself if the pecksniff critics of exactitude have any real place in the discussion of what is important either in art or life.

I purchased this book to prep for a Rap as Poetry course at Wayne State. It's invaluable, and lets folks trace various hooks and lines throughout rap's short and lively history. Indispensable.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, but not great 2 septembre 2011
Par Willy - Publié sur
It's been said before that the lyrics came directly from and this was something I didnt notice, as I havent analyzed most of the lyrics while listening to the music. However, I did notice that there was no mention of many noteworthy artists such as Killah Priest, Hell Razah, or anyone from the DuckDown label. These artists have withstood the test of time and still release new and more importantly, good material. All of these MCs I felt deserved a spot above artists who were included such as MIA and Drake. Their bodies of work are much deeper than club hits released in the past 3 years. Having said that, I was pleasantly surprised to find Jay Electronica in the "lyrics for further study" chapter as he is far underrated and still practically unknown. I like the idea of the book, but like its already been said, there need to be revisions. Peace!
