PIMPS UP, HO'S DOWN: HIP HOP'S HOLD ON YOUNG BLACK WOMEN offers damning evidence about hip hop's underlying racial and social prejudices, examining the politics of gender and providing a feminist's perspective and insights into black music's underlying message. One would expect--and receive--a focus on lyrics--but also analyzed is how black women are displayed in music videos, film, TV and on the internet, making for an important analysis well suited to any college collection with strong music or social analysis sections.
