    One thought on “Nuthin' But a "G" Thang: The Culture and Commerce of Gangsta Rap”

    1. This book is useful to trace the beginnings of gangsta rap into mainstream America through the commercialization of its most prominent rappers, notably Ice Cube. Quinn also delves into a generating force behind the development of gangsta rap as an enterprise: the shift from American industrialization, which left many ghetto peoples poor and unemployed, the government abandonment of local community organizations for its minority--particularly black youth--which left young rap pioneers such as Dr. [...]

    2. Though (Black) women, misogyny, and female rappers weren't explored in nearly half as much detail as males; though the author makes this salacious claim that made me PAUSE: "Since gangsta lyrics are centrally preoccupied with dramatizing power relations, I would argue that the opposite sex is implicitly – and often explicitly – construed as powerful in gangsta rap. The “hard man” strikes out at anything that threatens his ego or stature. If romantic partners possessed no power to injure [...]

    3. Well, it's interesting a point. After reading it, I definitely know more than I started with about Gangsta rap, though I didn't get as much as I'd hoped out of the book. I felt like the multiethnic history of rap and hip hop was glossed over and the black versus white attitude emphasized too much.

    4. A really great examination of gangsta rap culture, and its rise to prominence. The book is very sociological though. The author uses a lot of huge words, almost to prove she can use big words. Besides having to reread numerous passages, trying to figure out what they hell she was getting at, it was a very informative book.

    5. I've been reading a ton about hip hop lately, and this book was super fun and satisfying. The chapters on 'bad man lore' and 'tricksters' were especially tasty.
