What is  Hip Hop? This history of American Hip-Hop is told in rhyming verse and uses 3D clay figures in primary colours to illustrate it, a winning combination which makes this an instantly fun and engaging book, sure to entice even the most reluctant reader. Some female rappers are included and there are references to the broader urban culture of hip-hop; its graffiti, break-dancing, clothing style and occasional references to race relations. Morse does not shy away from the fact that the songs can contain 'violence and bad things' but 'call it right or wrong they sang of the world that they knew'.
