JAY-Z: The Roots of Rap

[col. writ. 1/17/11] (c) '11 Mumia Abu-Jamal For a rapper to write a book, a straight-ahead prose text, is unusual. For they think in rhymes, couplets, metaphors and beats.

This tribe seemed to be the ultimate bounty in terms of career-making studies within anthropology and this has created extreme competition and bitchy infighting among the academics.
