    Book description:

    Chuck D, the creative force behind Public Enemy and one of the most outspoken, politically active and controversial rappers in music, discusses his views on everything from rap and race to the problems with politics in society today. Before Gangsta Rap dominated the media and rode the airwaves, Chuck D and Public Enemy were redefining the sound of contemporary music with their brand of socially conscious, politically charged, bass-crunching music. His lyrics challenged mainstream notions of racial justice and rallied for self-empowerment, so much so that he became known as "Black America's CNN". The book draws on the material Chuck D discusses in the lectures he gives across the United States, the result of provocative assessments of black culture today.
