What's the 411? From ace to base, buddha to zooted, this book defines over a thousand words and phrases of hip-hop culture, from obscure regionalisms to terms that have made their way into the mainstream. This alphabetized collection not only provides definitions, but offers examples and sources for the rap fan, the curious word-lover, and anyone interested in self-expression, creativity, and "the poetry of the streets". With a discography and bibliography, it's the essential rap reference ... from A2Z.
