Hip Hop Intellectual Resistance
As an engaging philosophical work of social critique and cultural commentary, A. Shahid Stover ignites a series of explosive critical interrogations which explore a tense unity of Hip Hop aesthetics and radical social theory. Written with the compelling audacity of a young iconoclast, Stover challenges the reader with an elevated critical discourse which remains diligently grounded and ever relevant to “the streets of a world in structural transition, spiritual alienation, socio-political upheaval and intellectual revolt.” Hip Hop Intellectual Resistance is a book of genuine ‘existential liberationist’ commitment as lived and experienced by a new voice of independent radical thought, who revels in confronting the ‘academy’ with social relevance and inciting the ‘streets’ with intellectual rigor.
