Where You're at: Notes from the Frontline of a Hip Hop Planet
Pinballing around the major cities of the world, from where it all began in the projects of Brooklyn and the Bronx to the excessive madness of Tokyo, from the random violence of Johannesburg, to the shanty towns of Rio, Whitbread Award-winning writer Patrick Neate explores the way how, through hip hop, the potent symbolism of black America has been acquired, used and subsumed by cultures on every continent to create a uniquely different form of globalism.
A stunning musical journey and cultural odyssey, Where You're At is the story of how hip hop conquered the globe and nobody noticed.
