Dated Emcees (Paperback) (Chinaka Hodge)
about this item
Dated Emcees bridges the distance between lovers of urban music and readers of traditional poetry. Chinaka Hodge came of age along with hip-hopand rap's influence on her suitors became inextricable from their personal interactions. Form blends with content as she examines her intimate life through the lens of rap's best known orators, characters, archetypes and songs, blurring the line between lived and imagined.Dated Emcees creates a new and inventive narrative about the music that shaped the craggy heart of a too-sentient young woman as it also changed the global landscape of pop.
