1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ambitious and hard-hitting documentary "Blacking Up: Hip-Hop's Remix of Race and Identity" looks at the popularity of hip-hop among America's white youth. It asks whether white identification is rooted in admiration and a desire to transcend race or if it is merely a new chapter in the long continuum of stereotyping, mimicry and cultural appropriation? Does it reflect a new face of racial understanding in white America or does it reinforce an ugly history?

Can't stop, won't stop : a history of the hip-hop generation by Jeff Chang( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forged in the fires of the Bronx and Kingston, Jamaica, hip-hop became the Esperanto of youth rebellion and a generation-defining movement. In a post-civil rights era defined by deindustrialization and globalization, hip-hop crystallized a multiracial, polycultural generation's worldview, and transformed American politics and culture. But that epic story has never been told with this kind of breadth, insight, and style. Based on original interviews with DJs, b-boys, rappers, graffiti writers, activists, and gang members, with unforgettable portraits of many of hip-hop's forebears, founders, and mavericks, including DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Chuck D, and Ice Cube, Can't Stop Won't Stop chronicles the events, the ideas, the music, and the art that marked the hip-hop generation's rise from the ashes of the 60's into the new millennium. Here is a powerful cultural and social history of the end of the American century, and a provocative look into the new world that the hip-hop generation created
The freshest kids by Israel( Visual )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary explores how breakdancers helped pioneer and shape today's hip-hop culture. B-boys are defined, variously, as "breakboys" (the original term) and "breakdancers" (the more widely known one). The narrative traces their evolution from the South Bronx 1970s to media-crazed 1980s--when they were featured in movies from Wild Style to Flashdance--to today, as the phenomenon has returned to the underground while remaining as popular as ever (as exemplified by footage from Germany, Japan, etc.). This film presents an oral history of the form, using archival footage and interviews with founding dancers from both coasts

Generación Hip-Hop : de la guerra de pandillas y el grafiti al gangsta rap by Jeff Chang( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Basado en cientos de entrevistas y más de diez años de investigación, Jeff Chang nos ofrece una exhaustiva historia musical y cultural del hip-hop, desde sus raíces en los sound systems jamaiquinos, pasando por las guerras de pandillas y fiestas callejeras en los guetos negros de Nueva York, hasta su posicionamiento como uno de los sonidos más influyentes del mainstream actual. Las trayectorias de artistas como Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, Ice Cube y Jay-Z, junto a la de promotores, sellos y djs, son el hilo conductor con el que el autor reconstruye la evolución de este género, interpretando su desarrollo como reflejo de las tensiones políticas e ideológicas que atravesaron la comunidad afroamericana desde la década del 70 en adelante. Para toda una generación, nacida tras el asesinato de Malcom X y con los gobiernos neoliberales de Reagan y Bush como telón de fondo, los cuatro elementos característicos del hip-hop –el dj, el mc, el breakdancing y el grafiti– se convirtieron en los canales privilegiados para expresar su malestar y promover una cultura en común. Las distintas formas que adoptó este género, desde la militancia inspirada en las Panteras Negras de bandas como Public Enemy hasta las rimas sexistas y homofóbicas de los artistas del gangsta rap, son el reflejo de una generación que debió debatirse entre la conciencia negra engendrada en las luchas históricas de la comunidad afroamericana y la cultura del individualismo, la competencia y el consumo, exacerbada por la sociedad capitalista contemporánea."

"Der kanadische Radiojournalist Shad, seines Zeichens selbst Rapper, geht den Wurzeln des Hip-Hops und Gangster-Raps auf die Spur. Dafür setzt er sich in verschiedenen Interviews mit den Urvätern des Hip-Hops zusammen. Hierbei trifft er nicht nur auf Rap-Legenden wie Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, die Sugarhill Gang, Run DMC und Russell Simmons, sondern auch auf andere Gröe︢n der Szene wie Ice-T, Ice Cube, Public Enemy, die Beastie Boys und LL Cool J, die ohne den Einfluss der Grossen nicht existieren würden. Durch diese Interviews veranschaulicht Shad spannend die dynamische Entwicklung des Hip-Hops seit den 1970ern bis in die 1990er. Ehrlich, greifbar und authentisch führt der Radiojournalist Shad den Zuschauer auf die Pfade der Vergangenheit, auf der Suche nach den Spuren der einflussreichsten Musikgröe︢n ihres Genres seit den 1970ern."
