Signifying Rappers

Finally back in print--David Foster Wallace and Mark Costello's exuberant exploration of rap music and culture. Upon the discovery that they shared "an uncomfortable, somewhat furtive, and distinctively white enthusiasm for a certain music called rap/hip-hop¿ longtime friends David Foster Wallace and Mark Costello set about writing a collaborative essay on the subject. That essay became Signifying Rappers, one of the first books to explore rap across contexts--race, politics, language, and popular culture. With infectious excitement, insight, and relentless self-consciousness, Wallace and Costello discuss the golden age of rap in the 1980s.
