Based on more than five years of anthropological fieldwork in São Paulo, Brazil, this book highlights race, class, gender and territory to argue that Brazilian hip hoppers are subjects rather than objects of history and everyday life. This is the first ethnography in English to analyze Brazilian hip hop

Editorial Reviews

"A well written, concise account of Brazilian hip hop. Pardue does a very good job of combining historical, sociological, aesthetic, artistic, and ideological analysis of hip hop music. The rich, ethnographic depictions help to bring the story to life. This book is an important contribution to the study of global hip hop and Brazilian popular music." - Sujatha Fernandes, Queens College, CUNY, author of Cuba Represent! Cuban Arts, State Power, and The Making of New Revolutionary Cultures
