"Dyson writes with the affection of a fan but the rigor of an academic. ... Using extensive passages from Jay-Z''s lyrics, ''Made in America'' examines the rapper''s role as a poet, an aesthete, an advocate for racial justice and a business, man, but devotes much of its energy to Hova the Hustler." -Allison Stewart, The Washington Post

"Dyson''s incisive analysis of JAY-Z''s brilliance not only offers a brief history of hip-hop''s critical place in American culture, but also hints at how we can best move forward." -Questlove

JAY-Z: Made in America is the fruit of Michael Eric Dyson''s decade of teaching the work of one of the greatest poets this nation has produced, as gifted a wordsmith as Walt Whitman, Robert Frost and Rita Dove. But as a rapper, he''s sometimes not given the credit he deserves for just how great an artist he''s been for so long.

This book wrestles with the biggest themes of JAY-Z''s career, including hustling, and it recognizes the way that he''s always weaved politics into his music, making important statements about race, criminal justice, black wealth and social injustice. As he enters his fifties, and to mark his thirty years as a recording artist, this is the perfect time to take a look at JAY-Z''s career and his role in making this nation what it is today.

In many ways, this is JAY-Z''s America as much as it''s Pelosi''s America, or Trump''s America, or Martin Luther King''s America. JAY-Z has given this country a language to think with and words to live by.
