"Graffiti, race, freight-hopping and the search for hip-hops's moral center"--Cover.
Statement of responsibility from cover.
"A mix of storytelling, journalism, and original research on a broad range of topics like suburban sprawl, hip-hop culture, wiggers, youth activism, graffiti, and Chicago, Bomb the Suburbs asks, "Should graffiti writers organize to tear up the cities, or should they really be bombing the suburbs?" But to think that this book deals only with graffiti and hip-hop is selling it short. From the role of white kids, to gangsta rap, to journalism, to breakdancing, freight-hopping, black intellectuals and graffiti, through a kaleidoscopic approach of stories, cartoons, interviews, disses, parodies, and research, Wimsatt challenges the suburban mindset wherever it is found, in suburbs and corporate headquarters, but also in cities, housing projects, even within hip-hop itself."--Jacket.
