The Rap Attack: African Jive to New York Hip-Hop

Boston: South End Press, 1984.

First edition. 168 pp. Bound in publisher's illustrated wraps. Very Good+ with slightly bumped corners, light wear.

An early history of hip-hop culture and music in America, photo-illustrated in black-and-white. Among the book's strengths, Toop covers a lot of the DJ culture of the late '60s and '70s that other, later hip-hop histories have glossed over, as well as continuities between the then nascent hip-hop scene and earlier cultures of doo-wop, funk, and soul.
