     Dirty South: OutKast, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, and the Southern Rappers Who Reinvented Hip-Hop
Publisher: Chicago Review Press
Author(s): Ben Westhoff

Rap music from New York and Los Angeles once ruled the charts, but nowadays the southern sound thoroughly dominates the radio, Billboard, and MTV. Coastal artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, and Ice-T call southern rap �garbage,? but they?re probably just jealous, as artists like Lil Wayne and T.I. still move millions of copies, and OutKast has the bestselling rap album of all time.

In Dirty South, author Ben Westhoff investigates the southern rap phenomenon, watching rappers �make it rain? in a Houston strip club and partying with the 2 Live Crew?s Luke Campbell. Westhoff visits the gritty neighborhoods where T.I. and Lil Wayne grew up, kicks it with Big Boi in Atlanta, and speaks with artists like DJ Smurf and Ms. Peachez, dance-craze originators accused of setting back the black race fifty years. Acting both as investigative journalist and irreverent critic, Westhoff probes the celebrated-but-dark history of Houston label Rap-A-Lot Records, details the lethal rivalry between Atlanta MCs Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy, and gets venerable rapper Scarface to open up about his time in a mental institution. Dirty South features exclusive interviews with the genre?s most colorful players.

Westhoff has written a journalistic tour de force, the definitive account of the most vital musical culture of our time.

     Iranian Rappers and Persian Porn: A Hitchhiker's Adventures in the New Iran
Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing
Author(s): Jamie Maslin

A backpacker?s charming, hilarious account of the secret world of counterculture Iran.

Iran looms large in the psyche of modern America. For decades, it has been ?the enemy,? its government taunting us and attacking our Western, secular lifestyle. That is largely the Iranian government, however, not the Iranian people. Here?s the proof.

When Jamie Maslin decides to backpack the entire length of the Silk Road, he decides to travel first and plan later. Then, unexpectedly stranded in a country he?s only read about in newspapers, he decides to make the best of it?but wonders whether he?ll make it out alive. Maslin finds himself suddenly plunged into a subversive, contradictory world of Iranian subculture, where he is embraced by locals who are more than happy to show him the true Iran as they see it?the one where unmarried men and women mingle in Western clothes at secret parties, where alcohol (the possession of which is punishable by hand-amputation) is readily available on the black market, where Christian churches are national heritage sites, and where he discovers the real meaning of friendship, nationality, and hospitality. �

This is a hilarious, charming, and astonishing account of one Westerner?s life-altering rambles across Iran that will leave you wondering what else you don?t know about Iran and its people. 24 color illustrations

     Sufi Rapper: The Spiritual Journey of Abd al Malik
Publisher: Inner Traditions
Author(s): Abd al Malik, Jon E. Graham

French rap star recounts his journey from the ghettos of Strasbourg through radical Islam to the Sufi message of universal love

? Explains how the luminous message of love in Sufism now animates Malik?s music

? Offers an intimate look at life in the ghettos and madrassas of the poorest neighborhoods in Europe

As a poor black resident in one of the notorious French banlieues (the ghettos surrounding French cities), Abd al Malik had every chance of meeting the same fate as many of his peers: drug addiction, prison, and/or an early grave. Despite his early involvement in the endemic crime that was routine in his neighborhood, his keen intelligence won him admission to some of the most prestigious schools in Strasbourg. His dual life as honor student/pickpocket ended when he converted to Islam, where again his intellect and sensitivity prevented him from entering the hate-filled spiral promoted by the fundamentalists. His distaste for the hatred they preached in the madrassas and his love of music led him to Moroccan Sufi master Sidi Hamza al-Qadiri al-Butchichi, whose message of universal love and joy now animates the rap songs of this prize-winning composer and performer.

As the singer says in his Ode to Love:
?Love the other whatever the cost and direct the struggle against yourself
The treasure of the just is buried within my chest
If there is enough for one, let?s share it, there is enough for all.?

Orelsan
Orelsan est le Meilleur Artiste Fran�ais!
http://www.orelsan7th.com/

OrelSan a remport� la bataille face � David Guetta, Olivia Ruiz, Rohff et Sliimy et gagne le prix du Meilleur

Artiste Fran�ais des MTV Europe Music Awards 2009. Il sera oppos� � chacun des 21 artistes ou groupes repr�sentant

leur pays, pour le titre de Meilleur Artiste Europ�en !

Les votes pour la cat�gorie de Meilleur Artiste Europ�en commencent d�s aujourd?hui, jusqu?au 2 novembre, date �

laquelle les 5 artistes ou groupes ayant obtenu le plus de votes, seront r�v�l�s. Le grand vainqueur de la cat�gorie

sera annonc� le 5 novembre en direct des MTV Europe Music Awards 2009.


Changement est le premier single[1] du rappeur fran�ais Orelsan. Elle est mise en ligne la premi�re fois le 22

f�vrier 2008 sur Youtube. Le clip est tourn� en Basse-Normandie.
Critiques

Selon le magazine gay T�tu[2], qui s'en prend � la chanson Changement en l'accusant d'homophobie, Orelsan s'appuie

essentiellement sur de gros moyens marketing et des paroles sexuelles, violentes, misogynes et homophobes comme �

Les gars s'habillent comme des meufs et les meufs comme des chiennes/Elles kiffent les mecs eff�min�s comme si elles

�taient lesbiennes �. Cette chanson figure sur l'album paru en f�vrier 2009 mais la pol�mique sur l'homophobie,

moins m�diatique, a pr�c�d� d'un mois celle sur les violences sexistes.

Rap fran�ais


Le rap fran�ais est la version fran�aise du rap am�ricain qui a vu le jour avec l'arriv�e de groupes comme IAM,

Supr�me NTM, Assassin ou MC Solaar. Tout en restant continuellement inspir� par les rappeurs d'outre-Atlantique, le

rap fran�ais �labore progressivement sa propre personnalit�, oscillant entre revendications sociopolitiques,

messages positifs ou festifs et tentation commerciale. Il convient de remarquer qu'on confond souvent rap et

Hip-hop, le Rap �tant une composante du Hip-Hop parmi tant d'autres (DJing, danse, graffiti).

     Our Friends the Rappers
Publisher:
Author(s): Con Chapman

Rap?that gritty, thumping substitute for music that young people listen to today-- is a mystery to most adults. As one critic put it, rap isn?t music, it?s an angry black guy yelling at you.

How untrue, and how racist! The noise that we categorize as rap now includes many white guys acting like black guys yelling at you.

The best way to understand rappers is to get to know them. Rappers are like members of the opposite sex at a college mixer--they?re just as scared of us as we are of them! After all, they may have guns, but we have lawyers. We also control our kids? allowance, except for the money they spend downloading songs after they get our credit card numbers to sign up for SAT prep sessions on line?as if!

So expand your horizons with this collection of dispatches from the world of hip-hop. And next time somebody calls you a ?ho? or a ?wanksta,? you?ll be able to join in the laughter.
