£54.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

New York Puerto Ricans have been an integral part of hip hop culture since day one: from 1970s pioneers like Rock Steady Crew's Jo-Jo, to recent rap mega-stars Big Punisher (R.I.P.) and Angie Martinez. Yet, Puerto Rican participation and contributions to hip hop have often been downplayed and even completely ignored. And when their presence has been acknowledged, it has frequently been misinterpreted as a defection from Puerto Rican culture and identity, into the African American camp. But nothing could be further from the truth. Through hip hop, Puerto Ricans have simply stretched the boundaries of Puerto Ricanness and latinidad.

RAQUEL RIVERA is a freelance journalist and has a Ph.D. in Sociology from CUNY. Her articles have appeared in a number of diverse publications both regionally and nationally, from Mambo Montage: The Latinization of New York, a book of essays published by Columbia University Press, to newspapers like El Diario/La Prensa and Hoy in New York; El Nuevo Dia, The San Juan Star and Claridad in Puerto Rico, and in magazines like Criticas, New York Latino, In the House and Stress.
