Where You're At: Notes from the frontline of a hip hop planet (Paperback)
Product Descriptionby Patrick Neate
Spurred by his own deep love of the music and its central role in his life, but troubled by the current state of mainstream hip-hop culture, Patrick Neate sets off to discover if the music and culture that mean so much to him have retained true cultural vitality and significance anywhere in the world. Covering five continents and cities as diverse as New York, Rio, Tokyo, and Johannesburg, Neate discovers hip-hop reinventing itself internationally, locally, and individually. Spirited and idealistic, yet grittily insightful, Where You're At is a global tour of a small planet, with hip-hop, in all its multifarious forms, as the main character. 'Neate takes us on a very personal tour of hip hop...this is the story of a genuine culture told by a genuine enthusiast. A brilliant read, even if you know jack about hip hop.'
