Collin, Ross – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018

Welbeck, Timothy N. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
Hip-hop is an African folk art birthed in America. Whether one simply observes the tonal language that puffs the breath of life into the lyric prose of rap music, the poly-rhythms of the "boom-bap" rhythmic phrasings that became a fixture of New York rap music in the late 1980s, the winding syncopation from the pounding "808"…
