I must admit that hip-hop/rap has never been my “thang.” However, I’d been hearing lots of “noise” about Hip-Hop in Houston, the recent tome that chronicles the hip-hop culture of that city, which is a major hub of the genre.
I spoke with the author, Mr. Maco Faniel, about the intersection of hip-hop and homophobia. Read Hip-Hop in Houston in its entirety at www.baltimoreoutloud.com/thinking-outloud/mood-swings/item/2584-hip-hop-in-houston
Greetings! My latest Huffington Post article, “Maco L. Faniel, Hip-Hop in Houston Author, Talks Hip-Hop in Homophobia,” has been published! It’s a review of the new tome that chronicles Houston’s hip-hop culture. Substantive, poignant and engrossing, Hip-Hop in Houston provides a deeper, fuller understanding and a better appreciation of the genre as a whole.
