- Roc the Mic Right: The Language of Hip Hop Culture
With its status convincingly argued as the best means by which to read Hip Hop culture, H. Samy Alim then focuses on discursive practices, such as narrative sequencing and ciphers, or lyrical circles of rhymers. Often a marginalized phenomenon, the complexity and creativity of Hip Hop lyrical production is emphasised, whilst Alim works towards the creation of a schema by which to understand its aesthetic.

Using his own ethnographic research, Alim shows how Hip Hop language could be used in an educational context and presents a new approach to the study of the language and culture of the Hip Hop Nation: 'Hiphopography'. The final section of the book, which includes real conversational narratives from Hip Hop artists such as The Wu-Tang Clan and Chuck D, focuses on direct engagement with the language. A highly accessible and lively work on the most studied and read about language variety in the United States, this book will appeal not only to language and linguistics researchers and students, but holds a genuine appeal to anyone interested in Hip Hop or Black African Language.
I cannot find much fault with this book because I think Alim gets it right. He gets the culture. It made me excited about hip hop studies in that the diversity among the scholars of hip hop studies can benefit greatly from the variety of perspectives. If a problem with the work must be raised it is minor in terms of what this work does.
Chapter 2 draws a connection to copula-use similarities in Arabic and Black language. Also, in chapter 4, Alim concludes with the observation that more and more African Americans are accepting Islam but does not demonstrate how he came to that conclusion.
