A Mixtape Manifesto

Book - 2011
Rate this:
In a moment of increasing corporate control in the music industry, where three major labels call the shots on which artists are heard and seen, Jared Ball analyzes the colonization and control of popular music and posits the homemade hip-hop mixtape as an emancipatory tool for community resistance. I mix what I like! is a revolutionary investigation of the cultural dimension of antiracist organizing in the Black community. Blending together elements from internal colonialism theory, cultural studies, apolitical science, and his own experience on the mic, Jared positions the so-called "hip-hop nation" as an extension of the internal colony that is modern African America, and suggests that the low-tech hip-hop mixtape may be one of the best weapons we have against Empire. -- p. 4 of cover.
