About Growing Up Hip-Hop:

In an era when many question if "hip-hop is dead," Growing Up Hip-Hop definitively testifies to hip-hop's insistence to live. In this collection, award winning poet kahlil almustafa captures the evolutionary experiences, boldness, politics, dysfunction, contradictions and healing that have defined the hip-hop generation. Known by many as the Poet Laureate of Hip-Hop, almustafa has performed at open mics, universities, prisons and rallies across the country. Growing Up Hip-Hop chronicles the growth of one young man, leaving the reader with inspiration for action and a formula for change.
