In a moment of increasing corporate control in the music industry, Jared A. Ball analyses the colonisation and control of popular music and posits the home-made hip-hop mixtape as an emancipatory tool for community resistance. Equally at home in a post-colonial studies class and on the shelves of an indie record store, this is a revolutionary investigation of the cultural dimension of anti-racist organising in African America.
