    "An essential "Remix"" Baba Israel's text is a wonderful source for any writer, poet, rapper or fan of the hip hop genre. He delves not only into the history of hip hop and the black arts movement in theater, but also into his own rich history as a hip hopper and playwright. Faced with many troubling decisions on how to accurately deal with race and culture in his own works, Israel humbly outlines his thought process, publishes his journals of insights and setbacks, and includes excerpts from some shining successes he has accomplished on paper and on the stage, such as the script for his solo show "Boom Bap Meditations." By referencing the written work of Jeff Chang and Eric Lott amongst other writers, Israel exhibits his extensive research into the form of hip hop. His critique of many theater productions highlights his experience in the dramatic form as well. Aspiring playwrights in the energetic and emerging field of hip hop theater would be at a loss... More > without reading this book. Israel challenges what is "authentic" in the form, addressing both the personal and the universal connotations of this question with eloquence.< Less
