About this book


Based on more than five years of anthropological fieldwork in Sao Paulo, Brazil, this book highlights race, class, gender and territory to argue that Brazillian hip hoppers are subjects rather than objects of history and everyday life. This is the first ethnography in English to analyze Brazilian hip hop.
