Publisher's Summary

The only hip-hop book series that explains the culture fully in the fewest words!

Author of "Rapper's Delight" essay currently archived at the Library of Congress

Guest speaker of BBC2 Radio "Rapper's Delight 40th Anniversary" by DJ Trevor Nelson - September 2019

Whether you are a fan of hip-hop or you are just curious about it, you will not have to look further after finding Eric Reese's The History of Hip Hop Series, and now the latest addition, The History of Trap. This concise but in-depth book explores all the distinguishing traits of what is not only a genre of music but a lifestyle. Reese traces the history of hip-hop from its beginnings in the 1970s and reveals how it changed in the next decades until it became a worldwide phenomenon. The author gives attention to the influence of hip-hop at every level, including art and fashion. He also makes valuable considerations about its originality in comparison with other genres.

With the gradual shift away from traditional hip-hop, a new style of music known as trap paved way for inner-city youth, bringing out new flavor from new and old artists all over the globe. This is now referred as the "Era of Trap". 

T.I., Waka Flocka Flame, Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, and many more brought in a new urban sound that is now competing with America‘s loudest street voice, known as hip-hop. 

This book takes you behind the scenes, giving you a fresh look at the new era of urban artistic talent that hopes to stay for many years to come.

In this book, I provide you with simple perspectives (for beginners to advanced, student to professor) of the following:

  • Origins of trap
  • Earliest influence of the trap genre
  • Examples of trap culture
  • Trap's subgenres
  • Details on fusion trap and its subgenres 
  • And much more...

As hip-hop's legacy continues to expand its sway, know for sure it's here to stay.

The History of Trap gives you a direct, straight-to-the-point history of the indisputable force of new rap and trap artists. Hip-hop lives on!
