Read full description of the books:
The Message is a literary mixtape of wisdom that has been culled from the all-time greatest hip-hop songs. Author Felicia Pride examines a wide range of hip-hop songs and artists, interpreting life through their lenses. Growing up with hip-hop, she has come to realize the way it shaped how she thinks, writes, reacts and how it has helped to make her the person that she is today.
By incorporating her experiences and reflections with the rappers’ messages, Pride shares the wisdom she has learned from hip-hop and focuses on the valuable influence the music has on its audience. With each life lesson aptly titled after a hip-hop song—such as Kanye West’s Welcome to Heartbreak, EPMD’s Please Listen to My Demo, Nneka’s Heartbeat, or Public Enemy’s Fight the Power—The Message explores spirituality, success, love, business, and more through hip-hop.
The Message turns the often negative perceptions of hip-hop completely around, offers a fresh perspective on why the culture is loved worldwide, and simultaneously provides motivational material for the hip-hop generation taken from its own unique artistic expression. In her introduction the author writes, “This book is about searching for the power within and using motivational aspects of hip-hop music to help us successfully maneuver our worlds.”
The Message unleashes the power in the music and leaves readers with a soundtrack of wisdom to incorporate in their own lives.
