Hip-Hop in Africa · Prophets of the City and Dustyfoot Philosophers · By Msia Kibona Clark · Foreword by Quentin Williams · Afterword by Akosua Adomako Ampofo

Throughout Africa, artists use hip-hop both to describe their lives and to create shared spaces for uncensored social commentary, feminist challenges to patriarchy, and resistance against state institutions, while at the same time engaging with the global hip-hop community. In Hip-Hop in Africa, Msia Kibona Clark examines some of Africa’s biggest hip-hop scenes and shows how hip-hop helps us understand specifically African narratives of social, political, and economic realities.
