Haunting of Hip Hop by Bertice Berry

Book Description

Harry "Freedom" Hudson is the hottest hip-hop producer in New York City, fast getting rich on the innovative sounds that put his artists on the top of the charts. Used to getting what he wants, Harry's sights are set on an irresistible old house in Harlem - and he plans on moving in as soon as the papers can be drawn up. The house, after all, has been abandoned for years. Or has it? Rumours are rife in the neighbourhood that the house is haunted; that mysterious music, shouts, and sobbing can be heard late at night. Ava, Harry's strong-willed, no-nonsense agent, dismisses these tales - until she opens the door and finds an eerie, silent group of black people, young and old, gathered around a man holding an ancient African drum. They are waiting for Harry and bear a warning that touches his very soul: "We gave the drum back to your generation in the form of rap, but it's being used to send the wrong message." Sure to stir up controversy about the impact of rap culture, THE HAUNTING OF HIP HOP is a musically poetic reminder of the importance of honouring the past as a means of moving safely and firmly into the future.
