Inhaltsangabe: "Throughout the ghettoes of America we of the hiphop generation say 'keep it real' as a way of insisting that the truth is the only way to go. In short, there is no time for sidestepping reality."
--From the Introduction
In Keepin' It Real, writer, poet, and cultural critic Kevin Powell puts both himself and society under a microscope and creates a searingly honest collection that is both powerful and disturbing. Powell's letters and reflections take us on the dizzying tight-rope walk between two worlds. From the poverty and misery of his New Jersey childhood to the excesses and successes of his mercurial rise to prominence, it is a life lived on the cutting-edge.
Within this rich weave of musings, confession, and sometimes painful introspection, Powell confronts such issues as racism, black self-hatred, gender violence in the 90s, and his own anguished revelations about sex, love, and misogyny. He also explores the meaning and myths of the Million Man March and the influential and threatening presence of rap music.
Like that musical movement created by his contemporaries, Kevin Powell samples the sights and sounds and scenarios of American life, then reshapes them into a provocative soundtrack for our times.
Vom Verlag: If you spend a great deal of time searching for the perfect words to say to the father that never was--check out Letter to My Father in Kevin Powell's Keepin' It Real. This letter is sure to make any father think twice before walking away.
