The Plot against Hip Hop is a noir novel set in the world of hip-hop culture. The fatal stabbing of esteemed music critic Dwayne Robinson in a Soho office building is dismissed by the NYPD as a gang initiation. But his old friend, bodyguard, and security expert D Hunter, suspects there are larger forces at work.
D Hunter's investigation into his mentor's murder leads into a parallel history of hip hop, a place where renegade government agents, behind-the-scenes power brokers, and paranoid journalists know a truth that only a few hard-core fans suspect. This rewrite of hip-hop history mixes real-life figures with characters pulled from the culture's hidden world, including Jay Z, Kanye West, and Russell Simmons.

Memories of Tupac, Biggie and and East and West Coast beef/
The sound effects/ and the Voice inflections made you feel like you were there right in the story.
I re listened and returned to different parts didn't want to miss a beat.
I would recommend that people read the whole D Hunter series. I'm hooked.
"The Hidden truth"
Yes I would recommend this book to a friend... It was exciting as it answered questions an old school hip hop person like me has in the back of their mind..
The revelation of HIP HOP's power..
While I enjoyed the story line and the plot looking forward to part 2. I would recommend another reader maybe Cary Hite or someone similar. The garbled speaking made it impossible to continue with the story flow without going back to hear it again .
