Summary

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.

The Hidden truth

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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..

What did you like best about this story?

The revelation of HIP HOP's power..

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

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 .
