Controversial . . . what better word sums up the totality of the hottest musical form in America? The whole art form is an attitude, one of rebellion, social consciousness, and renegade individualism; it deals with racism, sex, drugs, politics, life on the street and in the ghetto. Rap features the photography of Janette Beckman and includes the actual lyrics from many popular hip-hop songs.
