Out Now: J Sumerau’s review of Jooyoung Lee’s “Blowin’ Up: Rap Dreams in South Central” #sssi #ethnography

We have just published J Sumerau’s review of Jooyoung Lee’s book “Blowin’ Up: Rap Dreams in South Central”. Sumerau who has written a number of reviews and articles for our journal says that “with this book Lee both offers a rich, ethnographic portrait of a fascinating case at the intersection of music, race/class/gender, and emerging adulthood. At the same time, though, he also utilizes this case to outline two concepts that may be incredibly useful for researchers in the ongoing pursuit of greater understanding of the actions, beliefs, feelings, and experiences of people from varied marginalized  backgrounds and social locations.”
