“Eminem And Rap, Poetry & Race” Book Set For Release This Year
A book exploring the work of Eminem will be ready to buy later this year...
An Eminem book, 'Eminem And Rap, Poetry & Race', is set to be available to buy in November.
Written by Scott F. Parker and with a foreword by Talib Kweli the book explores the rapper's music as well as the stories behind some of his albums.
“Eminem is the best-selling musical artist of the 21st century," a press release for the book says.
"He is also one of the most contentious and most complex artists of our time. His verbal dexterity ranks him among the greatest technical rappers ever.”
“The content of his songs combines the grotesque and the comical with the sincere and the profound, all told through the sophisticated layering of multiple personae.”
“However one finally assesses his contribution to popular culture, there’s no denying his central place in it.”
It goes on to say the book ‘will be appreciated by Eminem fans and cultural scholars alike'.
