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. Download and start listening now!
