"We gon be alright:" Containment, Creativity, and the Birth of Hip-Hop

Linking the rise of carceral power, racially restrictive housing policies, a deindustrializing economy, and expanding prison populations with the emergence of hip hop, Rashad Shabazz presents a dialectic between systematic spatial containment of poor and working-class Black and LatinX Americans and the role it played in creating the world's most powerful cultural force.
