Bomb the Suburbs, Graffitti, Race, Freight-Hopping, and the Search for Hip Hop's Moral Center. William Upski Wimsatt In this blockbuster word-of-mouth, underground classic, William "Upski" Wimsatt attacks the whole idea of the suburb as "an unfortunate state-of-mind.., founded on fear, conformity, shallowness of character, and dullness of imagination." Upski uses his coming of age in the Chicago break dancing and hip hop scene as a springboard into a totally original discussion of american identity. Bomb the Suburbs is a brilliant dissection and advocacy for a real alternative, using art, parody, reportage and downright good writing.
