Notes and Editorial Reviews

This wild compilation of hip-hop influenced "speech" pieces shows the blurring lines of serious and popular art. Curated by Mendi + Keith Obadike, one of 'Crosstalk's goals was to consider how our ways of listening to American speech music across genres has changed since hip-hop brought speech music into the mainstream. This collection presents an eclectic and exciting sampling of speech-music, cutting across genres and generations.
