The Psychology of Hip-Hop

(Author) Terence MCphaul

The Psychology of Hip Hop is a provocative examination of the world of Hip Hop, and how this music genre has shaped the American landscape. Going where no one else dares, The Psychology of Hip Hop effectively explains behaviors of some of the best known Hip Hop stars, like 50Cent, Eminem, Jay-Z, T.I., Lil' Kim and Snoop Dogg. Think you know? Guess again! McPhaul, a Mental Health Therapist and Personal Advisor to some of the world's biggest entertainers, explains what the media only speculates about. The Psychology of Hip Hop outlines the complex maze of R. Kelly's sexual indiscretions and the heinous exploitation of Hip Hop phenomenon B2K. In addition, The Psychology of Hip Hop answers questions such as, is Sean "P.Diddy" Combs really a Psychopath? And, studies if Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace and Tupac Shakur died as a result of an East Coast versus West Coast rivalry, or if greed of record company executives was the cause of their untimely deaths. The Psychology of Hip Hop surveys the impact of racism and the influence of legal professionals on the music genre, and in the chapter "Pop Diva Takes A Dive" finally answers the question, did Bobby Brown really ruin Whitney Houston?
