So I get this book in the mail over the weekend. Its called Understand Rap, and it came out in October of 2010, so its still kinda relevant. A few months back. In a nutshell, it takes some of the more memorable (or mind-bending) hip-hop lyrics of the past couple years and deciphers them in the most plain and blatantly “white” way possible. Its actually quite a hilarious read and time killer. And at the very least, its an off the wall, yet unique, coffee table book of sorts. Aside from Rick Ross, there weren’t really any Miami rappers quoted. But above, I scanned a couple pages of the sort of Miami related quotes and a couple general more famous lines so you can get an idea of what the book consists of.
