The book deals with the rise of Hip Hop as a culture and what things have come with it. The emergence of Hip Hop is the main focus for this book, and American/world history has played a big part in the development of this artform, whether it is involving politics, race and gender, education, media, etc. It is music, an artform and culture and the research is to analyze why many others have followed this movement that is still quite young in its progression Damien wanted to show in this book, that Hip Hop is not just music, but a movement on a global scale. Although people become confused with Hip Hop's distinctions and elements that make up the culture, Damien also explains the highs and lows of a movement that has gone through many stages of progression. He talks about many things such as the rise of Black pioneers, Black entrepreneurship in the modern age of the music industry, films, the role of activists and conspiracies. With the help and opinion of others such as musicians, authors/writers, critics, feminists, politicians, and filmmakers etc, who have done their own research to conclude their own findings, Damien's research is brought to an influential conclusion. Damien's quest is to entice the reader regardless of race, colour or creed and to take the information and research provided in his book. He wants the reader to explore how they feel about these statements and findings. You can call this book 'Hip Hop's Book of Information', yet what Damien is expressly aiming to do is tell a story which challenges and asserts new findings through his research. He also wants this to be a book, which will educate, empower, and inspire others whilst also influencing the growth of Hip Hop culture.
