Summary:In a controversial and unique study of lexicon, Mo Betta does what Merriam-Webster did for the English language; he has scrupulously compiled an authentic, comprehensive array of urban terms. Street Talk serves as the main reference guide for the Hip-Hop and Urban slang language. By collecting and combining all the various elements that influence, contribute to, and at times dictate the pulse of Hip Hop and urban "street" culture. Street Talk grew into one of the most comprehensive slang dictionaries ever written. Street Talk is, without a doubt, the most authentic Hip-Hop and urban slang dictionary to date. Despite the exclusion of derogatory terms for women, race, sexual preference, ethnicity, and religion, the book is by no means watered down or softened. The terms defined can be found everywhere in urban culture, including songs by today's most popular rappers. Drawing on his own authentic street knowledge and that of his peers, Mo Betta offers alluring insights into Hip-Hop and urban culture.
