The History of Gangster Rap is a deep dive into one of the most fascinating subgenres of any music category to date.

Filled with interviews with key players such as Snoop Dogg, Ice-T, and dozens more, as well as sidebars, breakout bios of notorious characters, lists, charts, and more, The History of Gangster Rap is the be-all-end-all book that contextualizes the importance of gangster rap as a cultural phenomenon.

"History has so often been written by the victors, that you very rarely ever get the real story behind anything. So it's really important to hear from the people that were there, which is exactly what Soren Baker shares in this book. He writes about it and he's honest about it."–The D.O.C.
