New book 'outs' gay subculture in hip hop
Newsweek announced a new book in a Web exclusive story this week. Hiding in Hip Hop (ok - that title sucks) is the memoir of former MTV staffer Terrance Dean that "outs" the gay subculture in hip hop. The title's awful. I'm curious to read the book (more to see how it's written than for any REAL interest in the subject matter - I'm not a hip hop fan but I am an avid reader). But this article, at least, is worth a read on its own. Read it all the way to the end, some of the best of the article is on the second page.
