Kickin the Ballistics: Reflections on the Hip Hop Generation, Power and Poverty by professor, author, activist and educator, Ralph Godbolt. “He takes aim at generations of harsh public policies, unequal access to opportunity and discriminatory practices that has led to a generational cycle of poverty, violence, addiction, under education and unemployment in America’s urban centers by using Hip Hop culture and rap music as a means to communicate the deep despair, but enduring faith of young urban Americans. “
