connection I also thought that most of the behaviour present, including Ray s relationship towards his family was often quite uncomfortable to read I have a couple of other Zephaniah books before, but this one is not a re read for me T W Violence, Death (((Read Book))) ↳ Gangsta Rap ☠ School, what school My name is X Ray X So be careful how you flexI used to freestyle in me bedroomBut me daddy got

lives are at stake The Positive Negatives are determined to prove that you don t need to be a gangster to be a great rapper Probably the worst book I ve read in a long time Though the themes are contemporary and recognisable it is written in such a superficial style the characters have no depth, the story just happens without any sort of lead in, or explanation A total miss, in my opinion I had to read this for school and I still can t fathom why our teacher made us read this.It s terribly written, unrealistic, violent and promotes all the clich s there are about rappers hip hop Three boys get excluded from school and have trouble at home, they start a rap band, are immediately successful, their first single is a 1 on the charts, they win the MOBO awards, they get in a fight with another rap band, some people get shot stabbed, view spoiler it turns out it was just their manag I had to read this for school and I still can t fathom why our teacher made us read this.It s terribly

manager stirring up the fight for publicity, everyone becomes friends as he gets convicted, hide spoiler the end The characters lack any depth and the story is completely unrealistic and encourages teens to think fuck school, Imma be a rapper and have a lotta fans and mek a lotta money without any effort yo The only realistic part is where the boys get away with sexually harassing girls and only get in trouble when they get in a fight with the girls brothers, which is sad reality.I could keep ranting but I ll save you the other details that made me hate this book Just don t read it I absolutely loved this book The book that I have finished reading is a novel called Gangsta Rap, a story by Benjamin Zephaiah Benjamin s main theme of this in Gangsta Rap is that maturity and responsibility is in the traits of being a man and stick to your family though tough times Gangsta Rap is based on a problem teenager name Ray that can t seem to stay out of trouble It seems as if music is the only thing that matters to him, like he would take a bullet for music Hip Hop specifically Ray is the oldest out of him The book that I have finished reading is a novel called Gangsta

with his mother but not good terms with his father do to some altercations in the past Ray tries to focus himself by striving for him two buddies to make a real rap group I honestly think that this book was okay.personally I think it could have been better in terms on the setting which is in LONDON for Christ sake I maybe would have liked it better if it took place in the United States like a Hood for ex sample just my personally thought on how I feel about this book In my mind I have right to believe Ray and friends are a bit posers because it takes place in London an friends is Asian and his other friend is Indian and u don t usually so that in Rap I would recommend this book to anybody that likes drama family problems type of stories Also that takes place over sea like Europe or else where that involve something that people don t value as much as they do in the United States If you like stories like The Wanted you would enjoy this novel I think anybody can enjoy this novel depending on there personality or life style I would like my next book to have something to do with drama still but leaning away from rap I also would want my next book 2 be muchserious then this book

things for him start to get tougher for him as his parents decide weather he should leave home as well Even though i didn t give this book 5 stars, i still think that he is really good at getting you to imagine what s going on I also like it because it makes you think about life today for people like ray and his friends this is a really good book and i would recomend this book to anyone above the age of 12 Gangsta Rap is about a man named x ray x that droped out of school He is trying to find a purferd futer into Rap I think the one them for this book is confused i say confused because x Ray himself is confused in this book I think what im saying is, he is trying to balence education school and Rap for him thats not workin out one question i had trough out the book was if x ray never droped out of school and solved everything in a positive way, how would it all turn out i qouted that Gangsta Rap is about a man named x ray x that droped out of school He is trying to find a purferd futer into Rap I think the one them for this book is confused i say confused because x Ray himself is confused in this book I think what im saying is, he is trying to balence education school and Rap for him thats not workin out one question i had trough out the book was if x ray never droped out of school and solved everything in a positive way, how would it all turn out i qouted that because i was just visulizing if everthing went diffrent, and i see a sucsseful man I would recamend this book to readers who would like a book that is a little confusing but fun at the same time i would not recamend this book to readers that like realistic fiction because in this book,everything that happend may have happend or could have happend, that is me book review
