Summary

Todd Boyd explores the selling of the "gangsta" mentality in today's cultural marketplace. In analyzing the range of images from the O. J. Simpson trial to Snoop Doggy Dogg, Am I Black Enough for You? looks at the way in which the nuances of ghetto life get translated into the politics of popular culture, and especially the way these politics have become such a profitable venture, for both the entertainment industry and the actual producers of these topical narratives.
