Wiggaz With Attitude: My Life as a Failed White Rapper
Andrew Emery, author
Rapping into a hairbrush, breakdancing on the kitchen floor, carrying around the world's smallest, quietest ghetto-blaster: in 1980s Britain, long before the world has heard of Eminem, how does an aspiring white teenage rapper keep going in the face of universal ridicule. Wiggaz With Attitude is a unique and hilarious account of both the author's attempts to become Leeds' greatest ever hip-hop star, and of hip-hop itself. A new sound that changed the way we dance, dress and talk, it gave the author's generation a fresh perspective on the world. This is their story, told through one wannabe rapper's rise and fally. Mostly fall.
