Carthage, NC, United States, October 30, 2019 – DonnaInk Publications releases Faces of Rap Mothers, by Candy Strother DeVore Mitchell. This is a book about the women involved in the lives of rap and hip-hop’s superstars. As a compilation of works – this title includes back stories from women who have supported rap and hip-hop artists dating as far back as the 1970’s. Surprisingly, in the compilation, when revealing the history of the development of rap and hip-hop’s legendary artists – predominantly from the West Coast, readers learn unlike the Italian-American crooners of the 1930’s to 1950’s who appeared slated to excel through their Italian heritage and its influence on media during their era . . . these rap and hip-hop artists literally sprang up among localities in an unplanned fashion – no one was pulling strings to ensure these artists reached epic results. Yet, the rap and hip-hop community, developed with a strong camaraderie where the performers happenstance into each others lives.
This fact, along with a host of others, makes Faces of Rap Mothers an intriguing read. On its face (no pun intended) the title sounds like a fan publication sharing factoids using the superstar’s status as an integer or hook to ignite sales. In actuality, the title delivers background on the origins of rap and hip-hop, tells intimate stories of the women who support the industry’s icons, and shares unique information, such as where The Jackson Five practiced and learned to play instruments, sing and dance. Most interesting is how this group of successful artists rose from all over the country, grew to know one another – typically while not famous – remained loyal as friends and associates to this day and reached goals that rose from parallel silos almost simultaneously without necessarily interacting in regard to achievement of their successes. A sense of fate results that turns the ideology of the formation of rap and hip-hop on its head. Certainly, the backstories didn’t map to what this reviewer anticipated. This is a book that is worthy of purchase and review, especially with fans of the genre.
