The Journal is formed in response to the need for a regular publication in this rapidly expanding area of study in British academia. The publication will be composed of peer-reviewed articles and book reviews with an emphasis on British and Irish subject matter and authors. The Journal aims to take an interdisciplinary humanities approach to Hip-Hop, with an interest in publishing writing that examines how the genre intersects with and informs society, literature and history. The Journal provides a means for early-career and post-graduate academics to have their work published.
