See all formats and editions

HOLD TIGHT is a book about being black, British and born after 1980.

It's also about Grime.Celebrating over fifty key songs that make up Grime's DNA, Jeffrey Boakye explores the meaning of the music and why it has such resonance in the UK.

Boakye also examines the representation of masculinity in the music and the media that covers it.Both a loving critique of Grime and an investigation into life as a black man in Britain today, HOLD TIGHT puts seminal tracks like Moschino, Creeper, Next Hype, Too Many Man, Rhythm and Gash, I Can C U and...Do They Know It's Christmas 2004, into perspective.Insightful, very funny and stacked with sentences you'll want to pull up and read again, HOLD TIGHT rolls deep, giving a context to Grime that hasn't been given before.
