Hold tight: black masculinity, millennials and the meaning of grime

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 is an electrifying and wonderfully confident debut from a music and culture critic with a very bright future ahead of him.
