MC Keyboard vs. Fontie Smalls

On Galleycat, Emily Gould tracks a dangerous new trend (I adulterated this quote with links to Booklist reviews):

Rudolph Delson‘s ‘Maynard & Jennica‘, Gary Shteyngart‘s ‘Absurdistan‘ and Benjamin Kunkel‘s ‘Indecision‘ all have something in common besides the frequency with which they’re spotted on NYC’s subways: These popular books all contain homages to hip-hop.

 After reading Gould’s MC battle, I can’t decide whether to shout “Free Bird!” or “Don’t quit your day job!”
