By Antonio T. Tiongson Jr.
The “Hip-hop state” has been scouted, staked out, and settled by way of reporters and students alike. Antonio T. Tiongson Jr. steps into this well-mapped territory with questions geared toward interrogating how state is conceptualized in the context of hip-hop. What occurs, Tiongson asks, to notions of authenticity in line with hip-hop’s obvious blackness while Filipino formative years make hip-hop their very own?
Tiongson attracts on interviews with Bay Area–based Filipino American DJs to discover the authenticating recommendations they depend upon to carve out a distinct segment inside DJ tradition. He exhibits how Filipino American formative years involvement in DJing reconfigures the conventional obstacles of Filipinoness predicated on nostalgia and cultural hyperlinks with an idealized fatherland. Filipinos Represent makes the case that whereas the engagement of Filipino adolescence with DJ tradition speaks to the broadening racial scope of hip-hop—and of what it capacity to be Filipino—such involvement can also be troublesome in that it upholds deracialized bills of hip-hop and renders distinction benign.
Looking on the ways that Filipino DJs legitimize their position in an expressive shape traditionally linked to African american citizens, Tiongson examines what those complicated kinds of identity exhibit concerning the contours and trajectory of latest U.S. racial formations and discourses within the post–civil rights period.
