This paper increases the query if American rap track might be noticeable as status within the culture of the Beat new release, an inventive and ideological circulate that's handled because the starting place of the time period Counter tradition because it should be utilized in the additional progress.

The definition of this time period relies on 3 texts: “The tradition of Spontaneity” through Daniel Belgrad, “The White Negroe” through Norman Mailer and “The Philosophy of the Beat iteration” by way of Jack Kerouac. those works have in universal that they're all fascinated by the phenomenon of the yankee Counter-Culture normally and with the Beat new release specifically - be it from Kerouac's own viewpoint, from a latest one like Mailer's, or from the scholarly point of view of Belgrad.
