Chinaka Hodge came of age along with hip-hopand its influence became inextricable from her personal interactions. Form blends with content in Dated Emcees as she
examines her love life through the lens of hip-hops best known orators, characters,
archetypes and songs, creating a new and inventive narrative about the music that shaped the craggy heart of a young woman poet, just as it changed the global
landscape of pop.

This is an absolute powerhouse of a bookTheres enough beauty and heartbreak and melancholy and humor and sorrow in here for three collections, or two lifetimes. [Chinaka Hodge] deserves a wide audience, an attentive audience, an audience that wants to be astounded.  Dave Eggers

This is poetry that, in its infinite power and intimate grace, will still turn in your mind long after the music is over. Jeff Chang

Chinaka Hodge is hands down, unequivocally, my favorite writer of words. All day. Every day. She writes with the grace of a dancer, the bars of a rapper, the heart of your best friend, and all of the swag and soul of OaklandThese are poems to read every day. To make mantras from. They are the best poems youve ever read.
Daveed Diggs, actor/rapper, star of Hamilton on Broadway

Dated Emcees is outlined in the matter of black life, streamlined through the filter of black womba smoke-filled lung in a sweat-filled club of safety and danger, and the bass of black moon Marc Bamuthi Joseph, arts activist, spoken word artist, US Artists Rockefeller Fellow
