HOLD TIGHT is the book that kick started the ‘Grime Library’. Bursting into bookshops in July 2017 to rave reviews and a sold out event at Rough Trade East.. Celebrating over sixty 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.

Hold Tight

Boakye also examines the representation of masculinity in the music and the media that covers it. Both a love letter to Grime and an investigation into life as a black man in Britain today, HOLD TIGHT is insightful, very funny and stacked with sentences you’ll want to pull up and read again and again.

Available in store and online.
