Featuring Todd D. Snyder, author of Beatboxing: How Hip-Hop Changed the Fight Game
With special guest Bronze Nazareth
Created and hosted by writers Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth, Squawkin’ Sports is an ongoing series featuring book chats with grown-up authors writing about grown-ups playing kiddie games. For this installment, Sauer and Roth chat with author and boxing aficionado Todd D. Snyder about his new book Beatboxing, along with special guest and Wu-Tang producer Bronze Nazareth. Interviewing champion fighters and music legends, Snyder uncovers the unique connection between hip-hop and the sweet science, tracing a grassroots cultural movement from its origins in the South Bronx to its explosion across the globe and ultimately into the charged environment of the prize ring. Step into a world of rap moguls turned fight promoters, boxers turned rappers, and rappers turned boxers; join us virtually for the final Squawkin’ Sports event of 2021!
Step into a world of rap moguls turned fight promoters, boxers turned rappers, and rappers turned boxers. From Mike Tyson to Tupac, from Roy Jones Jr. to J. Prince, explore how a cultural collision forever altered the relationship between music, race, sports, and politics.
