Tracing the Hip-Hop Generation's Impact on Brands, Sports, & Pop Culture

By Erin O. Patten

Hip-Hop culture has had a profound impact on marketing in the past two decades and it provided an intersection for brands, sports, and popular culture. Erin O. Patton documents this impact in his new book, Under the Influence—Tracing the Hip-Hop Generation’s Impact on Brands, Sports, & Pop Culture. 

Adam Graves, senior vice president of Deutsch Advertising says of Under the Influence and Patton: “If there are any marketers out there that still think they can ignore the urban market they’d better think again...This isn’t just a book for so-called urban marketers; this should be mandatory reading for every marketer in the country.”
