This collection of posed portraits by Janette Beckman and quickie bios by B. Adler has sanitized rap, presumably for our protection. Only the lyrics printed here hint at the liberating edge the best of this music provides. With so many sweet and charming photos, Rap is a mild-mannered primer to a delightfully in-your-face musical style.
