New Book Attempts To Explain Psychology Of Hip-Hop

Author and therapist

Terence McPhaul has decided to enter the realm of Hip-Hop in his new book titled

"The Psychology of Hip-Hop."

McPhaul previously released the book "The Celebrity Psyche"

and is also a mental health therapist.

His latest book attempts to explain the behaviors of some of

Hip-Hop’s biggest stars, such as 50 Cent, Eminem, Jay-Z, Lil’ Kim and Snoop

Dogg, to name a few.

“While the subject is complex and many people have opinions,

the basis of everything that we as humans believe, think and do is psychology,”

McPhaul explained to AllHipHop.com. “The Psychology of Hip Hop lays a

groundwork, which has not happened before now. This helps us to understand why

the public is so entangled in, and consumed, by hip hop. Chapters such as ‘Pop

Diva Takes a Dive,’ ‘No White Lady I Don’t Want Your Purse,’

and ‘R. Kelly: Prodigy or Pedophile,’ among others, simply illustrate

how pervasive psychological issues are, how they are ignored, and how easily

they can grow.”

McPhaul also delves into the deaths of Notorious B.I.G and Tupac.

“My belief is that greed could be the cause of the deaths

of Biggie and Tupac,” McPhaul said. “I feel the public has been

hoodwinked into believing the East coast/West coast farce.”

McPhaul has appeared on various TV talk shows and has appeared

as a Mental Health expert for Court TV and Bill O’Reilly’s "The O’Reilly

Factor."

The Psychology

of Hip Hop can be purchased at Barnes & Noble, and book retailers worldwide.
