Lubin's analysis focuses on the identities and actions of communities that translate their politics and poetics into other discursive forms, seeking liberation. "Seriously" reading global hip-hop as a transnational linkage of the voices of the dispossessed and oppressed, Lubin argues that reading and understanding the new geography of liberation that such discursive communities create is also a way of recognizing how such spaces and forms of community - the borderless and refugee - are always already breaking out of fixed rhythms and identities to produce new belongings and beats.
