Originating as a cluster of outcasts from the Nation of Islam's Harlem mosque in the 1960s, the Five Percenters are hugely important in modern pop culture, counting 50 Cent and The Wu-Tang Clan among their ranks. Knight's compelling work is the first detailed account of the movement, which is inextricably linked with black empowerment, Islam, New York, and hip hop. It contains unrivalled insider access to the movement's elders, oral histories, and community literature.
