Dallas Native Receives Book Deal on Dallas Hip Hop Scene

Dallas native Taylor Crumpton is beaming from her exciting news that went viral on Twitter on Aug. 10. She wrote in caps, “I’m just a girl from Dallas, Texas who got a book deal to write about Hip-Hop in dirty dirty Dallas.” 

Crumpton, who now lives in Oakland, has focused on pop, politics and music writing. The Abilene Christian University alum’s bylines can be seen in Marie Claire and Nylon. During her time on campus, she advocated for Black students and wrote on topics such as reproductive justice. Crumpton then posted another tweet with a list of Amazon books to see which ones people would be interested in reading when it comes to Hip-Hop and the Africa diaspora. 

Even a reporter, Emily Bloch wrote, “Yes!!! I’ll preorder so fast. Congratulations!”
