Friendship, Love, and Hip Hop investigates how young Black men live and change inside a mental institution in contemporary America. While the youth in Hejtmanek's study face the rigidity of institutionalized life, they also productively maneuver through what the author analyzes as the 'give' - friendship, love, and hip hop - in the system.

Is he real or not real? I want to do this for the rest of my life. Robert a City banker and Jolie an actor-turned-gruesome-thriller writer and their charming but troublesome son Lanny are new arrivals in the unnamed commuter village.
