‘White Girl’s Guide to the Hip-Hop World’ is coming to the bigscreen, Twitter reacts with disapproval

'White Girl’s Guide To The Hip-Hop World' is heading to the big screen.


Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, creator and co-executive producer of MTV’s new series Sweet/Vicious which premieres in November, has been tapped to bring the book Hold My Gold: A White Girl’s Guide to the Hip-Hop World to the bigscreen.

The story, which was released in 2005 by authors Albertina Rizzo and Amanda McCall, will be turned into a movie about modern-day Pygmalion set in the hip-hop industry.

The film’s plot will reportedly follow a hotshot A&R who falls from grace and makes a bet with the head of his label that he can make anyone into a star.

The book itself is intended to serve as a comedic handbook on the history of hip-hop culture, breaking down everything from music and language to style and social etiquette.

Screams of cultural appropriation flooded the internet as soon as Deadline released the exclusive report about the book heading to the bigscreen.
