Top 10 Street Lit
Books of All-Time

April 2008


Since the re-emergence of Street Lit in the late 80's a litany of Urban Fiction books have been released. Some of them good and some of them bad. The rejuvenation of the Urban Fiction genre has been spawned by the release of thousands of novels and a whole industry has sprung up around them with its own culture of celebrity authors, hip-hop fiction beefs, six-figure book contracts and million-dollar publishing houses.

With authors selling tens of thousands of copies of their titles independently, the big publishing companies have taken interest. But for now let us lets take a look back at the classic books that made this genre what it is today.
