From the University of Michigan Library:
A.D. Carson refers to his album “i used to love to dream” as a mixtap/e/essay — a combination of storytelling and academic scholarship that uses sampled and live instrumentation, repurposed music, film, and news clips, and original rap lyrics to perform an engaging meditation on authenticity, belonging, and home.
The assistant professor of hip-hop and the global south at the University of Virginia published the open-access album this year with the University of Michigan Press, making it the first ever peer-reviewed rap album released from an academic publisher.
