Rap is one of the most urban, down-and-dirty forms of musical expression around. That makes it a perfect fit – should you get the notion – for spinning a dark tale of misdemeanors, shady characters and sleazy setups.

The City is described as a “rap opera written entirely in rhyme, performed as one continuous song.”
