PSYCHOLOGY OF HIP HOP AUTHOR ATTENDING NATIONAL BLACK ARTS FESTIVAL IN ATLANTA

ATLANTA, July 8, 2005
Author of the highly controversial tome about the psychological impact of Hip Hop, Mental Health Therapist, and Personal Advisor to the stars Terence McPhaul, is signing his latest book, The Psychology of Hip Hop, at National Black Arts Festival July 15 through the 24th, one of the nations largest events of this kind. McPhaul states, the Atlanta community has done a fantastic job of blending the aesthetic, entertaining and educational, creating a brand that favors diversity and fosters movement towards cultural competence.

The former Hazardous Materials Chemist and red carpet regular wrote the best-selling treatise The Celebrity Psyche, which provided a treasure map into the minds of numerous celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, Sean P.Diddy Combs, Bill Gates, Jennifer Lopez and Martha Stewart. McPhauls latest release, The Psychology of Hip Hop, has received global attention because of its candid assessment of Hip Hop music, and Hip Hops impact on human behavior.

Known for his unapologetic delivery of the facts, The Psychology of Hip Hop features chapters such as Pop Diva Takes a Dive, No White Lady I Dont Want Your Purse, R. Kelly: Prodigy or Pedophile and The Exploitation of B2K.

The book is not just about the negativity surrounding Hip Hop, but is more an assessment of how someone can take a valid art form and turn it into something negative, says McPhaul. Also being released this summer is McPhauls book Psycho The Unauthorized Biography of Sean P.Diddy Combs

McPhaul is regularly sought by program directors of TV talk shows and national media as an expert in the field of Mental Health, to deliver perspective or respond to programming regarding social and behavioral issues. McPhaul has appeared as a Mental Health expert for Court TV, and Bill OReillys The OReilly Factor for FOX News.
