Urban Fiction. Hip-Hop Lit. Street Lit. 

 Urban fiction prides itself on keeping the story real, including both the good and the bad in life.  The stories feature contemporary urban settings and realistic characters, usually African-Americans, with a fast-paced story intended to pull the reader in from page one. The language is straightforward and contemporary, meant to reflect how people truly think and speak.
