I see this being interchanged a lot however are they the same? Urban lit is more of a demographic thing, for example the Valley? Urban. 90210? Urban. Where Valley Girls reside? Urban.
Street lit? That is more of a mentality. An attitude. Not necessarily a place. It is a novel that is most likely written in the hood. The characters speak in slang, most likely drugs, money, sex and a high yellow broad. Yeah I said it. Go to the street lit section, actually african american because they just lump all of us together no matter what genre we write and see who is on the covers. Ninety-eight percent of the chicks on the cover are light skinned, not bitter just being real. Anywho…
Do you realize the difference? Next time you see urban don’t assume it is street ok?
Peace and luv!
