Hip Hop's Inheritance

Title: Hip Hop's Inheritance: From the Harlem Renaissance to the Hip Hop Feminist Movement
Author: Rabaka, Reliand
Publisher: Lexington Books, Lanham, MD
Copyright: 2011

Hip Hop's Inheritance arguably offers the first book-length treatment of what hip hop culture has, literally, inherited from the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts movement, the Feminist Art movement, and 1980s and 1990s postmodern aesthetics. By comparing and contrasting the major motifs of the aforementioned cultural aesthetic traditions with those of hip hop culture, all the while critically exploring the origins and evolution of black popular culture from antebellum America through to Obama's America, Hip Hop's Inheritance demonstrates that the Hip Hop generation is not the first generation of young black folk preoccupied with spirituality and sexuality, race and religion, entertainment and athletics, or ghetto culture and bourgeois culture.
