Drawing from educational and natural intellectual/activist groups as assorted as African American reports and women's reports, postcolonial experiences and sexuality reports, heritage and philosophy, politics and economics, and sociology and ethnomusicology, Hip Hop's Inheritance calls into query one-dimensional and monodisciplinary interpretations or, fairly, misinterpretations, of a multidimensional and multivalent type of pop culture that has more and more come to incorporate cultural feedback, social observation, and political analysis.
