Not Digging the Beat, Clutch Magazine, June 1, 2008

In his new book All About the Beat, McWhorter dismisses the popularly held belief that hip-hop is the savior of black America, doing for African-Americans today what the civil rights movement did in the Sixties. Taking particular issue with conscious rappers who, he says, chronicle the community's problems without offering solutions, McWhorter insists that the answers to this generation’s troubles lie in political activism not lyrical vandalism against the powers-that-be. . .
