Who Does Hip-Hop Belong To?

  • Who does hip-hop belong to?
  • Are white artists who prosper in hip-hop robbing from black musicians? Or is music fair game for all true fans?
  • Is the history of white privilege — think of Elvis Presley and the birth of rock ’n’ roll in the 1950s — continuing with Macklemore’s Grammy Award for best rap album?
  • Should Macklemore be apologizing? Is his apology sincere? Is it appropriate?
  • Can rap music ever transcend race and class? Or is it too indelibly tied to black urban culture?
