Summary
Hip-hop music was created by urban youth of color amid racial oppression and economic marginalization, but was quickly embraced by young people worldwide. This documentary examines the popularity of hip-hop among America's white youth and asks whether the trend is rooted in admiration, or merely a new form of stereotyping, blackface mimicry, and cultural appropriation. With commentary from Amiri Baraka, Chuck D, Russell Simmons, and others, the film also looks at African-American influence on Elvis Presley and the Rolling Stones, and presents a revealing analysis of how rapper Vanilla Ice was marketed to mainstream audiences
