Questlove on hip-hop culture

New York magazine has an essay series by Questlove that I’ve really enjoyed reading:

1.When the People Cheer:How Hip-Hop Failed Black America

2. Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems: How Hip-Hop Failed Black America, Part II

3. Questlove’s How Hip-Hop Failed Black America, Part III: What Happens When Black Loses Its Cool? I’m interested in the idea of cool as related to creativity rather than passivity.

4. Questlove: Disco and the Return of the Repressed — How Hip-Hop Failed Black America Part IV

5. Questlove Answers Reader Questions About His ‘How Hip-Hop Failed Black America’ Series

6. Questlove: Does Black Culture Need to Care About What Happens to Hip-Hop?
