"The New H.N.I.C.brilliantly observes pivotal moments in hip hop and black culture as a whole... provocative[ly] raises the level of the hip hop discussion." Black Issues Book Review "It was naive for Todd Boyd to subtitle his bookThe Death of Civil Rights and the Birth of Hip Hop, and not to expect people to wig out." Punk Planet "Stand back! Todd Boyd brings the ruckus in this provocative look at how hip hop changed everything from the jailhouse to the White Houseand why it truly became the voice of a new generation." Alan Light, Editor-in-Chief,Spin Magazine ocirc;Elegantly script[s] the fall of the previous generation alongside the rise of a new hip-hop ethosagrave;. [The New H.N.I.C] is built on the provocative premise that this generation's hip-hop culture has come to supersede the previous one's paradigm of civil rights. Highlighting various moments in recent rap historyugrave;the controversy over OutKast's naming a single after Rosa Parks; the white negro-isms of Eminemugrave;Boyd offers hip-hop as the most suitable access point for understanding the social, political, and cultural experiences of African Americans born after the civil rights period.ouml; Village Voice "Those who are hip have always known that Black music is about more than simply nodding your head, snapping your fingers, and patting your feet.

Quincy Jones "A convincing and entertaining case that hip-hop matters, Boyd's reading [of hip hop] is nothing less than inspired." Mother Jones "If you want to understand the direction of music today, read thisbook. Boyd expertly chronicles the birth of Hip Hop, its impact on allmusic and how the language and music defines a generation." Tom Freston, CEO, MTV Networks "Boyd's main observation is simple and mostly true: "Hip-hop has rejected and now replaced the pious, sanctimonious nature of civil rights as the defining moment of Blackness." Los Angeles Times When Lauryn Hill stepped forward to accept her fifth Grammy Award in 1999, she paused as she collected the last trophy, and seeming somewhat startled said, "This is crazy, 'cause this is hip hop music.'" Hill's astonishment at receiving mainstream acclaim for music once deemed insignificant testifies to the explosion of this truly revolutionary art form. Hip hop music and the culture that surrounds itfilm, fashion, sports, and a whole way of beinghas become the defining ethos for a generation. Its influence has spread from the state's capital to the nation's capital, from the Pineapple to the Big Apple, from 'Frisco to Maine, and then on to Spain. But moving far beyond the music, hip hop has emerged as a social and cultural movement, displacing the ideas of the Civil Rights era. Todd Boyd maintains that a new generation, having grown up in the aftermath of both Civil Rights and Black Power, rejects these old s
