Go See The Doctor: Cornel West's Sketches of My Culture
RJ Smith, The Village Voice, 16 October 2001
CORNEL WEST'S Sketches of My Culture is probably the first hip-hop record by a Harvard professor. I demand that academia reciprocate and immediately put Ol' Dirty Bastard on the tenure track. Until then, Dr. Dre doesn't need to worry about Dr. West. Positive? Awwww yeah… this is some of the most eat-your-(black-eyed)-peas hip-hop to fall off the conveyor belt. It is resolutely positive, self-conscious about the integrity of its message. What Sketches needs is more Professor Griff and less gentleman-scholar.
