What is Christian Hip-Hop? 

Christian hip hop is a subgenre of hip hop music that incorporates themes and messages from Christianity. As somone who grew up in the inner-city, Hip Hop was a huge part of my culture. Artists in the Christian Hip Hop subgenre often use their music as a platform to express their faith, beliefs, and values, blending hip hop rhythms, beats, and styles with lyrics that focus on spiritual and biblical based themes. These themes can include messages of hope, redemption, faith, love, and social justice from a Christian world view.

Christian hip hop can be diverse in its approach, ranging from artists who use language and imagery in their lyrics to those whose faith is more subtly woven into their music and message. Some artists may focus primarily on spreading the gospel through their music, while others address a wide range of social and personal issues from a Christian worldview.

Over the years, Christian hip hop has gained popularity and recognition both within Christian circles and in the mainstream music industry. Artists such as Lecrae, NF, KB, and Trip Lee have achieved success and have been instrumental in shaping the sound and impact of Christian hip hop globally.
