Title:Hip Hop Made Me
Author(s):Isra Shatat
Subject(s):Islam, identity, music, hip hop, soul, reality, struggle, message
Abstract:Islam has used the Hip Hop culture in many ways to deliver the message of the religion but most importantly to bring people together through similar interests and beliefs. This paper discusses the level of impact of Islam on Hip hop as a way of life. Containing several insights from both Muslim students affected by Hip Hop, artists influenced by Hip Hop, and even people influenced by the Hip Hop culture, this paper elaborates on how communities of people who share the same love have been changed for the better through Hip Hop.
