The People's News: The Convergence of Gospel and Hip Hop in Modern Thought
MUSC 268
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

The Convergence of Gospel and Hip Hop will survey the words and power of Gospel Music and its foray into Hip Hop. How do the words used within a culture develop and/or determine the message and meaning of said culture. If words have power, how is that power used? We will also consider the rejection of Gospel Singers who embraced the unholy and how the message evolved to expand into the formerly non sacred expanse of Hip Hop, and if it has been successful or a lesson in futility.
