Blue Note Preaching in a Post-Soul World
Finding a Rhythm

Hip-Hop & the Church

I was intrigued by this passage from Otis Moss, III's Blue Note Preaching:

Now remember that Hip-Hop is the first cultural creation that does not explicitly come out of the church. . . .  Hip-Hop is standing outside of the church looking in the window because no one is raising questions about poverty and deindustrialized urban landscapes . . . .   Young people become the Griot to be able to speak prophetically when preachers said, "We will not speak."
