The Church of Hip-Hop

The political, religious & socio-economic conditions of the African-American communities birthed hip-hop, in the words of OG Q-Tip. It was in response to Iggy Azalia’s rants about her role in pop-culture. I don’t listen to her music. I listen to real hip-hop. Take that as you will.
