Summary
"The contributors in Urban God Talk: Constructing a Hip Hop Spirituality argue that the prevailing narrative of hip hop offering nothing in the way of religion and spirituality is false. From its beginning, hip hop has had a profound spirituality and advocates religious views--and while not orthodox or systemic, nevertheless, many in traditional orthodox religions would find the theological and spiritual underpinnings in hip hop comforting, empowering, and liberating."--Publishers description
