Abstract
The Hip Hop culture has a great influence on Christian teenagers. Unfortunately, those of the Haitian community have a lack of understanding of Hip Hop. Most elders in the Haitian community view Hip Hop as the music that is corrupting their children; while their children’s view it as a way to fit-in or to assimilate into the American culture. What most Haitian American Christian teenagers are unaware of are the philosophical-spiritual religious teaching that are in Hip Hop, known as the knowledge of self or the fifth element of Hip Hop. These teachings are taught by the Universal Zulu Nation, The Nations of Gods and Earth (Five Percenters) and the Temple of Hip Hop. These teachings are antithetical to the Christian faith. This project will attempt to further deepen the Christian youth’s commitment to Jesus Christ, through discipleship. Therefore, an ethnography will be used to assess how much they know about their Haitian culture, Hip Hop culture and Christianity. Also, they will be encouraged to have a working definition of discipleship, through a series of assignment that will encourage self-assessment and creativity. The aim is to allow them to get to a place where being a Christian is their way of life.
