Christian hip hop
Christian hip hop is a form of hip hop music that uses Christian-themed lyrics as a tool for expressing the songwriter's faith. While many mainstream hip hop artists include brief acknowledgements of faith, such as DMX, Nas and Tupac Shakur, these are not typically considered Christian hip hop artists, as their lyrics do not generally thematically reflect their religious beliefs.
Michael Peace was the first artist to produce Christian hip hop. dc Talk was also an early pioneer, with a more pop sound in 1988. Later, the Gospel Gangstaz fused G funk with Christian lyrics in 1994 (see 1994 in music) with their debut, Gang Affiliated .
