*Holy hip-hop or gospel rap has emerged onto the scene as a genre of music that ignites some church goers and attracts the youth.

However, is the creation of this genre philosophically corrupting the doctrine of the black Christian?

I view this new era of music as the tail wagging the dog and not the dog wagging the tail. Why would I see it this way?
