This paper embraces an emancipatory lens to examine the interpenetration of hip-hop and religious discourses in order to demonstrate how divine love and self love are dominant in both hip-hop and Black religious culture. The essay blends ethnographic backgrounds with textual analysis to unearth some of the under-embraced considerations about hip-hop. Employing a generative and metaphorical criticism approach to selected texts of Reverend C. L. Franklin and modern day M. C. KRS-One, parallels are drawn between the traditional and non-traditional, supporting the study's claim that hip-hop can provide a sense of spirituality for those within the community. This hip-hop community seeks not to exclude, but to include and embrace all members of the human race
