Abstract: This thesis places hip hop and rap music in a context of cultural resistance capable of encouraging electoral participation among youth. Through discussions of African American folklore and West African musical, oral, and social elements, I situate rap as part of a tradition of resistance to dominant, white society. In tracing the history and development of hip hop culture, I illustrate its potential for articulating critiques of the injustices suffered by African Americans and other minorities. I also illustrate the shortcomings of hip hop in trying to effect social change through socially conscious lyrics or superficial involvement in social organizations or causes. Instead, I endorse current hip hop oriented social and political organizations which use the popularity of rap celebrities to attract youth to their groups. These organizations are engaged in grassroots activities that cultivate youth leadership. I conclude that while these organizations are making sufficient progress, they are too new and unorganized to bring about any visible policy change.
