Abstract: This thesis investigates the consumption and appropriation of hip hop culture by white youth, and possible effects of these phenomena. While hip hop has gained much attention for its controversial and explicit lyrics, little research has been done to examine how white appropriation and consumption of this typically black cultural form effects race relations. Beginning with a summary of hip hop's development and influences, this thesis then addresses the ways in which hip hop culture is appropriated and offers some explanations for this phenomenon. Following, is a discussion of the fabricated authenticity of hip hop, in both lyrical content and creation of images, to successfully market and sell records. The remainder of the thesis examines the potential effects on both the black community and white adolescents' understanding of race, as well as possible solutions to some of the problems white consumption and appropriation may pose for race relations.
