  1. Islam, in particularly the Nation of Islam has had a big impact on hip hop. No doubt! Just look at how many artists have accepted the religion and put it into their lyrics.

  2. Islam has produced the consciousness in the music of many artists...even if they don't admit it. Min. Farrakhan has especially influenced hip hop.
