Christian hip hop (originally gospel rap, also known as holy hip hop or Christ hop) is a form of hip hop music which uses Christian lyrical themes to express the songwriter's faith. Only during the 1990s did the term "Christian hip hop" become descriptive of this type of music. The audience is typically Christian, but the music is also used in missions work for the purpose of evangelization. Christian rap and hip hop artists are professed Christians in most cases, and use the fact that they are urban or suburban as a positive issue used to spread their religion. Like all Christian music, it can be experienced as Christian worship.
