Abstract/Description: Hip-hop music has become relevant in the field of education due to the implications it contains for understanding social issues, race relations, and diversity. This study takes a look at how minority college student leaders experience and relate to hip-hop music and hip-hop culture. The study also critically reviews how their responses are relevant in the classroom. Sociologically, hip-hop music can be viewed from different perspectives. In my research, conflict theory is most useful for analyzing the participants' responses. Results indicate participants' struggles directly correlate with the application of hip-hop music in their lives as well as their leadership roles. Social activism is crucial to these individuals' roles. Their position on these Executive board depended on their ability to uplift their respective communities from minority statuses. Through their programming, these agencies promote the awareness of the issues that affect their community. Discussion should be continued on how effective hip-hop music can be in the classroom on the topics of advocacy for anti-discrimination, anti-racism and bringing about social change.
