This study examined the relationship of the Hip Hop culture on the attitudes of African-American young adults toward marriage, education, and family. The linkages between Hip Hop culture on African-American young adults' attitudes have only recently been studied; much more work remains to improve our understanding of this relationship. The target population for the research was composed of young adults' ages 18-24. One hundred and eleven respondents were selected, utilizing nonprobability convenience sampling from among the participants of the selected Atlanta site for the study. In sum, there was no statistically significant relationship established between Hip Hop culture on the attitudes of African-American young adults toward marriage, education, and family.
