Résumé
Hip-hop culture has become an alternative culture for adolescents from lower-icome neighbourhoods in some Haitian cities, especialy in Raboteau, in Gonaïves commune. In this article, social learning is used as a theoretical lens for investigating the influence of hip-hop music on a group of adolescents in Gonaïves, through semi-structured interviews of fifteen teens between the ages of fourteen and nineteen. Through an in-depth analysis of the transcripts of these interviews, we describe how hip-hop music influences the behaviour of teens in Haiti’s lower-income enclaves. Findings reveal that hip-hop is an omnipresent factor in the lives of Haitian teens, impacting the way they dress and speak and even their worldview.
