Jewish hip-hop music is growing as a form of worship.

MIAMI -

Religion and music go hand-in-hand. For hundreds of years, believers would use lyrics to echo their praises to God.

Many people have heard of gospel, contemporary Christian, but what about Jewish hip hop?  It's a growing form of worship music in the Jewish community.

There have been Jews in the hip-hop industry for decades.  The Beastie Boys were a part of the birth of hip hop over 30 years ago. Rick Rubin was the co-founder of Def Jam Records, which helped produce some of the biggest names in the music industry.   

But more recently, Jews are rapping about their faith and sharing a spiritual message to those who want to hear.

South Florida Jewish Rapper Seth “Brimstone” Schere has been in the hip-hop industry for over 20 years. 

"In my music, I try to represent the one and true living God in every word I speak and every lyric I write," said Schere.

Schere believes Jews can identify with some of the same struggles expressed in hip hop music.

“It’s part of what I’ve experience and part of what I have learned. It creates a perfect expression of what God means to be in this lifetime,” said Schere.
