Hip Hop Republican is a combined music and politics blog started in 2004 by Richard Ivory.[1] Ivory says that he started the blog in part because of frustration with the belief that blacks must be Democrats.[2] The blog was credited with giving conservative blacks a sense of community during the 2008 presidential election when they were often expected to vote in solidarity with Barack Obama.[3]

The blog has since expanded to feature many other commentators alongside Ivory, including Lenny McAllister and Shirley Husar.[4] The term "Hip-Hop Republican" as popularized by the blog has become an identity for some young black Republicans.[5]
