SiriusXM Pandora will debut a new religious-oriented hip hop channel on its flagship satellite and streaming radio service this week.

The channel, Holy Culture Radio, will launch on SiriusXM this Thursday with the debut of Prime MT Mix and Da Fixx Radio Show.

Holy Culture Radio (Channel 154) says it will be the “home for everything Christian hip-hop and [rhythm and praise].”

“From introducing upcoming artists to discussions about faith, arts, vocation, and education with legends in the industry and more, Holy Culture is tapping into [Christian hip hop} like nobody else,” the brand said in a statement.

Holy Culture Radio is based in Philadelphia.
