Spirituality in Hip Hop:
Outside of "Christian Hip Hop"
"I ain't here to argue about his facial features/ Or here to convert atheists into believers/ I'm just trying to say the way schools needs teachers/ The way Kathie Lee needed Regis/ That's the way y'all need Jesus/ So here go my single, dog, radio needs this/ They say you can rap about anything except for Jesus/ That means guns, sex, lies, video tapes/ But if I talk about God, my record won't get played, huh?/ Well, let this take away from my spins/ Which will probably take away from my ends/ Then I hope this takes away from my sins."
-Jesus Walks, Kanye West
"If I upset you don't stress, never forget God isn't finished with me yet. I feel his hand on my brain, when I write rhymes I go blind and let the Lord do his thing.
But am I less holy, cuz I choose to puff a blunt and drink beer with my homies? Before we find world peace, we gotta find peace and end the war on the streets, my Ghetto Gospel.
-Ghetto Gospel, Tupac Ft. Elton John
