And I Know God Because of KRS-One

Krs-one-gospel-hip-hop Do you like your religions fresh?  Do you like the word of God dropped? What did you think of R.E.M.'s Radio Song?

If you answered any of the above questions then you are in luck.  KRS-One is starting a new religion and it's both hip and hop. Introducing The Gospel of Hip Hop: The First Instrument, coming soon to a hotel dresser near you.

The tome is 600 pages about the divinity and spirituality of hip-hop, and according to Rev. One, "I'm suggesting that in 100 years, this book will be a new religion on the earth."

This isn't your father's homemade religion.  DJ Josmith isn't laying down wax. MC Ron L. Hubz isn't rocking the mic. There's no kool-aid.  Forties?  Maybe. This is a direct line to God and it is "free from all this nonsense right now."


What are you saying? What are you playing? Who are you obeying?

Says KRS-One, "Respect Christianity, the Islam, the Judaism, but their time is up."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that actually disrespect?

Sorry, didn't mean to go all street on you.

Because he's droppin' science, droppin' history with a whole leap of style and intelligency.

In an interview with AllHipHop.com the rapper says, “Now you talk about controversy, there’s some Christian ministries if you go online, look up some ministers, they dissing right now. 'Who the hell does he think he is?' Well, I think I have the authority to approach God directly, I don’t have to go through any religion [or] train of thought. I can approach God directly myself and so I wrote a book called The Gospel of Hip Hop..."

Let he who raps in glass houses and all that.

Because we don't want to pay money to hear the same old sounds.
Watch him, he'll take hip-hop to a higher ground.

And I know because of KRS-One.

Consider his knowledge dropped.

Hey, hey, hey.

Lyrics from R.E.M. and Sublime, respectively.
