Well, there are actually two hard core rappers that are turning to GOD on their next albums. DMX is fresh off of the release of his seventh studio album, Undisputed, which is in stores now, and the rapper is already planning his next album. DMX has confirmed to MTV’s RapFix that his next album will be a Christian album. The rapper, who is highly religious, told AllHipHop.com that he also plans on turning his life over to the church in the near future and will stick to it and not flip flop like some other rappers out there.
Rapper #2 is a huge surprise as this rapper never really speaks about GOD in his music and usually beefs with other artists. In a recent interview with Jenny Boom Boom, West Coast rapper GAME has revealed that he has found a new faith in GOD, and it is all thanks to Kanye West!
The rapper has revealed that his new album will be called Jesus Piece, and it will be a Christian album. Check out what he said below:
“I’m calling it Jesus Piece ‘cause last year in August I got baptized and so I’ve been going to church, but I still been kinda doing me out here. I still love the strip club and I still smoke and drink. I’m faithful to my family, so I wanted to make an album where you could love God and be of God, but still get it poppin’ in your life.”
“I called in Kanye and he gave me some ideas and we had done a song called ‘Jesus Piece’ on my original album and so once I switched the title, I just kept that song and ‘Celebration,’ and I then redid all the rest of the songs to fit the concept of Jesus Piece.”
That’s pretty dope! I think Hip-Hop fans are ready for a different genre of music to start making the Billboard charts. How many times can one stand to hear “Pop That” and songs of that nature on the radio? Don’t get me wrong, I love to party to that type of music, but sometimes a little inspiration in your music is good for the soul!
Will you be watching GAME’s new reality show when it drops later this year?
