Gimme Dat Ol' Fashion Religion, Fucka!!!

In 2003 rapper DMX said he wanted to retire from rapping to become a Pastor. Former rapper and current pastor Ma$e told him to wait until "god called upon him." Well I guess god's giving him a ring cos it seems like DMX wants to be a pastor again and would like us all to not judge him for a "couple bad songs."

To my surprise (lol) he apparently has more than one "bad song." He also has some lovely songs about Jesus and prayer. Here's a little taste.

You give me the light and let me bask in your glory
So it was only right that when you ask for this story

"We Don't Give A Fuck"
"Look at him", I said after a few laughs, "Dumb nigga
Stupid is as stupid does cocksucker
Somebody shoulda told me I was fuckin wit a clown
And I think they found and let.. you.. nigga.. drown
....you know how shit get around

"Ready To Meet Him"
Our father, who art in heaven
I'm not ashamed to ask for guidance, at 27
No longer afraid to knock on your door
Not scared anymore to lose my life in the war
After what I just saw, I'm ridin' with the lord
Cause I really can't afford to lose my head by the sword

"My Niggas"
My niggas take you straight to the back & get ill
My niggas give it straight to the bank when we kill
My niggas put niggas on ice til they chill

"Prayer 3"
Lord Jesus it is you, who wakes me up every day
And I am forever grateful for your love..
.. this is why I pray

"X Is Coming For You"
IT WAS ALL FOR THE MONEY, while I'm hittin and splittin him down
from his nose to his nuts
Fire department comin, put the hose to his guts
We both know you pussy, but I ain't gonna say nuttin
Just hit a nigga off, and you can stay frontin

"Some X Shit"
Open cases got me PAYIN to stay out of jail
While these streets, got me to prayin to stay out of hell

Well, I guess with a criminal record like that, he will fit in with some of those other preachers and such...

I know he's the kind of guy I would want running a church!

Ahhh His particular road to Damascus is twisty one indeed...

I honestly hope that he does become a pastor. It'll clearly show that you don't have to be a saint to be a man of faith. (In fact, I'm beginning to wonder if having a rap sheet like DMX's is a prerequisite. It'll give you some nice anecdotes about what a terrible person you used to be while trying to draw as much money as you possibly can from your unsuspecting flock, and continuing to do the same crap you did before under the table. It happens far too often to be a coincidence, honestly).

A fine example of humanity! I endorse his coice of the priesthood as a way of life!
