“Jesus Walks” co-writer slams “Prosperity” preachers in new song/video
Rhymefest dropped this gem of a video and song on the Interwebs today in which he takes aim at the “Prosperity Gospel” message of televangelists and TV preachers who seem to exploit people looking for genuine salvation.
The general market, Chicago-based MC has covered Christian themes and topics in his raps before, having co-authored Kanye West’s “Jesus Walks” which won a Grammy in 2005.
NOTE: The song contains two words you probably wouldn’t want to be overheard saying in church and a couple of cleavage shots that might be distracting to some viewers.
Still, do you think Rhymefest is being too harsh here or hitting just the right tone with this branch of faith?
