Is hip hop just a euphemism for a new religion?

from Kanye West (Ft. Kid Cudi & Raekwon) – Gorgeous Lyrics on Rap Genius


A euphemism (e.g., calling a rich schizophrenic lady eccentric when you mean batshit) is a nice way of saying something not-so-nice.

For Kanye, hip-hop has the same bullshit mystical trappings as organized religion (Q: who is the Pope of Hip-hop tho?) (A: you get elected Pope so they’d have to have an election at next year’s Source Awards).
