This is sanctified sick, this is player pentecostal

from Killer Mike – R.A.P. Music Lyrics on Rap Genius


For Killer Mike, black music (rap, jazz, etc.) is a kind of oxymoron: “sanctified sex,” that is sex, usually taboo, but here given religious blessing; and “player pentecostal”—though we might not think of hustlers as religious figures, for KM, they are in a sense.
