What Em is really saying is that through his verses, through his skills and through his life in fame, has been trying to demonstrate an innate truth that all great spiritual men and women have been trying to tell us: that the spirit of God dwells within us. I.E. the kingdom of heaven, etc. He is not saying he is the direct savior of hip hop
