Bun B, one half of the legendary rap group U.G.K., made an appearance on the Hot 97 Morning Show late last month where he discussed a new course on religion and hip-hop that he’s teaching.
The rapper was asked about Christian rap group DC Talk by host PeterRosenberg and if they are discussed in the curriculum of the class that he teaches alongside professor Anthony B. Pinn at Houston’s Rice University.
Rosenberg laughed about the group, while host Ebro bounced back by citing Lecrae as a good example of faith-based hip-hop. Bun B replied to both hosts by relating both acts.
“But you’ve got to understand there probably wouldn’t be a Lecrae without DC Talk,” said Bun B in response to the conversation.
Rosenberg admitted to mocking the group and similar acts in Christian rap which then sparked a discussion over the actual label and how it affects the perception of an artist.
