Interesting: Is Jay-Z coming out as an atheist? November 28, 2009

In his latest video, “Empire State of Mind” at the 3:05 time mark, we hear him say “Jesus can’t save you. Life starts when the church ends.”

I’m not sold on the song yet. But I’m happy to see someone with that kind of renown that Jay-Z has openly dismiss the myth of Jesus Christ. Because it is just that, myth based on prior myths of the Babalonians, et al. All those prior gods had virgin births, rose from the dead, etc. It’s formulaic.

And as far as my tastes in hip-hop, it falls in three camps. I like the strident (E.g. Public Enemy), the goofy (Ludacris, and old schoolers like Slick Rick, and Whodini), and the likes of Q-Tip.
