ARM 18 Minutes of Funk - The Re-up Gospel

It is difficult for me to not marry the sacred and the secular.  This impulse informs all of my work in studying the history of African American music.  It also, as far as I can tell, is why scripture tells us God made man in Jesus who walked this Earth.

Here are four hip hop songs loosely organized to parallel the story of Holy Week: first, the people's rejection of the Son of Man, Judas' betrayal, the faithful keeping vigil and the ultimate resurrection of Jesus Christ.
