Krs-one Founds His Own Religion

Rap icon KRS-ONE has launched his own religion, complete with a 600 page 'bible' for potential followers.
The new faith is based on rap and the holy text called The Gospel Of Hip Hop: The First Instrument.
The star - real name Lawrence Krishna Parker - tells AllHipHop.com, "It explores the spirituality of hip hop, the divinity of hip hop. I'm suggesting that in 100 years, this book will be a new religion on the earth. Now you talk about controversy, there's some Christian ministries if you go online, look up some ministers, they dissing right now. 'Who the hell does he think he is?' Well, I think I have the authority to approach God directly, I don't have to go through any religion (or) train of thought. I can approach God directly myself and so I wrote a book called 'The Gospel Of Hip Hop' to free from all this nonsense garbage right now. Respect (to) the Christianity, the Islam, the Judaism but their time is up."
