Since when did blasphemy become the standard in hip hop?

Now granted, rappers have always (on a broad level) expressed many different views on religion and personal beliefs. From the Five Percenters, Muslims, and Christians every religion has been reflected through some of our favorite artists.

But lately, it's almost a requirement to drop some blasphemous shit in your tracks, albums, artwork, etc.

Kanye and Jay take it to another level with almost every song theyve dropped in yhe past 2 years having some sort of anti-Christian shit in it, but now you got Game, Meek, and just a gang of dudes clownin the religion. Am I the only one that feels this way?

    Nope. but no one will speak on it. Now if someone went the same route on Islam it'll be all kinds of beef

    What about putting Muhammad on my album cover/chain.....oh shit they gonna put a Jihad on me for that no way

    How about dissing Scientology in one of my verses.....damn Tom Cruise bout that life I'll never get a break in Hollywood doing that...

    So all that's left is one of the religions that tries to keep us black folk united and peaceful.....shit if it gets me more money I'm all for it

    It was originally done for shock value (that "I can't believe he said that" kind of reaction), but the more talented emcees have moved past that.

    How? everybody knows that is a main theme in the bible that we are born sinners and only way to be saved is to confess Jesus is savior. not trying to get preachy just saying

    Really majority of Hip Hop artists are agnostic/atheist but just afraid to admit it because they'll lose fans and money, so they'll slip in blasphemous phrases for just "shock value".

    I think niggas like Jay-z know religion has questions that can't be answered, and they play on that to keep people talking. Its like free publicity. Same as all that Illuminati bullshit. They do that shit so u pay attention to all their music and people eat it up.

    Look @ the cover art for WTT. Cmon son. Its blatant. Im not religious so the shit dont bother me.
    What u think he meant "fuck all these fairytales"? he talkin about Biblical stories that are basically myths.

    So if a nigga don't "praise god" in his acceptance speech, he's blasphemous? Is god on the fuckin Grammy board? God giving out BET and MTV awards?

    God gave the talent, drive and hard work to write those rhymes, stay up all night in the studio to create great music, reap the benefits off it to get out whatever negative situation they've been in before they made it and to help their homies/associates. So basically you have those that thank The Most High is actually genuine with it...everyone seem to forget it was Hip Hop that saved some lives.

    Here u go trollin. U misreadin my post. Im not advocating for one side or another, im just pointing out the intent.
    I could give a fuck who u thank @ an award show. But i still notice the change.

    As for the cover art on watch the throne, i take it as Jay n Ye making fun of Christianity cuz (as stated before) its the safest religion to attack.
