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?

    Won't hurt you if you don't listen to it....

    Some songs on religion are GOAT material though:

    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

    crying ass nigga... America is a predominantly Christian nation. Not Islam or Atheist. Fuck are they supposed to talk about?
    do you understand what im getting at?? WHAT WHITE PPL THINK, AND WHAT THEY DEFINE THINGS AS IS NOT THE STANDARD YOU SHOULD BE GOING BY. That is of course, if you are not mentally defeated by the complex of white supremacy, where everything whites do is the "right" way, where having straight hair and lightskin is "beautiful" but dark skin and nappy hair is "ugly"
    You're doing it wrong. You take one and really fuck them up; make an example to the other kids. Like grab the small bitch and gouge her eyes out with your thumbs. Then curb stomp her.

    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.
