This in the Times:

Rappers Are Raising Their Churches & Roofs

The best part? Kanye on "Jesus Walks":

Mr. West, the son of a Christian marriage counselor, said
that when his father heard the song, he said, " 'Maybe you
missed your calling.' I said, 'No, maybe this is my
calling.' I reach more people than any one pastor can."

He likened "Jesus Walks" not to church teaching but to his
secular songs, which celebrate the high life without
moralizing. "I don't tell anyone they have to do this or
that. I never said, 'You better have your Louis Vuittons on
or something's going happen to you.' I just said, 'This is
what I want.' Same with Jesus."
