Lyrics for "The Rapping of the Christ":
Dear sistas and brothas, come and take my advice
Yo! Listen to the Rapping of the Christ
J to the Jizzo, C to the Chizzo
My name is Jesus Christ, so let's get bizzo
Humankind's been wicked since history begins
That's why Homie had to die for yo' sins.
Who'd you think was gonna make the sacrifice:
Eminem, 50 Cent, or Vanilla Ice?
As you will see, I say to thee
Jam Master Jesus is your M.C.
My coming was foretold in Isaiah 53
History is the game, now the playa comes down to thee
Mary Mary your little man thanks you
Very so very highly he ranks you
Owing to your Immaculate Conception
I lived in purity from birth to resurrection
--In a mangy manger, surrounded by danger
Thank you Three Kings, beneficent strangers
Mama and Joseph took me straight outta Bethlehem
Flying into Egypt, away from all the mayhem
Where can the Son of Man lay his weary head on Earth?
The devil himself tried to corrupt me,
And the bigwigs too, pretending to love me
"Yo yo Jesus! Come on and please us!
Sell out to the Pharisees and the skeezes!"
But I came to throw prostitution out the do'
Mary Magdalene yo, --she wasn't a ho no mo
"Savior of Israel, promised Messiah
You believe in him, he'll take you high-er")
I healed the blind and dealt with the hazardous
And went beyond that--yo, I raised Lazarus
For telling the truth in Nazareth, I was labeled blasphemous
By the hypocrites and liars, who were truly scandalous
Some wouldn't believe, even those who'd see me
Walking on the sea, in Galilee
Me and my eleven favorite disciples
Went through some pains which were not delightful
Judas oh Judas why'd you put me through this
Betraying yo' friends, that is the rudest.
Abused by Caiaphas, Pilate, and Herod
Just what were all those bureaucrats scared of?
I was taken by the Romans and crucified
The sins of the world nailed me, and then I died
The nails, the scourging, the cross were all deranged
They gave me insane pain in my e-ve-ry mem-brane
Bodily life ceased in my incarnation
On the Cross at the twelfth station
My heavenly Father thought that attack was wack
So He reached down from Heaven and brought little Jesus back
"He came from the Virgin Mary's womb
And then he busted a move right out of da tomb")
Jesus Christ is presently rapping
Because he rose up from his funeral wrapping
I am meek and tender but I ain't no wimp
Been hit with a few nails but I ain't walk with a limp
Who let your God out? to infinity?
Yet another member of the Holy Trinity
Ascended up to my Father in such bliss
I said, Yo Satan: you can't touch this
Bearing my cross, they say I was stoic
But a real man has to be heroic
I came to save both Greeks and Hebrews;
Black and white, men and women, for all of them I paid the dues
The Gentiles and Jews, yo baby, you just can't lose
This is the day the Lord has made, so choose
I came to bring salvation, love and joy
So you can think of me as your heavenly homeboy
I love you all so much with a passion
To save you all, I took affirmative action
I lost myself for you, you can lose yourself in Me
We can find each other there and happy be
Your ark is carried homeward on the flood
of my precious, my precious, --my precious blood
Now don't obsess about power, sex or bling-bling
Just wait for when I come back, --the Return of the King
Faith, hope and love are all you really need
Don't succumb to lust, pride, murder or greed
We're all moving up from death to life.
I believe I can rise up to the sky
John Mark Matthew and Luke were more than talkers
They knew that I am the real "sky walker"
It is your duty to go spread the Gospel
Even though all da people are hostile
Just like me, the Rabbi without a pause
Go spreading those gifts more than Santa Claus
Go make a joyful noise, I wanna hear it
Rap-ping with the Ho-ly Spi-rit
And go help the poor ease their weary heads
Cos I said that faith without works is dead.
"Go Jesus, Go Jesus, Go Jesus, Go Jesus")
Amen Amen, for believers, the story never ends
And at the Second Coming, I'll see you again, my friend
Peace out, Word, Word of God, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life,
yo that's right, follow the light, so be nice and sleep tight,
never never give up the fight
[3x, fade out]
