    Gods and Gangs feat Timmhotep & DJ R-Tistic

    Today's episode is a compilation of sorts. I asked Timmhotep and DJ R-Tistic (two past guests) two wild questions - which religion and which gang has had a bigger impact on hip hop.
    We also talk about rappers that have turned to religion.
    It's a fun one.
