Ben Sisario of the Boston Globe did a piece on the worlds of gospel and hip-hop coming together, citing Raphael Saadiq who now refers to his sound as ”gospeldelic.” Also interviewed was R&B-influenced gospel star Kirk Franklin who said, “I was raised on hip-hop culture. I was a break dancer back in the ’80s. I used to rap. When I gave my heart to Christ, I went to what was closest to me. If my music is flavored with hip-hop, it’s a natural relationship.”
