GLORY: 10 Rappers That Found Religion


Rev Run – Christianity

As a member of the groundbreaking Hip-Hop trio Run D.M.C, Run was instrumental in bringing rap to the mainstream in the ‘80s. But by the time the ‘90s rolled around Run was burnt out and looking for a new path. In 1993, he became a born again Christian. That same year he turned in his Adidas for a pair of Stacy Adams and became an ordained minister. He later founded Zoe Ministries and continues to spread the gospel (and star in reality shows) to this day.
