5 New Age Artists With A God Complex

As hip-hop has surpassed rock as the most popular genre in the United States, rappers continue to take on larger than life personas. Legendary artists like Stronger rapper Kanye West and 4:44 wordsmith Jay-Z have championed the nicknames "Yeezus" and "J-Hova" which respectively allude to Jesus and Jehovah. These hip-hop fixtures aren't the only gatekeepers who have cult-like fans who worship. Trap God (Gucci Mane), The 6 God (Drake), Charlamagne Tha God and even U-God of Wu-Tang Clan has helped make waves around the world when the Clan's 2015 album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" was sold for $2 Million. As music enters a new era where hip-hop reigns supreme, I shed light on five of the new age rappers with the word God in their name who show the most potential to cultivate a divine following.
