1. MC Hammer

MC Hammer turned in his baggy, “U Can’t Touch This”  pants for the Lord. He started a religious TBN show called “M.C. Hammer and Friends,” and became an ordained minster in the late 90s.

2. Mase

Mase left the rap game at the height of his career to answer God’s calling on his life. After a few years behind the pulit, he decided to try his hand a rapping again in 2004 with the hit single “Welcome Back.” Today, he’s back in the church and hopefully he’s made his mind up this time.
