Hip-hop singer B Bun has been teaching a course called “Religion and Hip-Hop” at Rice University since 2011; the class has become so popular that it is going online to reach more students. 


Christian Today reports that the class is compares hip-hop music to religion. 


The course description asks, “What is religion? What is Hip-Hop? Are they the same thing? Do they overlap?

"Over six weeks we'll get a sense of how some individuals answer these questions, and you'll get the tools you need to explore these questions for yourselves."


B Bun’s birth name is Bernard Freeman. Freeman was part of the acclaimed hip-hop duo UGK (Underground Kingz) before the death of his music partner Pimp C (Chad Butler). 


B Bun said, "This course gave me the opportunity to let people see a side of Hip Hop that isn't always discussed. We've started a conversation that cannot end until people have a better understanding of who we are and what we do."


The online course begin March 24 and will be offered to Rice University students free of charge.
