are you ever gonna listen to new music? Right now I consider both biggie and 2pac so overrated. As of too Short, barely listened to any of his work. I loved gangsta rap when I was younger but now I find it too low budget and pseudo-intellectual (not all of it but still)
but they are celebrated during christian events and accepted by the christian communties. I didn't mean to bring up their origins. Truth be told, I'm not Christian, I don't celebrate any of these events so probably I don't know as much as I should about them.
It's a long story that involves some friction between protestants and catholics, but christians overall just can't be actively bothered by materialistic symbolism. Images of Santa Claus are nowhere to be found inside churches nonetheless.
