So I gave my sermons an urban kick

My rhymes are fly; my beats are sick

My crew is big and it keeps getting bigger

That's 'cuz Jesus Christ is my nigga.
—Pastor Jim Colerick[1]

Rappin' for Jesus[note 1] is a parody song and video of a suited, elderly white pastor named Jim Colerick and his wife, Mary SueWikipedia, rapping about how, among other things, "Jesus Christ is my nigga":

It was uploaded onto YouTube on February 5, 2013 by a "Brian Spinney". It is presented as, and commonly believed to be, a low-budget, genuinely cringeworthy music video from a pre-internet era, likely the 1990s. However, it is most likely to be a parody.[2]
