Rapper KRS-One has reportedly established his own religion - going so far as to write an accompanying bible.

Speaking about his newfound faith, the 44-year-old MC revealed that the title of his holy text is called The Gospel Of Hip-Hop: The First Instrument.

He told AllHipHop: "It explores the spirituality of hip-hop, the divinity of hip-hop. I'm suggesting that in 100 years' time, this book will be a new religion on the earth.

"Now you talk about controversy, there's some Christian ministries if you go online, look up some ministers they dissing (sic) right now. 'Who the hell does he think he is?'"

KRS-One added: "Well, I think I have the authority to approach God directly, I don't have to go through any religion [or] train of thought. I can approach God directly myself and so I wrote a book called The Gospel Of Hip-Hop to free from all this nonsense garbage right now.

"Respect [to] the Christianity, the Islam, the Judaism, but their time is up."
