Dawkins’s use of hip hop against ID

Have a listen to the following segment from Dawkins’s documentary against religion (“The Root of All Evil?”):
Who is the rapper that did this rendition of the Lord’s Prayer?
For your further edification, here is another bit of vintage Dawkins from that documentary:
The God of the Old Testament has got to be the most unpleasant character in all fiction. Jealous and proud of it, petty, vindictive, unjust, unforgiving, racist, an ethnic cleanser, urging His people on to acts of genocideÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Now, of course, the good Christians will be protesting. Everyone knows the Old Testament is deeply unpleasant. Jesus, they claim, undoes the damage, and makes it all right. Yes, there is no doubt that from a moral point of view, Jesus is a huge improvement, because Jesus, or whoever wrote His lines, was not content to derive His ethics from the Scriptures with which HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d been brought up. But then, it all goes wrong. The heart of New Testament theology, invented after JesusÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ death, is in PaulÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nasty, sado-masochistic doctrine of atonement for original sin. The idea is that God had Himself incarnated as a man, Jesus, in order that He should be hideously tortured and executed to redeem all our sins. Not just the original sin of Adam and Eve, future sins as well, whether we decide to commit them or not.
