Doug E. Fresh
Doug E. Fresh claimed to be hip-hop's first Scientologist back in 2009, when he revealed he had been adhering to the religion for eight years. He and a former girlfriend, a New York radio personality known as Miss Jones, were introduced to Scientology by Isaac Hayes. "I've learned how to look at things and not judge them but respect them and use it in a way that people understand that I respect them, show them love and respect their reality," Fresh told Essence magazine. He added, "Scientology is not a white religion. It is not just for white people. Scientology is not written with disrespect toward God. It doesn't worship something that is evil. It is scientific, mathematical, and spiritual. The black community has to check it out and see what's there. I'm not saying it's for everyone, but you have to take a look. You may be amazed at what you get."
