Pope Benedict XVI Rides Around Vatican City Bumpin’ Tupac

This is probably a miracle: AllHipHop.com reports that yesterday the Vatican released an official MySpace playlist—which is already kind of amazing—of its twelve favorite tracks, and in addition to Mozart’s Don Giovanni and a recording of “Advocata Nostra” that features current Pope Benedict XVI’s voice, they picked Tupac’s “Changes” and Fleet Foxes’ “He Doesn’t Know Why.”

Weirdly, no Jonas Brothers tracks are featured on the playlist, and Beyonce’s awesome “Halo,” despite being nominated for Record of the Year at the Grammys, is also missing. I wonder why they went with “Changes” instead of one of Pac’s more overtly religious songs, like “Haily Mary” or “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.” Still, it’s pretty cool. Do they play these songs, like, during Sunday mass?
