Linne was an atheist for most of his childhood and dates his conversion to 1999. Linne is Reformed in his soteriology (doctrine of salvation), and his 2008 album The Atonement included a song “Mission Accomplished”, which defended limited atonement.

The study took the lyrics of 94 artists and plugged 10,082 songs into an algorithm that Malmi created to detect assonance rhymes. Linne was preceded in the rankings only by Inspectah Deck of Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim, and Redrama.
