Been thinking a lot recently about the rise of urban culture and Jesus culture lately. Christian hiphop has definitely taken a turn for the better in recent years in America thanks to such people as Lecrae and the 116 crew, Propaganda, MC Jin, Lampmode Records etc….more and more rappers are rising up to speak words of truth and light…
And now to reside currently in Seoul, and to be in contact with influential people within the hiphop circles HERE who are believers, it makes me really think – God is DEFINITELY going to use this for His glory, and we are going to be part of something beautiful and amazing, in due time!
Definitely is going to take some time and a lot of prayer…but I can feel it. So thankful for the genuine hearts around me who want to make a change and reach out:)
Wrote about him time and time again, but Andy Mineo is my all time favourite 116 member and it makes me so inspired to see him spit God-infused rhymes in a non-Christian cypher enviroment – one in a local New York environment doing a dope, chilled out rendition of ‘Cocky’ ; and another in the MTV Rapfix cypher battles seen HERE!
[My favourite verses from that cypher:
“and we got no shame like Ricky Ross with his shirt off” (ROFL)
“and rap has got a manhood problem i swear, they’re just a bunch of grown boys with facial hair”
“blaspheming God with the lungs he gave oxygen, He will not be mocked, don’t you remember Sodom man?” ]
UNASHAMED! and thats wassup. Much respect to have that courage!
Called to be the light of the world; yet we can’t do that if we aren’t present in darkness…
“I’ll introduce you to Supplier, cause He don’t want your deeds boy He wants your desires
It’s hard to spit fire when you hardly get inspired by the genre you’re inside of
Everybody wanna try to be something they not, well guess what do you
I’m still covered in His blood like SuWoo”
FIRE!! …..hahaha alright enjoy.
