Christian Hip Hop

Several years ago, I had the pleasure of being introduced to the music of Grits. They're a southern Christian rap group, and I loved their sound.

Shortly thereafter, I began hearing about Lecrae, another Christian hip hop artist. At the time, I think he may have been new on the scene, but I again loved the music.

Thus, I definitely enjoyed this interview of Lecrae by Mark Driscoll. If you've ever wondered if there's any good Christian hip hop out there, look no further.

You should also check out Tre the Third. He's got some good tracks. His album isn't out until Spring 09, but you can hear his stuff on his MySpace -

I recently was made aware that Emmanuel Lamber aka Da TRUTH has been cheating on his wife with Tye Tribetts wife for the past year. Although I am not surprised I am very disaopointed. Even more now that We have been made aware at Epiphany Fellowship that his management new and did not step in. He will not lose his role in the church and will still be able to continue to make music through his label. Unlike his former Past William "Amabassador" Branch. How do you feel the church should address this?

For starters whatever leadership position he holds he needs to step down. Furthermore, he needs to take some time away from music and rebuild his relationship with his wife.

Has he even confessed to his sins? Wow...I am completely baffled by these Christian Men falling. That is why it is important to die to self daily and take up your cross daily.

What is worse is the same people they witness to are the ones who will use this and say Christianity is no different from the world. At least the world is not being hypocritical.

Please Christians I beg that we pray for our men today.

Yes, the best thing to do is to continue to interceed for all those involved. Definitely continue to keep their wives lifted, as well as those who have been impacted by their ministries. Let's apply the word of God according to Galatians6:1-"Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted."

The Truth is we go sinning all week, committing adulty, murder, fornication,telling lies, gossiping,ETC and run to the House of Adonai and say "We are delivered" and go back out and commit the same filth all over again. When will we stop with playing with Adonai's grace. There is no more remissions for sins. Let's open our eyes to grow. Stop drinking milk and grow to Meat.
