Is anybody else a fan of Christian rap?
Here are a few of my favorites:
Da T.R.U.T.H. presents 'Resurrection:' youtube.com/watch?v=FgzlAZqyUv8
Jesus is Alive by Shai Linne: youtube.com/watch?v=BauJLUTxxZo
I don't like rap and, to be honest, I would not allow any other rap in our home, but we love Shai Linne. I've actually had a correspondance going on with him for about a year and we've extended an invitation to him to come up to go to a ball game with us (he's a huge Phillies' fan and we just happen to be season ticket holders).
An interesting thing about Shai Linne is that he considers his music to be an outreach ministry of his church and has submitted himself and his music to his elders for that purpose.
He took about a year off just to study the Bible with them, but told me in an email that he's currently working on a concept album to use rap music to explain the attributes of God (many of his albums are "concept" albums, examining a single theme).
We're currently using several of his songs, such as "Triune Praise", "Atonement Q'n'A", "Gospel Music", "In Adam All Die", "Expository Preaching" and others to catechise our children. I've found that the theology in those songs is deeper than much that is coming out of most pulpits today.
