Shai Linne & Fellow Artists Ask: Should Rappers Serve Churches?

This discussion from a bunch of gifted Lampmode artists like Shai Linne (a fellow Capitol Hill Baptist Church intern!) and Stephen the Levite about the state of Christian rap is quite interesting and entertaining.  Stephen the Levite, the dude with a wild beard, has some thought-provoking comments in several places.  Shai Linne shows his pastoral heart and theological bent.  At around the 16-minute mark, Json thinks out loud about how to handle jealousy, specifically of gospel rappers like Lecrae (whose star has risen like crazy in the last year or two–see his classic, window-shattering “Jesus Muzik”).  A great discussion ensues–an unusually honest one–about how to handle jealousy, kill sin, and be glad for others who prosper.

In general, this was a very encouraging conversation.  It explodes the idea that Christian rappers don’t care about doctrine and personal, Christocentric spirituality.  I’m thankful for these brothers and their work.
