Story



We've all experienced it before. One of our favorite emcees or groups is about to drop a new album. We get hyped about it as we think about the first album they released, which came out two years ago, but is still in heavy rotation on our iPod. Their first project had such an impact on us that we remember exactly where we were when we first listened to it. We've loved the songs they've recently featured on and now the moment is here. The new one is ready to drop. We can't wait to hear them spit over new beats and, in new ways, recapture the feeling we had when we first heard them. We didn't even listen to any of the previews that already came out because we want to hear the project as a whole for the very first time. It's Monday and we know that it will be available for download at midnight. Like a kid on Christmas morning, when midnight strikes, we rush to iTunes to download it, turn off our phone, run out to the car so we can play it in the best sound system we have, crank up the volume and drive around while we listen, fully prepared to hit rewind when necessary. And then the unthinkable happens: the emcee switched up his style! What's going on? The beats sound different. They're a talented group, so it's not completely wack, but what happened? Add a comment

Recently some popular artists in the Christian Music scene made a decision to stop making music that appeals to the “christian market” in lieu of making music that appeals to the general market. In fact, the word that they used to describe what they do is “secular” music. I believe, as long as they as HUMAN BEINGS stay rooted in scripture, I think it is possible to make “secular” music for the glory of God and advancement of His kingdom. Add a comment

Have you seen those cheesy novelty tees? You know the one’s I’m talking about right? Shirts that aim to remake a store brand and Christianize it. Stuff like “OURAPOSTLE” or this one or maybe you’ve seen this one. I always cringe a little bit when I see stuff like this and its honestly what comes to mind when I think of a tee shirt that supposed to represent our faith. I think “where’s the originality? why does this shirt feel so cheap?” Fortunately not all shirts that represent our faith are the same. In the last few years we’ve seen the rise of some brands that have raised the standard of what a faith based brand could be like. Brands like NOTW and S & N, just to name a couple, have definitely elevated the standard in Christian apparel. But there is another name that has been introduced into the scene that has pushed the proverbial “bar” to another notch. Enter: B3AR FRUIT™. Add a comment

It’s no small feat to answer the question "Is Christian Hip Hop is wack?". Saying that Christian Hip Hop is wack is almost like a “yo mama” joke for people like myself who grew up on it. I’m personally invested in this genre through buying albums and concert tickets, as well as evangelizing through Christian Hip Hop. It’s challenging to be completely objective as well as comprehensive in answering, "Is Christian Hip Hop is wack?". I’m not trying to make a blanket assessment about a multi-faceted genre with thousands of emcees across the world, most of which I have never heard of. But lovingly, I’ll try to dissect the trends I noticed in Christian Hip Hop and make a conclusion. Add a comment

Does anybody remember mixtapes? No, I mean real mixtapes. I'm not talking about a bunch of songs thrown together that lack the quality to be called an album. Nor am I referring to a thematic compilation album, or a free collection of songs. I'm talking about mixtapes. Add a comment
