On Friday night in Royal Brougham Pavilion, Portland-based rappers Jelani "G-Natural" Greenidge and Jaamar "J-MAC" McKelvey, rapping about breakfast cereal, received enthusiastic applause from 150 attendees.

As hip-hop crew "The Iccsters," they performed during the fifth annual Night of Beats, including the song "Cereal," which features rhymes about rap skills and a relationship with Christ using cereal metaphors:

"The love of God compels me to move / and kind of like Kix, he's kid-tested and mother-approved. / So strong, you don't need to spike it / and makes Life so good even Mikey likes it."

During their set, Greenidge said that some people still think that being a "Christian rapper" is a contradiction, almost like being a "Christian porn producer."

An article about Christian Hip Hop in the Washington Times. 

Good luck trying to tell 30-year-old Emanuel Lambert Jr., known to his listeners as Da' T.R.U.T.H. , that hip-hop is dead — that record sales within the music genre are slumping and its reputation is sagging because of its perceived penchant for bling, breasts and blow.

Mr. Lambert still believes in the power of hip-hop culture and still believes in its ability to uplift. He has faith — quite literally.

For the past six years, Mr. Lambert — known to his listeners as Da' T.R.U.T.H. — has made a living writing, recording and performing rap songs that riff on God and the Scriptures, not gats and spinners. The Grammy-nominated emcee is one of a growing number of Christian artists who have chosen to express themselves through hip-hop music and dance.

The people pushing so-called "holy hip-hop" are diverse. They're white, black, older, younger, well-to-do and strapped for cash. Most, but not all, are born-again.

The Arizona Republic interviewed Sinbad and take a look at this Q&A:

Q: What would fans be surprised to find on your iPod?
A: I've got three of them, and it runs the gamut. There's always some funk, some jazz fusion, some jazz-funk, some rockers that can really throw down. There's a lot of hip-hop Christian rap on there, too. I don't know if that would surprise people. What would surprise people?
