In January of 2008, gospel rapper Lavoisier released an explosive video on YouTube that quickly became the center of controversy among hip hop supporters and detractors alike. The fifteen minute video, entitled “Rap Terrorist Goes To School,” featured Lavoisier in a Brooklyn, NY school classroom, talking to junior high kids about the integrity of prominent rappers and the validity of their lyrics. Artists including T.I., Nas, and 50 Cent were quoted and openly discussed with sixth and seventh graders, who represent a large and overlooked fan base of impressionable young listeners. The video drew both praise and criticism, including responses from those within the Hip Hop industry.Add a comment

Todd Smith, aka Te'Luvv, doesn't fit the rapper mold. The only gold he wears is a wedding ring. He doesn't curse, drink or claim to have emerged from thug life. "The bottom line for me is that it's ministry," he said. "I decrease myself so God can look bigger and better."
Te'Luvv (pronounced Tay-Love) is a 28-year-old Christian rapper who recently moved to Memphis, and just released his fourth CD, "The World is Not Enough." Each track is a poetic sermon delivered through a rap beat.Add a comment
