The logic was that by selling crack cocaine to his mother Woodbridge resident Christian Love would keep her off the streets and safe. "Streetwise, I've sold drugs since I was 9," said Love, who was raised in Washington, D.C. His mother, Melody Love, who now lives in Capitol Heights, Md., has been a crack addict since he was a child, Love said.

The story has a happy ending.

On March 2, Love, now a full-time Christian rapper, celebrated the release of his first album, "The Awakening." It was also his birthday and marked the first year his mother has been off drugs.

Music has provided the means for George Moss to communicate on a number of fronts. And with last week's release of his first solo CD, the Grand Rapids native has yet another outlet to display his passion for expressions of faith.

"It wasn't so much the music itself, why I got into it," Moss, 25, said from his Kentwood home. "It was an opportunity to grow and share my faith from that platform."

His new CD, "All or Nothing," is a collection of original Christian rap/hip-hop grooves -- produced with a host of local talent -- that already has generated a hit song.

The Harvard Divinity School and Harambee, an organization for students of African descent, presented "The Hip-Hop and Religion Forum" as its final event to celebrate Black History Month. Six panelists from Islamic and Christian backgrounds discussed the effect of hip-hop on youth culture and perspectives on hip-hop varied from critical to enthusiastically supportive.

Christian disc jockey DJ Lady Grace opened the panel with a rap rhyme from Christian rap artist Corey Red to demonstrate her theory that musicians today should not do both religious and secular songs, because the genres convey contradictory messages.
