The “Beyond the Grave” by Stephen King highlights the fact that all of us need to consider the choices we make while we are alive before we die and face judgment. Young people need to know that the choices they make affect not only their lives but also the lives of everyone around them.

I can remember being extremely young and seeing the music video for “Jesus Muzik” with Lecrae and Trip Lee in like 2006. I was immediately in awe with the cars, scenes, but most importantly the clothes. With baggy tees and snapbacks that really defined that whole era, it was clear that the sub-genre had something to say when it came to their outfit choice. Even today, fashion pioneers in the space such as Parris Chariz, Jay-Way, and Tommy Royale repeatedly turn heads whenever they have a new post on IG or Twitter.
