For the last few years, we’ve covered Chance the Rapper with bated breath. We’ve seen him toe the line between making impactful gospel-infused rap, and then follow up with sexual/drug ladened raps. It’s frustrating to watch, but at the same time a bit endearing in the sense that Chance is ALWAYS proclaiming his love for Christ, but like many of us, falls short.

However, Chance’s detractors are many. A lot of Christians say if he was truly saved his life would bear fruit. That’s a fair assessment but at the same time, he has shown fruit in the way he gives back to the community and helps others. Sometimes though, the vulgar that comes out on the other side outweighs the good.

Perhaps that’s why Chance is taking this time out to study the Word and grow closer to God. Or just maybe, the sabbatical has a little something to do with the below conversation with Eshon burgundy.

Whatever the end game is of this break by Chance the Rapper, keep him in prayer. Pray that he comes back renewed and closer to God. Pray that he is operating correctly in his calling and that he continues to use his platform for good. It’s only a matter of time before we see that No. 1 Chance gospel/Christian hip-hop album…one could dream right?

I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical. I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my bible. we all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word. I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it. So I’m off to read and learn because the next generation of Bennett is here and I need to be able to give my nephew Charlie Matthew the knowledge and tools to F*** YALL UP. Lol but seriously he’s the first boy of the next line and he needs his uncle to be educated. So dont bother me, ill be back soon enough, with five or more books from bible read. Oh yeah and cigarette free ????
