My friend and brother Nathan and I have had a short twitter discussion on whether Christian hip-hop harms the Gospel.
This issue came up in reference to Mark Dever’s recent interview with Christian rappers Shai Linne and Voice. I actually interviewed Christian hip-hop Artist Sho Baraka. Then, I attended the the Don’t Waste Your Life tour concert and posted a review. This should give the readers an idea of where I stand.
The verdict? I do not think Christian hip-hop harms the Gospel. However, Nathan believes that the medium of hip-hop music contradicts and is inconsistent with the message of the Gospel.
It seems that any style of music has the ability to be inconsistent with and contradict the Gospel.
What do you think? Love to know your answer above and explanation in the comments!
P.S. Nathan is a good friend and neighbor. Please do not be insulting toward him.
