An Exclusive Interview with KB
We were thrilled to have an exclusive interview with KB, a highly respected figure in the Christian hip-hop scene. We covered a range of topics, from his new music and book to his thoughts on marriage, mental health, and the state of Christian hip-hop.
KB’s Unique Sound and Diversity in Music
When asked about the inspiration behind his unique sound, KB explained that it’s a result of collaboration with his team and the diverse community around him. He emphasized the importance of surrounding oneself with good company, which strengthens morals, ethics, and passion. Living in diversity, being part of an Afro-Latino family, and a multiethnic, multinational, and multigenerational community, KB is committed to being an influence for Jesus Christ in the fight community. He draws inspiration from various genres of music, including salsa, worship, CCM, gospel, and trap.

The State of Christian Hip-Hop
Dice expressed concern about up-and-coming Christian rappers and their theology. KB agreed that it should be a concern because their music makes claims about who Jesus is and what he can do. He emphasized the importance of supporting artists who are genuine in their faith and not promoting false theology.
KB’s Debut Book: “Dangerous Jesus”
Our conversation also touched on KB’s debut book, “Dangerous Jesus: Why the Only Thing More Risky Than Getting Jesus Right Is Getting Jesus Wrong.” The book explores the positive and negative aspects of the word “dangerous” when it comes to Jesus.
