Is Christian Rap Really Effective in Spreading the Gospel?
Welcome to another inspiring episode of Da Fixx. On this episode we catch up with Christian Hip Hop Veteran Brinson, CEO of GodChaserz who will be receiving the Kingdom General Award for his contributions to the kingdom and the genre. We’re discussing the impact of Christian Rap and its effectiveness is evangelism. In our real talk segment, we discuss the importance of planning and strategizing when creating and reaching our goals. Thank you for tuning in and get ready to be inspired.
The Kingdom Choice Awards and the Art of Freestyling
We started off by discussing the upcoming Kingdom Choice Awards in Brooklyn. As judges in a music competition, we’re thrilled to see talented artists showcase their skills. We’re particularly excited about the bonus round where contestants can freestyle off the dome. We also announced that legendary artist Brinson will be joining us for a spiritual detox segment.
Our mission is to promote positive and relevant music that centers around Jesus Christ. We’re grateful for the support of our podcast family and look forward to welcoming you back to the show.
Brinson: A Journey of Faith and Music
Our guest, Brinson, shared his experiences in the music industry and his journey in pursuing his passion for music. He’s been rapping since the 90s and initially wanted to be a preacher. However, after rededicating his life to the Lord, he found his way back to music and launched his own label, GodChaserz.
Brinson’s independent grind and the doors that God has opened for him and his label are truly inspiring. He has distribution deals with Best Buy and Save the City Records, and he’s toured extensively. His goal is to love and disciple people through his music, and we’re all in awe of his accomplishments.
The Power of Christian Rap
We also discussed the criticism and objections towards Christian rap as a genre. We believe that just like other evangelistic tactics, Christian rap serves a purpose and can be a tool for spreading the message of God. We stressed the importance of unity within the church and the need to support Christian hip hop as a valid form of expression and evangelism.
The Importance of Planning
We shifted our conversation to the topic of planning, emphasizing its importance from a Christian perspective. We referenced Jeremiah 29:11 as evidence that God expects His people to plan. We also highlighted the benefits of planning, citing Proverbs 21:5 and Proverbs 16:3.
Planning allows for better results and adjustments in business and life. It’s crucial to manage one’s household like a business and take care of it as a first ministry. We encouraged listeners to trust in God’s plan and to mimic His planning in our lives.
The Shirley Strawberry Scandal
We touched on the recent scandal involving Shirley Strawberry, a relationship expert on the Steve Harvey show. We expressed our shock and sadness over the situation and extended our sympathy to all the people affected by this scandal. We reminded listeners to stay focused on turning negatives into positives and emphasized the importance of faith and kingdom advancement.
Upcoming Event in Cleveland
Finally, we promoted an upcoming event in Cleveland featuring a book signing and Q&A session with a guest named Dee-1. We encouraged listeners to attend the event and mentioned the possibility of Dee-1 performing a few songs if the crowd is enthusiastic.
Thank you for joining us on this journey. We hope you found this episode informative and engaging. We look forward to welcoming you back to our next episode.
