Rapzilla.com: 5 Moments Christian Hip-Hop Would Like to Pretend Never Happened

 
Hip-Hop music is a major force in today’s music and culture, and it is hard to imagine a time without it. However, in the late 80s and early 90s it was still in its infancy which caused many moments that can be perceived as “Not so Hip-Hop.” 

So what is worse than those moments? Answer – when Christian artists, many still popular today, tried to pull off this “new and fancy” style of music. 

These five Not So Christian Hip-Hop Moments should be enough for one article.

1. Michael W. Smith “Love Crusade” 
Who doesn’t know who M.W.S.? He is among the top Christian artists of all-time and has penned many of the industry’s greatest and most well known worship and contemporary songs.

25 years ago on his acclaimed Go West Young Man record, Smith tried his hand at rapping in the song “Love Crusade.”

Highlight: “So don't ever let your heart be swayed/ Draw the sword, slay the dragon/ Get on the bandwagon/ And be a fighter on the Love Crusade” 

Listen below: (Rap at 2:35) 





2. Steven Curtis Chapman “Got 2B Tru”

Again, Steven Curtis Chapman is no doubt a legend in Christian CCM. But sometimes legendary status has its limits. The song title was even stylized in old school hip-hop fashion “2b Tru.”

The year was 1992, Chapman released one of more well-known albums, The Great Adventure. What was even more awesome was that if you turned the casing over it had a song with a TobyMac feature. 

Yes, even back then TobyMac was popular, and at that time he was in deed perhaps the top and most known rapper in Christian hip-hop. But perhaps much to the surprise of S.C.C. fans, it was the singer who carried most of the rap lines himself.

Highlight: So ya hear me sayin' that Its gotta be true/ So now my home boy Toby is gonna talk to you, True”

Watch below: 



Here’s a funny video of Chapman explaining how the song came about.
