My First Experience with Christian Hip Hop feat. Dre Murray


As part of Sketch the Journalist’s “CHH 101″ series of posts for about the history of the gospel rap movement, he’ll be sharing video interviews he’s conducted with some of the genre’s top names about their first experience with Christian hip hop.

In this outing, you’ll hear the story about how a Grapetree Records rapper inspired and frustrated Dre Murray, how EPMD inspired his recent/future fashion choices, and the controversy over his “Pharaoh” music video.
