My First Experience with Christian Hip Hop feat. 007 of the 5th Ward Boyz
As part of Sketch the Journalist’s “CHH 101″ series of posts for WadeORadio.com 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 from a certified “OG” – 007 formerly of the 5th Ward Boyz – about how he first heard the gospel in hip hop.
In this clip, 007 discusses:
- The local Christian hip hop group that a friend put him on to
- The impact one of CHH’s pioneering groups had on him when he was still doing secular rap
From 007’s words here do you think the Christian hip hop group he came to know when he was in the mainstream market stood out for their beliefs and faith walk?
