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, Beautiful Eulogy’s Odd Thomas, Courtland Urbano, and Braille share the stories of their introduction to Christian hip hop and explain why they were drawn to particular artists and albums.

Question:

What is your take on Braille’s breakdown of the overtly spiritual content of a lot of “underground” Christian hip hop?
