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 about how one local church’s inner city ministry efforts introduced Flame to Christ-centered hip hop.
In this clip, Flame discusses:
- How he came into possession of his first Christian rap tape
- What he thought of that first song
- What other artists first caught his ear
Thanks to the power of the Internet you can hear The Fire Fighters’ song in the video below.
What do you think of this church’s outreach efforts using Christian hip hop? Would it work in your area? Which artist(s) would you suggest for such a project?
