The Cross Movement’s UnReleased Video For Cypha Time from Heaven’s Mentality
This was The Cross Movement’s first music video which was never released until now (what better time than on the day of their 20th year anniversary). “Cypha Time” appeared on the group’s debut album, Heaven’s Mentality, which released on April 28th, 1997. Filmed and edited by Alex B. Wright in Philadelphia, PA.
For those of you who are new to Christian Hip Hop, The Cross Movement was the for-runners to much of what is modern-day Christian Hip Hop. Lecrae, Da’ T.R.U.T.H., Flame, Trip Lee and many others got their first national exposure thru their affiliation with the group. They were nominated for Grammy’s, Stellar and Dove Awards. But more importantly, they were some of the first artists who to really teach theology thru their music.
Many of the members, most notably The Ambassador, Phanatik, The Tonic, T.R.U.-Life and Enoch would make significant contributions to the genre as solo artists as well.
They were presented with The Lifetime Achievement Award last year at Legacy Conference in Chicago.
