Think about the times back in the 80s and 90s when you and your friends prayed for the future. Whelp, that was us. Love you, OG. https://t.co/wjbqZ4yJvB

MTV hooked up with Kirk Franklin for a short documentary detailing his story of bridging Hip Hop with Gospel music. The documentary also dives into the criticism Franklin faced from Christians about his relationship with Kanye West. It is a great piece that reflects on Kirk Franklin as the man and not just the musician.

BJ Thompson has been running with the 1-1-6 Clique from the beginning, and is known to drop nuggets on Twitter. In this tweet, he delivers a powerful word, as he speaks to the Church. We need to diversify to unify, as so many in the Church have been hurt by others in the Church. Let us all pray for reconciliation and healing.
The American church would be wise to learn from the GOP. Diversify your power structure or die a painful public death.

Mainstream hip hop artist Big K.R.I.T., who collaborated with Lecrae’s “Mayday“, is set to appear on BET’s Sunday morning gospel show Lift Every Voice. I am curious to see how K.R.I.T.’s faith may have grown, although he is still very much a mainstream artist. CHH isn’t just about edifying one another but it is about reaching out to the lost.
