I’ve Decided to Break My Silence On Such Artists like Mali Music, Lecrae, Trip Lee, Social Club and Many More!
The Last 3 years a Trend has began to engulf the industry where The word Genre has become cryptic and many artists have decided to convert to an already Saturated Group. Instead of Standing Out and Remaining in a Less Mainstream Coveted Genre of Music artists have dropped the Christian and began to just call it RAP or HIP HOP !
Some artists have said that they are trying to Free themselves from the Limitations a Christian Based Platform can have.
Now while I Remain a Huge Fan of all these artists They’re Legacy/Message has Tainted the Culture and NOT in a good way!
In The Early 2000’s Gospel Rap began to get Recognition as Many Artists made it known that theyre message was dedicated to Christ and they werent “ASHAMED” to speak that message.
Headed by the First Gospel Rap Artist Album to be Nominated for a Grammy …Flame but now after Countless Grammys , B.E.T. Awards and Secular Big Name Producer’s Recognition even a few reality shows later The Christian Agenda has Become Taboo!
The Message has become too OFFENSIVE to be Spoken Directly and now many Former Gospel Artists have Found Refuge in Hip Hop / Neo Soul/Inspirational so on and sonforth. As for Subliminal Christ-Like Punch Lines and metaphors artists have found more ways to smuggle a watererd down christian message in the ears of hip hop heads everywhere!
Funny thing is while slipping Christian Conversation in Pop Culture They’ve Tainted the Standard and Have almost Completely Camouflaged the Culture and True Bold Christian Music has almost completely become extinct!
Ive listened to Mali Music and Truthfully I can’t find too much difference in His Sound….
Outside of subtle words as before he’d say “Yahweh or Christ” to now More of a General “God” !
Thats what Bothers Me the most that His sound Remains the Same But The Glory being Given to God has become generalized phrases to leave the listener to their own undwrstanding or imagination. So since saying christ Stunts Your Popularity or Growth the message is no longer
Who God is….now we only hear about who we are…or should i say
Mali Is… but The Listener forgets who we were supposed to be talking about in the first place.
And thats God always!
I am MeechReal
Mali Music: Yahweh
Mali Music: Fight For You
