The third single from my "A Loss For Words" project coming out late September. "Let GOD Down" tells the story about my transition from Secular music to Christian based music. I used to be a huge Hip-Hop fan ranging from artists like Jay-Z, Eminem, Kanye West, Tupac, Notorious B.I.G etc. but one person in particular that was my all time favorite was Nas. From my first listen I always thought that Nas was one of the most skilled & creative lyricist around. I bought every album he had & memorized each & every lyric from beginning to end. At the time I would pride myself on being a "Die hard fan" or "Hip-Hop Head" but as I matured in Christ & my belief in GOD, I began to realize that my harmless "Love" for Hip-Hop was far more than that. When people asked me about religion, I told them I was a christian, but if you asked me about Jesus I could barley tell you anything about his life other than the reasons why we celebrated Easter & Christmas. The crazy thing was that in my lack of knowledge for Jesus, I could tell you any & everything there was to know about Nas. Instead of being able to quote one bible verse from memory, I could quote any Rap lyric as if I wrote it myself. I knew more about the History of a record label than I knew about the bible.... But yet I still considered myself a "Christian". How could I call myself a Christian when the only music I listened to was not just blatantly against GOD, but promoted a lifestyle glorifying things of this world. How could I call myself a Christian when I knew more about the music industry than the Bible? How could I call myself a Christian when I followed the trends of a Rapper instead of following Christ? It took me 22 years to realize how I "Let GOD Down" by my actions in actively listening to words that were obviously against him. We live in a fallen world that is influenced by Satan & music is only one of the many tools he uses to lead us astray unto his ways. There's a specific reason why their are over 200 scriptures dealing with Music & Songs in the bible. "Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. "(Colossians 3:16 NIV)
So I took a stand & cut out all the Worldly in my life. I opened my eyes up to the truth behind most of the music today & decided to stare into GODs glory instead of the allure of the music industry. I'm now a changed man, & instead of focusing on how I "Let GOD Down"... I now focus on making him proud. Thank you for listening. Hope you enjoy.
From my upcoming project "A Loss For Words"
"A Loss For Words"- A faith filled artistic approach on taking music that was created for "The World" & turning it into music that is created to glorify the creator.... STAY TUNED!!!
