Since Christian hip hop's inception, the lack of quality has been commented on by Christians and non Christians alike. I have been involved in Christian hip hop for the last 10 years, and the complaints remain the same. Mark LaFay, one of my best friends, and manager to Christian bands Haste The Day, Gwen Stacy, etc., turned me onto Christian hip hop for the first time back in 2000. The first taste of Christian hip hop I got was John Reuben's song "Do Not" and Mars iLL's album 'Raw Material'. After listening to these samples and then searching out other releases in Christian hip hop, I soon found out that those were the exception and not the norm. The poor quality and blatant copying of popular secular hip hop has been a common topic over the years, but we can save it for another time. I will transition out of this intro on a good note though, and say that I definitely have seen great improvements sonically. In this article, I want to focus on the design and packaging of Christian hip hop products.
Rhema Soul is about to release an amazing album "Fingerprints" March 30th 2010, get to hear what they have to say about it. Sorry it's not longer Lecrae interrupted the interview when he saw G-Styles. We'll have a full interview coming soon.
