S: So how do you think people can get to know the Lord or what He wants more than just going to a church and hearing a pastor talk about it?
R: People need to understand what they’re reading in their Bibles. People need to know how to interpret. When it talks about Jonah being in the whale, in the belly of the beast, does it literally mean Jonah was in a beast? Was in the whale? Or does it mean that we go through times in our lives where we feel isolated and alone? Where we feel swallowed up by the hardships of life?

Read a post by Doug Van Pelt at HM Magazine here. Also read a post by Citizen Aim's record label and best friend over at Humble Beast Records by Odd Thomas.

GemStones (aka Gemini), for those not familiar, gained popularity in the music industry as he came up through the ranks on Lupe Fiasco's imprint label 1st and 15th Entertainment. GemStones was featured on a few songs on each of Lupe Fiasco's hit albums 'Food & Liquor', and 'The Cool'. GemStones utilized the platform that he and Lupe built, and released his single "We On" feat. Lupe Fiasco & Pooh Bear. The song garnered a huge buzz.
Prior to GemStones album releasing in 2009, he dropped everything to follow Christ. Check the mixtape out, and stay tuned for the interview!

A few months ago we posted a video from Rhymefest called “Prosperity” and asked you to let us know your thoughts about its content and message.
The general market MC has covered Christian themes and topics in his raps before, having co-authored Kanye West's "Jesus Walks" (which won a Grammy in 2005), so we thought we’d track him down and pursue a longer conversation about his faith, his motivation behind writing “Prosperity,” and his experience with Christian hip hop.
