We all have issues to deal with everyday in this broken world. And while earthly solutions may temporarily fix our problems, they inevitably resurface. Thats because our issues and needs, ultimately, stem from separation from God. What we need is a hero to invade this world and make it right. Trip Lees new single, The Invasion (Hero), points to the truth that Jesus already invaded human history. He already saved the day by filling the gap between God and Man at the cross and in his resurrection. And He is returning to make all things right. In the end, Jesus is the only hero who can truly save the day!
Why is it that human beings have a tendency to want to classify things? Does it make it easier for us to digest something if we can put it in a box with similar products? This seems to happen in music a lot, especially in hip hop, since it has been fractured into so many sub-genres. Sometimes I think it's the easy way out to listen to a couple of songs and throw an artist under some label. In fact, as I listened to Heath McNease's 'The Gun Show', I was tempted to do just that.

Mixtape's have been around since the late 70's, and many artists have found exposure and even gotten recording contracts from being featured on a mixtape. The mixtape in secular hip hop has been a proven outlet to promote your music in a cost effective way. Christian Hip Hop has been tapped into the mixtape game for several years now, however most are utilized to raise funds. With that said, I want to explore another function that Christian artists can use mixtape's for, namely, evangelism. Mixtape's can serve a similar purpose as like chick tracts. They have a message and can be handed out like tracts, anywhere to anyone.
