Al Harris, a veteran cornerback with the Green Bay Packers nicknamed "The Dirty One", is currently producing a Christian Rap album with childhood friend and convicted felon Kevin Soto.
“We’re going to change everything,” Harris said. “This is a movement. We’re saying, you can do all the right things and still be cool.”
“All these years, music kept coming up, kept bringing us together,” Harris said. “It always came back to music, no matter what we did, or where we went.” Harris and Soto had started talking about making a hip hop album in 1997, but things always seem to fall apart. Mostly because Soto kept getting into trouble.
"But one day he calls me and says, 'I am going to church,' and the conversation just evolved from there," Harris said.

As both an artist and listener I've noticed something fairly peculiar about Christians and their critiques of another artists music. I don't really see it among so-called "secular" audiences or any other music subset. What is "it" that is so different? Its this:
People feel like they can't just NOT LIKE the music.
Have you ever asked a Christian their opinion about another Christian artist? ESPECIALLY artists that use an urban music style? 8.5 times out of 10, if they don't like it they won't say "I don't like it." They have to give these deep, theological reasons as to why they don't like it. "Its not enough meat in it for me" or "they don't rep Jesus hard enough for me." What the heck does that even mean?!?!? Is there a Jesus quota to be Jesus'd enough? Do you have to quote Albert Mohler or something or have an RC Sproul sermon as the hook to be meaty enough? Do you have to have a song entitled "substitutionary atonement" to be deep enough to be considered Christian?
