Songs of Praise: Christian Rapper Sola Scriptura

-

In spite of our shortcomings, God blesses us daily with another chance to do it over, to get it right! That is why nowadays diverse genres, such as Hip Hop are finally being accepted in Christian music circles–because they can have quite an impact on those who have a love for the Hip Hop genre. It is a great tool in helping those who are new Christians, and particularly impactful for listeners who have not heard the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord. Ephesians 5:19

Christian Hip Hop music is often frowned upon because of its rhythm and considered to be heavily influenced by secular Hip Hop, critics say. Its fought a challenging fight since its early beginnings in 1985 and has defended itself against more traditional and accepted Gospel music.

Most christian rappers have a powerful testimony and passion for Jesus Christ. They work hard for their message to be heard loudly and clearly with the intent to help those who struggle with sin, past life, backsliding or just want to hear “the good news”. Christian rap provides an alternative to traditional gospel music that may appeal to young listeners as well.

Most Christian music artists inspire with their testimonies of having a loving God in their life. Through the series Songs of praise:Christian Rapper Sola Scriptura speaks of a merciful father in heaven who has carried him throughout his life. It’s quite a feeling that cannot be suppressed, to know that Jesus died for our sins and that we have a choice. To choose God and follow in the footsteps of Jesus, sometimes falling but getting up.

Christian rapper Sola Scriptura is a soldier of Christ. Born in Panama but raised in Brooklyn, NY he has always had a passion for Hip Hop. Before he decided to give his heart to Jesus he had recorded two rap albums and decided that if he no longer lived by those previous beliefs, he wouldn’t pursue a mainstream rap career with those albums. He also acknowledged the responsibility of being a Hip Hop artist and decided to continue to pursue his passion but in a more positive way that would please the Lord.

Presently, he works as a chaplain and has a ministry focused on helping those get to know Jesus, the awesome saviour that he had an encounter with once. An encounter that saved his life and redirected his music, to be songs of praise. He is currently working on his third Christian rap album titled “Please label me a Christian rapper” Vol. 1,  which he dedicates to those who are in doubt that Christian rap can surely lead to help believers become followers of Christ. By gaining a greater understanding of what God means to him, through his music.

Fun Factz- If your wondering, Sola Scriptura means “by scripture alone.”

He is proud of who he is because Christ has made sure of it. His lyrics reflect a soul that fights for Jesus everyday with all his might. With songs like “Forgive Me” he gives his own personal account of what it means to be a Christian facing sins that we continually struggle with. “Many Sins” another popular song on his new album, is the Christian version of rapper 50 cents hit “Many Men” which he recites bible scripture on and reflects on his life before and after being saved. His album is quite the “hidden gem” rapping over covers of your favorite artist’s music to spread the message that there is hope in Christ.

Fun Factz– If your wondering, Sola Scriptura means “by scripture alone” that is why this rising Christian rapper usually backs up most up his lyrics with scripture that demonstrate “rule of faith and practice.” Jesus once again wins and uses his greatest soldiers to stand up for him and testify of how great it is to know Jesus Christ as Lord.

Sola Scriptura’s favorite Christian rapper is Shai Linne who is also a very lyrical rapper and has a great fan base. Check him out!

His favorite scripture is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.
