Christon Gray says Christian Music Industry Is A Cult

0

The Saga Continues…. We have more and more people coming out being outward not wanting to be associated with Christian Hiphop only that this case is different. Christon Gray tweets and says,

Christon Gray is talented both singing and rapping, one would say he’s one of the most lyrical people in Chh, going back and fourth at an exceptional level. You would think Aaron Cole, Jon Keith. There are more but these are the ones that stick to be the greatest. So when he went all out on twitter, everybody was shocked because he detailed everything about the industry and how he felt about it.

“I have experienced mental, emotional, and Spiritual abuse from this Industry. A business that does not reflect the message of Christ and has brainwashed many for personal gain”, says Gray.

Christon Gray has a lot of credibility for bringing this up and the fact being he’s been on both sides, CCM, CHH & Gospel and as a whole he feels its “a Cult”. From his comments about the industry he’s saying he expected something that he never got, i.e Christians reflecting Christ in everything. He’s had a lot of mainstream success, promotional song from WWE, having key commercials, being on Sway in the morning. So he ain’t afraid of being Christian but doesn’t want to be associated with the industry.

Do you think he’s right to call the industry a cult?

While we have people making their way to Chh, think of Chance the rapper or Kanye West as the latest person, we also have some leaving. Its been happening for the last 10 years and the latest we have Pyrexx.

Joseph Mcsweeney aka PyRexx, a Houston-based Christian rapper an Ex-Drug Dealer who had served six-and-a-half years behind bars before he turned his life around, made it very clear on his Instagram story. Someone asked him if he`s still doing Christian Hiphop and the way he replied a lot of people were surprised. Some of the songs he put out recently wasn`t Chh oriented. Its a huge surprise especially the tone he put on his Instagram. This man was being covered on most websites and media. Before he got to Chh, he was in a rap group called ABN with Trae Tha Truth.

Some people think they dont get enough support, not being real e.t.c. What do you think would make someone leave Chh besides not making it big in Christian Hiphop?

Markus Riggs Releases New Single “Fear”

0

Markus Riggs aka “4 Minute Sermons.” Is a rap artist whose goal is to find truth in the midst of a world of facts and opinions.

“I know what I should be but also there is so much broken inside me. I have the facts but I’m still on a journey for the truth. There is a lot I am unsure of but I do know this. That life is painful, but even more do its worth it, and those two facts are what my music is all about.” says Markus.

The song in a vacuum represents where he`s currently battling Fear in a non-metaphorical light. The point in life we all get to where if someone asked us what we were going through we wouldn’t bother because the discussion and depth to the question would be endless. It’s the fight that never stops.

“I know my battle with Fear will never stop but I wanted to create an anthem I could turn to in the dark times. A chorus that gave me something realistic yet hopeful. Versus that told me everything wasn’t okay. Yet a song I can look at and see realistic hope in. Those thoughts lead me to bleed out my heart and soul into this song.” says Markus.

Kid Tris “APOKARADOKIA” Music Video, Does It Deserve The Controversy?

0

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding this video “APOKARADOKIA” by Kid Triss.

Now the first and foremost thing is that I’ve seen several people not like they don’t rock with this at all. But there are several people that do. And now there are some people that came to the same standard he had better music and everything like that. But when it came to the single venue video a lot of people are now rocking with it. But I checked out a lot of the comments and a lot of people who were commenting on the video definitely were rocking when this one seems like he’s getting a lot of support. On one side yet there’s a lot of people that don’t really rock with this. On the other side I even let my wife kind of check this video out because she doesn’t really mess with CHH like that.

So I like to get another point of view and she said that the beat was dope, which it is, the video was interesting, which it is. However can’t understand him and I think what a lot of times what’s happening is when we can’t stand someone we are very quick to shun them. And so I try not to really take that approach but honestly I’m really confused as to this kind of the point where we are happy and let you know WHATUPRG’s “West Side”. It was just a video. To me it was a song that was all over the place. I didn’t really vibe with it. However the project was dope. I have said that this is another one that I just I don’t rock with a lot of people don’t rock with. Because not only can we not understand them but it’s kind of like he’s not really saying much that he just really got in the studio and just made something kind of catchy somebody said his comments to Cashy 69. I said definitely to me this is kind of like a little punk but again we have a lot of people that actually rocking or rocking with this so therefore I don’t know where exactly we draw the line from actual music or things that actually have a point to where we just allow people to do what they want to and just leave them alone and let them run away. I’m all about artist creativity but I think sometimes there needs to be a line drawn between. Now this review of the video is not meant to bash, i am simply asking a question where we are within Christian hip hop. So I ask you all this because I value your opinions. Am I tripping or is this a little as far as being different?

What’s your take?

Dillon Chase “Hotel Sessions Season 2” Review

0

Dillon Chase brings to you season two of his “Hotel Sessions” series. I was bombed back to do a review and this time about this “Hotel sessions”. First and foremost shouts out to him for bringing the integrity of a mixtape back. What I mean is when I was growing up, younger in mix-tapes definitely were artists rapping over popular beats and the project generally was free. So that’s exactly what this is. He rapped over a bunch of his favorite beats and who hasn’t wanted to do that and put their own spin on it so big shout out to him. But this project is everything you wanted it to be; dope beats, dope lines, very consistent, crazy flow being able to switch it up. I really don’t have anything bad to say about this project outside of I wish it could have been longer. I was chatting with a couple of dude you know a lot of corner and different ones like that and a producer Applejax and we were talking about people’s projects being short, like seven songs too short and me coming from a fan’s perspective I was like “no you know 12 to 15”. But they explained to me their fans attention span is not that big anymore. We don’t have to sit on music like that because there’s so much out there and people do music so much. And as I got to thinking about it, especially listening to this project they were in fact correct. I did start to appreciate the fact that the project was short because you could listen to it two or three times in very quick succession. If I’m not mistaken the project was like 17 minutes long. So within a couple of hours you could have heard it four or five times which is something that I did in order to get this review out but regardless of that, the project is very good. He embodies true hip hop and he is one of the best lyricists in that died dailyCamp. Definitely has a little bit of competition when it comes to street or lovelindo and different things like that. But Dillon chase is on another whole level period!. And this project proves it!! I was very excited to listen to this project and be able to review it. Go and check out this project “Hotel sessions 2“. Just because it’s fried in that Spanish expanse he was just toying around with it definitely. He put some thought in it and actually put some effort in it and I believe you all should support it.
