While 2016 was not a great year for many (at least according to Twitter), the same certainly cannot be said for Donald Glover. His new television series, Atlanta, on FX, received massive critical acclaim and had one of the biggest cable debuts to date. Additionally, there has been buzz for months about a new album under his stage [...]

Mark de Clive-Lowe’s Church is a Spiritual Journey

With his most recent release, Church, Mark de Clive-Lowe (@MdCL) raises the consciousness of his listeners to a higher plane. In the process, he is certain to have made quite a few new converts and reinforced his musical supremacy to the already indoctrinated. On the album’s opening track, The Mission, de Clive-Lowe lulls our ears into a hypnotic trance with an upbeat [...]

Sean C. Johnson Surrenders All, Defies the Status Quo

Sean C. Johnson Surrenders All, Defies the Status Quo

Christian Hip Hop is considered an oxymoron by many. The genre has come under fire from the church and the world alike as a half-hearted attempt to create a hybrid of the holy and the profane, the sacred and the secular.
