God Is In Da House


Posted November 6, 2006 - By Frank Meyer

A posse of Christians called HipHopEMass are trying to spread the word of God through rap music via a new album that puts their service to bumpin’ music.

New York Episcopal priest the Rev. Timothy Holder (a.k.a. Poppa T) started the group two years ago after “an armed hostage situation at his South Bronx church made him focus on the neighborhood's younger generations.”

"Don't get me wrong. We are not replacing or substituting the Bible,” says Holder. “We are bringing the story of the Bible to a younger generation and making it immediate and upfront. If you don't have an altar in the street, you have nothing."

The CD is called And the Word Was Hip Hop: HipHopEMass, and features songs like "I Am Hip Hop," "God Is In The House," and "One Mic, One Life, One Love."

"I used to think hip-hop was hateful," Holder added. "But hip-hip really is a culture. It is about social change and justice. We're here to promote the love and strength you find in hip hop, not the hate, misogyny and crime."

He’s right, you know. Leave the hate, misogyny and crime to the experts like Insane Clown Posse, Necro and Insane Poetry!
