Common quote

This quote from hip hop artist Common was in the latest issue of RELEVANTmagazinecommonpeace.jpg

“The message of God needs to be in hip-hop. So that people who are caught up into the world — selling dope, lack of self-esteem, sex or the worship of money — can hear that and start on that path. Jesus was sitting with the prostitutes and tax collectors, but He was with them to convert them. Part of the hip-hop fans are people than need to be converted.”

  1. It’s definitely about the content and not the style. It’d be interesting to see what Common is saying to happen, not in the KJ52 or Toby Mac way, but artists communicating truth while being authentic to their art.
