Yes, it’s true–a theology professor from the Southern Baptist Convention has cut a rap cd. Life is strange, isn’t it?
This cd, “Keep Your Eyes on Forever,” was recorded in July 2004. I flew to Atlanta to record it with an established hip-hop producer who had worked in Outkast’s studio. Since then, I’ve rapped at various youth events, freestyled with some Chicago rappers, and spoken about the power of hip-hop at conferences.
Since this cd took the rap world by storm, my rap career has enjoyed a formal eight-year hiatus. That could, however, be changing in 2013. We’ll see what comes.
