The woman in the video below had a nonchalant encounter with Grammy-nominated rapper J. Cole while he was filming his documentary for his album 4 Your Eyes Only. What she shared with him was beyond inspiring.
J. Cole learned that the woman had lost two kids in tragic events, yet she was resilient and filled with hope. This caused him to question the reason for her motivation. I mean, what could possibly keep someone’s spirit so steadfast?

The rap industry has a reputation for promoting rappers that succumb to the demands of major labels even if it means rapping lyrics that they don’t believe in or simply don’t live out.

This was probably one of my favourite Christian Nation performances, Cypher style!! In the genesis of Hip Hop, cyphers were a big part of how the art form was performed. MCs and beat boxers would gather together in a circle and the MCs would take turns delivering rap verses to get the crowd going.
