CHRISTIAN HIP HOP & CHRISTIAN RAP(THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO & THE NEED FOR BOTH)

Posted on September 19, 2013 with 0 comments
THIS IS A TOPIC THAT I WOULD LIKE FEEDBACK ON. CHRISTIAN HIP HOP IS MORE LYRICALLY COMPLEX GENERALLY THOUGH IT IS STILL FOCUSING ON CHRIST(THIS STYLE OF MUSIC IS GENERALLY VIEWED AS UNDERGROUND & SOMETIMES MAY NOT RECEIVE AS MUCH RADIO PLAY). CHRISTIAN RAP, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS SIMPLIER IN LYRICAL STYLE & GENERALLY APPEALS TO THE MASSES EVEN BEYOND RAP LISTENERS(THIS STYLE OF MUSIC IS MORE COMMERCIALLY RADIO FRIENDLY & USUALLY WILL RECEIVE MORE RADIO PLAY THAN CHRISTIAN HIO HOP). BELOW I WILL POST TWO SONGS: ONE BEING CHRISTIAN HIP HOP("SNOWFLAKES") & THE OTHER BEING CHRISTIAN RAP("CANCER/MS"). LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE IN LYRICAL COMPLEXITY....THEN IF TIME PERMITS GO LISTEN TO BOTH TRACKS IN MY MUSIC SECTION OF THE SOUL-FULL PRODCUTIONS WEBSITE THEN COME BACK & COMMENT ON WHAT YOU THINK. GOD BLESS(DIOS TE BENDIGA)!!!!

SNOWFLAKES by J.O.T. aka GRANDE GATO aka JAMES O. TERRY jr


*NOTE….IMAGINE SIN AS SNOWFLAKES & YOUR SPIRITUAL STORMS IN LIFE AS SNOWSTORMS AS YOU JOURNEY ON THE PATH TO YOUR SALVATION JUST AS YOU JOURNEY ON A PATH TO GET TO A CERTAIN DESTINATION

First Verse:

AS I JOURNEY TO SUCCESS ON MY PATH TO BE BLESSED, WICKED SNOW FLURRY TRIES TO MAKE MY VISION BLURRY. I PACK HEAVY GEAR AS MY GOAL GETS NEAR, SNOWFLAKES TRY TO STICK IN HOPES I FALL BECAUSE THEY’RE SLICK….WHEN I BRUSH THEM OFF THEY OFTEN STEADY KEEP COMING, BUT I WALK WITH GOD TO THEIR SURPRISE MY FAITH IS STUNNING….THEY WANT TO FREEZE ME COLD FOR MY SOUL BUT I BEAT THEM, I MELT THEIR FEEBLE EFFORTS WHEN I SPARK SOME PRAISE & HEAT THEM. THEY RETALIATE BECAUSE EMY PRAISES IRRITATE, SO THEY TRY TO CAPTIVATE BY COMING AT A FAST RATE….ALLURING ARE THEIR METHODS, COOL SENSATIONS FILL THEIR EFFORTS BUT MY SPIRITUAL TREASURES DON’T INCLUDE CARNAL PLEASURES….IN A FIT OF FURY SNOWFLAKES TRY TO SWARM….THEIR COLD ATTEMPS FAIL THE HOLY SPIRIT KEEPS ME WARM….MY CUP IT RUNNETH OVER WITH WARM BLESSINGS BY THE STREAMS, SO I DARE NOT TAINT MY CUP WITH ANY BIT OF SNOW’s CREAMS….AVALANCHE ME WITH A COLD HEARTED STUNT, GOD TURNS IT ALL AROUND AND MELTS THE SNOW FROM THE GROUND….THEY CAN’T HINDER ME, THEY’RE NOT SOLID SO THEY BREAK….I SEE RIGHT THROUGH THE FRAME OF A BRITTLE SNOWFLAKE!!!!



CHORUS:

SIN SIN SIN….STORM STORM STORM
SIN SIN SIN….STORM STORM STORM
SIN STORM SIN STORMS SIN STORM SIN STORM
(CHORUS REPEATS TWICE)

Second Verse:

I MOVE FURTHER UP THE PATH BUT SNOWFLAKES HAVE TURNED SLICKER….CONFRONTED WITH A BLIZZARD BECAUSE THEIR NUMBER’s GOTTEN THICKER….TRICKY AS THEY ARE MY PATH’s A HAZARDOUS TRIP AND I KNOW THE CONSEQUENCES OF A FALL IF I SLIP….THEY TRY TO SLIP ME BUT SNOWFLAKES MEET DEFEAT BECAUSE I WALK WITH THE HOLY WORDS HEAT UNDER MY FEET. MY BALANCE IS KEPT DUE TO MY FIRM FOUNDATION WHILE THE FIERY WORD OF GOD MELTS A PATH TO DESTINATION….FRANTICALLY MANY SNOWFLAKES TRY TO STOP IT, BUT THEIR BLIZZARD CAN’T BEAT THE HOLY HEAT THEY RETREAT. AN OBSTACLE DOWN BUT I KNOW I’LL MEET MORE SO I KEEP THE WORD CLOSE FOR THE NEXT THING IN STORE….JUST AS I THOUGHT ANOTHER OBSTACLE I MEET, SNOWFLAKES BRING THEIR OTHER COUNTERPARTS KNOWN AS SLEET. SLICKER THAN THE FLAKES THESE CUBES ARE HARD TO MELT, SLEET’s DANGEROUS WHEN CROSSED FALL TO SLEET AND PAIN’s FELT….MY FATE LOOKS ICY BUT MY PATH I WON’t SURRENDER, I’LL FIGHT SLEET WITH THE WORD AND SUBDUE EACH COLD OFFENDER….SLEET SURGES DOWN AT ME BUT I ASCEND TO SLEET’s GAL, THE WORD IT PICKS ME UP AND AS YOU KNOW SLEET FALLS!!!!

CHORUS:

SIN SIN SIN….STORM STORM STORM
SIN SIN SIN….STORM STORM STORM
SIN STORM SIN STORMS SIN STORM SIN STORM
(CHORUS REPEATS TWICE)

Third Verse:

WALKING OVER FROZEN TUNDRA, I PRESS ON MY GOAL IN SIGHT….SNOWFLAKES WANT TO DARKEN UP MY LIGHT THEY’RE COLD AS NIGHT. THEY RAIN ON MY PARADE, IN HOPES TO WET AND LET ME SOAK….THEN FREEZE ME WITH COLD BURDENS, ALL IN HOPES MY STRIDE IS BROKE….EACH BURDENS WEIGHT ME DOWN, HANGING LIKE AN ICE SICKLE….BUT I HIT THEM WITH THE WORD, THEIR OBSTACLE’s ARE VERY FICKLE….IT TAKES THEIR SHATTERED EFFORTS, MAKING STEPPING STONES OF ALL….AND THE REST OF ALL THE MESS IS FORMED INTO A SNOWBALL….FIRMLY PACKED TIGHT, I THRUST HARD AMMUNITION….BEING THE FLAKES THEY ARE, I SHATTER ALL MY OPPOSITION….DEFEATED ONCE AGAIN, SNOWFLAKES GO BACK TO SCRATCH….COULDN’T STRIKE THEIR PLAN TO BURN ME BECAUSE SIN IS NO MATCH!!!!

CHORUS:

SIN SIN SIN….STORM STORM STORM
SIN SIN SIN….STORM STORM STORM
SIN STORM SIN STORMS SIN STORM SIN STORM
(CHORUS REPEATS TWICE)
