The Christian Lil Wayne and Non-Illuminati Hip Hop
After working on my Rihanna re-writes, I stumbled upon a bunch of artists who were already doing what I wanted to do. Rewriting the lyrics of “hard” contemporary hip hop to something more positive…ie Black power and/or Christian. I’m late! Some of this stuff has been on YouTube for years. This is probably the stuff my brother has been DJing with all this time.
I’ve always been a big fan of hip hop, but can not stand the destructive lyrical content of most of what we hear on radio and tv. This playlist means I get down to Lil Wayne’s beats without commiserating. There are some Nigerian artists in there and Dancehall/Reggae even. Can I also say that these artists are fine!
Here is the video that blew my mind this morning while looking for Saturday cleaning music (link to playlist follows):
