Christian rapper’s raw lyrics about racism stir controversy
By Keith Lovely Jr., CNN
Atlanta (CNN) — Christian recording artists often shy away from controversial subjects in their music and cautiously avoid the use of harsh language, but Christian hip-hop artist Amisho “Sho Baraka” Lewis wanted to do just the opposite with his latest album.
The Atlanta-based 33-year-old’s latest album “Talented Xth” champions not just a picture of Christian salvation but also focuses on education, relationships and social change — all filtered through a biblical worldview.
He told CNN the goal of the album is to challenge listeners to “be exceptional for the benefit of others.”
The album’s title is based on a principle championed by activist, professor and sociologist W.E.B DuBois.
