No, not really.

But if you do find anyone, you have to incorporate Fitty Cent and "jigga-what" into your songs.

For your run off the mill rap, with a good flow and an Uplifting Message, try Naz or T-Bone.

For something more old school, End Time Warriors (AKA E.T.W.) is a good group.

For a more unique sound, Ill Harmonics is a very interesting Group. They are a Christian group, but they have a sound unique in both Christian and Secular circles.

And none of them make up words Wink like Shanizzal.

Oh, for the love of...

LAUGH, people. Please, don't take everything so seriously. And I gotta agree with Tibby here...I really don't want to know what you think Fitty has to do with the Mark of the Beast.

I would like to know what conection there is between 50 and the antichrist. But all that aside If you want a good christian rap T-Bone, KRS One, The Cross Movement and Gospel Gangstaz are the best.

Nas? Christian rap? Hmmmmm...... Roll Eyes

http://www.loglar.com/album.php?id=2913

I can't post any lyrics; it would take entirely too long to clean them up! But the link is for the lyrics to the songs off the 'God's Son' CD.... the one with "I Can" on it.  Roll Eyes

Yes, Nas, Christian. He is just a legit as DC Talk or SCC or POD. Welcome to my world. Christian music is a joke, and this is an example of why. Nas is on the same label as Michael Bolton and Petra (sony).

Based on what?  Huh

Christian music is a joke, and this is an example of why.

Again, what says his music is Christian or even that he is?

Nas is on the same label as Michael Bolton and Petra (sony).

 Huh Sorry, I dont' get what the label has to do with the Christianity aspect?

Quote
 Nas Godís Son
 
 
 
 
A tribute to the artistís departed mom, "Dance" esteems the Lord while slamming evolution. "I Can" affirms kids, telling them to "read more, learn more," avoid drugs and choose friends carefully. Elsewhere, isolated lines decry a loss of values and responsibility, both on an individual and a cultural level.

 
Sadly, any pro-social preaching is crippled by the rapperís amazing moral confusion. He boasts about having a constant flow of sexual partners ("The Cross," "P-ssy Killz") and a marathon session of oral sex ("Hey Nas"). Illegal drugs are considered good for the community on "Get Down"("The drugs kept the íhood from starving"). At least five tracks take an enchanted view of alcohol and marijuana. Seven feature violent threats or descriptions of gang warfare (including the murder of a doctor and a policeman), at times with the rapper admitting to being jacked up on pot or booze. As might be inferred from the discís title, Nas has a messiah complexóa seed planted by his mother ("Revolutionary Warfare"). He views Jesus as "just nice" and hardly necessary. "Heaven" states, "I bet you thereís a heaven for an atheist."  
 
Quote
Reprehensibly inconsistent and sure to grieve the heart of Godís true Son.

http://www.pluggedinonline.com/music/music/a0001257.cfm

Quote
He alludes to himself as a Christ figure on the egomaniacal "Nas Is Like" ("Nas is like Iron Mike, messiah type, before the Christ . . . I'm like ecstasy for ladies").

http://www.pluggedinonline.com/music/music/a0000760.cfm

Quote
"The Flyest" mentions driving under the influence and states, "[Iíve] been blessed with Allahís vision, strength and beauty."

Quote
A lyric on "Every Ghetto" states, "My songs come from the Father." The father of what? Nas thinks his tunes are heaven-sent, but John 8:44 reveals the true father of gangsta violence, pot smoking, foul language, illicit sex and warped spirituality. Donít let Stillmatic slice, dice, cube and make julienne fries out of your teenís value system.

The Label has EVERYTHING to do with it. The Label dictates who gets the money, who you assocate with, where you tour, etc, etc. The Music label is everything.

 Undecided

The question was:
"Sorry, I dont' get what the label has to do with the Christianity aspect?"

IOW, how does the label prove or disprove your statement that Nas is a Christian?  Huh

I'm trying to figure out why you called Nas a Christian artist?

Because he said he is, like Petra and AA and Newsboys and Piller. And his lyrics are no more or less glorifying to God then some of Petra's and AA's and Newsboys' and Piller's lyrics. I cannot look at the heart, and I don't know what his life is like, so I have to take his word on it.

There ya go! See? I didn't know if it was just something you guessed! But if you actually heard him say it.... You DID hear HIM say it, didn't you? Roll Eyes Cause I just haven't been able to find ANYTHING having to do with Nas and being Christian. Lips Sealed

And his lyrics are no more or less glorifying to God then some of Petra's and AA's and Newsboys' and Piller's lyrics.

Completely untrue! Excepting Petra who I'm not as familiar with... Did you even read the quotes I posted? I didn't think so.... Roll Eyes

I cannot look at the heart, and I don't know what his life is like, so I have to take his word on it.

ROFL! I never thought you could! But again, you did hear Nas say it, right? So being young, you must have a good enough memory to recall where and when YOU heard him say it, right?  Wink
