“Really?” I said, “Maybe I was wrong, was it fun?”
“Yeah,” she said, “The concert was awesome. At one point the rapper came down to the front row and yelled to me, ‘Jesus is _____?’ And I yelled “Butter!”
At that point I knew she hadn’t been to a rap concert. She had been to a Christian rap concert. And in the past that was a completely different experience. Don’t get me wrong.

He’s a solid rapper. He has a huge heart for Christ. His albums are great. And now there’s a new one called “Rehab.” You can take a listen to it on iTunes right here. You can hear three of the songs right here.
Instead of a traditional ad, Reach agreed to give out some great stuff to readers of Stuff Christians Like. CDs, vinyl record, t-shirts and hoodies are all up for grabs.
