What Matters Most

Shai Linne:

“I firmly believe that one healthy church in the urban context will have a greater impact then 10 Christian rappers going platinum. Don’t get me wrong- I praise God for Christian MC’s. But the thing that keeps me up at night is not that there isn’t enough Christian rap on MTV and BET, but that many churches in the inner cities of America are dead or dying and that so many from our generation are pursuing Christian rap stardom that there won’t be anyone left to pastor these churches 15 to 20 years from now. As far as the role my music plays, I’ll leave that for others to decide. I’m just trying to be faithful with the gifts and passions the Lord has given me. I do try to write in a way that gives the music a better chance of outliving me.”
