Christian Hip-Hop and the N-Word: a Distraction or Expression?
I know, I know. The second the infamous N-word is mentioned people start to yell - let's not do that. We're going to keep our voices at a tolerable level and instead have a discussion led by grace and backed by scripture.
Before we begin we need to lay down the foundation. The N-word is a word that has a horrendously violent, racist, and vulgar past. It was a word attributed to folks with Black skin and in this country, was originally used as a slur by White people towards Blacks. While the history is important - the purpose of this article is not to discuss who can and cannot say this word

YB SETS TONE FOR 2018 WITH AWE-INSPIRING NEW SINGLE "LOVE COST"
What happened to us? That is a question YB asks listeners in his latest single, "Love Cost." The talented lyricist targets the division of our society in his new track. After the success of previous single, "Rearview Mirror" which premiered in the popular music outlet EARMILK, he enters 2018 with intentions of keeping the momentum rolling.
"Mass shootings, when we get so ruthless? The little ones watching but we more concerned with the movement. We more concerned with the judging. We more concerned with the colors. We more concerned about being concerned that we ain't concerned about nothing." YB has a critical analysis of people in the world today. His opening verse is a fervent display of frustration. He continues his verbal onslaught with rhymes about self-indulgence and arrogance. "Too many I, am, me, not enough us and we. Divisions in the air, I can't breathe." The lyrics keep the listener engaged as the track digs deeper into its theme.
When asked about "Love Cost" YB said, "in our time of making music, it's easy for an artist to settle for the head nod. I want to give people quality music but never at the cost of truth." The Pine Bluff, Arkansas born artist hopes listeners will take heed to his message of loving your neighbor as yourself.
"Love Cost" will be featured on his forthcoming album God Still Has Soldiers 2 will be available on March 7th.
