(via: Relevant Magazine) Hip-hop review site DJBooth did an analysis of Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar’s respective perspectives on God. If you follow either or both you already know that they have a connection in their music to God.

But as the writer Miguelito points out, “Chance’s music is all worship, so full of joy and gratitude that he can’t help but sing gospel music at the Grammys. Kendrick is in a more thorny place, wrestling with Job-like questions about justice and his own worthiness.”

Lamar emailed the website congratulating them and saying he, “didn’t expect anyone to catch” his feelings so well. This is the email in its entirety and well worth a read.

Here’s an excerpt:

As a child, I always felt this Sermon had an emptiness about it. Kinda one sided, in what I felt in my heart. Fast forward. After being heavily in my studies these past few years, I’ve finally figured out why I left those services feeling spiritually unsatisfied as a child. I discovered more truth. But simple truth. Our God is a loving God. Yes. He’s a merciful God. Yes. But he’s even more so a God of DISCIPLE. OBEDIENCE. A JEALOUS God. And for every conscious choice of sin, will be corrected through his discipline. Whether physical or mental. Direct or indirect. Through your sufferings, or someone that’s close to [sic] ken. It will be corrected.

Is this conversation worthy content? Will it ever happen? ~Randi
