Ik hâld fan muzyk

Sa no en dan gean ik werom en harkje nei albums en lieten dy't echt ferhuze my artistyk en geastlik doe't ik hearde se. One of those albums is De solus Christus Project by Shai Linne. It is ien fan myn favorite hip hop albums- perioade. De produksje is unyk (al net Onze), de ynhâld is leauwen, en Shai syn lyryske feardigens is op folsleine werjefte. Dit is ien fan dy albums dat makket rappers freegje harsels, "Wêrom bin ik noch rapping wer?”

Ik kin net heljen, it hiele rekôr yn dizze post, mar hjir is ien fan myn favorite fersen út it album. It is Shai syn fers út "Mic Check 1,2″:

Hy joech syn libben as in losjild, Ik bin hype en ik bin dancing
By reciting myn anthems fan Kristus, de Rjochtfeardige Laam dy't lights myn lantearne
Wa oars mar de Hear fan 'e folken
Kin Hype in heiden sûper te skriuwen sûnder sels ien wurd fan selsferhearliking?
Myn slop wurden- matich yndie te beskriuwen de ûnbispritsen Seed
Ornearre om te dwaan wûnderlike dieden
Op de leeftyd fan tolve, Hy hie de âlde hollen verbaasd op syn ynsichten
Obeyed Syn âlden, ek al Hy makke harren wyn pipen
In echte anomaly- en wa kin Peins de
Tsjinstfeint fjochtsjen de slange yn 'e woastenije mei fersen út Deuteronomium
Satan smiet alle obstacle op Him, mar koe net bedjipje kinne
De briljant stratagems fan it eskatologysk Adam
It eigene fan syn sêftmoedigens is te djip om te praten
En as jo tinke sêftmoedigens is swak krekt besykje wêzen meek foar in wike
Perfect minsklikheid- noch Bubbling mei godheid
Ferfoljen de ivige ferbûn binnen de Trinity
Excruciating lijen, ûneinige agony
Godlik abandonment foar de Inventor fan dregens
Gjin sûnde yn Syn Majesteit, Hy wie in ferfanger
De frucht fan syn leafde wie genôch om skep sûnde út 'e woartel
De tredde deis rose oerwinner- betsjut skiednis is
In toanielstik dat Gods rezjy om Jezus sjen glorieuze
Wy spuie hillich rede oer beats te draaien op de temperatuer
En gjin retreat al wy sykje it weromkommen fan 'e keizer!

Dat, myn freonen, is ien fan de grutste hip hop fersen ea skreaun. De rym schemes, de wurdskat, de dúdlikens en djipte fan 'e ynhâld, de flow- al fan it wie gek. Loovje God om mei help fan myn broer Shai. Wat binne guon fan y'alls favorite albums en fersen?

    To respond to your question Tripthis was the verse that compelled me check out Shai in the first place, off Flame’s Our World Redeemed, “2nd coming.Amazing.

    In the scriptures we find facts
    Pictures of divine acts
    Prophesied God provides wisdom the mind lacks
    At History’s climax
    More vivid than IMAX
    The sky cracks with
    Jesus on some, I’m back
    No, just try to visualize the most
    Glorious site ever to hit physical eyes
    Holy angels in Christ who gets minimalized
    in splendor arrives and all the dead in Him will arise
    Believers who are alive become a maturated Order
    And caught up in the clouds like evaporated water
    To Be captivated by the Master’s grace and aura
    Before He Activates the slaughter
    on the cats who hate the Torah
    The File wildinout and doubt and wouldn’t call on Him
    And now Crying out for the mountains to fall on ’em
    The dead come Out the grave at the holy judge they look
    They’re broken up and shook
    while He opens up the books
    All sins will be Weighed not ignored
    And law breakers slayed (slain) by the sword
    on the day of the Lord
    While we gaze and admire His
    Greatness, liars and fakes who hate Messiah expire in
    The fiery lake
    Made for Satan and his angels sent to deceive
    Multitudes who refuse to repent and believe
    The elect have no hell to fear
    Cause we’re related to the judge
    Like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

    Another verse that hit me, Lecrae’s verse onBeautiful Feetoff Rebel. It was amazing and really hit at the heart for me:

    Eric used to go to bible study as a kid
    He got older and started doing what the hood did
    A rival gang caught him slippin tried to take his life
    But the jammed up so them beat him nice
    He woke up in the hospital singing bible songs
    Praise God he had a place to learn the bible from
    But then he gets saved and wanna preach Christ they make him change his whole culture and way of life
    He gotta get him a bachelors wear a suit and tie
    Go to seminary by then all of his boys will die
    Jesus came to invade culture outta nazereth and used a couple fisherman who people saw as hazardous
    The feet are beautiful if only they’d go
    If ain’t nobody in hood preaching how will they know?
    Eric is better used taught trues in his context
    Somebody please plant a church in his projects.

    The last one I can think of off top is Tedashii’s verse from Between Two World’sBear with you” (which I think is my favorite song on the whole album) –

    Life done been crumby, since I been walkin a young’n
    Call me different or funny, wish I could change it like money
    Grew up off in the country, we’re lookin different n funny
    Stupid head or just ugly, no matter what it kept comin
    Askinmy momma where daddy, he aint here to protect me
    Teach me, raise me, or carry my load when it get heavy
    So I did it on my own, fightn carryin on
    It don’t matter what they told me dawg, I thought I was grown
    People tell me that I’m trippin, n i tell them they wrong
    All the while I’m actin out, blamin my daddy who gone
    Fast forward by 10, when God saved me from sin
    And He changed my heart from dark to light to show to all men
    And I got the conviction, call him up and stop trippin
    Thats when I found out he’s a Christian, who got saved in omission
    Thats when it goes past religion, and then it makes an incision
    Into your heart n then you start forgivin, man and start buildin!

    Cheers to good music and hail to the King!

    I’m constantly amazed by the show Shai and others like yourself put on through your lyrics. I figure most Hip Hop isn’t that difficult because you have the freedom to create bars that really don’t have to relate to your previous bar. Just saying random things that rhyme, pretty much. But you guys have to pick a subject and make it rhyme while still having a clear message. I couldn’t measure the difficulty of that. And that Shai verse you posted, in light of that difficulty, is truly amazing.
