Defacing the Music: What Slips into the Grooves Once God Gets Removed

By Reggie Legend

Religion & spirituality, Poetry, Education & teaching, General non-fiction, Music & musicians | Paperback, eBook


If you’re a Christian who loves Hip-Hop, then this book is for you! The original intent of music was to bring glory and honor to the name of God as the Creator of all things. Yet, like all men born into this earth, music has been corrupted by the very thing that mankind was created to subdue: sin. When Nas rapped that Hip-Hop is dead, it was personal… and it hurt. Yet Hip-Hop died long before Nas eulogized it. It died the moment its words were birthed into the world without God at its center. Adding insult to injury, Hip-Hop’s memorial gets defaced every time lyrics and beats are created without the intent to praise God; produced by artists who are sold out for their own kingdom, name and fame instead of the LORD’s! But this book isn’t meant to be doom and gloom – there’s Good News! Like mankind, Hip-Hop needs to be reformed! Take a look at the image below: We’ve all played musical chairs. Every time the music breaks, a chair is removed from the circle; displacing one person as another takes the last coveted spot. In this image, God, the Chairman of Music, has lost His seat in what Psalm 22:3 calls “the praises of Israel” – a place He was meant to inhabit. There’s “treble” brewing in music when God gets removed. Even so, this book is not about removing godless Hip-Hop music altogether – it’s about the hope of Hip-Hop’s restoration. At the end of the day, it’s all about God being the foundation of music; the “bass” if you will… no “trouble.”
