St. Louis-based rapper and Christian activist Thi’sl addresses racial tensions in his latest album, Heavy is the Head, in which he criticizes Christians for turning their backs on the Great Commission by failing to share the Gospel with those who live in their own backyards — inner city youth.

Ignoring the plight of those living in the nation’s inner cities only makes them more susceptible to being influenced by groups such as the Nation of Islam and New Black Panthers who claim that Christianity is the “white man’s religion,” Thi’sl said during an interview with The Christian Post.

“Everything in this world is either furthering the Gospel or trying to stop it,” he continued, expressing his frustration over the Church’s reaction to racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, and Staten Island, New York, in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases.

“I’ve seen a lot of Christians say, ‘Ah, you’re talking about [race issues], it’s furthering division,’ and I believe that’s foolish.”
