Although some Christians might not listen to various forms of secular music, Christian artist Propaganda believes that all music is “God’s reflecting” and believes that listening for the “fingerprints of God” hidden within secular music can actually be an “act of worship.”
Propaganda, also known by his real name of Jason Petty, a popular hip-hop and spoken word artist from Los Angeles, appeared on a recent episode of the Dove Channel’s “Frankly Faraci” and was asked by host Matthew Faraci whether or not hip-hop is Christian music.
“Well, hip-hop is hip-hop. And you know, Jesus ain’t die for hip-hop,” the 37-year-old former school teacher answered. “He died for people. Like any other genre, somebody puts their personhood and their faith and their beliefs into whatever they do.”
“So country music isn’t Christian music. It’s country music. There are Christians that do it. Do you know what I am saying?” he continued. “And hip-hop itself, depending on who you ask and what day you ask them, is much more than a musical genre, it’s more of a cultural expression that came out of sociopolitical and economic state that the nation is in.”
Propaganda agreed that hip-hop can be Christian music, if the outlet is used for such a purpose.
