Question: Why Does Gospel Rap Struggle For Acceptance?
The above question has opened up a can of worms on this secular site here. But if truth be told, when you look into the life of many gospel singers there's a certain level of fakeness and a certain amount of posturing in ALL music. Very interesting piece.
"And that’s the problem with most gospel rap, it’s talking at us. It’s preachy even if it’s not supposed to be. The person at church that does the talking that’s important is the preacher. He’s giving you lessons for daily living. But he’s not talking to you, he (or she) is talking at you. It’s the gig. Same problem with Tyler Perry movies. It’s all heavy-handed. There’s no nuance. Instead of making a movie, he’s making a message with a movie wrapped around it. Most folks would take a message out of things they do, even by accident anyway so no need to beat me over the head with it". Rest Here:
