I like to listen to hip-hop. Okay, surprise, surprise. But itâ€™s true. What can I say? I like the beat.However, I am often not listening to hip-hop because frankly so much of it is too foul to tolerate (see Philippians 4:8).
I am happy to find that this is not the case with â€œThe Procussionsâ€ latest single â€œThe Storm,â€ which is iTunesâ€™ free download of the week. Go download the song. If you are any kind of hip-hop fan at all, youâ€™ll really like this one.
Here are some of the lyrics from the single â€œThe Stormâ€:
Yo I was born in a violent storm
In an endless fight between right and wrong
I write songs like letters from war
Stuff a message in a bottle and I send it to shore
Encouragement for the men and women who lost steam
Rebel music for my people whoâ€™ve been swimming upstream
Some things are not what they seem
What you thought was a peasant might just be the King . . .
Yo I was not made just so I could decay
These songs arenâ€™t played just so we could get paid
I walk in the way in the truth til the light works through me
I ainâ€™t afraid to say the word â€˜beautyâ€™
I ainâ€™t ashamed to be odd
I know the path is hard, but somehow Iâ€™m getting closer to God
Knowing by His scars I am healed,
Healed in the storm until the morning star is revealed
I really donâ€™t know much else about this group, but this single is really good.
