Christian Hip Hop legend, Ambassador had a chat with DJ Wade O on the issues of Christians being Christians in Hip-Hop. Ambassador’s was asked about Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar and the displayed affirmation by Christians in their circles. The rapper mentioned Chance as someone who professes himself as a Christian , makes worship songs, talks about the trinity seems to have an affection for Godly things but may be someone very undiscipled, because he also seems very comfortable with the things Christ calls away from. Ambassador talks about other things including the place of a local church and Christians living as commanded. Wade – O and Ambassador had very deep conversations here which are thought provoking.
Ambassador says at the end that people should please note that he is not taking shots or judging any one.
