MCís: God gave us a giftómade our lips so you can say that He made us to spit
B-boys, B-girls: Yeah we flip and spin but for the One who made a trip to put a flip on sin
Graf artist: We use our markers and spray to display the glory of the God that can save
Go DJís: Every touch of the plates is like a touch of His grace

Verse 1:
Iíve got a riddleówhat went from little to larger than you thought
Adults and youth both support itóit started in New York
Mostly Black and Hispanic, but now in Iraq and Iran itís
In Japan in fact it inhabits the planet
Man this thing has expandedówent from wild entertainment
To a global culture that molds ya with a style and a language
Now this thing is no stranger itís mainstream, itís the disc jock
The rapper, graffiti artist, the breakeróitís Hip-Hop!
Yesóthe leading cause of why popular music flip flopped
Odd but itís true itís now toppiní the charts along with rock
Itís properly known as a street phenomenon
Local to global those who peep the economics find
If youíre looking for a treasure hip hop is the right soil
It was underground but now itís found like when you strike oil
But canít boast in it, like itís the ultimate
Ultimately nothiní is the ultimate till God gets hold of it


Verse 2:
Note the power of the cultureóit seems to get obeyed
Itís ghettoĖmade and itís able to push its ghetto ways
It used to be on the low just like get-a-way
Now instead itís on the cutting edge like a set of blades
Every place has been set ablaze; every race has embraced
I no longer get amazed when their getting braids
Better get a hold of this golden goose
Itíll get hold of you and expose you to some things that will oppose the truth
Itíll have you thinking you fly
Cause of the things that you buy
But when you die, youíll obtain them new eyes
And see for all the hoopla you got you traded the truth
Like Esau who had a birthright he traded for soup
Iím no hater itís true
I know from you God can get a thanks
So you think that youíre connected like Harvard and brains
But Godís on to the game
He wants more than a song with His name
A long studded chainóa picture of His Son in a frame


Verse 3:
You know Iím theocraticóthatís an advocate of His rule
EmphaticóĎcause Iím a addict by habit Iím in His school
To learn so I can discern what to burn and whatís approved
To be fit and equipped in case God picks up this tool
ĎCause my whole thesis is:
Hip-Hop with no Jesus is like a Roscoeís with no chicken or waffles neither
But now a Hip-Hop that knows Jesus
Has a shot to save a lot from the place thatís blaziní hot with no breezes
When hip-hop bows since Hip-Hop vows
To use every hip-hop style for the hip-hop crowd
We can see world missions Ďcause to Hip-Hop the world listens
Listen, Iím not insistiní weíre makiní the world Christians
Iím just settiní the aim
Wantiní to see everything with breath reppiní and spreading His fame
Catch us blessiní His name cause for our debt He was hanged
His bloodís a token of love; letís start catchiní His train
