Artist KB Hopes to Reach Younger Generation With Christian Hip-Hop

By Movieguide® Contributor

Christian performer KB—Kevin Elijah Burgess—recently urged people to embrace rap and hip-hop as a way to spread a message of Christianity. 

Burgess shared that contemporary rap and hip-hop songs teach young people to “hate Jesus.”

“Let’s return to that era of seeing Christian hip-hop as a powerful way that we might bring revival,” the performer continued. “Think about what we can rejoice over — that the Gospel is being preached, churches are being strengthened and people are coming to Christ.”

He also had words for people who are not willing to accept those musical genres as a way to spread a message of faith. 

“The alternative is what your children are going to listen to — they are listening to,” he said. “And the alternative is teaching them to hate Jesus. That’s a little hyperbolic. But there’s truth to it.”

Burgess has also written a book, “Dangerous Jesus: Why the Only Thing More Risky than Getting Jesus Right Is Getting Jesus Wrong,” that explores the countercultural themes of Christ’s message. 

“From the moment He arrived on the scene, Jesus posed a threat to the unjust, a threat to the oppressors, and a threat to every semblance of authority wielded by the kingdom of darkness,” a portion of the book reads. “He invaded the world with love for the forgotten, hope for the hopeless, and freedom for the bound. His ideas were disruptive, subversive, and scandalous to the world around Him.”
