“Where I was raised Hip-Hop was the language that everybody around me spoke. So I grew up listening to that. I enjoyed it. I loved it. So that was the language I was taught to believe things in. As a believe the motivation for me is to counter that message and teach people about Jesus and how Jesus is better than those things that we were taught via the vehicle of Hip-Hop.” – Alex Faith
