Christian Hip Hop artist Originale is back with some serious heat!
The backstory or the inspiration behind “I’m Woke (Stay Woke remake)” was simply that I struggle in a lot of areas in my walk with God and instead of pretending like everything is perfect, I choose to expose it. Non-believers need to know that the only difference between us and them is that we have decided to accept and believe the fact that Christ died so that our sins to be forgiven, and that God is always with us…even when we mess up.
The other reason was that I am a die-hard hip-hop head. I take lyricism extremely serious, and as of late, rap has become so watered down that I didn’t want to do it anymore. That time has passed. I’m back at it, trusting God to guide my words, thoughts and actions…and telling the truth, hoping to encourage others with this wonderful gift He gave me.
