Who said Christian Hip Hop didn't have a platform? Bizzle is arguably one of the most lyrical hip-hop artists out do date. Not "Christian hip-hop" ..... Hip-Hop! Today, his video for "King" from the Crowns and Crosses album crossed over 1 million views.
“With all the self-proclaimed kings & gods we have in hip-hop today, pride is at an all- time high. That being said, there’s only one God and one King of kings, and He’s Jesus Christ. The rest of us are merely mortal men who will die (and won’t rise again) and will have to answer to that GOD or that King one day,” said Bizzle as he expounds upon the meaning of the song.
The track talks about the ignorance being promoted in Hip-Hop and takes a stand against fake gangsters, wannabe kings, and folks who directly harm the community. And Bizzle shows them all no mercy as he hits ‘em with heavy handed bars like, “Everybody wanna pop rugers/we love to brag about it like it’s not foolish/They hate us cuz we tryna put a stop to it/And we love to glorify murder till a cop do it”. He does it all while letting us know that in his eyes, the only real king is Jesus Christ.
“The money, power, fame and everything else that makes you feel like a god on earth will eventually leave your side when it’s time to lay in that box. Everybody is the hardest most gangsta person to walk the earth until tragedy reminds them exactly how vulnerable they really are. How can you be a god but you can drown, suffocate, or choke on a jelly bean and be out of here? That’s no god,” said Bizzle.
