Rarely do you hear of the rap and hip-hop musical genres combined with theology. However, BBC experienced an awesome merger of the two this past Saturday.
On Friday afternoon I received a call from Roddy Hannah (Dorm Dad for Ketcham Hall). He asked me if I’d be willing to introduce a Christian hip-hop artist named Fundamentals in concert after the Defender basketball games. I said I’d give it a try, and I’m glad I did.
Fundamentals (a.k.a. David Robinson) graduated from BBC, played for Defender Basketball, and lived in Roddy Hannah’s former dorm (Shaffer Hall). Saturday night he introduced BBC’s campus to some incredibly skillful rhymes that wove theology together with real life. Guest star Derek James also sang a few original songs and accompanied Fundamentals on guitar. The night was full of solid beats, provoking lyrics, and a convincing live performance. Hopefully BBC can host Fundamentals after his next CD release.
