This is Why We Pray

Quanda isn't the nicest person. Actually she has a nice limit. The limit is 1 day of niceness. So when she interviewed T-Bone awhile back, he caused her to reevaluate her ugly demeanor. She came to the conclusion the Lord doesn't make any mistakes. In order for balance in the world there is light and there is fire. T-Bone and Electra represent the light. Steups and I represent the fire. Always willing to be part of God's wonderful plan, I had to share a Christian rap with our readers. Because many of us have Jesus in our lives ...but many of us need to have him in our hearts.

I don't pretend to be a hip hop professional know it all. Mr. Q holds that title. He is the Matt Pinfield of Hip Hop. There is a plethora of unbelievable hip hop knowledge stored in his head. In spite of having limited rap knowledge , I still have an opinion. (Quanda is a Murs, El-P, Common and Lady Sovereign type of rap fan.)And I like T-Bone's flow and song. T-Bone was kind enough to answer my question regarding his song, ' This is Why I Pray.' (right-click to download directly)


















Why do a Christian rap song?
" It goes back to wanting to be positive. Often the youth listen to music that leans more towards the negative in this world. Rap is a power medium. It permeates throughout our society. It crosses racial, cultural, and social-economic lines. I thought why not use rap to share with the youth some of the words God has to share with them. I am from New York and a lot of cats have some rapping skills. Why not use my skill to send out a positive message to the youth? I am a big believer in community work. I want to be able to reach the youth. Many kids may not know their time tables but they can recite multiple rap songs word for word. They know those lyrics. It's time to feed our children positive knowledge. It's important to have a positive impact on their lives. So I wanted to share a message of love. We all have a small part in making society better."

Well that about sums in up for me. And I thank T-Bone for keeping it positive. In spite of certain powers *coughs VH-1 coughs using special effects to make him appear to have a wondering eye *coughs when he doesn't.

    Perhaps somebody here has some insight on this. Not sure if it has been talked about becuase I havent been here but I just saw the charm school pre show videos and I got two questions.

    Whats the back story on Hotties "mansion" I.E. who is she fucking or what has she done to get in that mansion.

    2 Bootz . I was originally going to ask who is this chick messing with to et into that mansion becuase she even said herself that she doesnt have that many clients. that on top of me recognizing that house from an episode of MTV cribs . I do know it was some rappers house I just can't remember who. And she obviously aint havign sex with who ever she was with in that house becuase she isnt in the presidential suite she has the smaller room. Whats the story behind them two commign up in the world so fast. I know somebody here would know.

  12. steups // 28/3/07 11:31 PM  

    Damnnnnnnnnnnn at Hutche, lmao.
    I honestly can't figure out how Hottie is so important to these execs.
    long before this show she was invited to all sorts of B-list parties and shit.

    The same with Bootz; for some reason i can't figure out...she's mega popular.

  13. steups // 28/3/07 11:32 PM  

    And shame on VH1 for always trying to clown the guys with their trick editing.
    That ain't right at all.
    At all!

  14. ~MEALE~ // 28/3/07 11:42 PM  

    Hutche, Bootz says on that video that
    it's her mothers house and she lives there with her mama and little brother.

    As far as Hottie goes I was wondering the same thing.

  15. Anonymous // 28/3/07 11:45 PM  

    Bootz lives with her parents, that is why they show her little brothers room. None of these girls are ballin off of Flavor of Love. Even for the winner of Charm School after you pay taxes on 50k its really not alot of money.

  16. steups // 28/3/07 11:47 PM  

    Are you sure the song isn't "This is why I pray"?

    And why Christians always steal people's songs? That ain't right.
    I like it though

  17. steups // 28/3/07 11:49 PM  

    I haven't seen the video yet...how huge is the house?

  18. steups // 29/3/07 12:02 AM  

    Do you believe in your words Danger Zone?

  19. ~MEALE~ // 29/3/07 12:06 AM  

    Steups, I sent the links for the videos to your mailbox.

  20. Danger Zone // 29/3/07 12:15 AM  

    What are you talking about Steups?

  21. SpeaKnTrutH // 29/3/07 12:17 AM  

    I thought that Bootz said that the extra room in the house was for her son. but I could be wrong. and when and where did they show Hottie's house i guess I missed that one.

  22. steups // 29/3/07 12:23 AM  

    Seems like you had an Epiphany...

    Thanks Meale

  23. Danger Zone // 29/3/07 12:25 AM  

    There are individuals who represent light.

    And there are individuals who represent fire.

    No?

  24. steups // 29/3/07 12:40 AM  

    no email was received Meale

  25. ~MEALE~ // 29/3/07 12:53 AM

    Yea,it's me! The REAL Royal*T, alias GeRon Turner. I had a dream about the blog last night so I figured I would drop by and show some love. I'd really like to stick around and find out who hates who these days, but I don't have the time or energy or interest it would take to do so.So on that note,let me end THIS note by saying Ciao,and I LOVE you guys!!!

    You had no dream...I sent you an email two days ago

  33. On pause for Onix *GiGi* (Gabrielle) // 29/3/07 1:52 PM  

    Hey everybody.

    Hutche: Bootz makes alot of money doing club hosting like Deelishis does. And someone said they thought it was her son's room, nah it's her brothers.

    To whomever said they missed Hotties house, it's the 4 video on vh1 for charm school.

    Rain seems to be doing to the wrose to me because her little apartment was sad, and they gone deduct from her deposit after they see them nails in that wall ;)

    I dont' really know what Hottie does but I do know that her weave/wig is worse than New Yorks. All that money and she can't get that to look natural like Tyra and Benonce(Beyonce)?

  34. Gabrielle // 29/3/07 1:53 PM  

    Rain seems to be doing the worse*

    thats what i meant to type

  35. Shawn // 29/3/07 2:10 PM  

    Ok back again. I need to write to VH1 for my own show.

    Anyone want to join me.

  36. steups // 29/3/07 2:16 PM

  47. hutche // 29/3/07 3:23 PM  

    Gabrielle Botz don't make that much money from hosting. not that fast , flavor of love 2 has only been out a year or so. And she obviously doesnt own the house seeing as how she don't have the bggest room n the house. I KNOW saw that house on crbs before but for the life of me I can not remember who's it was. She must be related n some form or fashion to some one who does own the house.

  48. steups // 29/3/07 4:13 PM  

    Thanks elle
