Adding to the increase of Christian hip-hop music this year with the likes of new albums by Lacrae, Trip Lee, KB, and Propaganda is a new face named Anthony “The One” Moonie. His album released in 2012 breaks the mold of what many view Christian hip-hop to be.
Ironically, Moonie’s past life typifies everything mainstream hip-hop sells today. Although capitalizing on his former life may seem tempting, he instead raps about God’s mercy and grace in his life. Christ, according to Moonie, saved him from a life of drug dealing.
This doesn’t mean he now makes praise and pop tracks for God. Rather he tries to keep an aggressive vibe with a highly spiritual message centered on God. Check out his music video below.
