Drill music causing a scene again, but this time via Gospel drill and a confusing release from the rap group Hope Dealers. Racking well over 250,000+ views on Link Up TV, the artists who make up Hope Dealers have released a ‘confusing’ video, according to YouTube commentators, the usual fans of Link Up TV products.
Now normally we don’t pay too much mind to the comments, but we decided to have a scroll through to see what some people thought of the track.
Here are some comments below.
Do you think they’re justified?
While we are always supporting Christian Rappers, it does become a concern when a simple line in a song causes you to rewind and replay a few times to understand what a Christian seems to be saying about Christians.
Means puts it;
…these Chrisitans ain’t on nothing, these Chrisitans ain’t on piss…
…Trapmash, man will trap hard for the souls…
We are not sure what he meant by this term, maybe Christians are not really on winning souls and making an impact in community. Is his bar taken out of context? Could Means share some clarity on it to help us understand what he meant? Perhaps!
Some commentators went on about the lavish cars and materialistic display in the video, I don’t really have a concern with this.
On an article in the Evening Standard
Gospel drill acknowledges this but shows an alternative. It isn’t straightforward — for one thing the balaclavas that the musicians wear have been controversial.
Gençay says the young people wear them “because they are trying to get into university and don’t want anything to ruin their reputation. They also find wearing balaclavas in church funny.”
What do you think, should Christian rappers ‘flaunt‘ or ‘record‘ their garms in videos? Are the Hope Dealers on or off point?
