Hip Hop Lover Exposes Hip Hop Lies in New Book
PORTLAND, Oregon (June 15th, 2012) – Cole Brown never imagined leaving his job in the Hip Hop music industry – until he made a most unexpected career change and became a pastor. The transition between these two worlds forms the basis for his new book Lies Hip Hop Told Me.
In Lies Hip Hop Told Me Cole Brown examines 14 slogans from the music he loves, in light of the teachings of the God he loves. Interacting with rap lyrics, Christian Scripture, history and other data, Brown addresses such famous slogans as “Only God Can Judge Me,” “Christianity is the White Man’s Religion,” and “Bi***es Ain’t S**t.”
Brown is the founding pastor of Emmaus Church in Portland, Oregon where he has served for six years. He previously worked as an A&R for legendary Hip Hop producer Teddy Riley (Heavy D, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg). It is his personal identification with Hip Hop music and culture that makes his critique of it unique. “I did not write this book to move people away from Hip Hop culture,” Brown explains, “but to move people toward redeeming what is broken within it.” His first book, Lies My Pastor Told Me, has been downloaded over 35,000 times and will be included in the physical release of Lies Hip Hop Told Me.
