Shai Linne talks about his new album: Lyrical Theology Part 1: Theology

I’m a big fan of Shai Linne. His sound is clear and crisp and his lyrics are powerful and edifying. He is gospel centered and not afraid to speak the truth, though it is often unpopular. I especially appreciate his latest album, “Lyrical Theology Part 1: Theology.” Not many artists are ready to tackle 555874_10151461581459003_1059131990_nthe issues that Shai Linne does. His song “Fal$e Teacher$” calls out by name prosperity preachers who are leading many astray. His “Hypostatic Union” addresses the incomprehensible topic of Christ’s two natures. He even has a song defending amillennialism (“the Millennium”). Needless to say…if you love theology and like hip hop (or even if you just love theology!), this album deserves a listen. But don’t take your thinking cap off! Shai addresses some deep topics, so be ready to be challenged and edified.

Here is a recent interview Shai did over at the Gospel Coalition blog (click link for full interview):

Lyrical Theology and Fal$e Teacher$: Shai Linne on Hip-Hop Polemics

For years Shai Linne has spoken of his music in terms of “lyrical theology.” This month, the motto became an album. The first in a new trilogy of projects from the Washington, D.C.-based hip-hop artist, Lyrical Theology Part 1: Theology is a 16-song fusion of complex rhymes, rugged beats, and biblical truth. Kind of like a soundtrack for your theological journey.

You can stream one of the tracks, “Theology Q & A (feat. Stephen the Levite),” below. (Lyrics are available here.)

I corresponded with Shai [Twitter | Blog | Lamp Mode Recordings] about the new album, how it compares with his previous projects, the controversial “Fal$e Teacher$” song, and more.
