Kurtis Blow Preaches “the Gospel” on New Tour

kurtis-blow.jpgHip-Hop pioneer, Kurtis Blow, was the first rap artist to sign with a major record label and release a gold single with “The Breaks.” Now, Blow is focusing his attention not only towards hip-hop, but spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As a licensed minister, Blow is currently embarking on the Hip-Hop Ministry Tour with his new group, The Trinity. Blow, who released his new album, Hip Hop Ministry, on May 8, is joining with rappers Chris Flow and Ricky B to release The Trinity’s debut LP, Just Do It. In order to promote their new albums, the trio is currently touring the country. “The tour will be a great opportunity to promote the music and ministry, but first and foremost, we want to see lives changed,” says Chris Flow. “The Hip-Hop Ministry Tour is a God sent ministry that will bring the hip-hop generation to salvation.” For more information on The Trinity and their tour dates, visit www.trinityhiphop.com.

    Is this the new move now? Rappers get older and want to push religion on wax? Rev. Run… Mase had a book called “Revelations”… and I keep hearing about some Jesus and Jigga book? Are any of these sincere or just switching to another “market”?

    I dont care if dude went gold… Kurtis Blow sucks even by 1980′s standards. He’s the wackest of all “Hip Hop legends.”

    And Irene… I don’t know if this is the new move for rappers or not. But I do know that this should be the “new move” for all humans in general. I give props to Kurtis Blow for advancing in life and dedicating his existance towards spreading the Gospel.

    But his music still sucks
