Andy Mineo Is Not What You Thought He Was

-edited

Andy Mineo has taken his positive message to new levels, but don't you dare call him a Christian rapper.

(AllHipHop Features) Andy Mineo has had a long history of pushing the boundaries of acceptable norms in Hip-Hop. The Syracuse, New York, native has been a staple amongst different subsets of Hip-Hop, including what people have inaccurately labeled Christian Rap, but his newest project Work in Progress, offers fresh, revealing introspection on Mineo. He's got his sights on an ever-expanding audience and galvanizing his existing fanbase. Basically, he's not interested in being inside any box that you may want to trap him in. "I take a lot of risks creatively, just trying to push to find interesting sounds sonically and lyrical concepts that are usually very vulnerable,” he explains. “I’m very honest in my music and I think that’s the thing that people are most drawn to about what I create.”

Mineo has no problem discussing his growth as an artist over the years, however, during his sit-down with our boy Slops, he reveals that he can take risks in his music because it’s more rewarding for him and his fans. “I‘ve found that when you're vulnerable in your music it actually creates more unity,” he says. “More people are able to resonate with what you’re saying and understand where you’re coming from.”

So with all of these rappers that once proclaimed they lived a gospel now renouncing their faith and claiming themselves "God" by definition: indescribable and uncontainable by a construct, where does this leave them mentally and spirituality in respect to the redemption from hell fire and wrath of judgement that Jesus Christ offers through the Gospel?

You are completely missing the point as to the why, and the impact on what. These artists trying to reach a larger subset of people, in doing so, mimicking the exact same structural awareness that Jesus Christ has said we all should be doing, relative to touching lives, being loving, and bringing others to Christ, this ideology allows them to do that, where previously they were not, they were catering to a Christian audience, those of which are already Christians, do you see the irony? The point of all of this is to bring more people to Christ and in doing so, to quote crossover, does not make them any more or less Christian.
