-What would you say to Christians who might challenge the legitimacy of the spiritual value of your music on the grounds of its extremity?
Well, first I'd say that I don't think there's anything extreme about hip hop. It's a music genre, just like many others, that was seen as extreme only because it's newness. As it gets older, it's extremity wears off and it becomes normal.

-What do you believe you are offering Christian audiences that "pop" Christian groups are not?
My style is a lot more underground than the current pop artists in Hip Hop or other Christian genres. I'm not a fan of pop music. Not that it's bad, it's just not my taste. I like music that has more soul and depth to it and I think that's what separates my product from theirs.
-Do you believe there is any value in pop Christian groups?
Of course. I think pop culture needs a Christian voice just like any other culture does. And if the content is rich enough it can reach people I can't. But I think it's limited in that it also can't reach certain audiences that I can. We all have to run in our lane and find the value in what we do.
-What is your understanding of the role of beauty in your music?

I want all of my music and the art surrounding it, from videos to album covers and logos to be beautiful. I want it to be the kind of beauty that God would be proud to claim as something of His. Ultimately if it's not beautiful it's gonna be difficult for me to call it music.
-What is your understanding of your portrayal of the attributes of God in your music?
I think His attributes are foundational in my more didactic songs. I'm vocal about them in some songs and I try to display them in less explicit ways too. Things like His beauty, as we just talked about, .
