Christwork is a tribute to the West Coast Christian hip-hop legends who influenced Brinson’s style and faith. Included are artists such as TunnelRats, T-Bone, Gospel Gangstaz, 2Five Tha Hood Rev, L.A. Symphony, and RedCloud.

Christwork is a dynamic track that showcases the work of Christ in the lives of believers.

Brinson raps about how Christ has changed him from a gangster to a disciple. How he is now living for God’s kingdom. The song also features a catchy chorus that proclaims “Christwork, Christwork, that’s what I’m about / Christwork, Christwork, that’s what I shout”.

Brinson says that the song was inspired by his own testimony and the testimonies of others who have encountered God’s grace and power. He says that he wants to motivate listeners to share their stories of how Christ has worked in their lives, and to challenge them to live for Him.

“I want people to know that Christ is the reason why I rap, why I live, and why I breathe,” Brinson explained. “He has done so much for me and for so many others. He has given us a new identity, a new mission, and a new hope. He has done the work that we could never do ourselves. That’s why I call it Christwork.”

Christwork is available now on GodChaserz.com and all digital platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, and more. Fans can also watch the official music video for the song below!

Brinson is a veteran Christian hip-hop rapper who has been making music since 2006.

B.E.R.I.D.O.X. "My Passion"

B.E.R.I.D.O.X. features Brinson on K-Drama produced remix

Passion is defined as an intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction. It is also defined as an emotion. In this world, we all have a passion for something. The question is, do we have a passion to serve and represent God?

B.E.R.I.D.O.X. and Brinson are two artists that strive to serve God in all they do. They declare their passion for Christ, and they desire to represent Him to the world and introduce Jesus to them. They describe the realities they face and choose not to waver in their faith as they push against the grain to pursue Christlike maturity while living in the 21st Century.

My Passion (Remix) is produced by K-Drama. If you are familiar with his catalog, you know it has the potential to blow your speakers if you don’t monitor the volume setting. At the same time, with B.E.R.I.D.O.X. and Brinson’s lyrical rhyming ability, the listeners are sure to be pleased with hearing why these artists are so passionate on the mic for Christ. Hence their chant, “It’s My Passion”.

Listen to the podcast below!

The Positive Side of CHH

CHH is not without its flaws, but there is plenty to be thankful for.

During this season of Thanksgiving, FiveTwenty wants to wish everyone in the CHH community a blessed holiday. Even in a world full of uncertainty,  God has not forsaken nor abandoned us. Let this passage from Philippians remind us, “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

What are you thankful for when it comes to Christian hip-hop?

Maybe it is your favorite artist or a specific project that dropped this year. It could be relationships that have formed within the community. Perhaps you attribute your encounter with Christ to the genre. Whatever it is, now is a great time to share and show that appreciation.

Earlier this week, FiveTwenty held a panel via our YouTube channel that discussed the positives of CHH.

Featured on the stream were Josh Galla (New Release Today), Damo (Trackstarz), Bars (Bars and Beats Entertainment), and Brinson (Godchaserz Entertainment). Everyone involved is firmly invested in the CHH community. There was a lot of great discussion along with examples of showing thankfulness for a genre that means so much to so many people.

You can watch the full stream below, but here are a few notable quotes:

“People are seeing positives in CHH where they want to be a part of it, want to be exposed to it, and want to further the message of the Gospel through it. It’s a good time.” – Josh Galla

“I think something I’m looking forward to is more of the exposure. Seeing more people in my age group starting to realize that the stereotype of CHH being corny isn’t true anymore. I think that stereotype has lasted way too long.” – Bars

“I feel like there’s a lot more genuineness with the music, a lot more individuality, and a lot more diversity with the styles and sound of music.” – Damo

“We have so much potential to grow and to advance the Kingdom with this vehicle of Christian rap. I think that is such a positive.” – Brinson

This was a great conversation that I was able to be a part of. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. These are the types of discussions that we all need to be embracing and it is a goal of FiveTwenty to provide a platform for them to take place. Both in 2023 and beyond. When we talk about unity and being stronger together, here is an easy place to start. So, if you have something you want to talk about, much like Josh did, let us know and we’ll do our best to make it happen!
