CHHcago "GOD DID" cypher

CHHcago joins forces to drop the GOD DID cypher

Bodies; Numbers; Many. These terms get used to equate, and describe, how Unity looks. A more accurate description? ONE.

Unity isn’t just in numbers or in masses, but in movement. Moving like parts of the body, working together, so one singular action is taken. One common goal is obtained. Unity in the common goal of advancing the Kingdom of GOD. It is what brings CHHcago to the forefront.

What is CHHcago?

Consisting of friends, colleagues, and co-collaborators who have known each other for years, the group is putting on for God and the Chi. The city’s finest has enlisted and are pushing their first public offering, the GOD DID cypher.

Members include Cell Blok and Thre who spearhead the list of longtime contributors to the CHH space.

Aasha Marie, TheArkutec, BRM, Hector Dominguez, Kenneth Townsel, King David tha Vessel, Regula, and St. Dru all put their own stamp on this famously recycled track. The cypher is filled with dynamic punchlines and sound doctrinal content. Representing God well, and refusing to be outdone, CHHcago is blazing a trail of revival and redemption for their city and surrounding areas.

Check out the official visual for the GOD DID cypher below.

FiveTwenty Live Stream: Queer Christianity???

One of the goals of the FiveTwenty Collective platform is to advocate for unity within the Body of CHRIST.

First, and quite often, this involves having difficult dialogues with the intent of bridging any gaps in understanding.

We filter current events and issues concerning The Church through the WORD of GOD. We believe that we have to be willing to take these hard, unpopular looks and have engaging discussions in an effort to galvanize the troops. Doing so provides the Saints with actionable intelligence and CHRIST-like responses to use. Our job is to trumpet GOD’s heart and mind concerning HIS people as it relates to indie, CHRISTian culture. 

We’ve seen an increasing onset of societally unsound doctrines. The FiveTwenty Collective podcast crew (Eric Boston, xeroforhire, and King David tha Vessel),  along with special guest Switch of the That’s Not Christian Podcast, sat down to tackle one of those falsehoods currently making the rounds: “queer Christianity”.

Could it really be possible to love GOD, live Saved, and be in open rebellion to HIS WORD?

The short and direct answer to that question is a resounding “No”.

This live stream was inspired by a video from The Crew’s Hip Hop Corner. In their video Openly Gay Christian rapper Erica Mason Gives advice on dealing with Hate comments from Christians, The Crew shares statements made by the aforementioned artist. Mason stated:

“I understand that their feelings of anger, hurt, and frustration is their problem. Not mine. If a Christian dislikes me because I’m openly queer, that’s their burden to carry. Not mine. I refuse to allow someone’s anger, disgust, frustration, etc to stop me from seeing God clearly and being loved clearly.”

Our conversation centered on the numerous ways the enemy will attempt to get individuals to buy into his lies.

The sin that one chooses causes one to make other choices by default…like being ostracized. Is criticism always criticism?

If we love someone, is it our duty to say something? Do we, as Christians, do a good job of speaking the truth in love? Are we as consistent against other sin issues as we are against homosexuality? Should we be willing to speak the truth, even at the risk of a platform’s popularity?

This conversation covered it all and then some. All respectfully. All biblically. 

It is the job of the Believer to earnestly contend for the Faith that was once delivered unto the Saints (Jude vs 3). It is our prayer that this, and other discussions like it, are fuel to the fire and encouragement to the CHH space and beyond. Especially as we continue to prioritize advancing GOD’s Kingdom, HIS way.

Why 40 for the album??
In June BRM turned 40 years old.  Life has definitely been a journey. So many ups and down’s we all go through in life, BRM looked more into the number 40. He found that 40 generally symbolized a period of testing, trial, or probation in the Bible.
During Moses’ life he lived forty years in Egypt and forty years in the desert before God selected him to lead his people out of slavery. The children of Israel were punished by wandering the wilderness for 40 years. Sometimes in life BRM had been wandering. This album has some real honest and reflective songs on it. As always, BRM has some fun with the music, but the last couple of years he have found himself examining his purpose, checking his why, and seeking GOD even when things have been hard.

Safe is a song of surrender. Too often we hold back from God, allowing the things we’ve seen and people we’ve encountered to make us gunshy in giving our all. Once we realize God is not like man – what we’ve seen, where we’ve been, what we’ve been – it ceases to matter anymore. In God’s will, we are Safe.

An anthem and a reminder to start over, being again. My Past is over, in Jesus, it’s all possible.

If our words hold so much, why do we waste them so often? Like everything else, we need to surrender our words to the Lord!
