You are watching the throne/These Southern Baptist preachers are now in the zone

Yo Jay-Z, Kanye West! You better watch out.

While you two were ballin’ in Paris and taking home all the Grammys in the rap categories at the 55th annual Grammy Awards, this pastor and wife team spent a little time to design one heck of an outreach video to help get the attention of the youth…using the power of hip-hop. Your seats on the throne may just very well be occupied.

“If you wanna reach the children on the street, then you gotta do a rap to a hip-hop beat,” Pastor Jim Colerick declares.

As this three-minute song marches on, Colerick’s shows off some crazy Rick Ross swagger:

“My rhymes are fly, my beats is sick/my crew is big and it keeps getting bigga/That’s ’cause Jesus Christ is my n***a.”

Who cares if the beats are as stale as a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air soundtrack. And who cares if this video has been victimized by some lonely bored adolescent looking to get some on WorldStarHipHop. This video is most certain to be a viral sensation by the end of the day. So what are you waiting for? Go tell it on the mountain, o’er the hills and everywhere. And tell ’em…Jesus is my n***a.

Before you go, don’t forget to laugh.

One version of the video posted by MrDxt shows that West Dubuque 2nd Church of Christ Youth Outreach Program were the original curators of the song. The church apparently has a website. We cannot confirm if the church authorized the video or not, especially since a message dated back to 2004 states: “Sadly, our church has closed it’s doors. Its been an honor and and a [privilege] to bring Christs’ message to the West Dubuque community for all these years.” 

Thanks to Joseph B. for alerting me to the video. 

So what do you think?
Funny or unfunny?
Well done, good and faithful servant?
