It's official - I love me some Caedmon's Call and Derek Webb, but I can't deny that the best Christian music being produced today is coming from the hip-hop realm. There has been a steady stream of guys who have wedded solid and strong theology with well-produced music, and if you've missed it you need to turn off your local Christian station that plays the same 20 songs over and over and go pick up an album like the 116 Clique's 13 Letters. Lecrae is another such guy, and he's got a brand new album out. Check out this track, "Rebel," which includes some nice samples of Mark Driscoll's preaching.
