Award-winning hip-hop artist KB shared what God has been teaching him recently and the hope he’s hoping to impart as he is on tour with his Reach Records family, including Lecrae, Andy Mineo and Trip Lee.
The 18-city “Unashamed Tour,” in partnership with William Morris Endeavor and Rush concerts kicked off March 14 and is making stops in major cities all across the country. Starring popular rappers Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Gawvi, Kb, Tedashii, and Trip Lee, the tour will also highlight some newer faces in the Reach Records movement, 1k Phew and Whatuprg.
The event aspires to provide hope in Christ to attendees in this current cultural climate riddled with doubt and anxiety.
Below is an edited transcript of an interview between featured artist on the tour KB and The Christian Post in which he reveals the importance of brotherhood and community even through conflict and how he follows peace with his Reach Records peers while on the road together.
Christian Post: The Unashamed Tour press release says the tour is hoping to “remind people of the power in Jesus’ word.” What does it mean to remind people of that?
KB: Reminding people of the power that is in Jesus’ words seem central to the mission of my existence, certainly the mission of my art. That’s the direction that I want my life to go, to help recalibrate the priority of what God says over what everybody else says.
I think what it means to be a fallen man in a fallen world is that we’re constantly going to be bombarded with all kinds of “words,” and there’s one word that saves, and to hear that in many kinds, shapes and sizes, and from different mouths, and different places, countries, whatever, you just need it all the time. And I just hope to play a little role in that.
CP: Has there been a theme God has been teaching you recently?
KB: I think the Lord has been doubling down on this concept of community for me. I led a six-week study at my church back in November and December on the necessity of the Christian brethren. Hebrews 3 makes it very clear that the means by which many of us will enter into Heaven will be on the words of brothers and sisters encouraging us. God uses the words of other folks you fellowship with to keep you. You can’t hear them if you’re not around them and so that’s been my conviction. I care real deeply about my community and all the pain that they have caused me and all the joy that I have had as a result. All of that has been a part of God’s “keeping KB saved” project.
CP: While on tour together how do you guys go about resolving conflict when you get into typical brother disputes?
KB: A lot of our conflict is over like philosophy and theology and stuff like that. Thankfully, it’s not over moral stuff like someone cursed me last night and now we need to fight or something like that, but my strategy is really to try to be a man of peace and not get too invested in being right and allow people to think about things differently than me and I go to sleep early. Those things really help mitigate problems.
