Coretta Scott King once said, “It doesn’t matter how strong your opinions are. If you don’t use your power for positive change, you are indeed part of the problem.” Those sentiments are now shared by rapper Razzie, who at one-point defied positivity in his lyrics.
Eventually, Razzie found himself in a bind that led him to the church to be saved, and he hasn’t looked back since. His life and his music changed, and he became a Christian rapper, spreading his message in a different tone and context.
Christian rap is genre that has been picking up steam lately, and Razzie hopes the movement continues to spread, especially in his backyard of Broward County, Florida. The change wasn’t easy. Wanting to rid himself completely of his past ways of thinking, he chose to have his entire catalog from his rap past erased forever. Now the urgency to flood his supporters with positive and uplifting music is his primary goal.
Zenger News caught up with Razzie to discuss his transition, why losing some friends along the way was a blessing, and about some upcoming projects.
Percy Crawford interviewed Razzie for Zenger.

Razzie: I’ve been good, man. I’m vibin’ it out today.
Zenger: You recently released the “Only In Church” single. Will there be a follow-up to that single?
Razzie: I got a lot of things in the works. So, “Only In Church” just dropped. The video is already shot, and I will be dropping that soon. Other than that, I have some new releases coming. I’m working with some other Christian artists. I’m excited for those things coming up.
Zenger: On the song, “Only In Church,” you allude to the fact that you probably wouldn’t be here if you hadn’t found Jesus. What was your life like before you found your calling?
