As a 40 (plus) year old white dude, you probably wouldn’t imagine that I’m that into rap music. But I LOVE rap and rock with an edge! So back in the day when Run DMC and Aerosmith did Walk This Way… well, let’s just say that I think that there’ll be music in Heaven just like that!

When I first heard Lil Prophet’s Hulk Hogan On’em, I was hooked! And now Lil Prophet has a new track out called PROPaDUCK, and it’s easily one of the top tracks in my hot list on my mp3 player!

So when Lil Prophet (a.k.a. Ryan Kelsie) agreed to do an interview with me I was pretty pumped up! But I did have to coach him quite a bit about how he kept calling me ‘sir’… that just made me feel really old…

What I found was a young man with a BIG heart for sharing the Gospel, especially in a world where young people are being pulled in every direction by messages that only tear them down. But what I was most impressed with is this young man’s wisdom. I respect how grounded he is, especially when it comes to seeking Godly counsel.

Watch the interview here, and check out his music on!
