Pastor Carl Lentz of Hillsong New York City has proven to be a basketball fan and friends with some of the biggest names in pop culture. Now, Lentz is revealing his love of hip-hop by praising No Malice for his latest song, "Jesus Christ."
Lentz took to Twitter to promote Christian rapper No Malice's song. The rapper, formerly of the duo Clipse, is from the same state as the popular pastor who has mentored the likes of NBA player Kevin Durant and pop star Justin Bieber.
"Hey @NoMalice757 .... SONG IS REAL, REAL GOOD ... Can't wait to hear the album," Lentz tweeted. "All Virginia. All 757. All day!!!"
In a previous message on LifeChurch.tv, Lentz spoke about how he had to become comfortable with the fact that there were certain cultural things he enjoyed that were not popular among other pastors.
"I'm kind of like not your typical pastor in some regards. I used to be ashamed of some of that stuff. But then I realized, well, I actually do get along with guys who play basketball and video games," he said. "I get along a lot better with a dude in a club than I do in a pastor's green room, being that guy. I think it's encouraging to be a part of churches like ours that champion who you are."
