Advent, day 21: prophet

Advent, day 21: prophet

I didn’t take this photo. It is of one of my favorite artists, rapper Lupe Fiasco. To me, a prophet has to be someone who speaks to the masses from the margins of the society. What I appreciate about Lupe’s lyrics is his willingness to critique the political structure and the culture that surrounds him. If you’re not familiar with his music, you should check him out.

  1. I was trying to think about what to post. I think you and I both did Michelle Alexander during lent. I couldn’t think of anyone but Lupe fits the bill.
