“In This Moment,” the new EP by acclaimed hip hop artist Legin is more than a collection of songs. From discussion about race relations to a cry for justice, the tracks reflect his work coordinating a prayer march in Norfolk Virginia, following the death of George Floyd. The event brought more than 100 churches and 5000 people together in a show of unity.
On this week’s episode of Between You & Me, Legin is full of wisdom about the EP, and the issues that affect his life as a black man and father. He discusses what happens when Christians make a God of politics and opens up about the personal cost of being a trusted black voice in a primarily white Evangelical space. He also explains the toll racial reconciliation can take on your mental health and how this helped to form “In This Moment.”
