Live For Christ is the most gangster way of loving God by Eric Cohen and we’re here for it. It is uplifting, moving and most of all, groovy. Eric delivers a potent mix of powerful lyrics and some killer beats that ignites your spirit and stirs the soul. His real life experiences serves as inspiration. As a result, he has his way of creating incredibly moving pieces.
The soundscape on this number is wide as the song exists in the intersection of Hip-Hop and devotional songs. Eric’s Church influence does not go unheard, with some great layering of choir and immaculate keyboard rendition. The song is a miracle within the genre of hip-hop and rap as both are not known for being gentle. But here we have Eric Cohen, a natural rule breaker, telling us how he’s seen life, I mean actually seen life and went on to find God. The song is mixed and mastered to perfection making the listening experience a delightful one. The number is a soul touching one. It inspires you to live life to the fullest with Christ at the center.
You can imagine this song playing as a Priest walks to the altar. A perfect match would be Frair Lawrence from Romeo + Juliet (1996). The film was the first of a kind, adapting Shakespeare to a modern setting. A lot of people forget that Shakespeare had a deep connection with his audience and wrote specifically keeping them in mind. You must check out our modern day Shakespeare of the rap world and see how his feet fairs within his sonnets on the links attached below.
