2015 UPDATE: Steven “Truth” Malcolm has a new song out called “Fleek” that you can hear by clicking here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In 2011 Steve DeNeff and I co-authored a book called SoulShift. From the beginning our church, our staff, and Steve & I have talked about letting Spiritual Formation “go viral” in the church. Instead of controlling the process of following Christ, we should let it get a bit out of control.

In the process many churches and small groups have remixed and rethought everything we said in the book. A massive amount of resources were published, and continue to be published, including books on each shift. Churches created their own videos, advertising, sermons, songs, programs & everything else it seems.

Along the way I had a secret hope that someday, somewhere, someone would write a rap song about SoulShift.

That day has arrived.

Click the button here to listen to “Soul Shift” by Steven “Truth” Malcolm from The Edge Urban Fellowship in Grand Rapids, MI.

 The Edge is pastored by Troy Evans, a good friend and author of The Edge of Redemption.

Here are the lyrics from the SoulShift rap song… and some pics of Steven Malcolm:

MY MIND RENEWED/
MY SPIRIT TRANSFORMED/
SHAKEN FROM THE CORE I NO LONGER WILL CONFORM!

WATCH ME SOUL SHIFT(*4)

THE OLD ME IS CERTAINS/
MY FATHER GAVE ME PURPOSE/
TO CARRY OUT HIS WILL SOUL SHIFTIN ON THE SURFACE!

WATCH ME SOUL SHIFT(*4)

5th gear, I’m soul shiftin/
Takin up my cross, that’s gear gripin/
No longer conforming, no debating
See a cadastrafic event done took over call it Donte’s peak/
I use to love dat night life, sheet creepin wit dime pieces/
High blowin dat stank, cheifin/
Totin 40 glock cals beamin/
Yea i go to church, hallelujah, praise God amen, He in me and I in Him/
lookin good, but dead in my sin/
A robot to say the least/
I did my church thang den it was back to doin me/
Gettin mines, me, me, me/
So blind I couldn’t see/
That a savior had been purged/
Fo this life I don’t deserve/
Half steppin my faith/
Putting smiles on my face/
Still livin in darkness spittin all on Yo grace/
But chu still molded dis soldier/
Shifted me from below the surface/
Takin and makin me walkin in your purpose/
To live in dis light Lord I dnt deserve it!

MY MIND RENEWED/
MY SPIRIT TRANSFORMED/
SHAKEN FROM THE CORE I NO LONGER WILL CONFORM!

WATCH ME SOUL SHIFT(*4)

THE OLD ME IS CERTAINS/
MY FATHER GAVE ME PURPOSE/
TO CARRY OUT HIS WILL SOUL SHIFTIN ON THE SURFACE!

WATCH ME SOUL SHIFT(*4)
