Sorry, but there is a church in the Wild.

CHURCH IN THE WILD. New Church, Part 2.

Sorry Jay-Z, your song has a dope beat, but I know there’s a church in the Wild. Admission: I’ve become an Easter and Christmas church-goer. ¬°Gasp! I know.

He’s a talented guy and I got the chance to spend some time with him, relax, and pick his brain. Even though it was a […]
