Ne-Yo, like Kirk Franklin, defends trap gospel music

Singer-songwriter Shaffer Chimere Smith, popularly known as Ne-Yo, is a layman music artist who conceives in the brand new “trap gospel” sound hitting airwaves and he defended it in an interview recently. The singer-songwriter referred God saying ‘make a joyful noise, which could be determined in Psalm 98:4 and Psalm 100:1, when formulating his thoughts on trap gospel to HipHollywood.

Ne Yo said that God said make a joyful noise, he did not tell to make a trap noise, make a gospel noise, make a country noise, he said make a noise. So they are all good.

Recently, Erica Campbell served usher in the “trap gospel” music with her track “I Luh God.” Trap gospel is a merger of God pored lyrics over a trap music sound. Trap rap is characterized by the substance of its lyrics, but it also comes with a trademark music: nailing 808-style sub-bass kick drums, antsy sixty-fourth-note hi-hats, dive-­bombing tom fills, as well as chilly cinematic strings.

While few might a bit worried of the new sound mixing fusing gospel as well as trap music, writer and producer and veteran gospel music artist Kirk Franklin came to save Campbell when appearing on NPR very recently.

He told that he just praise her efforts. He believes that attempting to make a message which is old as many millennia and attempt to make it culturally relevant, it is always a real tough thing to do. He always try to call up the heart of the person doing it and he is good friends with Erica.
