HOUSTON, TX - A new song by two of Houston's own cranks out the bass, all while beating down boundaries. The unlikely duo of gangster rapper Slim Thug, and preacher Joel Osteen is breaking the internet as much for their pairing, as for their musical message.
Slim, a member of Osteen's Lakewood Church for many years, used clips of the pastor on "Chuuch", a song on the rappers latest release "Hogg Life Volume 2". And while mixing religion and rap might not be the norm, for many the sermon and the song are a perfect fit.
The message of the song is basically to live a good life, you have to keep good people around you. It's a song full of solid advice, no matter what your beliefs. To that we say, Amen!
Lakewood Church released this in regards to the song, "Pastor Osteen did not collaborate with Slim Thug’s release 'Chuuch'."
