Hey family. Recently DJ B Plus had encouraging conversation with Scribe Music, a Christian hip hop artist from British Columbia, Canada, was particularly enlightening. Scribe Music is not only known for his compelling music but also for his role as a worship leader at his local church. And it was an affirming discussion that delved into the heart of artistry, authenticity, faith and spiritual growth.
The Journey of an Artist

Scribe Music opened up about his background, detailing his evolution as a recording artist and his dedication as a worship leader. His song “The Art of Knowing” encapsulates his pursuit of a deeper relationship with God, a theme that resonates throughout his work. This pursuit, as he explained, is not without its challenges, especially when trying to balance a music career with a personal spiritual journey.
Authenticity and Vulnerability in Music

One of the most striking aspects of their talk was the emphasis on authenticity and vulnerability. Scribe stressed the importance of maintaining a genuine connection with God, rather than presenting a facade of faith. He believes that artists should not shy away from expressing both the struggles and triumphs of their faith through their music. This vulnerability is what allows listeners to connect on a deeper level and see the reality of a spiritual journey.
The Canadian Christian Hip Hop Scene

The gentlemen also touched on the vibrant Canadian Christian hip hop scene, which is brimming with talented artists. Scribe’s experiences within this community have shaped his approach to music and ministry, highlighting the significance of supporting and contributing to the growth of these artistic communities.
Faith: Sowing Seeds Through Art

A particularly profound moment in the conversation came when B Plus and Scribe discussed the concept of viewing one’s gifts as seeds to sow, rather than merely fruit for others to consume. The shift in perspective can fundamentally change how an artist approaches their ministry and their art. Scribe shared personal anecdotes about learning to be selective with collaborations, ensuring that his work is stewarded properly and aligns with his values.
The Crown and the Throne: Pursuing God Above All

Scribe offered a powerful metaphor about the crown and the throne, discussing the human desire for recognition versus the pursuit of God’s kingdom. He pointed out that true favor comes when one pursues God for His own sake, not for the benefits that might follow. This idea was beautifully illustrated with the image of a king who, once recognized and crowned, no longer needs to display his crown to prove his authority.
Looking Ahead: Scribe Music’s Upcoming Endeavors

As they wrapped up the conversation, Scribe gave us a glimpse into his plans for the year. He expressed excitement about contributing to his church’s music department, working on new songs and albums, and engaging in various ministry projects, including a trip to Malawi for a video series. His commitment to honoring God’s timing in his music and ministry endeavors was evident, promising that any future releases will come from a place of deep-rooted faith and encouragement.
Final Thoughts

The dialogue with Scribe Music was not only enjoyable but also deeply impactful. His insights on artistry, faith, and community will leave a lasting impression on you as it did us. And as we continue to explore the intersection of creativity and spirituality, let’s remember the importance of authenticity, the power of vulnerability, and the transformative perspective of seeing our gifts as seeds to sow into the lives of others.
