I got a chance the other day to sit down with Christian rapper Mike “Phresh Air” Coleman for an interview, and here’s what he had to say about his ministry:
Li’el: How would you categorize your music?
Phresh Air: Christian rap- rap music from a Christian’s perspective. All of it is aimed using a plethora of different ways to glorify Christ!
Li’el: How have you seen your music affect people?
Phresh Air: I have a friend who told me about how the song ‘Yo God’ helped her to see her pride. People say my music helps them to see God.
Li’el: Tell me about the tour you are currently on!
Phresh Air: The Future is Now Tour is headed up by Christian artist Ason and his wife Christy Love. It is a collection of Christian artists coming together to bring people closer to God.
Li’el: What is the goal of your ministry?
Phresh Air: “We exist to spark encounters with Christ through media.” The Bible breaks down people into two separate categories – Believers/non-believers. So my hopes with Building & Making Noise Ministries is to see as many people as God would allow, be encountered by t he power of God through my music with the Word of God.
Li’el: What lessons have you learned along this journey that you would like to share with others?
Phresh Air: I’m a Christian first. I’m a rapper second. My identity is in the fact that I am a child of God, not in my ability to rap. I am a servant not a superstar. In saying that my aim is to make Christ famous, not bring myself glory.
Got to love a man of God doing His work!! Keep checking for more info on Phresh Air, and check out the tour’s website at thefutureisnowtour.com
