(VIDEO) Coke Bumaye Dishes On His Latest Project, If You Love Me Let Me Know

I recently had an opportunity to link up with Jackson based hip hop artist Coke Bumaye at Conkrete Sneaker Boutique to discuss his latest project, If You Love Me Let Me Know.

Born Corey Stokes, Coke Bumaye is more than a rapper. He’s a father, son, brother and writer committed to #changingtheculture through his various works in and around the community.

Watch our interview below.

‘Free State Of Jones’ Based On A True Mississippi Story + Watch Clip

As a Mississippian it’s a little annoying that most, if not all, movies based on my home state involve a slavery or race related story but Free State of Jones sparked my interest for a couple of reasons. The first reason – Matthew McConaughey and the second reason being that I’m actually familiar with Jones County, Mississippi where the film is based.

McConaughey stars in the film as a poor white farmer, Newton “Newt” Knight, who led a rebellion during the Civil War. Knight assembled a group of like-minded people to fight for freedom, equality and the notion that no one owns a child of God.

Check out a clip from the film below.

Looks interesting, right?

The film was released in theaters last week but I’ll be going to check it out this weekend. I’ve seen several reviews of it, most of them positive, so I’m excited about watching it for myself.

Film To Depict Hillsong United’s Rise To Fame

One of my favorite worship songs of all time is “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” by Hillsong United. No matter what mood I’m in, whenever I listen I’m guaranteed to shed a tear. The song makes me reflect on the goodness of God and how He has carried me as and when I was afraid to face something in my life.

It’s a remarkable record from a remarkable band who is the main focus of a new film by Pure Flix, the largest faith and family production studio in the world.

Hillsong: Let Hope Rise is a film that chronicles the band’s journey from being a tiny church in Sydney, Australia to an international ministry that has sold over 17 million albums.

“Anyone who regularly attends a church knows Hillsong’s music by heart. That’s how influential they’ve become,” said producer Jonathan Bock. “And yet despite the fame and adulation, they’re still just a humble worship band trying to do what tens of thousands of other worship bands try to do every week — glorify God through their music. How they balance that is a fascinating and surprising story.”

The highly anticipated film will be released in theaters this fall, on September 16th.

Religion is such a sensitive topic to discuss whether you’re around people who share your same beliefs or not – and that’s why we included it in our discussion for this week.

This episode comes at a great time with the recent passing of the controversial “religious freedom” bill here in Mississippi by Gov. Phil Bryant (also known as the Devil).
