The Crossover Connection Week 2: A Spiritual Salt n Pepa

At the time I started attending dances in high school, Salt n Pepa’s song Push It was first released. As the intro to this song started playing, everyone flooded the dance floor, even those just there for the slow dances. I searched Christian music for 30 years trying to find a sound similar to Salt n Pepa’s genre. While you’ll never find an identical match as you crossover from secular music to Christian, I believe Group 1 Crew is the spiritual Salt n Pepa to fill this void.

Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [[e]and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord, 20 At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father, Ephesians 5:19-20.

Although the attached best of tracks doesn’t include songs like Breakdown and Let it Roll, the variety of ballads, hip hop and rap will keep your fingers snapping to the beat. When I taught high school Bible at Red Lion Christian Academy, a couple of students pointed me in the right direction to modernize my music collection. Their insight led me to Group 1 Crew who has become one of my go to’s when I need a spiritual pick me up. I pray that the lyrics of Group 1 Crew’s songs will uplift your heart and soul this week.
