Gospel Artist Deitrick Haddon takes on Jay-Z & Kanye West with Remixed Versions of ‘Mercy’ & ‘No Church in the Wild’
Our friend at 1800Gospel.com posted videos of gospel artist Deitrick Haddon, who recently announced his split from wife Damita Haddon, rapping over Kanye West and Jay-Z beats for recent releases, “Mercy” and “No Church in the Wild.”
Looks like D-Haddy has switched up the lyrics and offered his own faith-based spin on the popular mainstream rap songs.
Recently, on Twitter, the recording artist explained his logic for doing something he knows will be viewed as controversial among many traditional Christians that will immediately decry indulgence in what is classified as "worldly" or "secular" music.
"There are a few songs i really like & enjoy listening to because of the melody or beat. However the lyrics do nothing to build my spirit!!" wrote Haddon. "So..on the Re-versed mixed tape..I take some of those songs & replace their lyrics with those that will encourage & uplift someone."
