Da'T.R.U.T.H. has Tweet exchange with renowned author Ravi Zacharius

GRAMMY-nominated hip-hop artist Da'T.R.U.T.H. shared a cryptic exchange with internationally respected Christian apologist and author Dr Ravi Zacharias via Twitter last week, and it triggered a worldwide internet response. With questions surrounding the idea of truth, God and religion, thousands of readers shared their concern for the outspoken artist wondering if he was questioning his faith. In reality it was revealed that Da'T.R.U.T.H. wasn't confused about his Christian beliefs, but he and Zacharias were sharing lyrics from his new single "Religion". The track is from the rapper's forthcoming album 'It's Complicated' to be released in the spring.

Speaking about his Tweet exchange Da'T.R.U.T.H. said, "Yes, I wanted to reveal my single, but more than that, I wanted to share REAL thoughts and concerns that I have struggled with throughout my life. Is there one true religion? Is it arrogant to be exclusive? Can we be certain that Christianity is the only religion that God acknowledges as true? Many people, Christians included, struggle with these questions, and I want them to know they aren't alone. Through this song and my entire album, I want to provide a soundtrack that articulates some of the internal twists and turns that people experience concerning exclusivity in religion and ultimately start a discussion among each other and together we can resolve the one that has to be true." CR
