Lentz took to Twitter to promote Christian rapper No Malice's song. The rapper, formerly of the duo Clipse, is from the same state as the popular pastor who has mentored the likes of NBA player Kevin Durant and pop star Justin Bieber.
Despite the controversy in his personal life throughout the years, rapper DMX believes he has been called to become a pastor.
"That's definitely the final destination. Or, a destination. You never know how far God is going to allow me to get or how many people He is going to allow me to reach," the 45-year-old rapper born Earl Simmons told the nationally syndicated morning radio show "The Breakfast Club." "Before I go onstage I pray that I'm able to just touch one person. If I'm able to touch just one person then I've done something wonderful with my life, not just that moment."
The rapper has been the subject of controversy in media headlines with numerous arrests, a public battle with drug addiction and fathering 15 children with nine women. While he is unsure of how much influence he would have as a pastor, DMX said he believes God gave him his foundation as a rapper for a divine purpose. more >>

"To say that we're not sort of shell-shocked, I think would be wrong," Weaver told The Christian Post in an exclusive interview.
