HOUSTON – A new song by two Houston stars cranks out the bass, all while beating down boundaries. The unlikely duo of gangster rapper Slim Thug and preacher Joel Osteen is breaking the internet as much for their pairing, as for their musical message.
Slim, a member of Osteen’s Lakewood Church for many years, used clips of the pastor on “Chuuch,” a song on the rapper’s latest album “Hogg Life, Volume 2: Still Surviving″.
And while mixing religion and rap might not be the norm, for many the sermon and the song are a perfect fit.
“You can’t hang out with chickens and expect to soar with eagles,” Osteen says over a church organ vamp. “Eagles soar with other eagles.”
