Selling your soul for currency, anything to get on
Hell is for an eternity, hope you know where you're goin'
An industry full of wannabes, never will I conform (um)
Rappers today will do anything to make a buck including lying to their fans and selling their soul for fame and money.
While most rap fans consider “selling your soul” to be figurative just meaning that they are giving in to the record companies and radios to dumb down their music, Gem is talking literally. As a Christian he knows lying for profit is a sin, and without Christ hell is the outcome.
He then takes a variation on the standard evangelical question “If you die tonight, do you know if you will go to heaven or hell?” He hopes they do.
Most of the modern industry rappers are, at least in Gem’s eyes, wannabe’s, and he will never conform or “sell his soul” to the industry.
