What started off as a ‘chant of hook’ in the studio has become listeners favourite Gospel Rap song so much that Tru South’s “Head Full of Dreams” has climbed its way to the number 1 spot on PraiseWorld Radio’s Top 10 Countdown.

SelahAfrik speculated this about Tru South because prior to the release of “Head Full of Dreams,” there were very few Gospel Rap songs with such spiritual depth yet so Hip Hop.

I caught up with the unique Rap Evangelist in a chat to quiz him about the success of the song (you know me… I can’t help it), his response to my questions confirmed what I’d been thinking. This guy is not your everyday rapper, he’s not an entertainer either, he is a minister!

Still in doubt? Read his answers to these questions:

I went in like…

SelahAfrik: Hey Tru, how does it feel to be No.1 on PraiseWorld Radio Top 10 Countdown?

Tru South: Good afternoon…

(Oops! I lost my good manners… Sorry Tru).

Tru South: Being Number 1 on the Top 10 after just 1 month of the release of #headfullofdreams is amazing but I’m not surprised because it’s Gods grace at work. I just feel blessed, mightily graced and favored.

SelahAfrik: So now that we have “Head Full of Dreams,” what should we be expecting next, a video?

Tru South: Now that the song is making a difference out there… I’m gonna be working on a video too. So yeah, expect a video pretty soon.

SelahAfrik: Tell us what makes your lyrics so real (Hip Hop) yet so spiritual?

Tru South: About my lyrics… Ermm… I think it has to do with the revelation of the undiluted Gospel of Christ that I’ve gotten from God’s word. When I rhyme, I just put the word of God in my spirit into rhythm and melody …so it’s spiritual and powerful because that’s a feature of the gospel.

(There you have the confirmation)

SelahAfrik: Give a shoutout.

Tru South: Thanks a million for this opportunity… Shout out to SelahAfrik.com, more grace!
