On the latest episode of The Gunn Show, Vancouver-based hip hop recording artist Matt Brevner joined Sheila to talk about his journey to working at Rebel News.

Here's a bit of what Matt had to say:

“When you are a bit of a trailblazer in a community, you become a bit of a big fish in a small pond — and I don't say that to toot my own horn.

“...but people held me to a certain status, and 'regard' in the community. And the difficult thing — especially in the arts — it's historically very liberal, now very left... you almost have to toe the line, by default. Even if these aren't necessarily your beliefs.

“...I was by no means a “Christian artist” — I would say that, up until maybe four years ago, Jesus was my savior but not my Lord. But I didn't shy away from speaking about Him in press or in my music... so I was always that Christian artist — [people would say], oh, well I don't really like Christians but Brevner's cool.”

This is just an excerpt from the latest episode of The Gunn Show.
