Lively is a minister, theology teacher and former missionary, but her alter-ego may have been God’s bigger plan. According to Keith, Lively’s newfound PR person, Lively is NOT in the game for fame or fortune, rather she simply wants people to find Jesus through her music. Her music is available on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, but for you cheap-os who can’t support artists like Lively with your coin, here’s a playlist of her songs on YouTube.
My personal favorite? Wake Up, Step Up – because it makes me feel like the world of doing molly and going to church finally have a reason to intersect.
“The devil’s crowd has no hope. Cussin’ and fussin’ and doin’ dope”
“If young Moses doesn’t trust you imma shoot you”
“Your friends your pals do not mean well, but watch out,watch out, they’ll lead you to hell”
When told about her newfound fame, this is how Lively responded
Even musical icons like Questlove have weighed in on how fire this album is. https://www.instagram.com/p/BIX9OXAhVSG/
Also, the internet can’t even handle it.
When was the last time an album got reviews like this?
P.S. She also has a book on Amazon called “The Woolly Worm”
Here’s part of the description:
The Woolly Worm! The metamorphosis of the woolly worm will leave you with a deeper appreciation of God’s designs. When we look at a furry worm we rarely have the insight or information that equips us to think of a beautiful butterfly or moth.
