Worship Wednesday: Zauntee | God Taught Me

Zauntee – God Taught Me

Don’t like rap?  Wait!  Don’t leave yet!  While this song certainly isn’t the typical worship song you would sing in church, it has a catchy beat and a great theme running through the lyrics.  “When they ask me why I’m different I say, God Taught Me”.

And for those who like a heavy bass line, your subs will get the work out they crave during the chorus!

With Christian Rap artists like Lecrae, Andy Mineo, NF, Trip Lee and Tedashii releasing popular songs that are even gaining traction from audiences that typically do not explore the Christian genres, it’s encouraging to see the way that God’s word is spreading.  If the first time someone experiences the positive, uplifting message from God is in the light hearted lyrics of a song – it’s a start.  If someone is trying to live a Christ centered life, but has a love for rap music…and “Christian Rap” can displace a few secular albums from their music collection…that’s a victory.  Or, if you just like the beat of a good rap song, but also want to hear a positive message…you win too!

Zauntee is a young man at 18, but already filled with a passion to make a difference.

“His mission is to help listeners realize that they don’t have to be what the culture says that they’re “supposed to be”. “The rap game really focuses on brainwashing young people who don’t have any real role models,” he states, “most kids think that the only way to be fulfilled in life is to follow the crowd.”

“I make music people want, with a message that they need,” says Zauntee, “this generation wants things to change, they just need someone to lead them.”

Zauntee – God Taught Me Lyrics

[Pre Chorus]

When they ask me how I did it I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me how I’m winning I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me why I’m different I say, God Taught Me
This my time to get it
God Taught Me

[Chorus]

When they ask me how I did it I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me how I’m winning I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me why I’m different I say, God Taught Me
This my time to get it
God Taught Me

Verse 1:

I have never made a song that I do not like
People always changing colors like a stoplight
Ima call you lefty cuz i know you not right
If you thought I was done you should learn from Saint Nick and
Check twice
Ask me how I got here I’ll say God brought me
Ask me who this power from it’s God not me
Every step I’m taking I know God’s got me
I learned from the best, you can tell ‘em God Taught Me

Pre Chorus:

When they ask me how I did it I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me how I’m winning I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me why I’m different I say, God Taught Me
This my time to get it
God Taught Me

Chorus:

When they ask me how I did it I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me how I’m winning I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me why I’m different I say, God Taught Me
This my time to get it
God Taught Me

Verse 2:

See me on the way when I walk like this
Sauce like this, I’m a boss I guess
God knows I’m blessed
Go to the bank and I cash that check, guess what’s next
I’ll be the best, don’t get confused
I’m reliable that’s cause I always produce
God chose me so I don’t have to chose
I can live out my dream “must be the shoes”
You don’t wanna offend anybody so you tiptoe
You’re so focused on your balance like you’re a flamingo
Enjoy your day off
I don’t get those, you thought you could slow me down, well I
Don’t think so

Bridge:

Full speed don’t fly straight
If you don’t write your lyrics you’re a lightweight
The truth is out here but it’s hiding
So I make all of this music and they like it
All y’all blowing smoke like it was cannabis
Why are we ignoring what the problem is
This year let’s come together, put a stop to this
Long live the revolution, God with us
God with us
God with us
God with us
God with us

Pre Chorus:

When they ask me how I did it I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me how I’m winning I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me why I’m different I say, God Taught Me
This my time to get it
God Taught Me

Chorus:

When they ask me how I did it I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me how I’m winning I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me why I’m different I say, God Taught Me
This my time to get it
God Taught Me
When they ask me how I did it I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me how I’m winning I say, God Taught Me
When they ask me why I’m different I say, God Taught Me
This my time to get it
God Taught Me
