Our job is to promote the good the bad and yes sometimes the ugly. This one falls under the ugly. We found out information before the news broke but now that the parties involved are publicly reporting it, we’ve decided to keep you informed with what’s really going on.
Another Gospel artist has fallen into temptation, reportedly taking a sabbatical from all ministry activity until his situation can be reconciled. The artist I’m speaking of is Da’ TRUTH. A Stellar Award winning Gospel hip-hop artist. Sources tell Path that Da’ Truth has had an affair with Gospel Star Tye Tribbett’s wife. To make matters worse, sources close to the incident report that Tye Tribbett has also stepped out on his marriage to have a relationship with a Soprano in his choir. Da’ Truth (who is also married) has posted a message about his involvement in this web of deceit on his website www.datruth.net. I’m not going to put the whole message up, but Da Truth said one thing about his shortcomings that’s important for us all to remember.
"I ask for forgiveness as I work towards reconciliation. My greatest hope is that my failures and shortcomings are seen for what they are – MY failings and not a reflection of the God I proclaim. Despite my falling short, the resurrection and life changing power of the cross remains the same."
We should all keep these brothers, their wives and family in prayer. We all fall short, but the Gospel artists involved must realize that they are held to higher standards. We pray this situation will bring them even closer to Christ, as we all can learn from our mistakes and the mistakes others.
UPDATE: Da TRUTH’s Record Label Suspends Him
In a separate development Da’T.R.U.T.H.’s record company Cross Movement Records have announced "the suspension of the promotion and forwarding of the artist, minister and ministry of Da’ T.R.U.T.H. aka Emanuel Lambert Jr, due to recent findings of moral failure in his marriage." So far neither Tye Tribbett nor his record company Integrity Music have made a public statement about the revelations.
