Rewind 67: P.I.D. original member, Fred Lynch, tells the rest of the P.I.D. story and talks about some of his favorite rhymes.

In Frontline Records Rewind Episode 67, host Les Carlsen continues his conversation with Fred Lynch, founding member of P.I.D. (Preachers In Disguise) and Preachas. In Part 2, Fred talks about how he learned the scriptures and demonstrates a fresh way created for memorizing the Word by paraphrasing it into rap verse. Fred provides background story for songs recorded on Frontline Records releases, The Chosen Ones and Born With A Gift. Listeners learn about some innovative recording techniques originated by P.I.D. and other pioneer artists, like a compilation of loops by various rappers on “Holy Roland Patches” and abstract structure on “Abstruction”. It was popular for artists to borrow or “bite” loops from other hip-hop artists. Fred reveals one time when they got busted in a magazine review for doing it. In closing, Fred talks about his desire to mentor and train young MCs and rappers to use “flow” as a discipleship medium. He gives listeners a taste of “The Script”, his scripture translation of I John into verse-by -verse rhyme. Fred also travels to public schools with the organization, Rachel’s Challenge, and speaks with students about a life of compassion and kindness. Listeners will enjoy getting to know this man with a big smile and even bigger heart. View clips at

Hey. Just discovered your podcast, and have been listening through them whenever I can. It has been so cool to hear some of this music again, rediscover some bands I forgot about, and hear some stories about some artists I had never heard before. I already plan to re-buy Weapons Of Our Warfare. Holy Smokes, what an incredible album! A very heartfelt thank you to all of you at Frontline records. I am 44 years old, and I still crank up all of your old albums that I have managed to re-buy on CD, or re-buy digitally. Thank you so much for all you did back in the day, and everything you are doing now with these podcasts. Awesome awesome awesome!!! Keep it up.

– Phil
