The new music video for rap artist Tedashii’s single “Make War” debuted Wednesday, Nov. 3, on, a ministry of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

“Make War” is from Tedashii’s sophomore release “Identity Crisis,” which debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Album chart.

The song was inspired by a message from pastor and author John Piper, in which he said: “I hear so many Christians murmuring about their imperfections, and their failures and their addiction, and their shortcomings. And, I see so little war!”

“Make War” focuses on the concept of making a concerted effort to fight and defeat the sin in one’s life. The video shows Tedashii in boxing gloves readying himself for the fight.

“My heart, my passion, my desire is that we would have men who would fight sin,” says Tedashii, “and at the end of the day, produce other men like them in discipleship.”
