Foisting your mixtape on people just trying to go about their day is at best annoying, at worst completely ineffective. But it does work once in awhile. Especially if your cover art features an older lady with a cunning look in her eye, the Good Book in her hand, the header "House of Judah presents," the artist name Lyrical Lively and the album title Uh Huh.
All Lyrical Lively had to do was hit Twitter user Keith_The_God with her CD at a gas station. The gospel has spread, in the form of "What Does the Word Say" and Keith's 2016-appropriate ad-libs (including "Guwop!"):
She gave me her CD at gas station. She 74 rapping for Jesus. pic.twitter.com/65IpcWS3rw— Keith. (@Keith_The_God) July 27, 2016
The Telegraph reports that Lyrical Lively is Bobbie Lively, a 74-year-old from Arkansas. And she's pumped she's gone viral:
I just texted her and told her she went viral on Twitter. She's so excited. 😄 pic.twitter.com/QbcsH2U6K7— Keith. (@Keith_The_God) July 27, 2016
