Gabriel Sharpe, songwriter, rapper and producer from Brooklyn New York was inspired at a young age into music around friends and family. He would later find his true calling in the year of 2008 as he began his journey with the Lord breaking free from the street and drug life. Since the year of 2013 he's been performing throughout NY to Jersey and has been working with other artists. This five-track EP, released in 2015, is one of his projects to use his gifts for God and bring God's message and this he does despite a few shaky vocal moments. G-Sharpe has the ability to utitlise a range of approaches including the Southern-styled opener "Example" with some eyebrow-raising rhymes (eg, "the air through his nostril. to preach the gospel"). Throughout, the vocals of Crys-C help each song soar to a higher place, especially in "Lifeline 2" as she takes the whole track. Production-wise, G-Sharpe rolls out a bassy laid back flow in "Living In This World" as he reminds us that "God sees." As we end out with the smooth "Who Do You Think You Are" with vocals from G-Sharpe (including some fast paced patter) and Crys-C, we hear the heart to be all that God wants him to be and to keep growing. Amen to that!
