Product Description
‘I was a pretty lazy kid growing up and my Dad would always say to me ‘Son, hands are made for working. It was his way of telling me that nothing comes easy in life, and if I don’t work hard, I won’t get much done or achieve anything worthwhile. He said a lot of things to me, but for some reason, Hands Are Made For Working is the phrase that sticks. Writing this album has been therapeutic for me. I realise how important fatherhood is and how much a father figure can affect the trajectory of a young person’s life. I touch on this from all angles on this record, and I’m more inspired than ever to work hard and put my hands to good use’.

Hands Are Made For Working contains wisdom from lessons learned and reflections on finding hope and faith in difficult times. ‘Everyday’, the first single from the album, speaks about Guvna’s determination to take the rough with the smooth in life and to not give up. The follow up single, ‘Been Hustling’, speaks about Guvna’s journey to discovering what true success means, and ’Dun All The Hype’ featuring Melvillous speaks into the issues of youth violence prevalent in the UK’s capital in
recent times.

With features from the likes of Samm Henshaw and Martin Smith (Delirious?) this album is Guvna B’s most impressive to date with next level production and more vulnerable lyrics than ever. You could call it a coming of age project as you can hear Guvna’s growth and maturity through this offering. It’s an important album for this generation and one that does a great job of honouring his father’s legacy.

Guvna B, at 26 years of age, is a multi-award winning, record-breaking rap artist from London. He became the first rapper in UK history to top the Official Christian & Gospel charts, and his most recent No. 1 release SECRET WORLD was the UK’s highest selling urban Christian album in 2015.

He has worked with highly acclaimed artists such as Matt Redman, Hillsong Music, Destiny Child’s Michelle Williams, LZ7, Nick Brewer, Jocelyn Brown, Keisha
