London bwoy Guvna B has put together an outstanding mix of UK hip-hop, grime and even skirting around the world of bassline. "Allo Mate" is the lead track with a bouncy challenge from Guvna B and kids on the hook telling us that we need to accept Christ and need him in our life. Watch out - you may just find yourself walking round saying, "Allo Mate"! Showcasing the diverse mix throughout, "The Narrow Road" kicks in a funky bassline house beat with a grime flow and panned vocal hook as we journey along Christ's narrow path. "Kingdom Skank" follows this mix with a pulsating and addictive bassline tune as we dance for the Kingdom as Guvna B flows. UK hip-hop rolls throughout, with Guvna B comparing his own modern day mission to lead people to Christ, to Moses' leading the people of Israel. If you're looking for a slower blend, try the outstanding tracks "I Need You" looking up to God and the challenge to put the weapons down in "Put It Down". The tracks "What I'm Looking For", "New Jerusalem" and "This Is For The Fans" follow a similar vibe as Guvna B gives it up for God - "If you ask for a picture/I'd rather give you a Scripture." Grime excerpts include "Pray As You Go" and "Standard" as the rapper commits to living up to God's standards. What's gwarnin? Guvna B. Believe.
