Lecrae is another talented artist coming out of the legendary gospel hip-hop Cross Movement camp. One reviewer described this album as good as Ludacris but without the swearing and negative message. But this is so much more than that, as the title track suggests, Lecrae challenging the listener, "After the show, after the set, after the music stops, what's next?" There are several top notch tracks across the project, laden with mainly dirty south beats, rumbling basslines and deft tunes. Case in point is the jump-up "Jesus Muzik" which is a dirty south rider as Lecrae and Trip Lee display lyrical agility as they discuss bumping "Jesus music" in their vehicles. More lyrical fury comes in "Run" with Lecrae demonstrating an absurdly smooth flow, with a ragga-toting hook. A change in direction is "Get Low" over crunk rumbling beats and electric guitar as Lecrae reminds us to get low and humble before God and rep God not self: "I really shouldn't trust myself, cos without God I'm nothing but dust myself." A down-tempo standout track is "Prayin For You" as a man struggles with life's temptations and in his relationship with God, despite God's blessing - Lecrae revealing that "the person I've been praying about is really me." All in all: great music, Christ-filled lyrics and top production.
