The testimony of Mynista, aka Docta Wuzdead, out of Tampa, Florida shows demonic forces behind some of secular hip-hop. Mynista reveals how some artists were asked to give their soul to the Devil. Fortunately, Mynista rejected this and found God. Now he raps and ministers for God. He describes his style as a "simplistic, universal message of what's real, marinated in dirty south slang." Lyrically this album contains very easy and accessible rhymes with an easygoing flow and delivery. Musically the album has mostly dirty south beats with rolling hi-hats underpinned by guitar and synth sounds. Well produced album too. Mynista starts up as he means to go on in "Put Ya Fist Up", encouraging people to put their fists up and get their faith up. We then ride through a wide array of topics: giving yourself to God, a headz up to women to walk into God's future for them, a challenge to those who would only love him if he were a thug. In "How Long" Mynista calls out the "thugs and the women" asking, "how long are you gonna run from God." In "I Got High" Mynista looks at life's temporary highs, reminding us only God is eternal. In the words of "Yo Handz" - "bless God, praise God."
