Reviewed by Steve Hayes

I once read an article on a hip-hop website relating underground hip-hop and country music and pointing out some similarities. Strange but true as country music isn't something I'd naturally associate with hip-hop. Then I hear Whosoever South who mix country music with southern rap and do it well, as all Cross Rhythms listeners will know, having heard tracks from their 'Goin' Home' album. The three Georgia natives - Rowdy, Sarah and Mike - manage to seamlessly mix country/old timey with southern breaks. "Come On In" with its bouncy banjo and 808 kicks gives the album an uplifting and rolling start as Whosoever South welcome you with southern hospitality and reveal how they're ". walking by faith with a song and a prayer." Not afraid to mix things up, "Crying Out" contains powerful stories of God's grace and love to those crying out to him. "War Going On" mixes in more of a soulful edge as the group confront us with the reality of the war going on in our streets but of God's hand reaching out. But the main spirit of the project is a rolling southern country spiritual vibe. "We all have one thing in common," says Sarah. "We all need Jesus. Some folks just don't know it yet." Possibly not quite as good as 'Goin' Home' but 'Come On In' is already getting airplay on your favourite station.
