CJ Solomon was raised in Vallejo, California, a town known mostly for its gang culture and drug dealing. He came from a church background but strayed away into a bad lifestyle but while in prison he began to study the Bible and came to Christ. Now, as CJ Emulous, he releases his second album. "Unconditional" featuring Zee has the rapper expressing the love of God over a modernised trap beat ("Call me what you want/As long as you call me the son of God") while "Get Active" has an old school clapping beat which switches to trap half way through. "What It Feels Like" is a soft mellow groove on which CJ shows he's representing Jesus Christ ("Live, for him I'm for him/Hope you know it's shotgun when I ride for him"). This is an excellent album which speaks of powerful transformation.
