Chicago-born, Atlanta-based rapper Canon offering a seven-track project plus a bonus track and an extended mix of "Motivation". If you don't know Canon, he has a fast-paced flow while bringing and using guests for some seriously smooth vocals and musicality - as in "Dreams" featuring legends Tony Tillman and JC. As you'd expect on a lead track, Canon absolutely tears it up on "Go Off" with fast and furious flows. Like his mentor, Lecrae, Canon isn't afraid to step outside of the boundaries of "Christian" rap in order to bring understanding and connection between the two cultures - the banging fire-fuelled "Put Me On" featuring Reconcile and Derek Minor. The powerful bonus track "Reach Into The Night" tells us how God made us from dirt and clay, "then came the Son/Gave us a brighter day." This track is a monster, both musically and spiritually and confirms Canon as a special talent.
