This seven track free mixtape from a North Carolina emcee takes us on a rap journey, a musical and spiritual voyage which deals with the end of this world through to the end of the world in us (dying to self, alive to Christ). From the anthemic "Intro" and the preacher speaking for us to lift up our eyes and affections to God and stop being infected with this world, this sees the Gospel communicated in a very real and raw, non-preachy way. "End Of The World" sees Crucial roll lyrics smoothly while the fight against our sinful natures is examined on "The Old Man". The pulsating bassline-edged "Star Fantasy" takes a look at the blight of celebratory status while the album ends with the deeply powerful "Say Goodbye" (to this world). A mixtape with some serious theological content.
