Jared Wells from Orlando, Florida, better known as Deraj, clearly has a refreshing attitude about his rapping art and doesn't indulge in bragging about his abilities to which even some Christian rappers succumb. To this six-track project Deraj brings a very expressive flow, as evidenced on "Runaway". Some melodies (for instance, "What You Say") could be stronger but on the plus side the chilled out beat on "Forgiveness" is very tasty and with a piano hook, it perfectly complements the message of forgiveness and letting go to God. Other standouts are "No Fear" featuring the vocals of Ginelle Yvonne and "Solitaire" which depicts Satan appearing as an angel of light and warns us of the seriousness of playing with sin.
