Birmingham's Sammy G and Jimmy James come together to produce a pure and heady mix of Godly UK grime, bassline and British hip-hop. The title track leads the way as Sammy G hypes a live show with a freestyle and enters into the explosive "Slang" that had me turning up the CD player. Sammy takes a clear stand for God and calls out foolishness from other rappers. Other similar jump-up tracks include the bass heavy "Find Me" with a quick-witted edge. The album is full of more humour like the laid back flow of "Jack Jones" - and feels like it was a fun project to record. We are served with guest portions of grime, with guests like Jahaziel ("Rate Ya" and "One Weapon") and JB ("Beautiful Girl"). Sammy G brings a few acapella numbers ("Change") that showcase his creative flows. Musical changes come with the smooth, soulful down-tempo "Pure Silence" with Monique and the more traditional hip-hop roller of "Its" featuring Candice. Jimmy James showcases more of his varied production skills with the bassline "Morse Code". In "Beautiful Girl" we have another humorous but honest track with Sammy G not "fitting the category" of a Godly match for women. We end with a hidden track, "Plain And Simple" where Sammy G explains serving God is a privilege and he puts all his trust in God.
