With a history in hip-hop where he has honed his skills, Dwayne Tryumf brings a UK sound to the Christian hip-hop world. We are greeted with an epic opener that defiantly speaks God's life and Word into the streets - "I don't pack a 'matic, but I pack a Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, cos the war is on..." Equally challenging is the end-times themed "Matthew 24", laced with Scripture, a booming rolling beat and refined wordplay - "come down my selecta, resurrecter. God-man connector." Tryumf also brings some melodic heat as he connects with the ladies, bringing a contemporary edge on his quest for a Proverbs 31 woman. The Bible is central throughout the project, as evident in tracks like "Right Now", covering a range of Scriptural declarations with tasty end rhyming structures - "We in the last days, many will offend you/But he who endures to the end shall be rescued/He will allow certain things just to test you/When evil abounds he swings it to bless you." We end with a remix of "So Amazing" with a skippy and funky vibe as Tryumf lets rip with some fast lyricism and a catchy hook pointing up to "My God (who's) so amazing." Quality rap art from the UK!
