Has it really been 16 years or so since Noel and Robbie first emerged as guest emcees on that JC & The Boys album? The twins deserve deep respect for their services to holy hip-hop. Yet here they show themselves to be far more than old skool rappers going through the motions one more time for a new generation of hip-hop fans. This comeback album bristles with creative production and spiritual militancy which makes many of the current crop of gospel rappers seem vapid by comparison. The theme of the album is Acts 20:24 and with some fiery cuts like "Unbelievable" and "I'm Still Here" you find two talents utterly on their game as they mix up both East Coast (they were born and raised in the Bronx) and West Coast (they now live in California) styles. With the same Scripture-filled approach as shown by the beloved Cross Movement, these guys are DETERMINED to finish the race.
