Ladies and gentleman, roll up, roll up and get on board an hour long roller coaster ride that is most definitely not for the faint hearted. Stay well clear if your bag is Amy Grant or Steve Camp and if Don Francisco is your listening pleasure then lock all the doors and hide in the cellar because the Twins are here and are taking no prisoners. There's some­thing about Christian rap that always puts a big smile on my face - I think it's because of the power and the passion in the rhymes - music that comes from the sheet, deals with the problems of the street, and gives Jesus as the answer for the street. The Twins have quite a track record, having made appear­ances on albums from fellow West Coasters JC And The Boyz, Chuckie P and SFC. Word 2 The Wize is something akin to a cudgel in the face with little respite. "Back Biter", "The Judge" and "Mission" all are tracks reminis­cent in style of Public Enemy and the like and listening to the CD all the way through left me bruised, battered but totally fired up by the end. Not an easy album to listen to but a definite recommendation for all Jesus Posse members everywhere.

My friend Joel Roberts and I did their song Here Comes The Judge at the SC Fine Arts Fest. and we won first place and we was also the first ones to ever do something like that it was really awsome!!! God is really someone to be proud of and I am glad I had the chance to do something that good for him!!!!!! It is something I will never forget!!!!
