This duo from the Cross Movement bunch of militant rappers mean business and won't take any prisoners. The lyrics are Christ focused, hard hitting and to the point. They are NOT politically correct. The words will challenge you! There are some good ideas on this CD and some well produced music backing the rapping. One of the tracks has a rock theme to it, another later on has more of a soul feel to it. There are the occasional female backing vocals. However, towards the end there were a couple of tracks which I sense lacked creativity. The loops seemed to be repetitive and the originality seemed to have run out of steam. Having said that, there are 19 tracks on this 71-minute album. You're certainly getting your money's worth. This duo will challenge you to believe in Jesus Christ, and if you already do, they'll be on your back telling you to preach the Gospel!

Everyday Process is on a mission to use hip hop to impact people who normally wouldn’t set foot in a 'spiritual' setting like the church with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Hailing from Pennsylvania, group members Mac the Doulos and Iz-Real deliver a no-compromise message using hip hop’s magnetism to spread the truth to Christians and non-Christians influenced by or engulfed in the hip hop culture. Everyday Process advocate not a retreat from that culture but rather that Christ is relevant to hip hop and desires to reconcile hearts and lives with His own.
Strongly influenced by The Cross Movement, Everyday Process’s debut album describes their unique approach to communicating the gospel to the hip hop generation... giving the listener an inside look at the Christian’s everyday process of illumination and elimination.
The Process of Illumination: Everyday Process sheds light on God’s grand puzzle – who He is, His holiness and the problem that sinful humans face in light of it, and finally God’s solution to this problem. Everyday Process illuminate the way to new life in Christ and exhort believers to embrace their commission and duty in Him.
The Process Of Elimination: The listener is led along a hip-hop infused path to the conclusion that in the light of John 14:6 all other religions, faiths, philosophies and ideologies are eliminated and considered null, void and false. Christ boldly declares Himself the only way to a right relationship with God and proclaims Himself the way, the truth and the life, further declaring that no one can come to the Father except through him.
Everyday Process bring the truth front and centre for the listener to make the individual decision to choose Christ and begin the everyday process of sanctification, eliminating sin from one’s life, growing closer to Christ and daily becoming more like Him.
