Everyday Process are Mac The Doulos and LZ-Real and are out of Chester, Pennsylvania (just south of Philly). Their "out-of-space" themed album seeks to continue their passion to bring hip-hop with a difference, to reach people in hip-hop with the Gospel of Jesus and to let their lights shine as Christ's ambassadors in the hip-hop culture that is a way of life for many. Right from take-off ("Invasion") we learn of a world hostile to Christ, yet Everyday Process are on a mission to be different, proclaiming, "the more I get the cold shoulder, the more I get to grow bolder". What shines through the album are genuine sold-out lives for God as displayed on "All Out For God" and "Freak" as they declare themselves Jesus freaks set against a media hostile to Jesus. Theological issues examined include being new creations in Christ ("New") and death ("Bye Bye"). There are east coast nods in the powerfully smooth "Against The Grain" while "Make You Smile" is laced with some old school soul. Through the project we hear some nice flows and rhythmic patterns, as evidenced on "I Don't Belong". Overall, an impressive project.

‘Out of this world’ best describes the second release from one of Christian Hip Hop’s most dynamic duos, Everyday Process.
Mac the doulos and Iz-Real together communicate in their new project 'Outtadisworld' the fact that those called by Christ are sojourners living with different agendas, affections and lifestyle than the world around them.
Everyday Process display via their gritty, East-coast style the uniqueness of the Christian walk which is nothing to be ashamed of, but rather something that Christians should gladly embrace and promote.
This highly-anticipated follow up to their groundbreaking debut project 'Everyday Process: The Process of Illumination and Elimination' is sure to cause the music industry and supporters alike to take notice as Everyday Process delivers the imperative to truly live 'Outtadisworld'.
