The rawer, tougher, more streetwise end of hip hop performed by a California due Peacefiveeightysix and Victor 'Toon' Everett. It's gangsta rap without the violence and profanities, a veritable torrent of verbage sometimes carving out sound messages of hope and salvation sometimes verging on the surreal and often spiced with a tongue-in-cheek humour and plenty of sample surprises. An acquired taste but to my ears the most convincing Christian based hip hop team since SFC.

man i remember these brothers from way back when i was afiiliated w/ jesus people usa in chicago in the 90's. the anual cornerstone festival introduced me to this group and alptta others during my youth. i had the same admiration and respect for groups like this just as much as the secular groups, which showed me god has no boundaries. i wish they still made creative,"quality" christian hip hop like this.amen!
p.s. dont forget about-
dynamic twins
j.c. and the boys
12th tribe
cauze 'n' effect

I just had to get this CD again. I have both CDs. I'm listening to the first CD. I just had to download it into my ipod. Where are these brothers...they truly lifted up the name of Jesus Christ. I love BOTH of these CDs!!!

I loved this album growing up in Australia/New Zealand and i wish i had access to their earlier one. It's acid jazz sound and their fantatistic lyrics were brilliant. I wish i knew what happened to these guys, you can't even Wikipedia their story.

There frist album was Caught in a land of time. It had some tight production, it was one of the albums that changed the face of chrsitian hip hop in the sense that it wan't pop. It had some edge... The second album was a nice follow up. Mc Peace and DJ Cartoon did themselves justice on this sophmore album. I loved 2nd coming...
