Not a debut album but if he's recorded for the N-soul subsidiary rap label. His previous album caused a few ripples but with this one there has to be a tidal wave of approval because the production stakes have been upped and he's sounding good. Hip hop from Fros't sees a blend of hard hitting edgy rapping combining with some soulful vocalising to give this an interesting feel. Style wise it's neither west coast nor east coast but something that should appeal across the board. Lyrically, this is not coded stuff as he's straight ahead with the fact he loves God and his faith permeates the rhymes. Here and there it reminds me of the Gospel Gangstaz who are featured on the single taken from the set, "If You Really Want It" which sees the vocal duties spread amongst all the participants to strong effect. One standout is the title cut, which sets the scene and reflects the spiritual maturity of a hip hop minister who is not going to be a flash in the pan. "Souljah" is also a testimony, describing a poignant moment in the journey that has acted as a springboard for his life and ministry. A PK, it's clear that Fros't has all the credentials to use the genre to reach his generation.
