"God's Servant" was born Brian Davis in Detroit, and now resides in Philadelphia. Lamp Mode Recordings here release the emcee's second studio album, and includes his four singles "Areopagus", "Make Way", "Bring The Diadem", and "Holy." 'Diadem' also features special guests Benjah, Chris Cobbins, J Williams, and label mate Json. Speaking about 'Diadem' God's Servant said "In this day and age we're fighting for freedoms to not make albums saturated with the words of Christ. I wanted to do the opposite and make a CD with the worthiness of Christ". The messages here are deep and there is an impressive blend of good theology and inventive production. Three particular standouts are "Make Way" which has a flavour of dubstep with an uplifting hip hop instrumental backing tracks and, "For Us" with an inspiring modernised R&B beat and smooth backing vocals on the chorus which features singer J Williams and which has verbal flows from God's Servant which sweep the listener along like a gust of wind. Finally "At His Feet "has a crunk-style beat with intense pattern schemes and flows. All in all, a fine, spiritually-focused hip-hop worship album.
