At first play I wasn't too impressed, it sounded like a perfunctory rap album that presumably every black gospel company feels they need to release to stay "in touch with youth". But there's definitely some tasty moments. The vocalists who fill out the hooks in between these reasonably competent Indianapolis rappers are pretty hot, the sax work outstanding and at least two cuts standout. These are the fairly dance-worthy "Hypocrites" and the concept rap "Jesus Came In" (the latter being an audio soap opera which is a veritable 'how to witness on the telephone to your street wise friends' tour-de-force). Didn't care for the sentiments expressed on "You Can Make It" (with programming and keyboards by that gospel doyen John P. Kee) which teetered perilously close to prosperity gospel. But as a first gospel-rap set this is OK.
