Coming out of Atlanta, Georgia, MadeSacred, otherwise known as Steven Williams, starts this 2016 project with a powerful declaration of the Lordship of Christ. The album spans across the hip-hop spectrum - from down-tempo minimalist ("Without You") to furious double-timing southern beasts ("Go Hard") to southern tracks ("Grateful Conqueror") to east coast rolling breaks with more of an old skool flow ("Exstatic" and "Shine On You"). Production is somewhat variable and some of the tracks would have been improved by shortening them. Williams has since morphed his solo hip-hop artistry to include many others, setting up a collective called OnmiGod - musicians dedicated to creating good music. This project is still worth investigating though.
