Nehemiah hails from Germantown, Maryland and brings a solid project testifying to the grace of God bringing him out of life on the streets to bring about a difference in the community for Christ through Bible study, motivational speaking and inspirational rap. The project mixes acappella ("Testimony Freestyle") and rap with a real East Coast flavour. Nehemiah also throws in an instrumental for good measure ("Way Back"). There are some powerful messages as the rapper testifies. The album does have a volume drop from "Testimony Freestyle" compared to the following track "White As Snow" - itself a very powerful track as the rapper takes us through life situations and shows God washing our sins away. The album then gets louder again into the excellent "The Building Block". Varied beats (such as minimalist ones "Kingdom" and the bouncier more south-styled "FIG") compliment Nehemiah's flow.
