'The Building Block 1.5' is a solid effort from the rapper who was born in Germantown, Maryland. The uplifting "Coming Home" features the sweet vocals of Jen. Then comes the emcee spitting some tight lyrics on "Forever Remix" ("I'm craving the blood of Christ like I'm a vampire/So now my spirit's burning in me like a camp fire"). More explosive emceeing comes in the bouncy "Father Son Holy Spirit". Other tracks bring some powerful testimony such as the smooth rolling personal story of God's work in "Look At Me Now", naturally leading into the slow-dance "Romance", an ode to lovers to keep God first. We close out with a prayer as Nehemiah raps that the Spirit would open the ears of those who don't know him.
