I first came across the legendary Pettidee at Crossover Church's annual Flavor Fest event. Pettidee absolutely smashed the place up with his energy, life and assertive crunk style rap and delivery. Now he's back with another project, reminding us that we are aliens in this world and that "I do not belong down here. . . I'm an alien" aligned with a passion to be all in for Christ. The same pulsating dirty south basslines are evident and Pettidee's plain raw passion is tangible and heartfelt throughout the eight-track album. There are some guests adding in to the project with a standout being some pulsating ragga from Monty G and K.O.K on "Lethal". We close out with the brilliant worship song "Hands In The Air" with a tiny hint of the classic riff from "Careless Whisper" - thanking God for loving us despite our unworthiness, singing "I don't want to live without your presence." Pettidee is unique in the Christian rap scene and this proves he's still on top of his game.
