RH is an upcoming artist hailing from Topeka, Kansas seeking to minister and example the Kingdom of God through rap, his testimony and work across the community. Having been saved from a life of drug abuse by God, he seeks to lift the name of Jesus higher as in "I Present Christ" revealing to all that he is "the way, the truth, the life." We kick things off with a testimony to God, "Wow". RH explains he was, "I was lost and now I'm found. . . nothing but the blood of Jesus, wow!" The album is full of testimony and declaration to God, filled with Scripture as on tracks like "No Fear" and the pulsating and sub-bass driven "He's Good". It's not just a southern style project. "I Need You" takes things down a touch as things get all smooth, "Lord, I really, really need you. . . I need your help." This contrasts nicely with the more funky and grooving, albeit short, "Think It Over" while there's a nice little gospel choir parody in "Offering Time Interlude". Nothing really groundbreaking here but still effective for all that.
