This Nigerian-born, US-based gospel rapper shows conviction not only in his words, but also in self-releasing this album. He is a creditable enough rapper and whilst the production is not awash with big studio sounds, it can work well with Timbaland-type minimalist backed tracks like “Mo 2 Lyf” and “What U Need.” Sometimes the production and musical backing can be perfunctory. However, he usually grabs attention lyrically because of undeniable passion to spread the Gospel. The funk-based “B.I.B.L.E.” and “Change” are good examples. There are some charming female-sung choruses too. Also, SesTor doesn’t shy from announcing his Nigerian roots. For example, the lyrically uplifting “Pages” evokes Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat groove and female chorus. He surprises by flipping the musical backing on “Gravy,” which is driven by a rock guitar lick. Worth discovering.
