Sicily is a female rapper from Brooklyn, New York City who was part of the (then) record-holding team for the longest freestyle session recorded in 2014 - along with KJ-52 and other rappers who recorded at Tampa's hip-hop church, Crossover Church. While Sicily pulls no punches in her delivery and message, it is not aggression being communicated but an all-out passion for God and people. The inspiration for Sicily's EP was the first 18 verses of the book of James, standing strong and "remaining faithful" through hard times. Standout track "Fighter" features the vocals of V.Rose and declares that with God we can still be standing at the end of the last round. Through the project we repeatedly learn that God "is enough." Another standout track is "More" where Sicily and KJ-52 bounce off each other with supreme ease as she aims to show people more (in God) while relating to their struggles - "See I was there before/I think I've seen it all/No longer caught in a net like a basketball."
