Still the man with the madd skillz, still Christendom's all conquering hero who can bring the street savvy of seriously dope joints to Christian radio yet still undercut his tracks with radio friendly hooks. The cuts "Tha Rally", "Can I Live" (though some don't care for its chipmunk chorus) and "I've Been Looking Around" have already made it onto the Cross Rhythms radio playlist while "12 Years Ago" with its sung R&B chorus, the angry "Hard Streets" or the stunning "Shake Ya Body" with T-Bone rapping faster than anyone else on the whole hip-hop scene (Christian or non-Christian) are equally attention grabbing.
