The first thing that catches your eye will undoubtedly be the retro look of the album cover (what does T-Bone look like?) and then maybe it’s probably the album with the longest title – Yes 36 characters in total (sad – I counted!). Anyway we’re here for the music. ‘The Last Street Preacha’, T-Bone’s previous release, was arguably his best work to date, but let’s hear him out on this release. 14 tracks of West Coast flava (with four interludes) that immediately sat pretty comfortably with me. The high profile track is probably the album’s title track featuring KRS1, which although very simple from a production perspective works well with its bass synth rhythm running throughout the track. The album certainly has a retro-hip-hop feel to it, which may in a way make it sound a little dated, but don’t knock it if it works. T-Bone is certainly an extremely articulate rapper, and some of his tracks are great DJ material. The West Coast feel certainly makes it a contender for a good summer album. My final comment would be that I would love to hear more Bible-related tracks, not just with T-Bone but most hip-hop artists.

I enjoy the beat and lyrics because it reminds me of old school days. Keep it up T-Bone God will bless in His own time.
