Delivering darts to shake the enemy is London and South East rapper, Tunday with his new project. As the UK scene grows from strength to strength, artists like Tunday are making tunes that demand notice, combining lyrical insight and contemporary references and shouts out. There's no doubt who Tunday is representing, ". . .so wrapped up in Christ, you can call me a Christian" over a big intro tune. Tunday makes it clear that he is no longer of this world, rejecting the things of this world and living a holy life ("I Need"). There are tracks looking at life on the streets and the ills of society ("Ganster"). Here is an album of poetic depth and answers found in Christ. Musical variance laces the album - the soul-filled "Things I've Seen", the rolling 4/4 beat driven, vocoded "Transformer" and even elements of ragga. Victizzle guests to add to Tunday's excellent grime bouncer "Hey". Track after track exudes Christ, finally ending up with the incredible "Goodbye World" which is as worshipful a rap track as you could find - Tim Hughes and The 29th Chapter eat your heart out!
