This 2010 Funky Praise mixtape features Birmingham's Gap D mixing it with various singers and rappers. With a mix of gospel house, funky house, bassline and rap, there is likely to be at least one track here which will lift you into God's presence. As the album progresses the tempo increases with some dancey numbers (I've even used some of the tracks out DJ-ing). One particular standout is "How I'm Feeling" with Sarah Inez on vocals while the bassline-fuelled "My God" featuring Breaker and "Neva Dat" with Hatman MC are both impactful. Finally the renowned Victizzle guests on his underground hit "Jam Yourself" bringing the project to its finish.
