Washington, DC-based rapper maCmoses delivers a solid hip-hop CD. Lyrically, maCmoses is clear without being overly complex and has a simple old skool feel. This vibe is reflected on the beats, which mostly have a bassy, rolling and pulsating vibe across the album. The rapper gives testimony to God being there when you're going through things in "The Rulez" and "Endure". He encourages us to keep going and that we are valuable to God in "God Is Your Help", pointing us to help others and not just focus on self. "Being Led" brings the main variation on the album - a slower track with maCmoses singing on the hook. "Accept His Truth" sees maCmoses rolling with a syncopated, almost military roller as he trusts in God and his Word. He has come through a lot in the last four years and his testimony on his website is humbling as he reveals that this experience has drawn him closer to God and to his family.
