Worth the Wait | Posted June 29, 2017

The God Over Money roster is continuing to grow and blossom into a full-on movement. Selah the Corner dropped two mixtapes in the last few years and finally whet everyone's appetite for his new album when he released the single "Highpotenoose." Now Memoirs of a Perfect Life is finally here.

The producers who helped create the 18 track album are Wit, KP, 42 North, Tone Jonez and Soundnami. Selah created a documentary to highlight the process of making the album and to give insight into his name and mission. In saying "I am the Corner," he emphasized that he would be "that thing that redirects you assertively towards God." That statement is for anyone regardless of his or her profession. 

Selah's mom is featured, talking about how even from birth how he physically stood out as a child, and that was a foreshadowing of the fact that he would always be different. This serves as an intro to "Intro Vert." One thing that Selah has established is his ability to incorporate clever punchlines over a variety of beats while staying true to that NYC hip-hop that influenced him. "Masquerade" has Selah explaining why he can only be "100" in a world that needs hope and nothing fake. 

On "Sticc and Moov," Eshon Burgundy features and spazzes over the subtle snare and toms with a heavy kick. So many differences are addressed with Jered Sanders on "Same Bird." The issue of church unity (or the lack thereof) among predominately black and predominantly white churches is addressed while both rappers smoothly flow over the Wit and 42 North backpacking beat. Brotherhood and fighting together is the theme, and it continues on "Cliché." Selah and Bizzle address the critics and the themes saturating mainstream rap. They pull no punches, even critiquing artists that rap about acts that they clearly do not commit. 

I almost spazzed on "Anthemic," which is obviously the goal. Wit provides the soundtrack to the head-nodding while Selah creates an anthem to speak to societal ills.

The Bottom Line: Memoirs of a Perfect Life is a winner, another album for GOM to use to impact a culture that needs hope. We waited for a long time for a full length album by Selah the Corner, and thankfully, he delivered!
