Old School Influences Modern| Posted March 17, 2018
KJ-52 is an energetic hip-hop artist who uses his story to reach common ground through an uncommon style. He continues to reach adults and youth alike, spreading the Gospel in an undeniably relatable way. Coming hot off of Jonah Part 1, Jonah Part 2 mixes electronic undertones with strong beats and unique but catchy verses.
What it Sounds Like:
Old school hip-hop beats mix with a modern influence. This album feels like a throwback while also somehow sounding like your favorite new jam. With special guests like Zauntee, Datin and Canon, there's a mix of narrative flavors. Kicking off the album with spoken word on "Intro," the tone for the album is set. "Saw The Light (ft. Sean C. Johnson)" offers some crisp versatility from his usual upbeat, electric rap style. Of course, no KJ album would be complete without mentions of Mountain Dew and Godzilla, so look out for some fun references!
"Intro" offers a peek into the spiritual journey of KJ, which is more than refreshing. "He Won't Fail Me (ft. Zauntee)" is an anthem for any fan, offering a powerful reminder that God will not leave our side. "All I Had (ft. Datin)" explains how Jesus worked to provide for KJ after he put all his trust in Him. "Birthday" sounds like a well-loved classic, explaining how every day is like a birthday because we need to be renewed each day. This is the kind of album that will not only lift up your energy but also your spirit!
Best Song on the Record:
"Saw the Light" feels new and light, a perfect Sunday morning cruise track. "Savage (ft. Canon)" shows off KJ's clever writing in a genius and fun way, featuring nods to Chick-fil-A and PSP's. It's always amazing to see what KJ comes up with next!
Getting new KJ tunes is like waking up on Christmas Day: you never know exactly what you're going to get, but you know it will be good. A creative mastermind, this project shows off his ministry and musical talent. With hand-picked guests that fit perfectly with each track, you won't be disappointed by Jonah Part Two.
