|Uncle Reece: Until I Pass Out (Single) | Posted July 19, 2012
Uncle Reece is the first artist of the new Christian hip hop label, Phanarrow Music. The label was created by Jay Harris, the creator of Strght & Nrrw Clothing, and Uncle Reece (Maurice Hicks), the creator of Without Jesus I Suck. Phanarow comes from the Greek word which means "to make aware" or "to make visible," so I can only assume that the purpose of the label is to make people aware of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. "Until I Pass Out" is the first single form Uncle Reece's upcoming album, which he is currently working on recording. (You can help him out with this process on Indiegogo.) I would describe Reece's style as reggae hip hop; there is no rapping on the song, it is just him singing and worshiping Christ throughout the song. I was a little skeptical about the song when I heard the first minute or so, but after listening through the whole thing, I fell in love with it. His reggae style of music was not something I was too into, but everything about the song screams of musical greatness. The song is all about worshiping Christ in all we do and worshiping Him until we pass out. If I could use one word to describe this song, it would be passion. You can hear the passion in his voice and it is truly a great worship experience listening to "Until I Pass Out." I am super excited to hear a whole album from him, and am almost as excited to hear his album as I am to hear Lecrae's upcoming album Gravity. If you want to check out Uncle Reece's music video for this song, you can check that out on YouTube. Once you do that, I have a feeling you are going to want to buy the song on iTunes - it is that good!
