Rejects [edit]
by Social Club Misfits | Genre: Rap/Urban | Release Date: April 02, 2013
 

"Pretty sure everyone thinks we're going to hell. We must be doing something right the way we keep seeing lives change each show."

With a Facebook post like that, you know that Social|Club isn't your typical Christian rap outfit. The duo of Marty and Fern push the envelope when it comes to people's comfort, but the result is a real, raw, in-your-face treatise on life and faith.

The "Rejects" EP is the follow-up to the highly acclaimed "Misfits."

Looking out for the misfits and rejects of the world | Posted April 10, 2013
Those Social Club misfits are not resting on their laurels. Back with a new EP titled (what else) Rejects, Marty Mar and F.E.R.N. continues with transparency and the hope of Christ.

Things get going with the slow, hard-hitter, "Losing Sleep." It features Marty singing the chorus with a cool rasp that is actually infectious. He sings, "I'm losing sleep on where to go / Where do I belong, I may never know / I feel like I'm far behind / so far behind." He and Fernie address times of regret and just seeking direction. Fernie... this dude's mellow voice grabs your attention! 
 
There has been much tension and discussion around the subject of gay marriages. Enter Social Club and "Grace Song." Marty Mar speaks of truly loving those who are gay and not emphasizing one sin over another. Fernie addresses how God's grace has sustained him and blessed him, even though it was undeserved. He also talks about how he's seen someone delivered from the homosexual lifestyle. Spzrkt sings and brings chill vocals to this breezy tune. Crooner Z.G. seems to be the go-to guy when it comes to rappers who are Christians singing an ode to their wives. He does this on "Love," as Fernie and Marty pay homage to the women they love. 
 
Only Social Club would do a song titled "Pizza Party"--and it bangs. One criticism that I would have for Social Club is that they don't stray often from the slow tempo music with the synths. They bring a more hip-hop banger, "Internal Review," featuring Anthony Rose and Alex Faith. Listen to this over and over again. 
 
It is so good to hear rap veteran R-Swift hook up with the fellas to create "Misfit Gang." This is a rally cry for those who feel rejected by society and even Christian rappers who are rejected by the industry. 
 
Closing Thoughts:
As I have said before, Social Club has music that people can play for youth and adults who feel that they have made too many mistakes to rebound or be used by God. Rejects is another soundtrack in this series of albums. Is a book series next?
