Honest 2 God [edit]
by Alex Faith | Genre: Rap/Urban | Release Date: August 21, 2012
 

On the heels of a “great performance” at the 2012 Legacy Conference, and after featuring on projects like Sho Baraka’s Barakaology and, more recently, Swoope’s critically acclaimed album Wake Up, Alex Faith will release his debut album Honest 2 God, available for free download on August 21, 2012.

Honest 2 God represents Alex Faith’s courage to live honestly before God and people. “It’s really me just being honest, writing songs about how I feel about things,” he explains. “I am convinced that the courage to be yourself often happens when you see someone else doing the same. Honest 2 God is my approach of doing just that. I’m writing music for people who can identify with my experiences, and even appreciate them.”

In June, Alex released his single, “Runways” with a feature from High Society’s Suzy Rock. The transparent and truthful lyrics on the track moved fans and critics alike as Alex laid out his honest expression. Rapzilla’s Steven Patton called it “DOPENESS!” while DJ Wade-O of the Wade-O Radio Show praised the song saying, “I want to applaud [Alex] for putting that on the record.” Honest 2 God comes highly anticipated with 14 tracks featuring artists such as Jamm from Hello Revolution, High Society’s Suzy Rock, Fish Scales of the Nappy Roots, Sho Baraka, Dre Murray, Christon Gray, and Derek Minor (fka PRo) among others. The forthcoming album features acclaimed production from Wit, D-Flow, Wes Pendleton and Street Symphony, many of whom were responsible for the exceptional quality produced on Lecrae’s widely popular mix tape Church Clothes.

Top 5 Free Mixtapes of 2012 | Posted November 22, 2013

People say you get what you pay for... That isn't true in this case. I feel this FREE Mixtape/Album was worth paying for. Go Download here: http://rapzilla.com/rz/music/freemp3s/4922-alex-faith-honest-2-god

Alex Faith's Honest 2 God Mixtape is just as stated... Honest. He speaks honestly about his life, struggles, sin, and temptation. "Can't Fake It" He, Dre Murray, and Derek Minor speak directly to that. We "Can't Fake It" when Christ changes us. The song also includes an well placed sample. The previous song "Have It All" is a remix of the Adele track beat with a declaration of raps over top.

"Honest 2 God" includes some big names and features... more than you would expect from a free mixtape. He includes his W.L.A.K. crew Swoope, Christon Gray, and Dre Murray, also Suzy Rock and Sho Baraka on a "Runaways" Remix, a song that put him on the map just months earlier. Social Club and one of its members Martymar are featured on 2 tracks. Alex didnt skimp on production credits also including... Wit, Street Symphony, D-Flow, Wes Pendleton and More. He also includes Instrumentals for 3 of the tracks, When I was younger I loved when they included Instrumentals so my friends and I could freestyle on them.

"Video Games" was another track that was released earlier and helped get some hype for the mixtape, although not my favorite track. I really enjoy "Dreams" feat. Social Club, this track includes a sample and the hook is pulled from a song by "The Game" Social Club is one of my favorite new Christian Rap groups and they kill it on this track.

The Honestly continues on "Remember the Rain" Alex speaks from the heart about the pain of losing a child and the rainy times. He calls it a "Blood Stained Memory" and speaks honestly about being mad at God and having to really trust in God's plans.

"M for Murder" (feat. Martymar of Social Club & Dre Murray) "I dial M for Murder" the hook says, they speak to murdering the flesh or murdering our plans and trusting in God's plans. "We do the work of Lord and we murder Pride" Alex finishes his verse.

The Title Track "Honest 2 God" is one of the most honest tracks on the album. "I ain't gonna lie..." is how each verse starts. He speaks about wanting to have, Money, Cars, and Stuff... but he is happy with what God provides. Christon Gray kills the vocals on the chorus and also the second verse, his ability to sing R&B and Rap makes him a great feature on any song or album.

Over all this is a well-balanced record. If you want to call it a Mixtape or an Album, it doesn’t change how great it is. Every track has its value and place on the record. This is definitely in my Top 5 Free Mixtapes of 2012, maybe closer to Top 3. If it weren’t for Lecrae - Church Clothes and MC Jin - Crazy Love and Ridicules Faith, coming out the same year it would be #1.
