You don't have to love what you do, to do it with love. Brother Lawrence author of practicing the presence of God said, "God regards not the greatness of our work but the love it is done with." So what is there to love? If what we do provides for people it is never an insignificant thing. The means by which God provides for His world is through the labor of His people. To do everything unto him is to work like our lives are not ours but His. He see's what we do and cares how we do it therefore we give our best. It when we give "100″ God is honored and this world impacted. That's what my new EP is all about! I pray that the music will inspire and ignite a passion in the listener to go all out for God in a way they never have before!

Going all out in this Christ walk is the theme of KBís new album.| Posted March 04, 2014
Reach Records has been on the grind in a serious manner. Lecrae dropped Church Clothes 2 in November. Andy Mineo just dropped the Never Land EP while Tedashii is gearing up for his late Spring release. KB is back to bring us his EP, 100. He has partnered with YouVersion and Overflow.com to present a 21-day devotional to coincide with this new release.
A devotion, amidst the splattering talk that the guys on Reach Records are "selling out" or watering down their message? NOOOO! On the video explaining the devotional and album, KB exclaims, "I want to see a generation of folks to get behind God's call to us to give our everything in everything."
Producers on the EP include: In house producers Gawvi and Joseph Prielozny along with Dirty Rice, Tyshane (son of Papa San and only 17-years old), Ace and GRoc.
He comes out of the gate with "Give It My All" proclaiming "If you forget my name, please remember my Jesus." Dirty Rice and Prielozny provides some multi-layered production with some keyboards, vocoder, a hint of trap music and a smidgen of dubstep. The title track almost forces you to nod your head as KB brings so much passion to his delivery. Then his partner in ministry and rapid fire spitting, Andy Mineo, brings more heat to push us over the edge. This one is sure to be a fan favorite at concerts.
Taking risks, facing fears and going all out basically explains "Kamikaze" and goes well in KB's theme of doing things at a 100%. Dirty Rice and Prielozny hooked up again to handle production and they give the mainstream sound accented by newcomer Prisca's vocals. KB exposes some of his own fears and apprehensions on "Doubts" which will do nothing but encourage those who look up to him. It is like he lets us in to intimate conversations that he has with God and with those closest to him. The cool thing about the song is that it has an almost David like presentation because KB goes from talking about his doubts to realizing that those doubts makes him more reliant on God.
Production on this EP is definitely on point. At first listen, I almost dismissed it as, "sounding like any other Reach Release," but I was wrong. There are some points in the album where the production is a little to0 reminiscent of past releases. Then I listen to songs like "Crazy." Listen as Tyshane and Prielozny turn this song from Trap/Hip Hop to Reggae to back to Trap to Reggae again. "Strings" are melded throughout. KB talks about wallowing in self pity and dealing with doubt.
The concept of keeping things "100" and going all out works well for this EP. I would have rather KB release a full-length album. However, the theme, the transparency and the production helps prove the point that "big things come in little packages."

How can I not comment on this album, my sister-in-law was looking for me desperately to give me this album. Now I know why because am loving it. especially Kamikaze and 100 the title track. This album is amazing and talks about the reasons why we should worship the Lord Almighty.
