Game Changer [edit]
by Eddy Puyol (FKA Rawsrvnt) | Genre: Rap/Urban | Release Date: October 09, 2015

After more than a decade of experience making music under the name Rawsrvnt, Eddy Puyol is ready to share a more intimate side of his life off the stage.

Within the last year he’s gotten married, purchased a home, and become a father – all “game changing” facets that reflect his personal maturity and influence the collection of songs he’s soon to release on the album titled Game Changer.

The Florida native’s new project carries an urban pop sound with a definitive Miami vibe perfect for locker rooms, prayer rooms, and even… the bedroom.

And while some songs may raise eyebrows from his established fan base, they should know that Game Changer is thoughtful, well-balanced album designed to encourage and challenge its listeners to prepare to maximize life’s most important moments.

The idea is that, just like Eddy Puyol stretched himself over the past year, his supporters will be willing do the same. Now that’s a Game Changer!

Game Changer features guest appearances by: Transparent, Lil Raskull, HeeSun Lee, Milliyon, Erica Cumbo, St. Matthew, and Sara Delight*.

Successes and Missteps | Posted October 15, 2015
When I first received Game Changer to review, I was optimistic about hearing the latest from veteran recording artist Rawsrvnt (pronounced "Raw Servant"). I was unaware that he was a Grammy nominated artist, and learning this raised the level of expectations just a little higher.
The album starts extremely strong with tracks like "Fallin' in Love (feat. Milliyon)," "Game Changer (feat. Lil Raskull)" and "Show Me (feat. Hee Sun Lee)." It is a definite party album that you can put in the family wagon and ride to. The beats are strong, and the lyrics are uplifting. Things slow down a little with "My Music," and then things slide into an island vibe with "Won't Stop (feat. St. Matthew)." 

You may be reading this now and wondering why I rated it at 2.5. The problem begins at track seven, "Light Up The Night (feat. Erica Cumbo)." Rawsrvnt describes the song as a "fun, danceable track designed to be a love letter to his bride, but he also desires for it to stretch listeners' ideas about how this type of content can be presented." In short, it is a slow jam for Christians. Rawsrvnt continues on about the track, "Instead of cheapening the value of an expression of love that was designed by God (like we hear in so many mainstream songs), I pray that people latch onto the way 'Light Up the Night' can glorify Him and stoke the fires of passion in their marriages."

This is all well and good, until he does a reboot of Robin Thicke's "Lost Without U." It is somewhat confusing that he condemns the cheapening of love that was designed by God in so many mainstream songs, and then follows that with a track with lyrics like "Baby you're the perfect shape / Baby you're the perfect weight / Treat me like my Birthday / I want it this way / I want it that way / I want it / Tell me you don't want me to stop / Tell me it would break your heart / But you love me and all my dirty." It left me disappointed and confused, and immediately dropped the album to the 2.5 star rating that I gave it.

Closing Thoughts:
It is hard to give what could have been a good album such a bad score, however, I could not gloss over Rawsrvnt's choice to cover a Robin Thicke song. I feel like it sets Christian hip hop back a step. I have no problem with artists getting real about issues, however, cheapening the union of man and wife to this level is unacceptable to me on too many levels, especially with the graphic sexual nature of the lyrics. I appreciate the positive impact that Rawsrvnt has had through his ministry over the years, however, this was a large misstep.
