Real sounds, real message
Posted January 11, 2010
I have to start off by saying that I don't listen to much Rap music, because I don't hear that much that really keeps me interested. That is what is so great about Lecrae's album Rebel. It's so much better than much of what I have heard. I find that the style is pretty solid, current and engaging. The message is dead on, with pinpoint accuracy.
I first heard the "Don't waste your life" while listening to Radio U out of columbus, and I was immediately hooked. The music is so good, but really the words took it over the top.
The whole album is full of positive reinforcement in a world that tries to drag us down. His style is so refreshing. I have his prior album "after the music stops" and it's nothing horrible, but not even close to as good as his new stuff.
I would have scored a full 5 stars but I have to say that it took me a while to get into two of the songs on the album, "Go Hard" and Indwelling Sin". Both had a great message but not the smooth style the rest of the album has. The Start of "Go Hard" is a rough, but it gets much better as the song progresses.
All in all this is an excellent album, and I hope just the beginning of many great albums from a true believer.
