Trip lee's sophmore try was an astounding win. This is way better all around than his first cd. The production, the raps, and everyting was just better. It starts off with an epic intro which he has a nice little rap to. It goes into arguably the best track "Superstar (eyes off me". he goes hard in this one. He's talking about how he wants this song to let you worship God. He doesn't want the recognition, and he says, "Hey, if you looking for a superstar don't look at me, you got me wrong, I been a sinner all along, Let's look at him and not the songs".
Next comes "Real Vision", another outstanding track which features labelmate Tedashii. This song talks about not listening to what other people say, but take the Bible's word for it. And if you're looking into something make sure it matches with the word. "Inexhaustible is a cathy track, but its not a standout song.
"Who is like him?" is also really good. He repeats on the chorus, "Who is like him? Nobody!" Thats how great God is, nobody compares. "We told em" starts off with a cool guitar, but he goes into a soft but fast rap. "Cling to you" is one of the downfalls of this album. The whole feel of it didn't excite me. Im also not a big fan of Shai linne. He's a great lyrycist and storyteller, but i just don't particularly like his music and style.
The whole second half of the cd is not as good, but don't get wrong it's still really good. It just doesn't quite live up to the first half. The highllights of the second half are: "Who he is (Ft. Lecrae, Cam)" and "True Security". The others are good, but just not as good as those.
I love what Reach Records is doing. Whether its trip, Lecrae, Tedashii or whoever, They've done a fantastic job. I tip my hat to them.
