What You Need to Know
5ive continues his grind with his latest offering Me Against The World, Vol. 2. This new album from the veteran artist furthers the gospel message to the lost world around us all while encouraging Christians to be strengthened in their faith.
What it Sounds Like
Me Against The World, Vol. 2 is an old school hip-hop album. No trap here. Just smooth east coast rap reminiscent of a simpler time. The project also includes smooth R&B vibes in "#MatW2 (feat. Victorious & Jordan Lucio)" and a nice gospel choir in "#StillWorship (feat. GHC Choir)." 
Spiritual/Lyrical Highlights
Each song is filled with a focus on God's power to help us overcome whatever we may be facing. In "#DestinedForMuch (feat. Illuminate, Jordan Lucio & Omar)" the verses focus on the greatness in each of us thanks to the saving grace of Christ. On "#DontMissYou (feat. Dru Bex & Korbvn)" the lyrics speak to how the power of Christ helps us overcome sin in our lives. The thing we don't miss in this glorified life is sin.
Best Song on the Record
There is something about a feature from J. Carter that just makes me groove a little more. On "#iNeedYouMore (feat. J. Carter)," 5ive's bars mixed with J. Carter's lyrics, all combined with an honest prayer asking for more of God, gives the listener a hip-hop song that can easily become a worship song

Final Word
In a time when the culture is delivering turn up tracks and fun party tracks, Me Against The World, Vol. 2 puts the C back into CHH.
