If you know me, you know I love hip-hop & rap. It started back in the day with dc Talk’s pre-Jesus Freak albums. Then there was John Reuben, Grits, dj Maj and KJ-52. Of those artists, KJ is the one I listen to the most nowadays. Albums like this are why.
Not only does KJ actually have Christ in every song, but he makes you think, laugh and even cry on occasion. Plus, in my opinion which is based on the hip-hop and rap I’ve heard, he’s a very skilled rapper.
My favorite songs on this album are Will You Ever Know, Do Yo Thang, It Ain’t Easy, Fanmail, and Always Here For You among others. That last one because when I first listened to the lyrics was after we found out that Ashley was pregnant with Caleb and the song is from KJ to his then unborn son.
Also, the newer version of it has a link to download “The Missing Pages”, a collection of 13 additional songs and 2 music videos. There’s some great stuff on there, including Starbucks Takes All My Money, Stuck In The 80′s (which he just recently finished shooting a video for) and several remixes. It’s like getting 2 CDs for the price of one!
Ashley got me a The Missing Pages for Christmas this year! Booyah!
