3 Reasons: Why You Should Get Gravity Lecrae’s New Album

Lecrae released his sixth album Gravity this week and it is already a huge success, it is a follow-up to the critically acclaimed mixtape Church Clothes.  Here are three reasons for you to get the album.

1. All major critics can’t be wrong and I myself cannot be wrong on this one and quote me :  This is not just the best rap christian album out this year (in terms of production, material and presentation) but it is one of the best hip-hop albums released this year. So even if you are not a christian you are bound to enjoy this album as long as rap music is your thing.

2. The lyrical content is on point and very uplifting, and this is what true rap should be about and I mean that in the sense of the genre, its history and its meaning.

3. Gravity features appearances from Big K.R.I.T.MathaiAshthon Jones, Novel and Mali Music, along with label mates Trip Lee and Tedashii. Producers on the album include DJ KhalilStreet Symphony‘s Heat Academy, and The Watchmen. It even has Tenth Avenue North on one of the bonus tracks. The stellar appearances on this album added all the more spice to it.

GET INSPIRED : 10 WORSHIP SONGS OF THE MOMENT

Welcome to another installment of GET INSPIRED today I want to share with you ten worship numbers of the moment that I love, I virtually listen to these songs every time I set out to worship God. So I want you to join in and worship with me, these songs will help take you to that worship place.

Psalm 95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

We worship God cos we must, God is too great, holy, mighty for us not to humbly bow before him

Psalm 96:9  O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. 

You can worship God anywhere and at anytime as long as you do it earnestly, in spirit and in truth. It don’t need to be only in church or inside you room or house.

John 4:23  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

We tend to worship things of the world making them our idols and all but what and who we should really worship is God.

With You – James Fortune

This song is off James Fortune most recent album Identity, James and Fiyah worship the lord because with Him we find our strength, with Him we are protected cos there is no body greater than God.


Overcome – Jeremy Camp

Pastor, Worship Leader, Songwriter and Lyricist adores Jesus in this song. He lifts Jesus’s name because He never sinned yet He took all our sins, He became sin for us. He saved us all so He is worthy and deserves all the glory because he overcame, He faced the trials of this world yet He overcame for our sake. Great is the name of Jesus. This is such a great worship song.

Oh Our Lord – All Sons and Daughters

This is my favorite song from All Sons and Daughters, reminds me of The Civil Wars (the band). Their voices on this song is perfect and compliments each other, the harmonization is top-notch and all to the glory of God. They lift God’s name in this beautiful song so join in and lift God’s name. “….Oh oh oooo our lord how majestic is your name in all the earth…..”

Slow – Andrey Assad

This song is another lovely soulful piece taken from the critic acclaimed album Heart by Audrey Assad. She just has an amazing voice, song is highly based on faith but non-the-less is a worship song to me.

Rest – Beckah Shae

This one of the best and innovative worship songs i have heard all year, it is not your everyday worship song but it hits home! It is so soothing and smooth. It is about resting in God, just relaxing and letting him take charge. Song shows how great God is and how little our troubles are, all we need do is relax and look up to him. Just like Audrey’s song it is not a straight forward worship song but the serenity of the song and what its message can as well make it a worship song.

Oh Lord Your Beautiful – Brian Johnson

I recently watched a special on Brian Johnson where he did a number of songs in the studio with a bunch of people just there worshiping with him, kind of reminded me f what Aaron Keyes did with In The Living Room. So immediately I downloaded the album titled Love Came Down and the song is just a pure worship acoustic album and I choose this song cos it was the song I first watched when I tuned to the channel to watch his special.

10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) – Matt Redman

This song is taken from Matt Redman’s album of the same name and it is another amazing worship sing-along song. And it has this very cool video where Matt and his band performs the song in an empty cathedral (you all know my love for cathedrals haha). We have a trillion reasons to sing and glorify and worship God’s holy name.

Lamb of God – Tenth Avenue North

The song is taken from the band’s latest album The Struggle which is barely two weeks old since its release, it happens to be the last track but one of my favorite from the album.

Nobody Greater – Vashawn Mitchell

Vashawn has a new album which I am yet to get but this song is from his old album from 2010 and it is a song that my Pastor loved and sang over and over again, but recently I found myself falling in love with this song all over again. The title of the song itself says it all…. NOBODY GREATER. This is Vashawn at his best, perfect  modern-day worship song!

 Cornerstone – Hillsong

I honestly try to keep up with Hillsong’s new releases and albums but sometimes I can’t. This is the latest from Hillsong united and it is called Cornerstone and also from the album of the same name. Most of Hillsong’s album is always a live recorded one, this one right here had me all teary eyed and on my knees in worship. Check it Out.

Hebrews 12:28  Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. (MSG)

ALBUM REVIEW: THE STRUGGLE – TENTH AVENUE NORTH

This week another interesting album was also released this time by the two-time dove award winners TENTH AVENUE NORTH. The band released their third studio album called The Struggle. The album has been in the making since 2011 after their 2010 album “Light Meets the Dark” which charted at #1 on Billboard US Christian albums. So living up to this successful album was something I considered when I heard they band was kind of having this thing that fans got a chance to come and sing and become part of the album creation. Fast forward to the present day THE STRUGGLE is released and during the listening party on their site I was impressed and blown away at the artistic growth of this band and how so much has changed from their lyrical content, to vocal game and production at the same time staying true to their style.

The Struggle has 12 tracks that really fits the title “The Struggle”. I mean all the songs fit to the theme of the album as explained by Mike Donehey the lead vocalist “ In a world that’s still trembling in the wake of the fall, our hearts are desperate for hope. They’re hungry for freedom, they’re longing for redemption. And here’s the good news In Christ, we have all three….”.

The album kicks off with Shadow a nice rock song, followed by the album title track The Struggle which basically lets you in on what the album theme is about; imperfect us struggling about so many things but we know that we have hope of freedom and redemption in the Lord. Worn is one of the most beautiful songs on the album, it is heartfelt and sang with great passion. It is a cry to the Lord to restore and fix the broken and worn out, the piano chords of this song is really special. Losing the track that follows and the first single of the album is about forgiveness of people who offend us and step on our toes. This songs the band got fans to take part in and the bridge and the chorus which follows it is what makes it really outstanding. “They all chorus in singing “Father give me grace t forgive them cos i feel like the one losing”  Another song to look out on the album is Grace another nicely rendered song. The formula of getting fans to sing on the album worked perfectly i say and for sure their fan base will increase with this album.

All in all the band didn’t disappoint in this album, they have proved that they are here to stay and help spread the word of God. It is a good christian pop/rock album and I cant wait to see who wins it to the top of the chart this week.
