Martyr Music - SNL Mixtape (Free Music, Review) @Martyr_Music @Noisetrade #hiphop #rap #favorite

^^Widget Above^^

For Fans of :     Fred Hammond, Bizzle, Tye Tribbett, Da T.R.U.T.H.

I realized later that I already reviewed this before.. but it seems there are differences.. so.. old review HERE : 

22 Tracks

Overall Thoughts:

Christian.. street style rap.. hip hop.. interesting lyrics.. sometimes, not often, not the best melding of beat and music.. so.. not really very smooth (which is usually what I mean by 'street rap' .. not sure if that is even a term, but .. ehh) 

There are many more awesome tracks then.. 'ok' tracks.. 

The language could be questionable... I did not really hear any outright cursing, but somethings may be too 'mature' for younger ears (really only heard one... 'Erection' .. I have heard this before .. and I get the meaning, but it can easily be seen as vulgar)

I have added this to my favorites

Recording Thoughts:

Pretty Good ... Semi-Professional

Stand Outs:

"Hammer Dance" - some pretty slick lyrics.. I liked a bunch of the point made

"No Church In The Wild" - this has a pretty interesting and catchy beat.. Much of this is pretty hard to get through as it really hits home with some truth of the world that just turns the stomach... The ending ties it all up quite nicely showing the hope in Christ and the fellowship of believers

"Exodus" - kind of a storytelling song.. about those lost and broken.. but as well from the viewpoint of God.. showing His love and desire to save all those mentioned.. Pretty real and gritty here, but the portrayal of God's love and grace is biblical and true

'Rack City" - while this is a beat that can easily get on my nerves.. but I found the lyrics pretty interesting.. and pretty easy to follow 

"Rance" - powerful and passionate message!! 

'The People" - I found this to be one of the most smooth and enjoyable songs on the album.. good message.. a call for salvation.. and pretty well done all the way through

"Na'an One" - very awesome message.. my favorite on the album.. great message.. great sound.. very well mixed.. 

"Covered In It" - clear and good message

"Restoration Song" - AWESOME and strongly biblical!!

"Speechless" - a good blending of dup step to rap.. pretty cool.. and the message truly lifts Christ High... another favorite on the album

"L!FTED" - encouraging and up'lifting' message.. ha!

"Martyr" - pretty loud.. not sure why it is so much louder than the rest.. this does not affect the message really..and it is a pretty encouraging one.. more living for Christ... and that alone.. to understand life it about God.. and everything else is worthless

"John 8:38" - interesting stuff.. pretty real and hard hitting.. more spoken word than rap.. AND it is quite long

take a listen ... get a download.. and TIP!!!
