"I know the culture will / Teach us to be self-absorbed / We ain't supposed to be self absorbed. I know we live in America / In the era of the self-exhorters / Where the music on the shelf's distoted and the wealth is sordid. As sure as the locusts will fly / Everywhere we look the focus is I / But we gotta say bye. Bye why? 'Cause in the Kingdom of God / My plus I gotta die / Takes more than I to survive."
So begins THE FAITH, Da' T.R.U.T.H.'s provocative 21st-century lyrical epistle to the hip hop-influenced Body of Christ. After passionately persuading us to choose Christ with his smash deubt CD Moment of Truth, he now seeks to spark a revolution of consecrated, holy living by igniting and cultivating The Faith of the believers.
In an era where the church desperately emulates the world, prolific writer Da' T.R.U.T.H. exposes the snares of a pluralistic society that have sought to redefine the Christian walk. He challenges believers to exercise their faith to the end that they are willing to die for what they believe in "The Legacy" -a passionate and intense tribute to Columbine martyrs Cassie and Rachel. In his production debut-the controversial, gritty, rock-flavored "Who's Team?" -he sirens a call for accountability to an industry steooed in contradictory lifestyles. With the explosive inspiration of "Incredible Christian," Da' T.R.U.T.H. reminds the saints that we live in a backwards Kingdom-God graces the weak and elevates the humble.
"Teacher?" -a hypnotic treatise-takes us to the classroom, where Da' T.R.U.T.H. examines our influencers under the microscope of Scriptures. And the soulful "2 is Better" -featuring crooning label-mate J.R. -encourages us to live as members of a biblical community. Also included, as a bonus to Da' T.R.U.T.H. enthusiasts is "Accept the King" -the hot single that fueled the release of his debut CD, reigning as MP3.com's #1 song on the Christian Hip Hop chart for over eighteen months.
With production powerhouses Official, J.R. and Lee Jerkins of Rock Soul and featured appearances by blazing newcomer Lecrae, label-mate Flame and harmonious duo, S.O.U.L., THE FAITH will excite us musically, while challenging us ot become radical Christians-impacting the world for the Kingdom of Christ in whatever context we find ourselves.
