Been waiting for this one!! Pro’s sophomore release on Reach Records due out Aug 23!

Death. While we all know it’s a guarantee, most of us cringe at the thought.

Life. Everybody wants to enjoy it. We want to preserve it. At all costs.

And since you’re going to die, you might as well do what thou wilt while you’re still living. Right?

Well, what if what we call living is merely wandering to and fro under the illusion that we are in control; when, in fact, our thoughts, our urges, our selfish ambitions and our deepest longings have us enslaved? That’s not living. It’s existing without purpose. But how do we overcome this chasm? Is there a solution?
Pro offers his: Dying to Live.

Following the success of Redemption, Pro returns with his second album Dying to Live–a theatrical celebration of death as the only way to life. The funeral procession is led by “A Life Worth Dying For,” an atypical eulogy that exposes mankind’s failure to see past ourselves and our surroundings to discover life, which can only be found in Christ. The intergalactic first single “Mission to Mars,” featuring and produced by PK, sets the bar for the level of production on this album offering an out of this world farewell to the mundane life. Dying to Live continues to thrill with the exhilarating, heavy metal laden “Full Court Mess” ft. KB; and hard-hitting bangers “No One Greater” ft. J’Son and Trip Lee; and “Never Back Down” ft. S.O. and Thi’sl. The album also features the melodic sounds of Jenny Norlin on “This Can’t Be” and Niya on “So Far Gone.” Other highlights include Lecrae and Tedashii on the gritty anthem “Going In” and Suzy Rock on the soul-stirring ode “Drink From His Cup.” Production from Pro, Joseph Prielozny, Tony “Stone” Shepherd, Cheesebeats, Big Juice and others makes Dying to Live an invigorating project.

“Within all men there’s a desire–to push through the pain and not burn as we walk through the fire. Though we know there’s something much greater than us, our heart’s desire tells us the only thing important is us. From life’s first cry to our final resting position is a constant jockeying for significance and attention. And as we chase the grim reaper with his diamond-covered (i)cicle, or send our brothers to meet him with vanity’s pistol, it’s clear that we are craving life–yet misdirected, trapped in a snare of night. Who can save us from this dastardly device? Give us purpose as we claw and we fight! This can’t be it. I’m sure there’s more. Show us a life worth dying for.”

‘Cus we’re Dying to Live!

Around every corner is the lure to consume. A desire to be satisfied. Unfortunately no human being has found anything under the sun that brings satisfaction. So we consume more, and more, and more.  Eventually, we overdose. However, there is hope–if Christianity is our Rehab. In Jesus, satisfaction can be found. Grace, love, peace and hope can be found…and there is always more. Consume more of Jesus. Overdose.

Our friends at Reach Records are at it again with Lecrae’s soon to be released cd “Rehab”.  Here’s a little info on what we can expect from this much anticipated project……..

Album Bio

Anger, depression, addiction, and discontentment: just a few of the ills that plaque many a man.  The solutions: join a group, read a book, basically, YOU can win this battle! 

 But what about the war?  In solely attacking the behaviors or the external problems in our lives the origin of our issues is overlooked.  Essentially, we try to alter effects, instead of exploring and tackling the cause. Some don’t realize the root of their problems is internal, in fact spiritual. Others recognize, but underestimate how serious their problems are. And even still, as believers, we trust in ourselves to overcome by our own strength.

 Out of a burden to encourage and challenge others, while also confessing his own struggles in this area, Lecrae offers REHAB.  On his long-awaited fourth album, Lecrae informs listeners that because of our sinful nature we all need rehabilitation, healing, and restoration back to the original state of unity with God. The universal solution to all our problems is not found in anything but Jesus. The Christian life is therefore an entrance into rehab.

 Fittingly, the REHAB experience begins with “Check In,” as Lecrae prepares himself and his audience to leave behind their addictions and hindrances and enter rehabilitation.  What follows is not the usual compilation of sermons and theology-driven lyrics listeners have come to expect from Lecrae. Instead, REHAB is full of gritty, heartfelt, vulnerable and even emotional songs like “Just Like You,” which specifically explores the impact of substitutionary role models that pale in comparison to the perfect example found in Christ.                

 Lecrae gets support from Sho Baraka, Trip Lee, Tedashii, Pro, J.R., Benjah and many others along the journey towards restoration—with several memorable collaborations.  PK, CheeseBeats, J.R., and Benjah contribute on production and sonically, help take the listener along a soul-full ride.  REHAB also features bangers like “Use To Do It Too” and “High” along with the anthems “Children of the Light,” “40 Deep,” and “Walking On Water”–on which Lecrae boasts in God’s ability to empower the weakest of men.

 Lecrae’s prayer is that people will not just gain practical insight for their lives, but they would find real sympathy from him and mostly, Jesus.  He is more than our healer. He IS our healing.  He doesn’t just offer us peace. He IS our peace. And He IS our rehabilitation. So find rest for your weary soul and joy in the midst of life’s ups and downs by checking into REHAB.
