116 Clique has done it again! This group of young talented rappers continue to step up and deliver great sounding , biblically saturated, theologically sound, Christ exalting music. Their latest effort is Tedashii’s “Identity Crisis”.  My friend Roger Servin has done a very good detailed review of the CD here. I’ll just share a few of my highlights today.

1)This is a wonderfully produced CD. It sounds great. In fact as we were coming home from town last night I had “26’s” turned up with the windows down and my wife made me turn it down at the red light. You need to know all I have is a factory system in my ride………………. In all the songs the music and the delivery of the lyrics flow with awesome consistency. I also love the progression and line-up of songs as they take us through The fall, our adoption and our new fellowship with each other as the church.

2)I love the way he meshed the heavy hitting in you face songs like “26’s” and “Make War”, with some more mellow laid back tunes like “Hollywood and Gotta Believe”.

3)I can totally relate to the song ”Hollywood”.  In this song he points out the dangers of allowing movies and music to influence your life. He mentions in the song alot of the movies and musicians I used to let influence me. Most of the time in  negative way. So this song hit close to home.

4)I can honestly say there are no bad songs on the entire cd. It’s not often I say that. You can put it in and enjoy it from song 1 to song 15. Of course as with any CD I have picked out my favorites “26’s ” ft Lecrae, the previously mentioned “Hollywood”, ” Make War” ft Flame “I’m A Believer” ft Trip Lee and SoYe’ and “Community” ft Stephen The Levite and Sho Baraka will definitely get extra playtime.

5)It was also good to see the other 116 artist lend their unique talents to this project. I don’t think it took away from Tedashii’s efforts at all.

All in all I highly recommend you getting this CD, especially you youth leaders that are looking for solid music for your students to listen to. You won’t be disappointed.
