Now considered one of Christian music’s most iconic artists, KJ-52 is gearing up to release his 11th studio album and the follow up to 2014’s Mental. The new album is entitled Jonah, after his real first name, and will be released publicly January 20th. Here’s what the PledgeMusic campaign page says about the album…
Crazy is a relative word, one to spin around and play with—the way a certain well-known rap artist flips rhymes about having faith even in this fallen world. Some say belief in God is crazy. Others might suggest not putting down spiritual roots in these crazy times is a sure sign of losing one’s mind. On his new release “Jonah”, hip-hop innovator KJ-52 finds the common ground with uncommon style, reaching out to seekers and skeptics alike.
”Jonah” fields a struggling society’s growing question head on and in short order. An LP introducing eight taut songs with immediately memorable hooks; it gets real, has fun, and goes deep from beat to beat, marking a step forward in an already exemplary urban music career.
KJ-52, born Jonah Sorrentino, broke through at a time when rap and religion rarely mixed. With his own mix of sharp wit and lyrical intelligence, he steadily led the genre into the mainstream, making the scene via guest spots on pop records (Newsboys, TobyMac Jeremy Camp)
He’s even in the Guinness Book of World Records for his freestyle skills. That’s crazy, right? Not really.
“Our world is broken. It’s gone nuts,” he concludes. “But there’s still hope for us all. We can get our minds healthy, help each other out as friends, and seek God for the next steps in life.”
After thriving through the seamless transition between a cutting edge newcomer at the tip of the 2000’s to one of today’s most respected and ambitious rap/hip-hop heroes, KJ-52 continues pushing the musical and lyrical envelope. This is his 11th release, and will be done completely independent and self released.
