St. Louis emcee Flame returns with this third album release, the first in a two-part series. Our World: Fallen uses heavy imagery and thought provoking rhymes to detail the tragic downfall of a world without Christ. Features guest appearances from Diamone and Tedashii.

FLAME just keeps em coming. After a successful 2004 debut and a solid follow-up a year later, the young Cross Movement affiliate is ready for his third assault, the conceptual Our World: Fallen.
To say the brothers on fire is an understatement: Like never before, the St. Louis emcee with the Ludacris-like flow is on a mission to revolutionize lives for Christ, using hard-hitting beats and a shameless zeal for the Gospel to drive his point.
But if previous albums were didactic attempts at educating the masses about the Good News, Our World: Fallen is much more urgent. Here, the presentation of the message of salvation isnt just an academic endeavor; its a matter of life or death. In it, FLAME channels the realities of a planet riddled with sin, a world replete with hopeless souls and broken hearts that hide in their iniquity, their neediness, or the fleeting illusion of a MySpace page.
The realness of the imagery and brooding rhythmic atmosphere render Our World: Fallen a dense, hard-to-swallow dose of hip-hop, but the silver lining of Christs atoning love runs throughout. (To hear how the story unfolds, FLAME already has the sequel all planned out: Our World: Redeemed is due in the fall.)
