This duo’s songs have been in movies (The Fast and the Furious 3, Big Momma’s House) and on television (MTV, BET), but Coffee and Bonafide are ready for more. With Redemption, they are closing the Gotee Records chapter of their career and turning the page. Facing a new chapter ripe with general market possibilities (and GRITS’ own record label), they offer up their most subversive project as a swan song and a sign of things to come.

Redemption eases the frenetic pace of the sprawling double disc set Dichotomy A and B as GRITS comes of age. Much of this album, musically, falls somewhere between Lil John’s ubiquitous crunk beats and Jazzy Pha’s legendary gangsta club beats. What really separates GRITS from its multi-platinum contemporaries are the lyrics. Coffee and Bonafide are fearless lyricists—fearless about their faith, fearless about truth-telling; but each MC puts his distinctive stamp on every rhyme. Bonafide raises his game, coolly dropping wisdom in nearly every verse, while Coffee has taken his spoken word-style lyricism to a new depth. And, like the MCs, the tone of this project—with beats by little known but capable producers—is as distinctive as night and day.

“Holla @ Ya” is like a smooth, sweet chocolate, but it also brings a very pointed message of encouragement to women. The bassy grind of “Heyyy” percolates like it was custom made for slow cruisin’ Atlanta boulevards on a hot summer night. “Not the Same” might be dismissed as light urban radio fare if not for Coffee’s tongue-twisting antics. Then the sun goes down again, and the boys mash on a dark, dirty south club beat with “Tight Wit These.” The slow marching band horns on this amazing track could probably hypnotize somebody’s grandmother onto a dance floor.

Switching styles again, “Ambitions” is an everyman anthem, reflecting GRITS’ own prayers for wisdom as the duo heads into a new future. Cameos are few on Redemption, but they are well placed, with folks such as Pigeon John and re-energized underground veteran Can-I-Bus. Marred by only one near misfire, the ’80s throwback “Right Back,” Redemption is a sparkling reflection of a mature group that seems to have outgrown the Christian music scene and is completely ready to surpass the best general market hip-hop has to offer.

    I love GRITS, but I wish they would take the time to put out good stuff. This just isn't it. I liked the GRITS cd, but the dichotomy's and 7 were just not as good as the old stuff. Seems so many bands are selling out just to get another record out without putting the time into it to make it great. There were maybe 2 songs on the CD I could even stand to listen all the way through. The rest just boring and repetitive. Come on guys, you can do so much better!

    I don't care that its not even out yet. Recommend it! Support Grits and their ministry by paying full price for the CD version.High expectations? No, just high anticipation because Grits is crazy solid and awesome, and I do not worry about their quality, because they can't be bad and will always produce the best stuff anyone can hear. if they aren't convincing, I don't know what is.
