5 Stars Out Of 5
Sho Baraka reaches the next level
January 10, 2013
the long version: Sho Baraka's third album puts him in Christian hiphop's upper echelon, combining conscious, thought-provoking, and socially redeeming topics and rhymes with some of the best beats i've ever heard on a Christian hiphop album- fresh, original, interesting, perfectly matched rhythms with flows. Organic instruments and samples, not overdone with lazers and synths. Talented Xth (tenth) overflows with some of the best tracks i've heard in a long time, Christian or otherwise. The guest appearances are appropriate, contribute to the overall track quality without outshining the headliner or feeling like guests for guesting's sake. Top notch production, well-written material with proper execution makes this album an absolute must have.
the short version: people, buy this album. you will not be disappointed. not one track to skip in the whole set.
