After a almost two year hiatus, hip-hop artist Knine has returned with his most playful but genuine work yet. Boasting over 20 tracks full of originals, outtakes, and and re-imagined lyrics over some familiar beats, Knine gives us more than a typical “mixtape”, he gives us an honest look into the world of a believer reacting to the world around him.
Seriously, this is an impressive effort by a name I have never heard before now. I think what will catch you the most is Knine‘s lyrical style. It is intensly honest, but at the same time so much fun. I could keep talking, but instead I will let John Wofford, from PatrolMag.com (a extremely critical and most times cynical website created from ex CCM followers) sing its praises.
“COMPARISONS TO Kanye West aside, there’s flair here. More than one listen is usually a good thing, unless it’s a train wreck, and then I revisit for laughs. But forget the title, forget the artwork, forget the intro that borrows from Ghost in the Machine—this guy’s on to something. He’s a socially conscious product of the system, a sardonic lyricist with a little boy’s playfulness, and a marked improvement over stereotypically bad “redeemed rap.” And his sense of humor is just twisted enough to make a stoner laugh while he makes mama proud………
Knine shows a great deal of promise. I haven’t listened to another Christian rap album that didn’t leave residual traces of regret or embarrassment. Ultimately, what’s unoriginal comes off as fun, what’s bold is still fairly accessible, and Knine’s story of conversion after a series of crimes and a drug problem is told with both humor and brash courage. ”
