In a time when artist make music loaded with materialistic messages, the goal of this project to put the focus on what’s important, eternity. The prelude to “Back to the Future” is The “Databass Mixtape,” released about a year ago. Here is a brief story line. “In the system of life, there are glitches that try to stop our progression. In a world of technological advances, a body of believers fight to find their born identity in the battle against U.N.I.T.E. Applejaxx is a delegate chosen from above to follow the great commission given by the Most High. “Databass” is a next level project with fire you don’t find on other mixtapes. It’s the perfect prelude for a forward thinking, next level type album like “Back 2 The Future”
"The title Back 2 The Future is focused primarily thinking of eternity with Christ. We should not focus on treasures on earth but trust in Christ. The album title was inspired by the need to sonically bring something fresh to the table. I was personally inspired by futuristic music, movies and timeless artistry. This album is the beginning of new projects from the Fadacy Music imprint".It seems like artist today just pretty much follow trends. Whatever is popular, whatever sales,That's what is pretty much done by everyone, including Christian emcees. What happened to creativity and originality? Well Applejaxx has the answer, its right here and the future is now.
“Many people try to be carbon copies of what is current in pop or hip hop culture. Claiming to "strive for excellence" while imitating the very thing others do is not what we are about. We strive to step up the quality of our life and work so that our character, music, language, outlook, and ink spillage reflect Christ. We do this so we walk in total quality. We make trends and people follow us. With the mindset of expanding our inventive approach, we are pushed to rectify the dark clouds of deception shadowing over the world.”
“I’m always into the futuristic sound. In the mainstream, the sound that Timberland and Missy had was the sound I was attracted to. Sonically we see that the industry has gotten to the point where we have east coast, down south… but I always liked stuff that’s different as an artist. So “Back to the Future” is taking it to a different level with the music. Sonically we wanted to bring the whole futuristic sound back"Lyricism And Structure
"Matthew 6:19‐21 states that we should not store up for ourselves treasures on earth. But store up treasures in heaven. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Earth is not our final destination. It’s imperative to think of the future while living in Christ. Believers must be Christians in action. Fadacy Music’s primary objective is to provide Christ‐centered music. Music that edifies, uplift and can be used as a ministry tool. Back 2 The Future is one that encourages believers to be active Christians. There is a need to bring Christ to a generation that is not familiar with the traditional church setting. Invest in the things of the kingdom and not just a new car or a new house. So many things in this world, be it meetings or school or basketball can take your focus off Christ. So the whole point is to bring us back to our first love, because so many things can take your focus of f Christ."

Stop and Go is Speaking more along the lines of watch and pray. Basically that song is saying pray always. Praying without ceasing, in all things give thanks and in everything pray in supplication. No matter what’s going on in your life, get direction from the Lord by meditating on his Word. “My Style” is talking about being cool with GOD’s image, making his style yours and representing him,If you are bored with the current state of hip hop this is the album for you. I hate clichés but “Back to the Future” is a Breath of fresh air, a great beginning that will have you hungry for all albums to come From Applejaxx.
