Rapper Cephas Drops' "New Day", A Song Of Healing & Inspiration

"I wrote this song to encourage myself to get out of bed in the morning," Cephas comments about his debut single New Day.  "The lyrics were written to help me get out of a prolonged period of traumatic depression where at times I became suicidal," he says "God used the process of writing this song to help me heal."

The spiritual and emotional damage ensued after discovering his pastor and mentor of ten years was secretly sexually molesting and raping members of the Church.  Cephas describes that the lyrics for New Day came to him while spending time alone seeking restoration, "The hook came to me out of thin air. I was feeling super grateful that day and in my encouraged state yelled out 'It's a new day!' then boom… I felt the peaceful rush of God's presence and knew I was onto something."

The song features a classic golden era vibe and sounds very uplifting right from the start. This soulful soundscape paired with Cephas's witty lyrics and catchy hook makes New Day the type of song you find yourself singing long after the music stops.  The production, handled by Damu The Fudgemunk, actually comes from Damu's previous instrumental album Vignette's New Day the single and video are set to drop on YouTube on Friday January 10, 2020.

The single/video is the first of many that will come from Cephas's long awaited debut mixtape The We Will Go Sessions.  The project is set to drop in March of 2020 on GO! Records.

About Cephas
No stranger to CHH Cephas got his start in '02 carving out a reputation for himself as a go to producer for combining vintage vibes with modern sonics.  His soulful jazzy productions garnished the attention of some of CHH's elite including Datin, Bumps INF, Bizzle, Selah The Corner, Beleaf of The Dream Junkies, Lavoisier, Yaves, D-Maub, K-Drama, and others.

As a DJ Cephas has had the privilege of backing NF at Creationfest, was the headlining DJ for the Love Is Red conference twice (feat. Carl Lentz, John Gray, Rich Wilkerson Jr, Elevation Worship, & Andy Mineo), and co-hosted as a DJ for KB, Tedashii, Thousand Foot Krutch, and the Jabbawockeez dance crew with Nick Hall for the Pulse Cleveland Crusade.

Not only has Cephas been active as a producer & DJ but he has had his hands in other aspects of the music industry as well. As a show promoter for the midwest him and his team have hosted the likes of Social Club, Bizzle, Christon Gray, KB, Tedashii, D-Maub, K-Drama, Yaves, Selah The Corner, Sevin (Hogmob), Beleaf, Ruslan, and John Givez, among others.

At the end of the day... Cephas refrained from the pressures and lures of the secular hip hop industry for a reason: because spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ is his single most important goal as an artist.  At all of his shows (even when promoting) he preaches an extremely clear Gospel message and it's estimated that over the last decade thousands of young people have heard the Good News through His music ministry.  The music is a blessing however it serves even a greater purpose in drawing people closer to the call God has on their lives.

"For the Love of Money (FTLOM) is Eshon Burgundy’s [fifth official project]. The record examines American culture and economics through the lens of Scripture, continually pushing back on the idolatry of riches and encouraging listeners who feel they lack wealth. Eshon argues that reliance on God is a much greater treasure than financial certainty about tomorrow." (Ezydu). Source

I have songs I like more than others but this album is pretty much unskippable. And that is rare for an album 20 songs deep nowadays.

A blend of dope production, deep thought provoking lyrics, and an assist from artist like Steven Malcom, Jeremiah Bligen, and S.O. make this twenty track work of art my album of the year for 2019.
