West’s follow-up to 2018’syewas initially teased back in August, when Kim Kardashian Westhinted at its releaseby tweeting a photo of a handwritten tracklist and the date September 27. On the night of the 27th, Kim announced that the album would arrive two days later. It did not materialize.
At several points on the album, Kanye references the 13th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, which established the abolition of slavery. The text of the 13th Amendment reads: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” On the song “On God,” Kanye raps, “13th Amendment, gotta end it, that’s on me.”
“..FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL KINDS OF EVIL...”
...but it is also Eshon Burgundy's latest and arguably, best album to date. Arriving more than three years after his last full length project, in 'For the Love of Money' longtime fans will find an Eshon filled with conviction and passion in an experience reminiscent of what they found in their favorites from the Philadelphia, PA emcee. Newcomers will find a master craftsman who weaves in and out of each song with skill, conviction and creativity. With sonic landscapes from NFTRY Members Rising Son and J. Rhodan, as well as DaBoomSquad, Carnegie and Tommy Black, 'For the Love of Money' presents the freshness of Blood Rushing to My Head, the grit of For God's Sake, the polish of The Fear of God and the creative courage found on The Passover; vintage, and yet it feels like the beginning of something new for Eshon Burgundy and the NFTRY.

Back in July, hip hop veterans Krum and Theory Hazit announced that they would be joining forces on an album. They began to campaign and promote this album with a series called “Muddy Mondays,” and on every Monday either songs from the project, unreleased tracks, or announcements would be dropped on their Instagram accounts. They have already given the fans some treats with a 9 track mini project made up of songs that didn’t make the album titled ‘SPAT.‘ This project was released as a cassette tape only project with some exclusive merch attached. Krum took to Twitter last weekend to tell the fans or “Road Dogs” to save up their money as they had a big announcement to make on Monday(September 2).

Rebel is the third studio album by Christian rap artist, Lecrae. The album was released by Reach Records on September 30, 2008. The album was nominated in the best Rap/Hip-Hop Album category at the 40th Annual GMA Dove Awards but lost to Group 1 Crew's Ordinary Dreamers.
Rebel is titled after Lecrae's encouragement to rebel against modern pop culture, also pointing out that Jesus Christ himself was a rebel. Lecrae has stated that the title of the album is both a noun and a verb. Rapzilla called the album "a verbal onslaught against the world's view on life in modern day culture.”
Lecrae tackles some important issues in Rebel. In the album's intro and title track, Lecrae says that Christians must rebel against the ways of the world. Read More Here
The strongest messages on Rebel comes from the many stories within it. Take "Identity" for example, 3 stories in one song told by Lacrae, Da T.R.U.T.H. and J.R. Lecrae starts off by telling a tale about a dude who has almost everything; cars, clothes, a nice crib, physical prowess. But he is still insecure because Christ isn't fulfilling him. Crae says he could give it up if he only knew Jesus completes him. Next, Da TRUTH comes thru and examines himself and measures his success. He asks if his success is from what he wears and what he produces in the booth? Because if those things make him successful he would be depressed because people don't feel him "like they did in 04". He is successful because he is God's friend. After listening to this verse, I think Da Truth had some missing pages (sorry KJ-52) from his "Open Book". These stories of realness are flowed over an electronic beat which makes these rhymes stories timeless.
Finally, the production of Rebel can stand up to 98 percent of all new releases out now. Lecrae has a great ear for picking beats and producers to assist in this endeavor. Reach Record followers are going to love the Rebel album. All in all Rebel is a solid album that listeners will enjoy as they revolt against un-biblcal worldviews. Read More Here
