Act 2. Seen Thre. (Catch that)
Plays, like life, are often presented in acts. The idea is to have each act build on the previous, all taking the audience on its roller coaster ride on a journey towards the climax. The story, in essence, gets better as it goes along.
The Chicago native, who burst onto the seen in 2014 as a major blip on the radar of CHH platforms after numerous features and singles throughout the space, and then proved that attention warranted with the release of 2015's GOD Glorified and Strangeland EPs, is back with a second act that he prays surpasses the first.
To start, news:
After becoming a part of the now-defunct Nftry collective in 2018, Thre becomes the first official roster addition to the rebooted HISStory Music Group. The label's owner, Dee Black, is no stranger to trading bars with Thre, featuring and being featured with the "Chi-Raq" MC on records like "Bar Fight" and "Bottom Line", and Mouthpi3ce's "Return of the 16's". To celebrate re-entry, Thre drops his first official release since 2020's "Traffic" with "Fisherman" a deep, driving journal entry covering Thre's desire to be used by GOD. "Fisherman" hit digital platforms on January 21st, 2023.
Welcome back, Thre; the show must go on.
Growing up in the streets of Chicago you’re bound to follow after something or someone. Thre found himself following the ways of the world comfortably, being led and leading others down a broad path that only ended in destruction. Now, as a follower of Christ, he’s fishing for those who are like he once was.
Matthew 4:19-20. (ESV)
And He (Jesus) said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.
There’s an important principle here. If you’re not fishing, you’re not following. If your Christian life does not involve evangelizing the lost, you do not function like the disciple Jesus intends. Evangelism includes sharing the gospel and intentionally seeking to convert the hearer to faith in Jesus Christ.
Every believer is not called to a full-time Christian vocation, but every believer is called to be a full-time Christian. That means that following Christ must be your number one priority.
Fisherman was written out of this conviction. It’s been a little over two years since Thre released any music. This single fills in the blank of that time that he’s been silent as an artist. Thre has been doing ministry on the south side of Chicago and nothing has changed. “you knew me then you know me now, ain’t nothing changed at His feet I lay my crown.” The mission has always been and will always be to share the gospel with the lost. Like, share, and be a part, of Hisstory.
