Right into the path of Hurricane Freaking Dorian.
What is it about names like Dorian that makes you just want to slap somebody?
Oh, just me? Okay...
Let me use my words, instead. I moved to South Florida a few weeks ago and Uncle Dorian has decided to come all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to greet me.
I did not send him a message. I did not call him. But like an annoying relative, he is here.
With plenty of baggage to spare.
Can I send him back? No, though I wish that answer was yes.
But y'all...I just realized: My daddy can.
He can stand at the door to our house and be like, "Not today, Dorian, not today."
Oh wait...one of my brothers (his name is Matthew) just told me that Daddy has done this before.* He said they were in a boat when that annoying visitor showed up and BAM!
Just like that, Daddy tells the visitor to aller!
Okay, y'all. I feel better. I am going to go talk to my Daddy. He'd know what to do.
Quick Update: I spoke to my Daddy and He said I shouldn't worry.
This is Amazing Grace like you have never heard it before. It's fresh, it's new, it's good, it is hype.
You think you know rap? You think you know electronic music? Wait till you hear Amazing Grace. Your jaw will drop. 😄
But it's not just the beat or the cool-as-heck bars, it is the lyrics. THE LYRICS ARE SO GOOD.
Like stop, wait, hold up the club/I found Somebody that I love/Like stop, ayy, hold up the grave/I found somebody that can save/Like stop, dance, come get your mans/Bring 'em to the Man who atones for your sins/Like stop, ayy, hold up your praise/Get a little taste of amazing grace like

The Lord's Day
One word that comes to mind when I think of Hyper Fenton's music is full. There is so much richness, so much goodness, so much Jesus in this song that every time it comes on, it just fills you with joy. So many times The Lord's Day has come on and flipped my bad day upside down and I can't flipping wait for you to hear it! 😄

Thank you, Hyper Fenton, for being a vessel.
I don't usually do one-song reviews, but some songs just demand it, you know?
It's like when you eat Ramen noodles (or Indomie 😋) and it tastes like you have never eaten noodles before.
Yes, In View is just that good.
More than the catchy riffs, more than the sick beat, more than the unnameable quality in Jake James' voice, the message in In View is so strong, so real.
You make me wanna put in work baby/No matter what I will make it work for you/You make me better than before baby/But I don't see 'em till you put in view
Tell me that this is not Henry and Oyin's story in The Perfection in Love?
Love should lift you up, not put you down.
Love should make you want to do the work. So that you can you be better
That's what the Lord's love does, and that's what real romantic love should do, too.
Jake James, 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
