3. "Represent" (The ﬁrst unashamed anthem)
I had forgotten the impact of this song until it was played last year on the Unashamed Tour to a raucous crowd reaction. This was literally the ﬁrst unashamed anthem. The success/surprise of this chant was its "in your face" delivery, which was foreign to many in the still-growing Christian Hip Hop genre. It signaled a clear shift from the less accessible theological expository rap of the late 90's/early 2000s to more aggressive chants for the concerts. Without the success of this song, many of the Reach anthems we have grown to know and love may never have been released.
