Mr. Del, former member of hardcore rap group Three 6 Mafia, has been an essential source of Hip Hop music. He’s an unstoppable artist and producer, a powerful Minister, and an innovator in this genre. His untraditional approach to Gospel meets society's need for a REAL Hip Hop artist BOLD enough to proclaim the pure, uncut, unadulterated word of God in through music.
Mr. Del’s art (music) imitates his life. “Life motivates and inspires me to write,” Mr. Del says. By getting into a zone and meditating and reflecting on the Word and how it relates to his life, Mr. Del constructs lyrics that aren’t for entertaining, but for piercing heart of the listener and igniting life changing actions. His own challenges in life, as with many Hip Hop artists, made for a journal of entries that have morphed into THRILLA.
THRILLA is an acronym for THE REAL ANNOINTING. On this album, Mr. Del allows people to see more of his personal life. “THRILLA shows more of a deeper, transparent side of me,” he agrees. THRILLA allows the listener to submerge into the heart of an artist who has overcome weakness and is now refined and stronger through Christ.
THRILLA, distributed by Universal Music Christian Group, is Mr. Del’s deepest, most musically diverse project to date. The project exudes bold lyrics, hot tracks and a style that is undeniably Mr. Del! His single “Spread the Gospel” features rap mate Mali Music. The duo sync up to create a hot street mix with a taste of reggae spice while continuing to assert a powerful positive message. Mr. Del the rock star? When teamed up with IroCc and Canton Jones, yes! “Rock it Out” brings these three heavy hitting uniquely identifiable voices together to further demonstrate the extensive musical scope of THRILLA and Mr. Del’s anointed talent!
Memphis based Mr. Del exposes his lyrical journal for complete viewing on “Don’t Do It” and complete transparency seeps through on the track “My Life Rated ‘R’ (Real)”. He lays it down as real as it gets releasing descriptive memoirs of life growing up with an abusive stepfather, life in the streets and being a young man with a torn soul. But beyond the beats and lyrics, this project inculcates that God's grace is sufficient enough for your weakness and through your weakness and pressing, out of that comes an anointing.
