DJ Shok and I have been building up since 2005. It was extremely humbling when he first contacted me, as his music resume is extensive (Eve, Busta Rhymes, Snoop, DMX, Big Pun, Styles P, Jadakiss, and the list goes on.) He had taken a new direction from Ruff Ryders, and was praying about establishing connections with Believers. Since that time, our friendship has grown, with Jesus at the core. Its refreshing to have a guy you can call to simply spill and pray with; music aside. He worked on my Everyday Man record (Launch, T.I.M.B.S) and proceeded to remix the entire record as a side project, in celebration of the Everyday Man record and the tremendous reviews and purpose it has served. Were going to release it a little bit at a time.
When I threw the T.I.M.B.S. track out there to some of my peers, the response was overwhelming. Thank you to all who participated; it was a huge blessing to get you all on these tracks.
The theme is simple: we are Gods mouthpiece. Evangelism requires being deliberate in our actions and words. To use hip-hop as the subculture to express that has been a tremendous privilege for the past fifteen years.
