Reviewed by Mark Sherwood

This is the Denton, Texas-based rapper's third outing for Reach Records. I reviewed his 'Kingdom People' which was his first and although a decent album it wasn't earth shattering. 'Blacklight' (which is an ultraviolet light that shows up things that are naked to the visible eye), however, is leaps and bounds ahead of this. Tedashii wants to expose deeper issues of the faith like a blacklight shows up hidden things. This package offers 16 tracks for your enjoyment so it's value for money as well. Highpoints are the title track, "Dum Dum" featuring the awesome Lecrae. With its banging bass and singalong chorus this song will blow your mind! There are other excellent cuts here, check out the slower, heart searching "Last Goodbye" featuring Benjah which reflects on couples separated by war, and "Burn This House Down" which takes a more organic approach with its lyrical theme of turning our backs on sin. Thoroughly recommended.

The third album from the Texas-based emcee.

Benjah Tedashii Anderson's third long-player opens with the explosive Riot, a sequel of sorts to the equally propulsive Make War from 2009's Identity Crisis.

The Houston, Texas-based rapper may sound Dirty South, but his rhymes rise up from the squalor in search of a higher power. Backed by a small army of collaborators including Flame & Jai, Sho Baraka, Lecrae, and Shane & Shane -- the latter of whom provide one of the album's more transcendent moments during the moody, Gangsta's Paradise-inspired choruses of Finally -- Blacklight finds the CCM rapper in fine form, building a bridge between the mean streets and the open sky while keeping his finger firmly on the pulse of 21st century hip-hop.
