"For the Kingdom" sets the tone for the album as this rapper from Maryland makes it clear he is here to preach Christ and do this for the kingdom (of God), over a pulsating bass and tuneful keyboard sounds and melodies. This is a unique album in which J Weathers programmes some excellent, highly varied, tuneful and complex patterns - as in the catchy and Father God-focused "My Daddy". We also have minimalist tracks such as "Don't Stop" as J Weather challenges us, "How many Christians would rather have God than silver and gold?" affirming that he traded pipe dreams for spiritual wings. We find a similar minimalist edge in "All Of The Above". There are elements of reggae, as in another standout track with haunting vocal hook, "My G-O-D". We find jazzy elements in "Gospel Glide" as J Weathers takes us on some very smooth hip-hop slide. Another downtempo jazzy track is "So Sweet", an encouraging track to keep your head up and know God's love and forgiveness. There are a couple of thought provoking almost hip-hop worship songs such as "New Beginnings", "I Love You Back" and "Ready To Fly". As we end with another anthemic track, "Holy Hands", we're encouraged to wave holy hands, glorify God and party for God, holding to God's standards. Although at times tracks can be over-busy, this is encouraging gospel rap that builds through the album.
