SOAP BOX: My God is so creative, strategic and infinite. He has a way of ministering to every soul–from sending missionaries to the most desolate corners of third-world countries to impregnating vocalists and lyricists with music directly designed to minister to those who live and breathe HIP HOP.
Ready Aim is truly that FIYAH! If you listen to it carefully, it is clearly a rebuke for those who question his walk–on either side. It is biblically grounded; but, you do have to have the Word in your heart to hear it. This track could easily be the sequel to the hymn “I Have Decided to
Follow Jesus.” When you decide to follow Jesus, you follow Him at all costs and you’re willing to be attacked on every side: fighting against principalities and powers of the air, internalizing the fact that no weapon formed against you will prosper. His verse of cadence seems to express his sentiment towards trying to reach the secular audience. He’s been called to do this, so, if you’re ready, aim and FIRE!
