D4C – “Unite”

Rating: 6.13 (Out of 10)
A rapper from “Down Under” better known as D4C (Disciple 4 Christ) puts an Australian touch on Christian Hip-Hop bringing a positive message of peace, hope, and love with the release of this project: “Unite”.
Unite is a clear presentation of “The Gospel” and D4C shows how his boast is in the Gospel. It might not be the best album, or album of the year, but it definitely reflects the heart of D4C and paints a picture of who he is, who he wants to be, and his love for God. I was surprised when I found out that all the profits from the album were being given to Diamond Pregnancy Support for awareness and to help women going through pregnancy and thoughts of abortion.
The features on this album are: Sevin, Mark Ant, Genesiz, Tim Turner, Purified, KamBINO, Disciple, Prolifik, R-Swift, Praze, thagoodshepherd, Silaz, Zion, Limerick, and Anneleise Meywes.
Knowing Sevin, KamBINO, and R-Swift were on the album definitely sparked my interest, but when I heard Zion tearing it up on the song “Repent” I had to say that this song probably was one of the ones that stick out the most on this project.
Highlights of the album are: Forgiven, Shout, Beautiful, and Repent.
This album has good features. Some of the production is pretty crazy sounding (as in good). The message, the content, the heart behind the project, and the impact are all contributing factors to making it a decent album. The mix is not the best, but it’s not the worst either, in fact I’ve heard worse mixes from “better” artists.
When compared to most commercial albums this album doesn’t quite meet par, but it meets enough to have an impact, attract fans, and turn some heads. It seems always a trend that you hear an artist release an album, and then a year later you hear their music on a whole new level of superiority.
For a first solo album, D4C is off to a good start, as he learns more and gets wittier with his lyricism. I’m positive he will learn some new techniques and push the envelope in future releases. He has the zeal, motivation, capability and positivity to continue making music and surpass the music he creates in present time and past time.
