San Diego, CA JUNE 27 2009 – Clister T. Smith, co- founder of “THAT FUNKTION” ministries along side DJ Naz-e, has taken a break from coordinating Funktions to release an epic album that will take you on an emotional journey. “DIRECTIONS 2 REAL,” his freshman release, will make you laugh, cry, and more importantly think! With a lyrical ability and transparent content, Clister clearly sets himself apart from the rest.
“When I began writing the lyrics for this album, I went into it trying to be as authentic as possible,” Clister says. “I wanted people to see my joy and my pain. Music allows me to turn my feelings and my experiences into something tangible. Being a Christian artist there is pressure to display victory in Christ, but in that we must also show the journey to victory.”
His first single “MEAN” is a head knottier that will loosen the bolts on your Chevy if you’re not careful! With versatility in styles, “DIRECTIONS 2 REAL” gives an introspective look at the battles of being a Christian from the inside. With tracks like ”FAITHFUL” that tug at the heartstrings, and “New” that will get you up and praising, “DIRECTIONS 2 REAL” is destined to save lives and break strongholds!
