“Christian hip-hop doesn’t get more fist-pumpingly urgent and soulful as it does when Kevin Burgess, aka KB, is on the mic. His latest album sidles out of the gate with a bit of calm before a perfect storm of deeply felt beats and rhymes that shine the spotlight on Burgess’ struggles with sin and faith…As all good Christian rap should, Weight & Glory leaves you with a charge in your spine and your hands in the air.”-ChristianityToday.com
“Weight & Glory is loaded with great messages, tight flows, and excellent collaborations. This is one of the best debut albums you could pick up, especially in this genre…What’s the best part of the whole thing? KB’s heart.”- JesusFreakHideout.com
“From the opening piano of “Weight Music” as it segues into intense beats and rapid fire rapping, you know this is going to be an instant classic…The first few songs on the album do a great job of setting the stage, but once you hit the middle of the disc, you really get into the meat of his message.”-HollywoodJesus.com
Fans can pick-up Weight & Glory in retail stores across the country and through iTunes ®. In conjunction with the release of his new album, KB will also be touring with label mates Lecrae, Tedashii, Pro, Trip Lee and Andy Mineo on the Unashamed 2012: Come Alive tour.
