Tye Tribbett – Everything will be Alright

So on this wonderful Monday God has made, I was sitting at my desk and a colleague sent this Tye Tribbett YouTube link to me. If you are familiar with Tye Tribbett & G.A music, you’ll agree with me he’s got some Holy Ghost vibes and moves. Some of his songs like: Stand out and I want it all back have blessed each time I listen to it.

Oh my, I couldn’t resist the beat and the lyrics. They were just so practical relating to the most challenging times we face as Christians. Actually, I think life is boring when we don’t have challenges to face everyday. The fact is: God won’t give us more than we can handle. My journey in life has taught me God has got everything covered beyond our imagination.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Tye Tribbett – Everything will be alright. I promise you’ll love this beautiful track. I wanted to post excerpts from the lyrics but I decided to post all anyway. Enjoy!!!

[Verse 1:]
Sometimes you hate waking up in the morning
You feel like nothing’s changed since the night before
You see the same bills sitting there on the table
And no doubt the same food in the refrigerator
You say to yourself there’s nothing in-store for this day
So what’s the use of me waking up anyway

[Chorus:]
But hold your head up high, God is on your side
Just dry your eyes and know God’s made a way
Be encouraged
Everything will be alright

[Verse 2:]
So you finally get up and say I’ll just ignore what I feel
So you get dressed, walk out the house, but you forgot
There’s a boot on your wheel
Ladies and Gentlemen I understand what you feel when life gets like that
‘Cause I’ve been there to and let me tell you, there ain’t no pain that hurts like that
But you’ve got to remember though your life seems unfair
That He won’t put more on you than you can bear

[Chorus:]
But hold your head up high, God is on your side
Just dry your eyes and know God’s made a way
Be encouraged
Everything will be alright

[Vamp:]
Alright, it will be alright
Alright, alright, alright

Hi everyone, the past two weeks has been awesome for me. Well, I think I’m back. I must confess i really missed you all. Yeah, I did #puppyeyes. So, I decided to do a quick review of this Godly beautiful babe – Jamie Grace. My love for this song boils down to the fact that I play the guitar (well, to an intermediate level). I love the beat, the lyrics and the flow of this track. Jamie Grace did this song God Girl [link to video] in which she addresses God with a similar got-a-crush tone, saying “I’m your girl” — by way of explaining that she isn’t interested in dating any boys right now (and, amusingly, that she wants all her “Facebook friends and foes” to know that she worships God).

If my eyes light up when I say your name And it’s written all over my face Tell me does it make me crazy. Well, maybe I got somethin’ that I can’t explain And the beauty of it never changes, It’s got me wrapped up I’m all caught up.I can’t help but say I’m a God girl that’s who I’ll be From the top of my head to the soles of my feet No I can’t deny it wouldn’t even try, I’m your girl in a crazy world I’m a God girl that’s who I’ll be From the top of my head to the soles of my feet I can’t deny it wouldn’t even try, I’m your girl for the whole wide world to see

This songs tells me not to conform to the standards of the world no matter what. Romans 12:2 says “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” 4153401 She went ahead in the verse two to emphasize how she has determined not to get pushed into marriage no matter what people say but to always wait on God for the right ONE. To all the guitar lovers, my christian hip hop lovers and every Jamie Grace fans, I dedicate this track to you.

Lecrae – Free from it all feat. Mathai (update)

You may not have followed Christian hip-hop for years like I have, so I’ll briefly catch you up. I was introduced to rap music at a very young age, I use to listen to the likes of Eminem, 50 cent and others but after I got to know more of God requirements for my life, I immediately put a hiatus to their music. However, Christian rap is not just some lyrics; it’s deep in God, it’s God’s word in another amazing way bonded by a love for Christ and a love for gospel rap. We tracked the pioneering efforts of artists like Mars ILL, Grits, The Cross Movement, Gospel Gangstaz, Tunnel Rats, Braille, Lecrae, and LA Symphony. It will also shock you to know Nigeria also has some magnificent gospel rap artist like Rooftopmc’s, IBK spaceship boy,Rapsodee, Cikko, X2L, Omari, Bouqui,

We mused over whether Christian rappers could actually make a difference or were forever consigned to small crowds and little trust among the broader evangelical community. Today, I’m glad to say we have a verdict on that last question. Gospel hip-hop is here. It has broken through. It’s edifying the church, it’s influencing the culture, and, wow, it’s moving units.

When I stopped listening to secular music, I had to take time to tune myself with other genre of music but with time, I got to know we have gospel rap artist living their lives for God. On this note, I hereby present to you a track from Lecrae’s Gravity Album: FREE FROM IT ALL. This year, Lecrae has something to say to us all. Enjoy!

This song started with a sonorous voice of Mathai of the chorus followed by strings of rap from Lecrae. This is a crucial part of Lecrae’s appeal: he speaks with directness and honesty about life’s struggles even as he constantly points to the superabundance of grace found in Christ. An example of this kind of clarity comes in this track “Free from It All,” where Lecrae raps from the perspective of a beauty-obsessed person, detailing the empty brevity of a life driven by appearance.

The price of fame and living for other people’s thoughts can literally kill someone inside. “Life is a cage and a prison of everyone’s approval/ Fight for acceptance and struggle so you don’t ever lose it/ But living for their acceptance is kind of stressing,” Lecrae raps. Because he’s living for God and not people, what people think about him and his progress isn’t a factor. “Should I fall, I’m still free from it all,” Mathai sings. Dru Castro and Uforo Ebong create a head-nodding track with powerful guitars. I took time to quote my favourite lines :

No grace and no exceptions, all they want is perfection
The man in the mirror can’t even see his reflection
You live for their acceptance, you die from their rejection
But even if I fall, I fell in the right direction
.

They say they love you, but It’s easy to fall from their graces
Live for everyone else gotcha losing yourself
Why be slave when made to be free from the guilt?
To be free from the shame, you are more than a name
If you go down you got the freedom to get up again

And of course, it’s got a beat that keeps head nodding, feet tapping and hands in the air. I’m pretty sure it’s a song you got to listen to especially if you are a lover of rap. #Doing funny movements to the track like I’m drunk#….Ah Ah, Drunk in tha holy-ghost!

#In my rap tone#

Look, I ain’t gonna pretend that car and my crib
Give me worth and meaning ‘cuz I know they never did
Them numbers in my bank account are no reason for living’.
Flown first class, flown private jets
Rode in the foreign cars; still so unimpressed……

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Wooowwww, Lecrae did a good justice to this awesome mind blowing track. Everything about this song is just too wowwww for me – The lyrics, tune, chorus and the rap flow.

Why I love it: It reminds me life is vanity, it brings an awareness that nothing can replace the God void in me.
This takes us back to the word in the manual of life ‘seek ye first the kingdom of God and other things shall be added to you’. Material things don’t mean much when happiness is a luxury that money can’t buy. The poignant MC schools us on this thought-provoking cut.

#switch to pidgin#

Shey na dat house dey freak you, abi nah the diamond ring or the trip to Dubai…Abeg, get m for mind say nothing fit replace God. Drugs, Alcohol, Sex in form of fornication/adultery, etc – they no fit replace God, all nah just temporary pleasure.

I really hope this song ministers to you in a more special way.
