ATLANTA, April 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- Reach Records recording artist Sho Baraka has released his sophomore album "Lions and Liars" to rave reviews and chart-topping sales. It debuted at No.3 on the iTunes Hip Hop chart and No.14 overall, while reaching No.3 on the Billboard Gospel chart. With his second LP, Sho Baraka challenges believers to be "lions" in this culture and master their domain for the glory of God; negating the lies that popular culture bombards us with. The album features label mates Lecrae, Tedashii, and Trip Lee; also, JAMM, Erica Cumbo, and many others. With production from Dj Official, Cheese Williams, Alex Medina, and G-Rocc, "Lions and Liars" promises to be a sonically diverse journey.
On "Lions and Liars," Sho takes on faith, manhood, and selflessness, but not at the expense of good quality music. Tracks like "Me, Myself and I," "Liars Anthem," "Revolutionary Died," and "4ever is 2morrow" reflect a biblical worldview, yet still have crossover appeal. And "Lion's Anthem," "Famous," "Shut Us Down," and "I.T.W.N.O.I." are surefire Christian anthems that fans will be gushing over. Not to mention the album's first single, "We Can Be More ft J.R.," which introduces a new dimension to Christian music, even more so to Gospel Rap: a love song. The single offers a pure perspective on love and relationships, and challenges men to respect and uphold true love.
No topic is off limits on "Lions and Liars" as Sho weaves his own story into the album, offers his perspective on mainstream culture and even challenges the widely held Christian view that in order to truly impact society you need to be in full-time ministry. Sho inspires listeners to affect change wherever they are, whatever their vocation.
"Lions and Liars" is a testament to a redeemed, yet still culturally relevant artist, whose unique approach gives the album the ability to change the perceptions about hip-hop, revolutionizing the genre and its supporters. And while Sho’s style is untraditional, his biblical convictions are strong; there's no mistaking his motivation as he raps, "Now my only job is to make [Christ] famous."
Reach Records, which recently relocated to Atlanta, is an independent hip-hop label dedicated to producing and promoting substantive hip-hop artists like Sho Baraka.
