Benjiman - S.K.R.I.P.T.
Jesus Freak Hideout Review
The lyrics here are very personal and Benjiman certainly has a message he wants to get out clearly. Included in the liner notes are extensive explanations for each song, which are very helpful. "Back Home" finds Benjiman pondering the hardships he's experienced, then turning around and comparing them to what Jesus suffered for us. It's a timely reminder for any Christian. "Anx" addresses the difficulties of touring as a small independent artist. Other tracks express a determination to boldly worship Christ, and of course there are the expected hype songs such as "Cella" and "Stand Up." "Our Spot" has an amusing lyric where the rapper contradicts common stereotypes and says, "I'm not street, I'm not hood. I roll the countryside straight up out the woods."
