T-Bone - 'Bone-Appetit: Servin' Up Tha Hits'
If rock is your thing, "Raised In Harlem" will hit the spot. Urban jam fan? "Name Droppin" (featuring Eric Dawkins) is a great jam with a real sense of fun. And speaking of fun, "Pentecostal Horse Racing" takes several listens before you can hear the entire song over your own laughter. Natalie LaRue and Mark Stuart of Audio Adrenaline help make the Latin-tinged "Sing Your Praises" a real winner.
My personal faves are the West Coast "Dippin'," "I've Been Looking Around" (which features the beautiful voice of Rachel Lampa) and "GospelAlphaMegaFunkyBoogieDiscoMusic," featuring secular rapper KSR-One.
Speaking of secular rappers, the appearances of Mack 10 and KSR-One are the only complaints that I've heard about this CD. This isn't exactly a new thing though, as T-Bone has been accused of being too worldly before.
Full of Great Music
KRS-One released a gospel-rap album in 2002 called Spiritual Minded (Compare prices) that featured T-Bone.
Mack 10 hasn't released any gospel CDs and yes, the gangsta rapper has had a few instances of bad behavior, but does that mean that he hasn't accepted Christ as his personal Savior? Isn't the beauty of Christianity that Jesus died for all of us and forgives us for our sins?
I don't know either secular rapper, but I do know T-Bone and I simply can not believe that he would invite someone to appear on one of his songs if he didn't believe that their heart belonged to Christ.
So, bottom line here is that despite the controversy caused by some of the choices in guest artists, Bone-Appetit: Servin' Up Tha Hits is full of great music. T-Bone shows the world, yet again, that he is one of the best that Gospel Rap has to offer.
