Chad Jones' expressive delivery and witty punchlines has made him a favorite for the genre, and fans have been anticipating a solo release after multiple features.

Words carry a ton of meaning and rap music makes room for a ton of words. That means whether right, wrong, or indifferent, rap is unique in its ability to convey a message.
Over the years hip hop has gotten a bad rap (pun absolutely intended) because its lyrics so consistently boast in things like violence, materialism, drug use, and misogyny.

Maybe more than any other 60-year-old Caucasian, midwestern pastor, God has used John Piper to shape and influence this kind of hip hop. If you haven’t tasted Reformed theology and Christian Hedonism with a little boom bap or over some hard hitting 808’s, here’s a theological EP.

Durin the process of creating his next album, tragedy struck the closest place to his heart and family, and T-dot took a hiatus from working on his upcoming release.
