KJ-52 is, quite possibly, Christian hip-hop’s most polarizing figure. Some may not like his music or the way he presents it, but if you’re a Christian, it’s hard to argue with his heart for proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. His new album’s title, Dangerous, makes it obvious that he’s willing to take risks for that purpose.
As is fairly common on a KJ-52 album, Dangerous is a mixture of styles and techniques. Every song on the album, whether it be rap/rock (“Face Melt”), electropop (“It’s Goin’ Down”), a more traditional hip-hop sound (“Do the Bill Cosby”) or even an adult contemporary sound (“Dangerous”), every song is shot through with the KJ-52 sensibility that’s been there since 7th Avenue and Collaborations. His quirky and self-deprecating sense of humor combines with his particular style of evangelism is the basis of a familiar recipe that will please long-time fans.
