Humble Beast Records announced Sho Baraka’s label debut project on Friday.

On Oct. 21, Humble Beast will release Sho’s fourth studio album, which is titled The Narrative and will feature Lecrae, Jackie Hill Perry and Courtney Orlando, among others.

“The theologian rapper confronts controversial topics in The Narrative including social consciousness, issues of everyday life and the struggles we all face as humans,” a press release read.

“He also shows a softer side, opening up about the journey of being a father and the challenges that come with raising children, two of which are autistic. No matter what the issue at hand, it is all saturated in a Gospel worldview, which informs how Sho wrestles through each train of thought.

“Sho Baraka’s hope is that his music will serve as a gateway for listeners to engage in conversation with each other, ask questions and draw closer to God.”
