“It feels like we’re part of history…A legacy-defining moment for a music career” said Omega Sparx. “As Christians, it’s always good to go beyond yourself.”
He continued, “It dispels stereotypes that Believers can’t be culturally relevant…We are already ready for monumental things like this.”

Coincidentally, they’ve had a lot of dealings with Christian rap artists. None bigger than this project which also featured Applejax, K-Drama, Mega Ran, and Isaac Mather.
