Every once in a while, an artist drops an album that changes the game. Beacon Light’s latest effort Loud Drive Home is one of those albums. Loud Drive Home is beautifully crafted from beginning to end, there is absolutely no reason to use the skip button. Rather, turn the stereo up, take a drive, jam out, and reflect. The album starts out with provocative thoughts concerning idolatry and redemption as Beacon admits that hip hop became something for him that it shouldn’t have, and how God has redeemed hip hop in his life. Beacon unapologetically proclaims that Jesus is his first love, in turn, that Jesus has a greater place in his life than hip hop. This sets the stage nicely as you see this theme carry though the whole album. Beacon does a great job of taking the listener on a real-life journey which is fitting given the album’s title. One of the way’s I think Loud Drive Home shines is in its features. The features were very well thought out and it’s clear. This album showcases some amazing talent like Steven Malcolm & Canon but also some fantastic up and coming artists like Kevi and Spencer Kane. If you are looking for a couple of songs to test drive I would suggest Stay Up and Sleeping on me ft. Spencer Kane, if you aren’t sold by those two, check out Too Easy ft. Joey Jewish, after that you’re on your own. Loud Drive Home is dynamic, and in my opinion Christ-centered hip hop at its finest.
I want to encourage and challenge you to support those artists that are not only grinding but putting out quality music! You can purchase Loud Drive Home on all major digital outlets for $9.99, here is the link to purchase it on iTunes: apple.co/2jpKzRR, do yourself a favor and don’t sleep on this album.
