Urban Praise

Today marks the release date of Lyrical Theology, Vol. 2: Doxology by shai linne. This album is the second of a trilogy and was preceded by Lyrical Theology, Vol . 1: Theology.

From Lampmode Records

“LT2: Doxology is strongly influenced by the great hymns of the Christian faith, with blended worship styles that alternately bring to mind everything from Negro spirituals to golden-era Hip-hop. Expect a musically diversified sound as LT2: Doxology not only features rap, but hymns and songs of praise. Leah Smith, Chris Lee Cobbins, Brooks Ritter, and Joint Heirs are featured on the album, with most of the production handled by Wes Pendleton.

With the recent increase of churches being planted in urban contexts around America, the question has arisen: What songs will these churches sing? While there are plenty of options in contemporary gospel, CCM, etc., Shai believes that writers from Hip-hop culture have a unique role to play in producing contextualized worship songs that are equally useful in car systems and congregations on Sundays. LT2: Doxology is an offering in this regard.”

Purchase this album on itunes, amazon.com, or lampmode.com.
