Da' T.R.U.T.H.
Love, Hope, War

Ten years ago, a young, 25-year-old fireball peaked his head into the gospel industry with an EP entitled Who Is The Truth, and quickly became one of Hip Hop's most sought after new artists.

A decade later he's back with his fifth full-length offering. This time, he's not giving an apology or an explanation of what happened, Da' T.R.U.T.H. is back with focus, purpose, and a determination that is Love, Hope, War. With 12 hard-hitting, back to basics, message-filled tracks that impact not only your head movements, but your thought process concerning your faith and Christian conduct.

CDThis album is a Hip Hop lover's dream. With a recipe including all regional styles of hip hop and fusing pop and rock elements, it ensures that no matter your flavor there is something on the menu for you.

Setting off the album is "D.O.S." the battle cry anthem calling for the 'Death of Silence' of believers. Then Da' T.R.U.T.H. teams up in production with the creative J.R. for the earlier released "Hunger Games". There's even a stylized 'Reaping' segment infused throughout the song.

If you're looking for diversity in the album you'll find it in songs like the rock-infused, party-happy "The City" featuring B. Reith and "Real Love" where Da' T.R.U.T.H. once again delivers with the art of singing (all smiles here.)

Of course no modern day Hip Hop album is complete without features! Collaborations include Trip Lee, Flame, Thi'sl, and more —just enough to add excitement, and diversity, without turning it into a compilation album.

This is Da' T.R.U.T.H.'s second album under the Xist Music label and by far this is one of, if not the best album in his catalog. He comes out with the same fire that catapulted him into near instant stardom. From the concept, to the production, to the final exclamation mark on the last line, Love, Hope, War is an album to have in your collection.
