Conquest - R.A.G.E. the EP

Boundaries. Secular artists don’t mind going beyond them and Christian artists stop a mile before them. However, every now and then-we get some Christian artists that don’t mind “going the extra mile”. One of those artists is Conquest. He took the world by storm with his single “R.A.G.E.” and literally turned the game upside down. He came out speaking on anger, revenge, sexual abuse and even properly put people in “scriptural check”. Some of you may be saying “Well, I have heard those subjects talked about before.”. This may be true, but you haven’t heard them delivered like Conquest has. He doesn't sugar coat with this song. He tells you how he “really” feels (the idea of cursing and killing) and it makes him so relatable. He also infuses rock into this track and shows that he isn't afraid of going out of the typical “hip hop box”.
He even takes that “in your face” style to a higher degree with “Subliminals”. He puts all of these “throw the rock and hide the hand” rappers in subjection with this track. He speaks on having enough integirty to not be so “subliminal” when your trying to “diss” or “address” people or other artists. He even goes on to say how many will think he’s “playing devil’s advocate” with this track.
Conquest doesn’t leave any stone unturned, as he even goes in on black stereotypes on “Unquestionably black”. He uses big name celebrity relationships to “figure out justification of accepting/not accepting interracial relationships”.This track affects both sides of racism-the attackers and the victims. He brings it full circle with “The Accused”, speaking on the judgement and condemning that the urban church does to everyone now.
Overall, this is a must listen. This is what hip hop should be about. This album isn't about being “lyrical”, but about the lyrics. This album is the voice of the streets and people. I found myself looking in the mirror after listening to many of Conquest’s bars. The production is great and goes outside of the typical beats you hear on the radio. If you miss out on listening to this project, it could cause “R.A.G.E.”. Spread the soup!
