“ I really enjoy the dialogue at the beginning of the track. The rapper narrates the song at the beginning which lets listeners knows what the song is about. He delivers the lyrics with the aid of a backing vocalist. Both artists harmonise well together and work in unison to create a distinctive melody for this track. I feel the emotion in the artist's voice so the lyrics do not come across as superficial. I feel that he is very genuine and he himself feels the lyrics. The lyrics are written so that they provide this track with a rhythm which I think is a very cleve thing to do when writing lyrics. I really connect to these lyrics already and the fact that listeners are connecting to the music is what will bring in sales. The whole track is minimalism at its finest and does not overdo it on the production side.Even though the lyrics are serious, I feel that both artists manage to make it light hearted for listeners so they do not get bored.”

“ This is perfect. I love the honesty in this flow. I love the message. I could listen to this a lot. I love the songwriting, the perfect rap. I love the flow of the rapper being easy to understand and patient. I love the leadership of the artist. It's ironic he mentioned that word in this song in opposition of his being a leader, because that's exactly what he is. The poetry is powerful. The melody of the vocalist is incredible, She has amazing vocals. I can feel the chills or goosebumps from the singer. This is amazing. Perfect gospel rap song. I love the production as well. A clever track that doesn't say gospel music in the track, but doesn't denounce or oppose it either. A nice soulful experience in the entirety of the song from the raps, to the singing, to the beat. A different, sort of old school rap approach, but yet updated and definitely respectable skill in it. Nothing critical to say at all. Great work team. Keep grindin.”

““This song floats in and drops a large sea of guitar notes and hip hop sounds. The song seems to reflect a beauty and dark presence that is jumping and shuffling with rap power. The song showers in and runs with memories that are built into the very gritty and tough drum parts. This song runs and shakes with solos that are flying upwards with a spectacular flow of spirit. When the song cooks up some pleasant and courageous lyrics the music and melodies match in the chorus. This is a song that has soul and refreshing notes that are drilling into the chorus. Where I would be most charmed and pleased is in how the second verse describes the lessons and morals contained in the song. This is music that plays through and pushes a resounding amount of positive values and loyalty into its rhymes. This is a song that is loving and fresh with tons of chords driving with a spiritual blessing. This song holds a smooth and fantastic design that shows gospel hip hop notes and style.”

““This is wonderful. From the beginning with the female vocal, to when the rap comes in. The beat is jazzy and funky and interesting. The lyrics are great, the chorus really pops. I'm not sure how big Christian rap is but I know it has a place and a specific audience. I love all the little musical breaks. This is mixed really well and it 's extremely enjoyable.””

““I really liked the female vocalist 's background singing at the beginning of the song. The male vocalist has a very good voice and the lyrics had good meaning. The music had a good balance between instrumentals and computer sound. I like the slow, gentle rap that the song had. The part where the female vocalist sang was very good and she had an amazing voice. I would love to hear more songs from this artist.””

““This was a great beginning, definitely a song that I would listen to again because of the message that it is bringing upon. This song had a very nice melody present of the claps to keep the song on beat. The vocals were very expressive with his feelings. I really thought that the song was heartfelt and was something that I could easily listen to over and over and over again. The lyrics of this song were amazing, very consistent and deep because of the sad message brought across. This song had some really strong lyrics and everything was balanced very nicely! This song is defiantly one that I would listen to again because the artist is very talented. I'm seriously going to look this song up and get it on my iPhone or something, it 's really that good! Dang, this song is very, very deep, I just love it! The lyrics are amazing because they have such a strong message! The rhythm and the instruments played really are great and go extremely well with the vocals and lyrics.””

The combination of the really lovely singing with rapping is unusual and definitely draws my attention.This song would be great to sort of break the barrier between rap and religion, which makes the lyrics very powerful.””

““This song is kinda like a "soft rap" type song if there is such a thing. The beat of the music is slow to medium in pace and the pace of the male singer is about the same. It has a fairly steady flow to it. Not really my type of music, however not bad either. Some will like it, some won't.””

Unknown - survey

““The introduction to this song is amazing. I loved the giggle and then the most beautiful melodious female voice. The vocals are awesome in this song. The lyrics are outrageous and well written. I love both the male and the female vocals and the contrast they make against each other. The vocals are in perfect harmony with each other. The slow tempo of the music is excellent, I like the heavy beat of the music alongside the acoustic guitar. The la la la of the female vocalist is gorgeous. Overall, the vocals really shine in this song.””

““the intro with the vocals of the girl is nice. once the beatdrops it has a smooth feeling with a bit of a gangsta side too it. nice chorus but simplistic. Religious rap isn't much of my dig but i like it””

““I'm not a huge fan of the hard rap. I do, however, enjoy that the lyrics are very clear and create a story. The arrangement of the three different vocal levels in the song were great. I enjoyed that there were different melodies put into different sections of the song. Also, the different pitches of each of the singers went very well together.””

I loved the way he narrated his story it it will make the fans relate even more. Everything about this song to me was flawless and the only I can say is keep good music like that coming.””

““Beautiful melody. The drums, and the bass, with the harmonious voice on the hook. I think that this ranks highly as Christian Rap, but doesn't have the limitations. This is also a very good hiphop track. I love the hook and the artist has a smooth delivery. I can see this as an interchangeable track that would do well in either genre of music.””

Unknown - Survey

““I like the risk you took on a christian song with more of a pop/ rap genre. your voice really fits this style of music. This song really catches your attention because its not like normal christian songs. its more upbeat and more awakening. its more appealing to the audience. i really like how you separate the rap from the actual song. i also like the chimes in the background. the echoing also fits very well with this song. overall good job!””

““This song begins with a soothing acoustic riff with a spoken word male vocal. This then transitions into a male rap verse over a soft rock style instrumental. Many current rap songs fail to utilize other genres of music to rap over. This song uses a unique instrumental for its rap style. This creates an experience that most listeners do not get to have often. The male vocalist that raps the verses has the perfect tone and tempo for the instrumental. The transition to the female vocals for the chorus allow for the best mix of styles. This song is very good and will be very popular in the hip hop scene.””

"Up All Night With You" is such a great track. Your lyrics are so real and expressive. Love the vocals, too. Keep 'em comin'

“Good work, well presented, great message. I appreciate that you are clear and precise in your delivery. You are still keeping your soul in the feeling, but you are not resorting to slurring or using phony technique to make people listen to you. The female vocal is excellent as well. Production is nice and smooth. Mix is well balanced. And this bass player likes the smooth bass line. Thanks!”

“I like the intro, the background music works really well, thankfully this continues into the main body of the song unlike so many in this genre. The chorus is a really nice change, and is definitely the part of the song that will stick in my head. The production and engineering are tight and I think the song is ready for release. I'm not a fan of this kind of thing usually, but this is definitely one of those songs that I could listen to more than once”

“notice that you say this is a first recording for a new rapper. I must say I'm quite impressed. This is a very well written, composed, performed and produced piece of music which I thoroughly enjoyed. Excellent dynamic instrumental arrangement and spiced up with lots of variety which keeps the track listenable throughout. Nicely mixed and sounds clean, fresh and original overall and the song has a great commercially appealing feel to it. A stunning first effort. This song has mainstream value awell as being radio friendly and could be very successful given the right amount of exposure in the correct places.”

“The song was greatly done with the guitar and synthesizer sounding with melody and backing up tuning vocals. The song is a R&B type hip hop and the lead singer is a male person who had a vibrant sounding strong and effective voices that could create variation in music too. The recording quality of the song was great. The lyrics and singing of the song was lovely and romantic in emotion. The total song was listening nice and good song in a word to say.”
