New York, NY, United States, 2008/09/23 - “Spiritual Maturity” themes this Masterpiece: It Challenges Hearers to Take in the “Meat” of God’s Word and Allow it to Become a Part of Who We are Called to Become.
Building on the success of his sophomore solo project The Thesis and his GRAMMY and Stellar nominated release HIStory with group The Cross Movement, The Ambassador follows with The Chop Chop—a creatively crafted album with captivating production by J.R., Official, Tony Stone and HOTHANDZ topped with an uncompromising message that will challenge listeners, while exposing the authenticity and supremacy of God.
“The Chop Chop: From Milk to Meat” is both an invitation and an exhortation from the GRAMMY, GMA Dove and Stellar nominated hip hop pioneer and co-pastor of Epiphany Fellowship to rally those who are hungry for truth and determined to mature. “The current trend in our culture—and sadly in the church—is to ‘dumb down’ almost everything. Some things require a little more intensity, commitment and grind, and our faith is certainly one of those jewels,” states The Ambassador.
With special guest appearances by LeCrae, Trip Lee, Da’ T.R.U.T.H. and Stephen the Levite, The Chop Chop calls all hearers to take the meat of God’s weighty truth and “chop it up,” chew it until it becomes a part of them.
Fueled by the momentum of an infectious single “Gimme Dat!,” The Chop Chop has been called “a project that fires on all cylinders.” Already embraced by broadcast Gospel outlets, The Ambassador most recently performed “Gimme Dat!” on TBN’s “Praise The Lord,” and is set to appear on TV1’s “The Gospel of Music with Jeff Majors” and INSP’s “Mixx Masters Lounge.
