Lecrae and Reach Records are setting the tone for music that can not be ignored. Andy Mineo is quickly making his case as one of the best and consistently forward thinking artist. Each Mixtape, EP, Album, Feature and Cypher cements his artistry and reminds us how good this kid can be!
With a God centered approach and boldness to make influential moves, Mineo and 116 Clique are unmatched right now. I hope they keep up this amazing pace!
Why did we listen?
We listened because of Heroes for Sale. We listened because of Saturday Morning Car Tunez. We listened because of Formerly Known. We listened because everything that Andy Mineo has released has been great music.
That is not even mentioning his long list of Banging Music videos!
Why You should too!
Andy did it again!
Neverland is a great album, pushing the limits of Christian Artistry. First Andy took the time and effort to document and release the work he put into this project. He released a series of videos showing a behind the scenes look into the album creation process. He let us see his ideas evolve and grow into a concept and then into music. Feels like we were sitting in on the creative process with Andy. In fact, it watching those videos makes me want to make music....which I don't do.

All that to say, Andy set us up for this EP. We grew to love the EP before he even released it.
Neverland has 7 songs, each song is unique and offers the listener a new experience. The Title track, Never Land ft MARZ, sets a tone for the album and helps the listener get a idea of where Andy is trying to take them.
All the buzz coming into the album was centered around the track You Can't Stop Me. The music is awesome and the sample of Martymar screaming "You Can't Stop Me!" was great. And Mineo killed it! This song did not disappoint.
My surprise favorite on the EP was All We Got Ft. Dimitri McDowell. McDowell's vocals really carry this song for me. Andy is great too, but the Chorus holds a weight that surprised me. I loved it.
I hope Andy Mineo keeps pushing the envelope on CHH. Sky is the limit for talented men and women who love God. And in Hip Hop there are hordes of fans needing men and women like Andy. Get this EP and enjoy it.
