Why I Listened:
Why you should too:
The album itself is a great introduction to JGivens. He is a wordsmith who keeps you mind bouncing from one thought to the next as your head moves to the beat. Even in the title JGivens is playing with words. (El v Envy= LV NV= Las Veges Nevada). You will be mesmerized by the amount of words JGivens can fit into each breath he breathes.
JGivens is so good at what he does that is it hard to pick out favorite songs. El v Envy is not so much a collection of songs as it is a collection of stories about LV NV. Bienvenue might be my favorite song/story because we get a view into the mind of JGivens as he lives in a the midst of a city ruined by sin. Great reminder that God is enough for us and he is enough for everyone dealing with problems.
