Why We Listened:
Every game has players that standout for their versatility. They may not be a superstar, but they make noise no matter what position they're in. Well the Christian Rap game is no different, and after listening to Derek Minor's PSA Vol 3, I think its safe to say that he is the premier utiity man in Christian Hip Hop.
The multitalented Rapper/Producer, put together a Mixtape that will spin on your playlist for a minute.
Why You Should:
The first thing that stands out is the way Derek Minor (FKA PRo) flows on tracks that he produced for himself. Show-casing the versatility that will keep him relevant for years.
The second thing that stands out is the features. Minor's choice of who to rock with makes this mixtape a classic. He took care to not only choose the right artist to feature, but he match those artists to the perfect song on the mixtape. "Sad Condishun" feat Dre Murray, Json and Viktory is a perfect example.They all killed it.
Also impressive is the variety of songs that were added to this mixtape. Personally I loved "I'm Focused", "In Spite of All", "Real Recognize Real" and "Sad Condishon". Each of these song are so different, but Derek skillfully rhymed on each one.
Derek Minor has set the bar high for artists by giving away (for FREE) a mixtape that like his new name...stands out!
