Album Review: Hip Life is Dead by Christ Image Christ Image did what many gospel artiste wish they could do. Christ Image窶冱 debut album 窶廩ip Life is Dead窶 just as the name suggest comes out strongly against contempory Hip Life music which is quite dominate in Ghana. The 12 tracked album which features Counter Attack, Regardless, Too Deep ,OBJ, RS Key and most importantly the Holy spirit has 窶彝eaching the masses with the truth窶 as its core theme. Prior to the release of the album a few singles and videos had already been made accessible to the general public. Singles like 窶弩ho be the Don窶, 窶廩ip Life is Dead窶, 窶廰etter to Sarkodie窶 among others had generated mixed reactions from the general public. I remember very well when Christ Image told me to write an article on 窶廰etter to Sarkordie窶,I actually resisted. But come to think of it, on listening to the single over and over, I felt it窶冱 what the world is looking for. To begin with, content wise, Christ Image did what Lecrea would call involving the culture, the content if the album has a perfect blend of twi (A local dialect in Ghana) and English. Songs like Ghana Maakye speaks to the conscious of every Ghanaian. Going through the lyrics over and over again I realized everything was on point, the message was properly communicated, and now, the big question, why should Christ Image tell us Hip Life is Dead? Isn窶冲 that supposed to be the work of artiste like him? Infusing every genre of music with the word of God. He answers all this in a verse in 窶廩ip Life is Dead窶 窶徼here ain't nothing wrong with music except folks abuse it whenever they do it am not bothered about the style or the beat but the content that you spit anytime you speaking窶. In chemistry wise, Christ Image blended very well with all those he featured on the project, actually that is one characteristics of CI that you just can窶冲 do away with. He featured Tresh of Counter on 窶廬窶冦a keep Preaching窶,Igtheous of Counter Attack was also featured on 窶廛evil Stay Away窶 I personally thought Igtheous gave that song the variety we窶况e all been waiting for .And the all-important 窶廨reat Commission窶 one of my favorite, I personally like how each member of that crew adds the song to their project and I guess it would be on Regardless #MOT project. This is one of the few album I窶况e heard intermissions, believe me, they were really deep. For the critics not compromising on Ephesians 5:11 which says 窶廩ave nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them窶 I personally think 窶廩ip Life is Dead窶 ,does a good job by exposing the inappropriate content which is normally found in the Hip life genre of music but also it comes all out to condemn the Hip Life genre of music in a whole which I stand to be corrected. But in spite of all these, this album is a masterpiece, the engineers, producers and everyone who contributed in any way have done a splendid job. By @nkg116
