The rapper and producer of hip hop known as Daddy Abe has released his debut LP album, “From Alpha to Omega.” The album comprises 15 original songs for an approximate total listening time of one hour, making for a comprehensive introduction to this powerful and popular rap artist on a mission. It has been proudly published on the Raised Records independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Booming, grooving, and spirit-filled from its core to its overflowing brim, “From Alpha to Omega” is easily one of the best hip-hop records to ever be released with a gospel message.
Daddy Abe cites as main artistic influences Mos Def, Black Twang, Jurassic 5, Klashnekoff, Phi Life Cypher, Talib Kweli, and Damian Marley. His sound and style lean heavily on razor-sharp rhymes and lines, but benefit much from bass-heavy beats and loops which recall the old-school rap artists but also blaze new trails in significant ways. “From Alpha to Omega” by Daddy Abe blends hip hop, rap, dub, reggae, dancehall and gospel music so seamlessly that it's suddenly surprising a record like this has never been made before.
Also notable are the other talents featured on Daddy Abe's “From Alpha...” record. These include St. Matthew (of Jamaica) Simon Dan (Nucleus Roots Crew) Testament AKA Homecut, Jonny Alpha (Knew Jeru'slum) Khazown and Saint (of RepEntertainment) Danny Gough, and turntables by DJ Leach.
Asked to comment on the themes of his new record, Daddy Abe writes that “God's love is unconditional. Everybody has an opportunity to walk in the blessing. It's not based on your ability or how good you are. Righteousness is a gift. Miracles are for today. Heaven can be here and now. Religion is dead. Jesus is alive!”
