Last year, the indie hip hop scene was introduced to Young Chozen courtesy of his album "Class President," and fifteen months later we have G.L.O.W. This album comes with a particular purpose and message for today's younger generation: to G.L.O.W. or "Give Love Out Willingly." YC lays it over eleven tracks of fun, hope-filled, dance party music for today's youth to enjoy.
The album opens with "Right Here Right Now" and sets the tone for the remainder of the release. The format for the bulk of the joint is simple: Young Chozen spits the verses nicely, the hooks are catchy, and the result is something worthy of the dance floor. "Beat Of Your Heart" is up next, nicely following that aforementioned tone, and speaks of the realization that life is often hard but we need to understand how close God really is. That thought stands in the forefront while other tracks speak on topics such as being bold for Christ, the wonderful value of a Christian girl, and our strong need for our Maker to be close. The song "Stanky Face" reminds me of KJ-52 with the complete silliness of it, and "How We Do It" fails to bring anything exciting and makes one think "filler." "Faces" is the only truly serious spot on G.L.O.W. and is the kind of song that will give you goose bumps.
The closing title song spits "If love was murder then I guess I'm on a killing spree" and drives home again the idea of shining (or glowing) in a world of darkness. At times the album's hooks become repetitive and contain a few too many "whoa whoa's," and it can be said that most tracks are simply fun and lack depth or creativity lyrically, but this is definitely an album to be bumping at house parties and youth group outings alike. Young Chozen gives a great charge to give love out to others as Christ did for us. Those seeking a more God-driven album or simply something to dance to, this is up your alley. However, if you're not looking for something similar to KJ-52 or Group 1 Crew, this may not be for you.- Review date: 5/6/13, written by Kevin Hoskins of Jesusfreakhideout.com
