Trap music is everywhere. Even if you're unfamiliar with the term, you've no doubt at least heard the music itself. All it takes is spending some time watching funny videos on Facebook or Vine (RIP), and you'll surely come across it. It's an easy genre in which to write songs, so it's being done to death. It's also one of the lowest forms of rap music, which makes it all the more puzzling that Lecrae of all people would release a full album's worth of trap music. But teaming up with producer Zaytoven, that's exactly what he did on his latest release, Let the Trap Say Amen.
Looking back through his discography, Lecrae has certainly had songs that had trap influence, which makes sense, considering that Lecrae has said that he has always had a soft spot for it. But those songs...

When Jurassic World debuted in 2015, the franchise had laid dormant for fourteen years before being awoken for a soft reboot. Jurassic World introduced new characters, a new take on a familiar concept, and had been helmed by a new director (for the franchise), all while taking place in the same world as the original trilogy that spanned from 1993 to 2001. Rising star Chris Pratt headlined the film alongside Ron Howard's daughter, Bryce Dallas Howard, who was also a critically acclaimed actress. In this film's story, a new park had been created on Isla Nublar -- home to the original Jurassic Park. And while the first park never got a chance to open, Jurassic World was a thriving business, bringing fans of the long-extinct beasts to the island to see them alive and well, thanks to mankind's meddling with cloning and genetics. But that film proved that genetic splicing and messing with nature wasn't going to end well, and the man-made Indominus Rex ended up being the main beastie to wreak havoc on our new heroes and the new park.
In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, we pick up three years after the events of the 2015 film. The park, Jurassic World, never recovered from the mayhem that ensued following the Indominus Rex's escape, and volcanic activity threatens to kill everything on Isla Nublar. (I guess the park would have had a shelf life of three more years anyway if it hadn't closed, huh?) However, much of Fallen Kingdom takes cues from the follow-up to Jurassic Park...

Over the course of her twenty-plus years in the Christian music industry, Plumb, aka Tiffany Lee, has run the gamut of styles with rock/pop string-soaked songs, children's lullabies, and modern pop, just to name a few. Her lyrics have always leant themselves to encouragement, and are one of the reasons for her staying power in the industry. These are messages that she has lived herself, along with her battle worn experiences, and they've served her listeners well. With new full-length album, Beautifully Broken, we see veteran musician Plumb rounding out her 2017 independently released EP, God Help Me, with six brand new songs. God Help Me was enough to leave this reviewer wanting more, and eagerly anticipating this 2018 release. However, one wonders what shape these new songs will take...

Here Be Lions is a self-described “ministry collective focused on discipleship, music and community" and is making their major label debut with Only A Holy God. The 12 tracks were recorded in front of a live audience and features songs written by the band with co-writes from Stu G (delirious?), Chris Quilala (Jesus Culture), and others. The songs swirl around the greatness of God and also His love for us in saving us from our sins, buoyed by a slow-burn rock worship sound that gives the guitar and keys equal opportunity to deliver a tune's hook.
Lyrically, there are plenty of cliche phrases and concepts. Overheard are mentions of mountains, oceans, power, several calls for the Spirit to "fall" on the worshipers, a song called "Wildfire" (you can guess what it's about)...
