The Nu Nation Project

Kirk Franklin designed The Nu Nation Project as a revitalization of contemporary gospel, a way to bring it to an audience accustomed to the slick, funky innovations of hip-hop and rap. It's an ambitious project, and one that's not too far removed from his earlier records, simply because it finds him adding R&B production techniques and the occasional grandiose flourish, such as the cameos from R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, and Bono on the admittedly stirring "Lean on Me." Occasionally, the album feels as if Franklin is pushing a bit too hard for the mainstream audience and all that entails (namely, superstardom for himself), but the end result is every bit as engaging as his previous records, thereby confirming his status as one of the true visionaries in '90s contemporary gospel.
what more can i say?
I`ve been a kirk fan since my early teens ,when he used to rock the hightop fade and the multi-colored jacket....(I hear you JOSEPH). his albums/cd`s draw on raw worship of the LORD OUR GOD.....i listen to many gospel artist, but i always find myself doin a web search top dig in the crates for an old kirk song. Thank you !JESUS! for giving the thought process to those who created apple/itunes....i can now search in one place for everything...and while in this vein...THANK YOU !JESUS! FOR KEEPING MY FAMILY, GIVING ME STRENGTH TO CARRY ON AND THE DESIRE TO SEEK YOUR FACE (AS A DEER THAT PANTETH AFTER WATER!)..oh yeah good job kirk..lol....THE LORD THY GOD FIRST!...everthing else last.
