I cannot say enough about Marcus “Flame” Gray’s new album, “Captured.” Once again, he has put together an album that combines musical and creative excellence with profound theological depth. As far as I’m concerned, Flame is a genius, and this album is a must-buy both for hip-hop fans and for all those others who might need to broaden their horizons. My favorite tracks on here are “Nonsense,” “Alive,” “All I Need,” and “Move.” The cameo by MC Ryan Fullerton is also at the top of my list, so be sure to listen to “Daniel 10.”
Flame has produced a video explaining why he titled the album “Captured.” See below:
Flame is a graduate of Boyce College, and I know him as a student and friend. He is the real dealâ€”an artist who lives what he preaches. I couldn’t be prouder of him. And I am grateful to read in the liner notes of the CD that Flame believes Boyce College is “the best undergraduate school hands down!” I agree (of course), but it sure is nice to hear it from a student. For more on that, see the video below.
