Craig Allen a.k.a. Son of God
The EP "It's a New Life Thang!" is the first professional project recorded by Craig Allen in 1996/97.
Craig's vision for doing gospel rap was birthed in his heart in 1991 during his mission's trip to London. For the first time he heard some powerful gospel rap from some west coast groups by the name of SFC (Soldiers for Christ) & ETW (End Time Warriors). After planting Highland Church in Tooting London,
England in 1991 Craig
was inspired to write and record gospel rap and began to perform it many
different places throughout NYC & the Tri-State Area NJ & CT
(parks, churches, group homes, juvenile detention centers etc.) His
preaching of God's Word was strategically combined with the powerful
sounds of his band's Live Music. At the time of this projects release the songs were only available by cassette. At that time in 1997 most people listened to music
on cassette tapes, not CD's because CD's average cost of $15.99 was more expensive. Craig sold this EP of 6 tracks for $7. It
wasn't till recently that some of these amazing songs were converted to
digital MP3 files and uploaded here to this site for your musical
enjoyment. This EP was recorded at Record Prophet Studios in the old ELKS LODGE in
Elmhurst, NY. The
power it took to pull off this project was backed by God & the
mighty prayers of saints that Craig teamed up with over the years.
The the dark forces of NYC was no battle for what GOD has done through
Craig's music ministry which has gone beyond the streets of Queens, New
York to many people around the world. These songs will not only
entertain you but they will inspire you to grow closer with God and in
the knowledge of his wonderful plan and purpose for your life. Most of
all remember that the same great power that created the entire universe
want's to also give you a New Life full of Power & Love.
If you choose to leave a tip for the downloads of this music that would be highly appreciated as it will help me to continue recording new music to share with many around the world. Thanks in advance!
