Are you ready for The Chop Chop
? The what? The Chop Chop: From Milk to Meat
is both an invitation and an exhortation from Christian hip-hop pioneer The Ambassador
to rally up with those who are hungry for truth and determined to mature.
As Hebrews 6:1 states, “we must progress beyond the elementary instructions about Christ and move on to maturity”. The current trend in our culture – and sadly in the church – is to ‘dumb down’ almost everything, but it is possible to do this to a fault. Some things require a little more intensity, commitment, and grind, and our faith is certainly one of those jewels. As the hip-hop generation, it is time to get our weight up. The Chop Chop
calls all hearers to take the meat of God’s weighty truth and “chop it up,” chew it until it becomes a part of you.
Building on the success of his sophomore solo project, The Thesis
, and his Grammy®- and Stellar-nominated
with group The Cross Movement
, The Ambassador follows with The Chop Chop – a creatively crafted album with captivating production topped with an uncompromising message that will challenge listeners, while exposing the authenticity and supremacy of God.
The Chop Chop occurs when we take the meat of God’s word, break it down, and share it to impact the world as messengers and models of transforming truth. The title track is a hip-hop banger that challenges believers to grow and develop by gathering with other believers and “chopping up” the scriptures to integrate biblical nutrition into our system.
Dramatic horns sound The Ambassador’s bleeding heart in "Anybody Hear Me?"
– a sobering track that exposes the problems of a culture no longer drawn to the rapper’s words and message, but rather the seductiveness of his swagger.
In the infectious "Gimme Dat"
, The Ambassador cries out for the fulfillment of redeemed passions – an overdose of satisfaction found in Christ, who provides all things for his people to enjoy.The Chop Chop
also features production by J.R., Official, Tony Stone, and Mac the doulos.
Release Date: September 23, 2008
