As I ventured into "Dangerous" territory I tried to prepare myself for the unknown. KJ-52 has won several awards over the last decade of his music ministry, one in which before this review I had been a stranger to. Born as Jonah Kirsten Sorrentino, KJ-52 came into the world in 1975 in the warm state of Florida. Easy street was not the location of his childhood however, which you can discern through his lyrics. Unlike secular artists of hip-hop/ rap KJ tries to encourage people instead of focusing on negative aspects like anger, perversion and revenge.

On April 3, 2012 the world was given the opportunity to purchase and begin to understand the intentions of KJ on his eighth studio album, "Dangerous". The truth behind the music and outcome he hopes it will unleash is for us, as believers to get away from complacency. For those who are struggling in faith to commence a new resolution and for those who don't know Christ to take a chance on Him.

The first title hit was released in March and has a very similar sound musically to what you would hear from Toby Mac, who KJ has worked with. However, when you sprinkle his rapping it is easily distinguishable. The song starts off as a person singing to someone they care tremendously about, who is backsliding in their faith. He then turns it around on himself reminding all of us we all have things to work on within' ourselves.

There are many dance/electronic numbers that are also great ministry tools for youth growing up today. I also feel you could give this CD to anyone under the age of 25 that listens to secular hip-hop and they would be surprised. "It's going down" is about people getting together and dancing because they are happy. Towards the end you hear someone singing, "He's the reason why I jump around".

KJ-52 has been around for the last 13 years,but that does n't mean he's slowin' down or declining in quality.Simply put this is one of KJ's most solid releases.Here's a track by track break-down:

1.Goin' Down.8/10.This is a high-energy party track that gets the party going with a strong bass-driven beat and KJ's usual incredible rapping.

2.They like me ft.Lecrae.10/10.This an outstanding track with two of best rappers alive on it!The beat has some nice guitar work in it to keep the energy and song movin'.

3.Superhero.8/10.KJ droppin' some superhero names to draw the picture that Christ is the only hero.

4.Dangerous.10/10.A top track and one of my favorites,Dangerous has nice acoustic and string elements that make this rap about forgiving and letting go of bitterness a highlight.

5.Facemelt.6.5/10.Ah,the first and only snag.KJ's usual rock/rap song,for some strange reason,stumbles a bit.It's not really bad,but the guitars aren't that hard and their faded.

6.Shak'em up ft.This'l.8/10.KJ and This'l are aggressive and potent as they spit rhymes about being powerful in the world for Christ.

7.Do The Bill Cosby.7/10.KJ comes out doin' an impersonation of Cosby that launches this song into it's funny first verse,that sets up this comedic song.

8.So Far Apart ft.Emily of Shine Bright Baby.9/10.A strong song of reaching out to an ex-girlfriend that's struggling with the world.Melodic back-up by Emily aid the song.

9.Brand New Day.8/10.With the dance craze flooding the music scene these days it isn't surprising to see KJ make an attempt.The thing is though,he succedes!He raps well to a well put together song.

10.Speed That Light ft Rhema Soul.8/10.

I love this album. It doesn't have as much silliness as most of his others, which is a good thing in my opinion. Just great Christian rap music. If you enjoy KJ-52, buy it!

First, let me say that I've been sleeping on KJ-52 for years. I don't know if it was his cd covers or what, but I was always under the impression that he was a corny wanna-be. That was until I heard him on Canton Jones' "Dominionaire" a while ago. I was: "who was that cat with tight rhyme scheme?", and found it was Tweezy. After kicking myself for ignoring the dude, I picked up Dangerous.

I have an eclectic music taste and listen to many Christian genres (Hip Hop, Rock, Jazz, Reggae), so Dangerous' diverse musical mixture was a good match for me. He's definitely not the "best" rapper out there, but he's pretty good. And while he doesn't pack a whole sermon into 16-bars like Shai Linne or Ambassador, his lyrics are on point praising the Most High and are uplifting. Some hard-core rap aficianados may bristle at the inclusion of Rock/pop tracks on a HHH cd, but I enjoyed the diversity. And quite frankly, based on the track "Facemelt", I think Tweezy could probably be just as proficient as a Christian rocker as he is in the rap game.

Dangerous is definitely an unexpectedly good cd for me, and I encourage anyone looking to expand their horizon beyond the typical HHH players (Reach/LMode/Xist/CM) to check KJ out!

KJ-52 (Pronounced “Five-Two”) has been in the rap game for well over a decade, now. It’s no wonder then that coming into the new album Dangerous KJ has had plenty of time to establish himself in the eyes of many of his fans and critics alike. If you’ve been following KJ across his many albums then Dangerous will not come as a surprise to you. The album follows after several established patterns that KJ tends to weave through his releases. He mentions how he sounds like Eminem, he makes fun of himself, and he takes the message of Christ and mixes it in through a few serious and a few out-right silly songs. This is not to say that KJ doesn’t take his sound any place new. It’s just that the new is hung on the framework of those basic patterns KJ loves going back to.

Over all, Dangerous is a solid album. Unlike 2007’s The Yearbook, which ventured one too many times into what could only be described as a pity party over VH1’s attack on him, Dangerous comes across with a power and confidence that fans have come to expect from his tracks. In fact, this album seems a little more focused than his past works. This may be due to the fact that this is by far KJ’s shortest album. Whereas past albums have had upwards of 24 songs, Dangerous checks in with just 12. Though some may feel like they are getting less bang for their buck with a shortened track list, I feel that this actually helps bring what is more important into focus and doesn’t allow for as much wandering.

The record begins with the track “It’s Going Down,” which gives off a good “party-starter vibe.” KJ uses this track to both re-introduce the listener to his particular style of flow and simultaneously to recap the themes from several of his past songs.
