Kirk Franklin is one of the most influencial artists in gospel and contemporary christian music and is probably the most influncial artist of the late 90's/ early 00's. He infuses R&B, funk, traditional gospel, hip hop, and pop music in truly innovative way. He has been criticized and judged for being revolutionary, for not keeping God in a religious box. This album is the best response to this critics, he brings forth and album bringing traditional gospel artists (Donnie McClurkin, God's Property and Fred Hammond) with contemporary christian artists (Crystal Lewis) and Pop and R&B artists (Bono of U2, Mary J. Blige, and R. Kelly)for a truly revolutionary album. He blends old and new and never loses his sense of humor or lowers his standards. If more gospel music sounded like this, more people of all ethnic groups would listen to it. He brings gospel music to non-religious people. His next album is more humble but none of his albums are better.

Kirk Franklin is a musical genius. No one has ever done what he has done: This man has mixed gospel music with hip-hop and r&b and made it sound oh so good. He created a way for the younger generation to be able to enjoy gospel music in an effort to get something from it. I just want to give him his credit, because his credit is due!

The Nu Nation Project is a really nice album. A lot of people would argue that it is way too secular, but people have always said that about Kirk Franklin. This album has it's slow songs as well as the up tempo songs. The hip hop and r&b influences are heavily included, but they sound great.

"Revolution" was the album's first release. I love the way this song begins, with Kirk reciting a Bible scripture. I think this songs production was a bit corny, but the message is very relevant: changing the world. It is a fast tempo song and received heavy airplay. "Lean on Me" was also released and received heavy airplay. It features appearances by R. Kelly, Bono, and Mary J. Blige. This song is a ballad which says if you need a shoulder to lean on, you can lean on me. This song gets hard to listen to sometimes, but it's a really good song. One of the album's highlights is "Riverside". This song has good production and great lyrics. The choir is great in this song. It speaks of meeting Jesus by the riverside. "Hold Me Now" and "You Are" are simply beautiful. They are both slower songs and they are very easy to like. I can almost guarantee that potential buyers are not going to like every song on this CD, but it is definitely worth the $. I wouldn't consider any song on this CD a filler. Kirk obviously put a lot of time in this album and it shows. GREAT JOB KIRK!

I'm proud of Kirk because he is just so wonderful at praising God. I'm a Christian of the United House Of Prayer For All People(located on east and west coast along up in the north and down in the south)and I love getting my praise on and serving God because I have so much to be thankful for and that is what Kirk's doing, just thanking God for his mighty acts(Luke 19:37; Psalm 76:10).Some people call him wild because he likes to move around all over the place. They call him a secualr artist, a wanna be gospel artsit, they say he's trying to turn gospel into rap and r&b,and they even say that he's only in it for the money. But I know that is just not true because he wouldn't have so many millions of fans around this revolving earth( and I'm one of his big fans). He doesn't care about any negativity that goes on among the non-believers of the world. Now, that's what you call strong and perseverant. I love his c.d. and all 4 of his other c.d.'s that he's made. I know that I'm not alone when I say,"Kirk, you can certainly make your fans get their 'Praise On' while listening to your c.d.'s."

So glad that I found this cd on Amazon. I lost my cd a few years ago--still had the case, but could find the disc. I am REVIVED today just like I was several years ago when I first bought it. The "old" Kirk Franklin music is by far better than his newer projects.

This latest release - The Nu Nation Project, is a great spiritual uplifting tool that'll reach believers of all ages. Check this out - there's "Something About The Name Jesus" for the seasoned saint, then there's "Revolution" which is definitely reared in our younger age group. This particular track will have some eyebrows raised, and some heads a-boppin' for sure, but the most important thing is to remember there's a message in the words. Although, he's often criticized for taking gospel music to another level, we must remember that God does want us to go out and reach, teach, and preach to all nations, and his stuff is definitely being heard by unbelievers (Kirk, we ain't mad atcha!!!!) Check out my favorites: "He Loves Me", "Hold Me Now", and don't miss 'The Car' it's hilarious. I personally can't condemn 'The Property', but I've seen more than enough rump-shakin --- It's great having The Family back!!!!!!! Much love.
