IllumiNate, the NorCal rapper formally known as Nasty Nate, once recorded with the likes of secular artists such as: Fabolous, The Game, Snoop Dogg, E-40, Baby Bash, and more. In this new identity he has joined with a whole new set of artists in the Christian rap industry such as Sevin, Pyrexx, and Young Lyfe. His music still has that west coast flava' with the gangsta rap sound, but a fresh message. Similar to T-Bone, Gospel Gangstaz. No FCCs. Fave trax: 3, 4, 5, 8, Review by Kesha of Lift Jesus Higher! |
