Papa San's 'One Blood' is a wonderful blend of music across several genres: dancehall reggae, hip-hop, and praise and worship. Papa San effectively collaborates with a variety of Christian Grammy-winning artists including Fred Hammond, Israel Houghton, and LeCrae maintaining each artists' unique sound, message, and style of music while adding his own distinct reggae flavuh. Throughout the album, Papa San ranges from singing to non-breathing, tongue-twisting reggae rap. Great album from start to finish. No FCC violations. Album reviewed by Christina Erwin, 'Lift Jesus Higher!' staff.
