“I can’t pretend like I’m better and fine. I’m not. I’m getting better and things are going to be fine,” Tedashii says. “But, I make music for where I am now.” Indeed his new EP, This Time Around, can be summed up in one word: Growth.
The first single, “Be Me” is a boisterous and sonically anthemic record that music fans can blast aloud in celebration of boldly being who you are supposed to be. The second single, “Jumped Out The Whip,” is a left coast party that will literally transport you to Pico and La Brea. And the current single titled, “808,” is a hip-hop slow jam. Scoring points with the wife, Tedashii says, “it’s a love song for my bride, but for any woman a guy wants to share that sentiment with…” A part of the journey to Tedashii’s growth as an artist was collaborating with music producer GAWVI, one of the most prolific music producers of now who’s worked with everyone from Pharrell and Rodney Jerkins to Trip Lee and Lecrae. Tedashii worked with several producers on this EP, but he found a special connection with GAWVI.
Recorded in Atlanta and Dallas, these 14 tracks don’t just focus on his recent loss, they are inspired by all the events that have shaped Tedashii as an artist and a man. This includes his experiences in high school as a football-playing, poetry-reading, trombone-wielding member of the band and his conversion to Christianity during college. Meeting his father for the first time, feeling like an outsider, faith, family and fatherhood -- it’s all in there.
Hidden below the surface of our seemingly authentic exteriors lie our deepest pains, struggles and inconsistencies. The unregenerate clothe themselves in the best the world has to offer, showing no signs of turmoil, while the transformed boast in the impenetrable armor they are privy to. But is it all a charade?
The Man Up album, in conjunction with the Man Up campaign, seeks to answer that question by offering the soundtrack to the movement! Lecrae, Trip Lee, Sho Baraka, Tedashii, Pro, KB and Andy Mineo are calling men in the Hip-hop culture to true biblical manhood summed up by: leading courageously, rejecting passivity, accepting responsibility and pursuing humility, through repentance and faith in Christ.
Ever since man's fall from grace in the Garden, humans have had a condition of instability that has led him to a destructible end. Satan found a way in the Garden to get Man to believe that his Identity was incomplete. Even today, God's creatures are duped into thinking that there is more to be desired in us than fellowship with the Creator. READ MORE
Before You Die Gospel Tract w/CD "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." -Act 4:12 Have you ever wanted a resource to help share the Gospel of Jesus Christ that is relevant to today's culture? "Before You Die" is written and designed to speak into the hearts of the urban and hip hop culture who are not followers of Christ. One of the challenges of sharing the gospel with others is presenting it in a culturally relevant way to the listener. This tract was designed to do just that. By taking the reader through a graphic representation of the gospel with clearly written text, we pray that the Lord will be pleased to use this resource in a way that brings others to Christ and glorifies His name.
