Christian rapper KJ-52 has just released his new single "Gameface" featuring KB and Soul Glo Activatur. The song is taken from his upcoming album Mental which will be released on October 21.
"This is a world that seeks to break us down... in the game of life we have to be prepared. An athlete before he heads onto the field prepares himself for what he has to do that day by putting on his 'gameface'. This parallels what the bible calls 'the mind of Christ' and 'putting on the whole armor of God'.
Jonah Kirsten Sorrentino, better known by his stage name KJ-52, is a Christian rapper from Tampa, Florida. The "KJ" part of his name refers to his old rap alias, "King J. Mac," a name which he later described in one of his podcasts as "horribly cheesy." "52", which is pronounced "five two", not "fifty-two", is a reference to the Biblical story of Jesus feeding the multitude with five loaves and two fish, which is also sung about in his song "Push Up" from The Yearbook and in the "KJ Five Two" on It's Pronounced 'Five Two.
He was awarded the Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year for "Never Look Away" and Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year at the GMA Dove Awards of 2007. On July 28, 2009, KJ-52 released "End of My Rope", which is the first single for his album Five-Two Television. His song "Dear Slim" is based on Eminem's song "Stan" and is a sort of personal message from KJ-52 to Eminem.
