It’s crazy how God allows people to cross paths and when I say it’s awesome it is. Of course, my TL has been filled daily with Radical Conquest music grind since November and I am not mad at all. I became familiar with him through Twitter. And I am excited for this young man who just had his album release concert, 12.1.12 as a part of the Radical Departure Tour. His ministry is awesome and I have to share it with you all. The single, Radical Departure, which dropped 11.12.12 is blazing the airwaves right now. All the way from New York/New Jersey by way of Trinidad, give it up for CONQUEST and his story goes like this:
CONQUEST’S RADICAL DEPARTURE (AVAILABLE ONLINE STARTING 11.13.12.) – PRESS RELEASE
“Radical Departure” is the 2012 studio album from Trinidadian born, Brooklyn bred & Jersey based emcee/lyricist/songwriter CONQUEST. It is an album that signals the start of new musical & ministry chapter for the artist born Jason Andre Roberts. Created within exactly one year, “Radical Departure” finds CONQUEST in the present day preparing to ‘depart’ from the things that has plagued his walk with God & his musical vision in the past. In the midst of this re-invention he addresses everything from idolatry in & outside of the church, the ill effects of music & pop culture, racism, physical to sexual abuse, a tragic loss, love & heartbreak & everything else in between while stressing the need for radical evangelism for himself & others. The title of CONQUEST’S latest album speaks to his musical & artistic approach on it as well, it’s a ‘world where east-coast boom-bap meets metal core, where ‘trap music’ has an alternative feel, 80’s pop music is sampled with a classic hip hop drum break & techno & southern drum kicks join forces with double time rhyming’ all for a common purpose. There are no guest appearances on “Radical Departure” and for a re-introduction as personal as CONQUEST’S, it’s only right.
features the radio singles “YOU AIN’T ‘BOUT THAT LIFE” & “BRYANT’S THEME” as well as the buzz singles “R.A.G.E.” & “CONCEALED WEAPON”

Thanks for everything. I pray God blesses this ministry and opens many more doors.
Until next time,
