Crime & Consequences
Phanatik returns with his unique underground classic sound with his sophomore release Crime & Consequences- a much needed wake up call intended to unglamorize sin in many of it’s popular forms and show it for what it is, or better yet, what it produces. All sin is pleasura... Read More
Our world is witnessing the breakdown of society in America and in other places around the globe. The trusted institutions of government and religion have come under considerable scrutiny as leading figures in these arenas have betrayed the trust of those they serve. Crime is on the rise, in many cities, violent crime. The news overwhelms us with reports of these events, while white collar, corporate crimes often go unannounced and sometimes un-prosecuted. But law codes are not the only thing being broken, God’s heart is also breaking as His world lives contrary to His word. David knew this when he wrote in the Psalms, “against You oh Lord only have I sinned.” Of course David’s sin involved others, but he understood that had he not been able to sin against God, he would have never sinned against his fellow man.
Fortunately David repented, though he still had to live with some of the consequences of his crimes against God and man. In a world like ours that glamorizes crime and criminals through movies, video games and music, this album deals with the sin of man and looks at the concept of sin as crimes against God.
The consequences are obvious though we don’t always connect them to the displeasure of God. At first it will seem as though the album is strictly dealing with petty street crimes, but eventually the idea of God being the offended judge of all types of crimes will ring out.
Finally, a rap album that doesn’t just account for crime, but counters it with an eternal perspective. Crime & Consequences.
