WATCH: LaToria- “What Is The Reason” Official Music Video

Check out the new music video from LaToria a christian hip hop artist who hails from Dallas, TX.  “What Is The Reason” is directed by Eshon Burgundy and produced in part with Good Look Media. LaToria infuses rap and spoken word and laces it to a melancholic musical track, to tell the story of how she began to dig her way out of a hurtful place and situation she experienced.  What I like about the song and what LaToria offers, is the fact that finally out of desperation she turns to God to find how to truly get the healing she’s been searching for.  I don’t know why often think that God has no place or say in our daily lives and decisions.

Latoria Wilson - picWhen we encounter a hurtful situation or circumstance, we always attempt to self-heal, and fix the situation ourselves, often times being led astray only to find that we are adding to the hurt and pain we are filling. LaToria shows that we try to find our solutions in people, places and things, only to end up destroying something beautiful.  LaToria expresses her thoughts in such a heartfelt way that the listener is fully engaged and can relate to her situation.  She explores an aspect her relationship with Christ, that many of us at times avoid or feel isn’t as important, and finds that although she has many questions for God, He first has a question for her!

Check out “What Is The Reason” Below and let LaToria (@LaToriamusic ) know what you think!

Watch: Lecrae feat BIG K.R.I.T & Ashthon Jones- “Mayday” Official Music Video

lecrae1New Lecrae video hit national television this week and to rave reviews, becoming the MTV’s favorite video.  “Mayday” is lifted from Lecrae’s Gravity album available now in stores and on iTunes! The song features mainstream rapper BIG K.R.I.T. and American Idol finalist Ashthon Jones.  I like the video, fits the urgency and somberness of the song and the cry to God for help.  My only critic is that I wish Ashthon wouldn’t have been singing to the camera.  I wanted to stay in the feeling as if I too were in the church with them as a fly on the wall. Directed by Motion Family check out the video for ya self below. What you think?
