Je'kob does not shy away from weighty topics in his newest work. In the midst of controversy surrounding Christian artists and their stances on origin of life, Je'kob's central theme on the album answer the questions, "How did we all get here? And what is our purpose?" Through rap artistry, Je'kob tackles many core issues surrounding our generation, including Intelligent Design, Abortion, Human Trafficking, and Fatherhood.

This week, Je'kob will be on the "Intelligent Design: The Future" podcast from the Discovery Institute, hosted by Casey Luskin. Likewise, Dr. Stephen Meyer, renown author, philosopher, and Intelligent Design proponent, will be on the "Jam the Hype Live" syndicated radio show and podcast hosted by Chris Chicago, which can be heard on dozens of FM stations around the globe. The fusion of urban culture, music, science, and theology is the type of discussion that Je'kob wanted to spur with the album.

About Save the City Records
In 1997, Derek Hoiem had a vision to assist musicians in local churches, and having been a software designer for Microsoft, he knew that the digital wave would bring massive change to the music industry. After investigating music business models, he found that record labels were necessary but needed to change by adopting the indie wave. After recording and working with indie artists for about 5 years, in 2008, Hoiem launched Save the City Records as a national brand. After garnering critical acclaim on iTunes and media outlets, Save the City Records landed a distribution deal with Provident Distribution. Over the last several years, the company has picked up more artists who have been featured on iTunes, played on national radio, ranked on the Billboard charts, and featured at national music festivals.
