'Kry Out' & 'Crack Music' - Jacob Izrael (video + free downloads)

I'm really feeling Jacob Izrael's leaks from his forthcoming free-to-download album 'The Glitch' [available here on 30th March] . The two tracks that have dropped are this one ('Kry Out') and 'Crack Song' [download them for free here]. Dirty South beats and Autotune aint usually my thing but this MC really speaks out on pressing social issues. Jesus set this example in His life and ministry and the Bible echoes it over and over.

For example, James writes about social action as part of our faith:

James 1:27 (New International Version)

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

OK so, just by writing a song and addressing the issues Jacob Izrael isn't physically doing something about it but he uses his voice to raise awareness of modern-day orphans and widows and exhorts us to take action.
