On February 28th, Radio B released his highly anticipated project called “Jesus Never Wore A Suit”. This project took over a year and a half for Radio to curate. This project is said to be an escape from forced doctrine, the freedom to be accepted beyond the societal standards of dress code, skin color, and provide understanding that patriotism in America is often a disguised terrorism wrapped in a white image of Jesus Christ. The cover art of Jesus Never Wore A Suit was created by Young Flexico. The design is a clever way to think outside of the box and fit the metaphor that the project is. JNWAS is a sixteen track project that’s produced by J.L. Hodges and mixed and mastered by AGM brother Michael Millions.
One thing that Radio did during this project was to allow a wide array of people be featured on the project. It’s a perfect balance of Richmond rappers like Easalio, Henny L.O., and Nickelus F to singers like Angelica Baylor and Sam Reed to even a Richmond poet, Breeze The Poet. On the project he even had some very important people on a track together. The introduction of the project, Cursing In Church, starts off with a sample of Oliver Dollar & Jimi Juels song Pushin’ On followed by Breeze giving an emphatic monologue. The transitions from Radio spitting to Breeze talking poetically really makes Cursing In Church an excellent song because the chemistry is on point. Another highlight of the project is Sweet Repentance feat. Angelica Baylor. Radio leaves a powerful message within the bridge of the song, “…we all should have one chance to go crowd surfing… cause some people feel they never seen no love at all… everybody should have somebody to catch’em when they fall…“. That bridge in a song called Sweet Repentance is interesting to hear. It tells the listener that we can still love and forgive you regardless of how ashamed you are of your old actions.
The only thing that I dislike about the album is how some of the tracks sounds like it’s off of his previous project Sunday’s Best. The first time I listened to the project in its entirety, I thought the project sounded similar to Sunday’s Best. Yet Sunday’s Best was the buildup to the long awaited project so I can see why I heard the similarities. However, the second listen definitely helps separate the two projects apart for some people that are familiar with Radio’s discography. Overall, this is another well done Radio Blitz project that definitely reflects on the amount of time that he put into the project. One can say that he might have put in more than ten thousand hours into it.
