The idea of him working a gospel album got us all talking and wondering what to expect, knowing that he is a and core rapper and not a holy one for that matter.

His list of featured artist were welcoming and intriguing at same time with names such as Fred Hammond, Patti LaBelle, Tye Tribbett, Charlie Wilson, Slade and more.
Now the legend is hosting us to a no holds barred real talk session on Youtube titled From Gangster To Gospel To Redemption, a fresh three-part YouTube series with the Urban Gospel music icon, Kirk Franklin.
