A little something to represent my west coast roots.  I came from clubs and car shows (lowrider) early in my career.  This is a shot out to all my homies in the regals and oldsmobiles... (watch your speakers, the bass is about to drop!!)

OK, my boy CAM has sang on just about all of 116, reach records, tedashi, lecrae, etc... everything he sings is butter.  He sang a jingle for a rib joint, and that sucker got played on Jimmy Fallon, with Will Ferrell going crazy...  I say that to say Its always a blessing to get to work with CAM, but not just because his voice is butter... ;)  Its especially nice to work with him on songs with a meaning.

This song asks us all to question the concept of "falling" in love.  Do we really "fall"? We call it "falling", but why?  

"Why do we fall?...."  (my homie quetzal on violin is sic also btw)

Dameon Aranda, is 1/2 of the billboard charting rock group ARANDA (tours with Hinder, Staind, etc...) I had an anti bully song that needed some of that Aranda funk on it... throw up your rock fists in the air, as we encourage people to just be themselves! UBU! lets go!

Story

Kendall & I wanted a worship track that pushed the envelope a bit.  There is so much out there right now that is truly great! In no way were we trying to reinvent the wheel, but we wanted to try something we had only heard glimpses of.  For example, the combination of rap and hip hop is not new and we didn't do it first.  (I will say my buddy Scott Floyd was having me use hip hop and turntables in service, back in 02/03) but even then, what we wanted to do here different, is to integrate worship music and hip hop at a nuclear level.  

Marcy priest delivered an amazing performance! in the booth there were times i felt she was actually leading a service in front of thousands as she has done with charlie hall and others.     

I like to think if of it as if you were in the movie Tron, and they had church... this would be what you would hear as worship.  ;) "ALL" and others.    

This is our first attempt, at something like this and since its working live... I'd love to do more... I love how it came out!

This is a story of a question, "what is this Love?"  A man asks this question 3 times.  

The first time he asks it he is standing at the altar looking at his bride coming down the isle.  He sees her, his knees shake a bit & he wonders, "What is this love?"  

The second time he is in the delivery room holding his baby for the first time.  Unable to speak through joyous tears he asks, "what is this love?"  

The 3rd time he asks this question it is after replaying the loves of his life both wife and child, but this time in the context of watching a DVD of "the passion of the Christ".  Here realizes that is a story about a love as well. But this love is deeper still.  This love was sacrificial, A love from the Gospel. Realizing That God's love for him was strong enough to endure the cross,  he dusts off his bible, renews his faith & looking at the Gospel he is asking, "what is THIS love?"  ;)

This is a lyrical story of what it was like growing up with alcoholic parents.  Even when people fail you, at the end of the day there is a power greater than yourself -a force that provides a gravity to help you hold it down! Later i would reconcile with my mom near her death bed.  My Dad and i now enjoy a long distant relationship, & at least he knows his grandson who calls him grandpa California. "he that is in me is greater than he that is in the world" ;)

Excerpt from a 2013 forthcoming book, "Youth Are Not The Future" by Marcus Anthony Guinn & Chance Rush... This song is a declaration that youth are NOT the FUTURE, but rather they are a mighty influential NOW!

Story

This song was my 1st #1. went #1 in the midwest 7 weeks straight. This song went #15 in the country, back then with low radio, (basically one station: kokf 91fm, now 91online)& before the youtube days.  written in 99, & has DJ DL cutting live as it was part of "collection of demos" in 01.  This was pre Lecrae, before 116, And this song caused my deal with EMI to begin.  Its a little rough, i was freshly awaken, and kinda had beef with what i saw in the world i left, and the church as it was then. I had went from lukewarm to hot!

This song was an autobiographical song.  The words are true and speaks for itself.  There is a video on youtube for this song filmed by Kimberly Norris Guerrero & the Courderlane Tribe for "rockin the rez".  I get emails to this day about this song helping people forgive, and live on. ;)
