I’m not a huge fan of gospel and inspirational music–or at least not the kind that’s labeled gospel or inspirational music.  I find most of my inspiration in the hip-hop and rock section and believe wholeheartedly in the gospel of gangsta rap.

With that said–I am digging some of the tracks on Mary Mary’s new album Something Big.

I popped the album into my car’s CD player and perked up when the track “Walking” came on I said to myself, okay I can dig it.  There were a few other tracks that I liked and overall I think the album is sophisticated and hip–almost too hip, lol with it’s secular sound but with religious and inspirational lyrics.

The album dropped this week Tuesday–check it out.
