  1. Peace Sintax, BIG-ups on the “We Do Big Things” cut… I so wanted to sample that quote the night of the S.O.t.U. Address. Great minds think alike, peace&love!-Spits

  2. It doesn’t get any more hip hop than “we do big things,” right?? When he said it, I was like whaaaat??? Thanks for coming through.

  3. i’ve been a fan of MarsIll for a while now, and stumbled upon a link to this site through Greg’s blog. I gotta say man, this has gotta be one of the most amazing things i’ve found in a long time! i’ve been workin with ywam for a while, doin missions work, and one of the things i picked up was actually keeping up on whats happening in the world so that we can pray effectively for our world! Man, this is def one of the BEST ways i could ever imagine to keep up-to-date on my news! haha. You are what I would describe a Kingdom-minded artist to be, and will be describing to a lot of people believe me! Be blessed man, His Grace with u.

  4. Yow, I tried clicking the links but I think it just ends with your homepage. Am I the one who has only observed this? Or this is just an error in my computer. I have tried it many times but still ended the same.

  5. Hey Maxwell, thanks for coming through. For most of the above links, if you click on it, it directs you to the blog entry for that song. So, it sort of looks like the homepage but in fact you’ve gone to that specific day’s/song’s entry. Scroll to the bottom and the song is there. Hope that helps!
