Female rapper, writer, preacher and poet Jackie Hill Perry is gearing up to release a new album, Crescendo, which is being pegged as a "fearless" record showing both strength and sensitivity.
The 14-piece collection released by Humble Beast, Fair Trade Services is set to reveal Perry's personal, spiritual and artistic journey to this point. Crescendo will highlight the St. Louis native's sense of brokenness in which she entrusted to God's care.
Perry, 28, wasn't always a Christian. After years of living a promiscuous lifestyle she gave her life to Jesus in 2008, and her religious beliefs prompted her to denounce her attraction to women. Perry's website states that she was "saved from a lifestyle of homosexual sin."
Crescendo will further explore her growth. The album includes her first single "Fall Away," along with the anthem "Woman," "Mustard Seed," and "No Ways Tired" in which Perry was inspired by the gospel classic by the Rev. James Cleveland of the name, "I Don't Feel No Ways Tired." The track "Lamentations" features Latifah Alattas of Page CXVI and will reportedly give listeners insight into the lowest points in Perry's life.
