iNTELLECT 'The Mandate'

iNTELLECT Announces Newest Project The Mandate

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.” [John 15:12-15]

Christian Rap artist iNTELLECT introduces his latest project The Mandate.

When the Lord speaks into our lives, He does not casually ask us to follow the direction He is giving. Instead, He speaks with authority because the plans that He has for us are perfect. All things that He commands of us are for our own good. For iNTELLECT, it was a mandate to use the medium of hip-hop music to reach listeners who need to hear the gospel of Jesus.

This new nine-song album continues to push forward toward the goal that he has been given.

The Mandate is a master class in boom-bap music. Featured among the tracklisting are the singles “Sky High”, “Winning”, and the title track, all feature DJ Sean P. Additional features include Polished Arrow artists Procyse and Dex the Nerd Who Loves Jesus along with DJ Navin Johnson and DaLomonze. The record is the highlight of the hard work put in over the past year by the Polished Arrow team. It is a true testament to what modern indie labels can accomplish with vision and the discipline to remain focused on their priorities.

The Mandate releases on digital streaming platforms on May 5, 2023.

iNTELLECT "Sky High"

iNTELLECT Announces Latest Single From Upcoming Album

“Sing to the one who rides across the ancient heavens, his mighty voice thundering from the sky. Tell everyone about God’s power. His majesty shines down on Israel; his strength is might in the heavens. God is awesome in his sanctuary. The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!” [Psalms 68:33-35]

When people are at their lowest, they look up to find hope. You see, ascending to the higher ground helps you to get a fuller picture of the landscape. It may seem impossible to find the strength to climb out of the current situation; you may be afraid that you are too lost to find where you belong. However, all it takes is being able to spot that one familiar landmark to regain your confidence and move forward. 

iNTELLECT verbalizes the idea of being Sky High on the latest single from his upcoming album.

The Ohio emcee once again joins forces with DJ Sean P on the new single, Sky High, released across digital streaming platforms on March 31, 2023. 

Beginning with production by F-Plus, the record is made up of a boom-bap beat that is combined with a driving horn section sample. iNTELLECT flows over the track effortlessly, elevating the mind of the listener while emphasizing the Christian faith that he shares with DJ Sean P. Sky High is a record that will have heads nodding. It is set to be included on the upcoming album ‘The Mandate’. 

iNTELLECT has come into 2023 and established himself as one of the hardest-working artists in Christian rap. After forming the indie label Polished Arrow, he has steadily been a part of releases both as a solo artist and working alongside the artists that call the label home. There are no signs of slowing down. If you connect with the sound and feel of Sky High, make sure to follow iNTELLECT and Polished Arrow to stay on top of the latest releases.

With a distinct flow, iNTELLECT has used his gift to spread the message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ to areas throughout the Midwest. Drawing his inspiration from the Gospel and life experience, iNTELLECT combines biblically sound doctrine with hip-hop beats. Music and the Message have always been passions. “I’ve always loved hip hop music; the beats, the lyrics, the whole nine. At the end of the day, if it’s not God-inspired, it’s powerless.” And recognizing the call to share his faith, he continues to use his talents and gifts to reach a lost generation.


iNTELLECT, "Winning"

iNTELLECT Stays Winning With His Newest Single Release Featuring DJ Sean P

“As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me.” [John 6:57]

The game of life is always in motion. There’s no halftime, no timeouts, and no next games. Right now, this very moment is our shot. It is our opportunity to step up and impact the outcome. Do we have what it takes? Will we trust that we have properly prepared and our training will payoff? Some people wilt when the lights are on, for others, Winning is all that matters and they pursue that goal by any means.

Released on February 17, 2023, the latest collaboration between Ohio emcee iNTELLECT and DJ Sean P is an ode to those who choose Winning.

The record’s cover art features basketball legend Michael Jordan, and just like MJ, iNTELLECT is refusing to accept defeat. With a pocket that is deep in his lane, iNTELLECT flows over the boom-bap production of F-Plus like it is second nature while DJ Sean P brings his signature cuts that transform Winning from merely a “good game” to a championship celebration.

Are you in it to win it?

iNTELLECT, "The Mandate"

iNTELLECT starts 2023 with The Mandate.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17)”

When we make a decision, despite the difficulty that may be involved, we owe it to ourselves to see it through. After all, we are to let our “yes” be yes. Saying “yes” to Christ is to turn our back on our sinful ways and press on toward the goal. It is not a request, but instead an authoritative command. The old and the new cannot mix.

Ohio emcee iNTELLECT has put forth a decree to begin 2023 with the release of his record The Mandate, featuring DJ Sean P.

The Mandate holds true to the straightforward, no-gimmick characteristics that hip-hop fans associate with classic boom-bap records. iNTELLECT once again layers his distinct voice over high-quality production by F-Plus. The simple approach to the hook is a brilliant compliment to the verses and shines a spotlight on expertly-crafted bars and schemes. While people have been busy vocalizing a need to return to the roots of hip-hop, iNTELLECT has consistently released offerings that are the epitome of that desire. The Mandate continues in that tradition.

The Mandate releases to digital streaming outlets on January 6, 2023.

Feature: DJ Sean P

Emcee DIE-REK & producer Dj Sean P link for another golden era gem, A Better Place. What would you do to make the world a better place?

We all have scratched our heads at some point in our lives when faced with situations that seem impossible to overcome. Often overlooking that we got into that position due to some type of reasoning. Despite the reason, good or bad, there’s always a purpose. Don’t be afraid to take advantage and make the best out of those opportunities. We all have been given a sphere of influence, “a land” where we are to leave a mark and impose impact. Be strong and courageous, it’s moments like these that define us, and force us out of our comfort zones to be who we were created to be.
