iNTELLECT & Procyse, "The Big Picture"

iNTELLECT and Procyse Are Challenging Listeners To Look At The Big Picture

“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,” 2 Corinthians 10:5

When we are transformed by the truth, we can no longer attempt to adhere to the views of the world. We now understand there is a larger purpose that demands both reverence and submission. As our hearts are changed, the narrow scope that is seen by the flesh is not able to satisfy the Spirit within us.

Faith-based hip hop artists iNTELLECT (Ohio) and Procyse (Colorado) are raising a banner with their latest single, The Big Picture.

“Seeing the big picture has been the sole reason behind what we do,” explains iNTELLECT. “God gives us a different perspective on everything. He provides us with purpose.”

Procyse added, “We have been called to make an impact and this single is another step in that direction.”

DJ Navin Johnson joins the boom-bap duo adding his signature cuts to the production by F-Plus. The Big Picture hits digital music platforms on January 27, 2023.

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.

iNTELLECT "Words of Wisdom Remix"

iNTELLECT Asks “What Does the Word Say?” with the Words of Wisdom Remix

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” – James 1:5

The word of God is filled from start to finish with wisdom from the universe’s creator. 66 books that guide those made in His image. When we are following Him down the path He has prepared for us, there is no reason for uncertainty or doubt. In these moments we need to simply ask, “What does the Word say?”

Words of Wisdom Remix finishes off 2022 with a fresh take on a previously released record from Ohio’s iNTELLECT. Originally featured on the album ‘Stateside’ by producer 6th Floor, the track stood out. It is the only Christian rap song selected for the project. Following the inclusion on ‘Stateside’, the remix version features brand-new production by F-Plus.

iNTELLECT showcases fellow artists Yasad One and DJ Navin Johnson as the trio uses their gifts to direct listeners to the source of all knowledge. Riding effortlessly on break-beats and boom-bap drums, the Words of Wisdom Remix has its own identity from its original inception. While iNTELLECT and Yasad One attack their verses with confidence and conviction DJ Navin Johnson incorporates record scratches to add a level of nostalgia. “This one will definitely get the heads nodding!”

Words of Wisdom Remix releases to digital music platforms on December 9, 2022.

About iNTELLECT

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. He draws his inspiration from the Gospel and life experience. His music combines biblically sound doctrine with hip-hop beats.

Music and the Message have always been a passion for iNTELLECT. “I’ve always loved hip hop music; the beats, the lyrics, the whole nine. But at the end of the day, if it’s not God-inspired, it’s powerless.” Recognizing the call to share his faith, he continues to use his talents and gifts to reach a lost generation.

iNTELLECT and Procyse, "I'm So..." featuring TC

iNTELLECT and Procyse Look Through The Eyes of a Broken World With Their New Single I’m So…

“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom – Proverbs 11:2”. Man may be God’s greatest creation, but at the same time the most foolish. It seems that society is determined to prove that we are smarter than God. We’ve gone so far as to pervert the things that are beautiful, to drape that which is lovely in a covering of shame. “…Your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

Christian rap artists iNTELLECT (Ohio) and Procyse (Colorado) are no strangers when it comes to collaborating on records. The duo have teamed up on several releases including 2021’s joint EP ‘The Art of Grace’. I’m So… is the first offering off of the reworked version of the project that features Florida’s TC.

“Procyse and I really wanted to revisit ‘The Art of Grace’ EP and revamp it,” explained iNTELLECT. “We wanted to give it a totally fresh sound that reflects the direction that  we are heading in as we continue to collaborate. We plan to re-release the EP soon.”

Available on digital music retailers beginning November 4, 2022, the new version of I’m So… showcases high-level lyricsim and expertly crafted cadences. The boom bap drum pattern is accentuated by subtle strings and complimentary samples. It is a perfect bridge between golden era hip hop and modern era approach. I’m So… is a record that will connect with a widerange of hip hop audiophiles.

iNTELLECT, "Supreme" featuring Mitch Darrell

iNTELLECT Shares a Declaration That There Is Only One Who Is “Supreme” On New Record

Scripture provides warning that there will come individuals who will make themselves like the Most High (see Isaiah 14). They will foolishly attempt to establish themselves above the true and living God. While they may be able to fool some, the reality is that their perceived power is nothing more than a fallacy. Every one of them will have to bow before the Supreme Lord of Lords.

With his newest single, iNTELLECT drops a clear reminder of God’s place in this world and where man ranks:

“False prophets, they make profit, while people pray to the universe as if it has the power to reverse the curse/ It’s the power within, they say, with their hearts full of pride cause judgement has been delayed”

iNTELLECT once again partners with fellow Christian hip hop artist Mitch Darrell (North Carolina) on the perfectly executed Supreme. The duo float effortlessly on top of production by Quincytones as traditional boom bap sampling captures the ear of the listener.

Supreme released to digital music retailers on September 16, 2022.

iNTELLECT shares New Kung Fu remix.

In the dojo of hip hop, emcees engage in lyrical sparring sessions to not only develop their skill sets but to showcase their abilities to all challengers.

It is the drive of competition that is rooted deep within the music’s foundation. At certain moments in time, there emerge individuals destined to change the hip hop landscape and bring about a New Kung Fu of sorts. For Ohio’s iNTELLECT, a combination of steadfastness and Gospel-centric focus continues to shift the culture.

In 2021, iNTELLECT collaborated with fellow CHH artists Mitch Darrell and coreywordsmith to drop the acclaimed single New Kung Fu. The classic boom bap hits listeners like a roundhouse kick to the face. The elite bars and punches caught the attention of producer Yasad One who connected with iNTELLECT, coming with a proposal to remix the record.

On August 19, 2022, the New Kung Fu [Yasad One Remix] was released across digital music retailers.

With heavy drums and a dusty vocal sample, Yasad One gives his spin on New Kung Fu. From the beginning, the banging drums and rough vocal vibe perfectly with the rhymes of iNTELLECT, Mitch Darrell, and coreywordsmith. If you’re looking for something that is gritty with an east coast feel, this is it!

More from iNTELLECT.

2022 has been building up to this exact moment for Ohio emcee iNTELLECT.

Last year the Christian rap artist released his concept album ‘Ephesians’ which was created to support a sermon series at his local church. While it was well-received in the broader hip-hop space, the project was still created with others in mind. Since the beginning of this calendar year, iNTELLECT has traveled a more personal road.

With his new album Living Weapons, June 17th, he realizes something that he has thought about for a long time:

Living Weapons is a project, as an artist, that I’ve always wanted to do,” explained iNTELLECT. “It’s a boom bap experience that invokes nostalgia, but also comes with a sound and message that are relevant to this generation.”

The album takes traditional boom-bap and blends it seamlessly into today’s sound.

Project production includes Newselph (“New Kung Fu”), F-Plus (“Honor the Teacher”, “Prison Break”, “Manifest Remix”), and Brokenfinga (“I Got Somethin’”, “The Intersection Remix”, “It Ain’t Over Remix”). iNTELLECT continues to show why he is seen as one of Christian Rap’s most consistent lyricists today. Not only does he spit hard-hitting bars, but he features an amazing lineup of independent faith-based artists as well. Features include Mitch Darrell, TC, Procyse, coreywordsmith, Minister Squad, D. R33D, DJ Navin Johnson.

Living Weapons releases across digital music platforms on June 17, 2022. It includes the acclaimed singles “I Got Somethin’” and “Manifest (Remix)”.

man-i-fest [verb]: display or show (a quality or feeling) by one’s acts or appearance; demonstrate.

Ohio emcee iNTELLECT is never one to hide the motivation that drives his creativity.

In the world of Christian rap, where motives are questioned on a daily basis, transparency is key. It is not enough to claim what you’re about, you have to be willing to demonstrate that you live out the new life found in Christ.

iNTELLECT, and fellow artist Minister Squad, released the original version of “Manifest” in 2021. Today, the overhauled Manifest Remix hits digital streaming platforms with a re-imagined sonic backdrop that highlights the elite lyricism on display from its predecessor.  

“I wanted to give the song a different vibe,” explained iNTELLECT. “The remix definitely takes the song to the next level.”

Featuring a beautiful blend of boom-bap and carefully selected sampling, the remix holds the essence of the original record while infusing it with new energy.

New life, new sight, work in progress/ What God manifests is what the world detests…those lines are the foundation of the song,” shares iNTELLECT. “It starts with the work that God is doing in us and that work becomes obvious to others as we live the way God intended us to live.”

With a sound that is straight out of Shaolin but a message that edifies, iNTELLECT has crafted one of his finest records to date.

The Ohio emcee has cemented his place within Christian Rap.

Bars…check; delivery…check; consistency…check. There is little room for doubting the quality, from top to bottom, when it comes to the art that iNTELLECT shares with the world.

For the past year, not only has iNTELLECT continued to level up his game when it comes to rhyming, but he has also developed into a skilled engineer in the process. I Got Somethin’ may well be the ultimate example of this development. The record is already acclaimed, being chosen as the highest graded song of the night on FiveTwenty Collective’s “The FiveTwenty Feedback Show”. This speaks volumes, especially when you consider the collection of songs that it was a part of.

Adding to the quality record are fellow faith-based hip hop artists Mitch Darrell and TC along with DJ Navin Johnson. Both TC and Mitch Darrell are familiar collaborators with iNTELLECT and both deliver on the high expectations their past work has created. Broken Finga does an amazing job setting the tone with a quality beat, showcasing high-level production.

“I found this song very entertaining with good theology and gospel references…I’ve got no complaints here,” – xeroforhire from The FiveTwentyFeedback Show.

Christian rap artist iNTELLECT is following up his concept project ‘Ephesians’ with a new remix EP.

‘Ephesians’ serves as a soundtrack to a sermon series. It’s packed with deep, theological records inspired by the apostle Paul’s words to the Ephesians.

The Ohio emcee quickly discovered ‘Ephesians’ is one of the most important endeavors he has undertaken.

Now, iNTELLECT partnered with Iamlenflow, the producer on the original ‘Ephesians’ EP, to create Ephesians Remixes.

Ephesians Remixes is a four-song revisiting of the records “Chosen”, “Grace On My Mind”, “It’s Worth It”, and “Be the Light”. It includes features from Mitch Darrell and Minister Squad.

“With the remixes, we wanted to take what we thought of as the best songs and give them a more edgy vibe,” explains iNTELLECT. “These remixes take the original songs to a whole new level.”

Ephesians Remixes drops on February 18, 2022, across digital music retailers, including Spotify.
