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)”.

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.”

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.
