Intro 01:43
so lets rewind then  back when he was walking w/ blind men  back when he was falling behind man  back never knowing a love worth finding   he was never calling to find Him he was just going to find sin  he was so hopeless but right then  he was changed in a moment found the true friend  a King his God He took his sin he was told get in the boat so he climbed in now a fisher of men now w/ his pen  to give you the picture of Him when he rhymes man  he’s been forgiven more than times ten  and for Him he's been living with all his time spent  with a purpose he’s been given until his life ends   he found life when he was lifeless now his life’s His   a man stood in a pulpit told him what life gives  he bowed his knee in the bedroom now his life lives  he was born again now because of that life gift  thats the truth it changed what his life meant   now he’s sent he’s got a story to tell  a man on the radio had a story as well  He said I’d rather scare you into heaven then lull you to hell his eyes has seen the glory w/ his soul it is well  so thank you Dr. Rogers tho you never got to meet   a 15 year old kid who was lost in the street his life was changed by the words that you’d speak  that 15 year old kid that kid was me

Time Alone 03:02
I just need some time alone nobody ring my phone  can I get some time alone let me get up in my zone (get up in my zone) some days I’m an introvert wanna get away leave this earth broke down I’m getting worse  too proud to admit I’m hurt them days when I get bezerk  them days when life don’t work  i fall apart check my heart  hit restart hit  the dirt  man I’m a get this work  but I never seem to finish first  i need some help from what I’m dealt  my heart is in a hearse so mad i fin to curse that mess i didn’t deserve   I’m broken choking man Im a just let you work  I just need some time alone nobody ring my phone  can I get some time alone let me get up in my zone (get up in my zone) aint nothing going right but man Im feeling ok I’m just a mess up in my life im feeling ok  I got no sleep last night but man Im feeling ok  they wanna take me down this time  im just like no way  this life can’t get much worse  that’s why you came to earth  your Love and grace I didn’t deserve    but Lord I’ve been so burnt man up forgive this hurt but it never ever seems to work  the place where this occurred    Lord it was all up in your church thats why it’s hurting worse  they wilding on this earth  smile up in your face and smirk   while they stealing from the purse but I been assured that’s something I got to learn  to trust in you that’s just just what I’ll do    just while I wait my turn I’m like.. I just need some time alone nobody ring my phone  can I get some time alone let me get up in my zone (get up in my zone) aint nothing going right but man Im feeling ok I’m just a mess up in my life im feeling ok  I got no sleep last night but man Im feeling ok  they wanna take me down this time  im just like no way

You Know It 03:35
its like I got a fountain of youth its like I got a fountain of truth  so right when I’m down in the booth I got these lines in my mouth  like the rap was a crack in my tooth see i was just down for a few  down for the count but I’m back on the move  and I don’t know what to do  but the boy came up like a bouncing balloon I aint even down w/ ya crew I aint even down w/ ya rules I am just down w/ the truth  I am just down w/ the proof  that my Lord ran out of the tomb boom  stick a bounce in the groove  like I’m running up and down on the moon plus I got a mountain to move  so chew on that like a mouth full of food  but I’m too old to be feeling this young so why quit now when it just begun I pray my whole life for this moment you know you know you know it man aint you feeling allright? you know you know you know you know it plus its still about Christ you know you know you know you know it you just now living your life you know you know you know you know it well tell them what it just be like you know you know you know you know it 22 years in the game 22 years in the game I am not fearing a thing  i am not hearing you mane’  i am not fearing to change  they think I’m weird in brain  they think I’m weird in my lane  they think I’m weird and Im strange  but Im never blend in like a tear in the rain  13 w/ a necklace  trying to get the cream and a beam and a jeep and a lexus  and I was so reckless  running down a dream but never ever seem to posses this  then I heard a message  about a God who can turn it all around in direction  and then I learned the lesson  now every day the only thing that I count is a blessing but I’m too old to be feeling this young so why quit now when it just begun I pray my whole life for this moment you know you know you know it man aint you feeling allright? you know you know you know you know it plus its still about Christ you know you know you know you know it you just now living your life you know you know you know you know it well tell them what it just be like you know you know you know you know it God good devil bad all i had was a pen and pad all i got is the breath I have take this life and I give it back

about

On his newest release "Jonah pt. 2 ", veteran hip-hop artist KJ-52 finds the common ground with an uncommon style, reaching out to seekers and skeptics alike. 

”Jonah pt. 2" started as bonus songs that grew into a full blown project.  Featuring appearances by Datin, Zauntee, Canon & more, it introduces 10 taut songs with immediately memorable hooks.  This album gets real, has fun, and goes deep from beat to beat, marking a step forward in an already exemplary urban music career. 

Miami born, Tampa native KJ-52, (real name Jonah Sorrentino), broke through at a time when rap and religion rarely mixed. With his own mix of sharp wit and lyrical intelligence, he steadily led the genre into the mainstream, making the scene via guest spots on pop records (Newsboys, TobyMac, and Jeremy Camp) and amassing 6 dove awards & 750k career units sold. 

4 years later he’s still in the Guinness Book of World Records for his freestyle skills. That’s crazy, right? Not really... this is how he came up.

“Our world is broken. It’s gone nuts,” he concludes. “But there’s still hope for us all. We can know who God is, help each other out as friends, and seek His purpose for the next steps in life.” 

After thriving through the seamless transition between a cutting edge newcomer at the tip of the 2000's to one of today’s most respected and ambitious rap/hip-hop heroes, KJ-52 continues pushing the musical and lyrical envelope. This is his 11th release, and second crowd funded and self released indie project.

In addition to his latest independent album, KJ-52 has collaborated with Atlanta filmmaker Denver Bailey (TruTV’s The Carbonaro Effect, HGTV’s Flipping Virgins, and Netflix’s Rotten) to produce a documentary about the rapper’s life. 

It all started over a plate of tacos following a performance in Atlanta, Georgia, Jonah and Denver fleshed out what a movie about his life would look like. “We began shooting almost instantly. Jonah called me to let me know his Dad was in town, and this was the prime opportunity to catch an interview with him. I drove down to Tampa, and it all kind of snowballed after that,” Denver said. 

After shooting a majority of the documentary, they launched a Kickstarter campaign - for 52 days. The campaign exceeded the $10,000 goal by 20%, and post production began. The duo set out to make a rap documentary, but they admit there’s not a lot of rap in the movie. Somewhere along the way, the documentary became more about the human experience, and the documentary serves as more of an à la carte to KJ-52’s music than a behind the scenes. 

“The Jonah Movie” (Runtime: 52 minutes) will release along side “Jonah pt. 2” on February 15th. It’s the story of an unlikely candidate that followed the path God laid out for him. The film is an inspirational piece that transcends all demographics and will be enjoyed by any audience. “The Jonah Movie,” will be available on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital outlets starting with Vimeo on February 16th.
