Brief us about the recording of this song.
This song was initially written back in 2014. However, the song wasn’t recorded until September of 2017. It was one of those songs that I had always placed on the back burner for whatever reason at the time, nonetheless, I wrote each verse during a pivotal time in my life.
Tell us the story behind the song.
This was one of the first “serious” Gospel Hip Hop songs that I had ever written with some real substance in the lyrics. In times past, I would write songs about God because I knew it was the right thing to do it but my effort was mediocre because my relationship with Him was mediocre. However, the moment I got serious about my relationship with God is when I began to produce and write lyrics with much meaning and scripture behind them. “Chosen” just so happens to be the first song I wrote that trail blazed my Gospel Hip Hop artistry.
