Everything Must Go | Now Playing

Everything Must Go is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Andy Mineo's debut album: Heroes For
Sale. I found it on YouTube a couple days ago and thought it was a pretty great watch. For one, Andy produced a majority of his album while he was on the road--meaning while he touring with the rest of the 116 crew (Lecrae, Trip Lee, Tedashii, etc). You get to see what life is like for them on the road: what they do while touring; what goes on during, before and after shows; the good, the bad, and even the ugly of the road life at moments. You also get to see that these guys are just like us. As fans, we sometimes get the idea the people who make the music we love are superhuman. But in reality, they're just human. And this behind-the-scenes glance shows that truth, not just for Andy, but for all artists who live for Someone greater.
So, even if hip-hop/rap isn't your music, I encourage you to check out this mini-documentary. Even if the style of music Andy makes isn't your favorite; his goofy, fun-loving, and humble personality will more than make up for that (not to mention guest appearances by Lecrae and friends).

Who knows? If you don't already, maybe you'll end up liking Christian rap by the time the video ends. I've seen it happen. :P

God bless!

I've also included two of Andy Mineo's singles from his new album: Bitter and You Will. They both have great sound quality (for all you audiophiles like me xD) and even greater lyrics. Check them out too!

[Chorus]
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter... so take it all away
 
[Verse 1] 
Anybody know the feeling of rejection
Feels like you was kicked in your midsection
When you feel like you simply just lost your best friend
Everybody play the game of love, you ride the bench and
You start thinking she's chilling with other men,
And you getting jealous, start beefing, and harboring harsh resentment
I'm asking Jesus to keep me from being bitter,
Go scheming on twitter, get mad and post it on my statuses
Bitterness can make a heart numb
But hope is like a star you don't see it shine bright until the dark come
So don't just scoop the dust, remove the rug
If I got unforgiveness in my heart, then there really ain't no room for love
Plus it's stupid cause, I've been so forgiven
That if I hold a grudge, I don't show He's risen
But I know my sins removed since Jesus came
With no reason to forgive me but He did so I do the same

Sometimes things just happen in life that don't make any sense,
But, bitterness is a choice
 
[Chorus] 
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter... so take it all away
 
[Verse 2] 
Yea, I gotta tread softly
Don't wanna be a hypocrite plus I got some bitterness I wanna get up off me
Where should I start, well, I feel like I'd be sorta fronting
To say that when my father calls that I don't hit ignore button
It's probably cause we never kicked it at a younger age
I know when he's calling but I don't have got his number saved
I keep dodging him but I'm just being honest
All he wanna do is talk football and how I should play in college
I get bitter, kinda cold like the winter
It's so hard for me to forgive him then I remember that I'm a sinner
And Jesus forgave me and washed away my sins
When I didn't deserve it then I could forgive him
His power in such amazing love like when Jesus forgave the ones
That pinned Him up on that cross as he was hanging from it
Holy Spirit, teach me to be just like the Son
Remove the roots of bitterness don't stop until your work is done

God I don't wanna be bitter, teach me to forgive, let me see my own sin
[Chorus]
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter... so take it all away

Bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter, bitter, bitter
I don't wanna be bitter... so take it all away

[Verse 1]
When you see me I'm in uptown baby
What you know about me, oh
Nothing really, well let's change that
See I came back I took a break but now I break that
Formerly Known, yeah I made that
And them car-tunez every Saturday
Eat your breakfast, tell 'em play that!
Yeah I got lines like bar codes
Yeah I got jokes like Bart Simpson on bar phones (Moe's Tavern)
How you acting dumb on your smartphone

Fishers of men so I stay looking
Casting nets like I'm straight Brooklyn
Oh your life so hard
Why don't you face your problems don't Facebook 'em
Satan trying trying to make the straight crooked
With the porn sites but I ain't looking
I got bands that'll make her dance
That's a wedding ring for my wife – bling
I'ma say that twice – bling
Ladies if you ain't got one
Don't give him none, true love is waiting
And you so worth that
I know you heard some bull crap
But if you headed down the wrong path
Go ahead and turn back
You're never too far to be made new
They said you damaged goods but it ain't true
I testify to that I ain't lying Jack
You could check with my whole crew, whoop
[Chorus]
Y-O-U
Owe me nothing
No nothing [x2]
I know you will [x10]
Even when they say you won't
I know you will [x2]
No there's nothing you can't do
Nothing in this world too big for you
So when they say you can't
I know you will
I know you will
Even when they say you can't
I know you will
[Verse 2]
Er eh uhm uhm
Some say you can't
I say that you will
My sin, it cost a grip
But Jesus paid the bill
You don't believe in miracles
I show you why they real
Some rappers don't got skill
But somehow they got a deal - weird
I'm riding around in this airport
Flying around on my skateboard
And my glasses on like a straight dork
Oh your money tall but these days short
I love the haters so I pray for 'em
See them hearts we aim for 'em
So I tell the world and we stay touring
And we do it our way, we won't change for 'em
This ain't no fast food (Nope)
You can't order us
They looking so confused (Heh)
What's the formula?
We just really want more of God
Nah we don't really want more of us
'Cause He did it, we giving Him thanks
Even when they ain't awarding us
And them strip clubs money drugs
C'mon cous' you boring us
We heard it all before
And I'm still unimpressed with that sort of stuff
We were made for more though
With them award shows and you thank Christ
That lip service don't mean nothing
If you ain't about that life
[Chorus] 
Y-O-U
Owe me nothing
No nothing [x2]

I know you will [x10]
Even when they say you won't
I know you will [x2]
No there's nothing you can't do
Nothing in this world too big for you
So when they say you can't
I know you will
I know you will
Even when they say you can't
I know you will
