The takeback is a song which is very personal to me and is all based on true events that have occured in my life and that of my family's life. I am a christian hip hop artist and so I tied in personal experiences to my relationship with Jesus Christ to express my redemption and renewal in Christ. The video includes real photos of those family members and situations which I am speaking of throughout the song! I thought it would be more real and engaging for the viewer to see the images while listening.
The song is all about battling back against the enemy to take back all of the things my family has lost. Things such as goals, plans, marriages, in some cases even lives were lost. Now that I know who I am in Christ this is a declaration of my spiritual renewal and I'm putting the enemy on notice that it is redemption season. Through the saving grace and blood of Jesus Christ I am now equipped with the spiritual armor of God which enables me to engage in spiritual warfare in a way I previously had not been able to due to being spiritually blinded and stuck in bondage. I am no longer fighting with my flesh or my emotions but with the weapons provided to me by my heavenly father, knowing that He has His hands on me and guides my every step. This song is also about a man of integrity, one who stands on the word of God and a man who is not only unashamed of the gospel but courageous and bold in my declaration of victory through my Lord and savior Jesus Christ!
