Nuwine – As Tha World Turns is actually a compilation album and not a Nuwine solo album. Some Nuwine fans thought this album was a Nuwine solo album which is clearly not the case. Nuwine bought a slew of artists to the table with the new wave of Christian ministry and entertainment. Featured artists included on this compilation are Lil Raskull, Stephanie Hogan, Chucky Jenkins, Breadman, Eternal G’s, Rock A, Trilogy, and Blackseed. The compilation was on the independent label Wine-O Records in 1998. This compilation was released on CD and cassette. The album was intended to promote the gospel and take it to the streets. The album was also intended to promote God. (The word of God.) Nuwine takes gospel to the streets with this compilation album. The album was never to glorify man.
A lot of Nuwine’s albums during his career as a religious artist were very overlooked in 1990s and 2000s despite having regional and nationwide distribution in the United States and Canada. As The World Turns is no exception in this case. This album, When Thugs Fly, Da Bloody 5th, Ghetto Mission, and 1998 are his most religious focus oriented albums to date. Nuwine comes with fresh production and settling Christian verses from the bible.
Mr. No Compromise has a message about the type of attitude that Christians should carry on a daily basis. Him and Trilogy are on the horizon with the bold truth. Trilogy tells his audience to be on the lookout! Be on the lookout for him!
Rock A produced Mr. No Compromise while Trilogy wrote the song. Trilogy was on the horizon. Mr. No Compromise comes with the Houston sound in term of music. The song itself is a bold dark song with a dark mood. His bold attitude is what sets the darkened mood even thought the song has a darkened mood itself. The song speaks for itself.
Nuwine gets very spiritual in the track More Than Just A Soap Opera. More Than Just A Soap Opera has a powerful Christian bible passage. The bible contents are only identified as Acts 2:17. Listen closely for scriptural background.
“And it shall come to pass that in the last days, says God. That I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams.” (NKJV)
Faith Walker was written by Chucky Jenkins. Chucky Jenkins tells us we need to have faith in God and faith in Jesus. Having faith in both God and Jesus will get you through the day slowly. Being the standup comedian that Chucky Jenkins is, he heals the souls with laughter with the comedy of his. It’s laughter that heals the soul on this song.
Nuwine and Lil Raskull get spiritual with the gospel on Wake Up and Die. Listen closely as Wake Up And Die has a Christian bible passage. Listen closely to Romans 6:6-7 for scriptural background. When you listen to this bible scripture, the underlying truth of the words cannot be denied. The religious subject of this track will confuse non-Christian listeners.
Desolate Lady is about a touching narrative about a misguided woman. This woman is trying fit into today’s society. She tries fitting in by society’s warped views on how women should be. Stephanie is the female vocalist who is bringing the R&B style singing in her vocals for this track.
I rate this album 4/5****!
