Ready for War is the debut album for Kelly Glow. Released in 2002, it was an experimental project slightly ahead of its time featuring faith-based rap lyrics over live band instrumentals. Under the vision and direction of emcee Kelly Glow, several musicians from East Cleveland came together to create a unique sound they called “hip rock.’ Hip Rock is a rare, hypnotic fusion of high-energy Hip-Hop, Rock, Soul and Funk music created for the glory of God. The album features Carl Gamble on keyboard, Sam Wilson on drums, Prophet on bass guitar, Willie Johnson on lead guitar and sultry vocals by Divina Maxine. In addition, there are guest musician appearances by Frankey Franklin, Joe Rohan, and Fred Patton. Whether you swoon to the melodic sounds of “Only One for Me” head bang to the punk rock vibes of “Christ the King” or swing to the jazzy grooves of “Freaka for Jesus” you’ll feel inspired to join the light movement.
