Tru-Life The Journal: Volume 1. Album length: 17 tracks: 55 minutes, 43 seconds Street Date: June 21, 2005. Five full-length albums, two self-label compilations, plus a series of solo projects - does The Cross Movement ever take a break? The 4-piece hip-hop group of nearly 10 years appear to be some of the hardest working artists in Christian music today, and it continues in the vein of member Tru-Life, who just stepped out as the group's beat mixer and 1/4 of the group itself to release his solo debut The Journal this Summer. However, being that the project is labeled as Vol. 1 gives implication to a possible sequel in the near future and maybe even songs that surpass the material presented on this album. Nevertheless, The Journal provides plenty of block-rocking beats and smoothly-layered lyrics to make it a collecter's item for any dedicated fan of Gospel hip-hop.

Tru Life: I came home and was blessed enough to get with a young talent like Velous. We just vibed out and it was natural. We did the record at like, 9:00 in the morning, then after that I reached out to Rick Ross. I was thinking about who I can put that I was actually friends with that would make sense and would work on that record. So I don’t know, I just thought about Ross . Yeah, some of them may be on my album, I may take some of the old stuff. Music changes and elevates so much, especially hip-hop where styles change. The style of beats, the style of flow, the style of words, you know?
