Irregular (real name Dusty Marshall) provided a culture shock to the largely adolescent crowd at the TCMI Center (Truth Christian Ministries International) with rap music that wasn’t laced with profanity. His set, which included songs from his second album, Merely A Glimpse, and beats by DJ 12 and J-Mac, was like a story of his life. He mixed animated rapping and spoken-word poetry, leading up to the show’s climax: Irregular rapped his testimony, using beats from Kanye West’s hits “Power” and “Gold Digger.” The song detailed his past drug addiction and how the program Celebrate Recovery helped him move on. (Now he is a leader there.) Most of the proceeds for the concert went toward scholarships for middle school students to go to summer camp. ★★★☆☆
