Envoy: The Envoy Project (Self-Released, 2000)

Contemporary gospel and rap from Tacoma, Washington featuring Seattle rapper Kid Sensation (Steven Spence, known here by his later moniker Xola Malik.) Written and produced by Spence, some of the R&B tracks have a similar appeal to fellow contemporary gospel groups Mary Mary and Trin-i-tee 5:7. Unfortunately, not much information on the female vocalists involved (two sisters and their aunt) but one Rhonda Kinlow continues to work with Spence and provided vocals on his 2016 album "Looking Up."
