Go2 (Lerish and Vizun, aka. Rick and Dale) combine hip-hop with Christian praise and worship to create a powerful musical outfit. Go2 caught the attention of the rights campaigner and political leader Jesse Jackson, and shortly thereafter they were requested to come and perform in Chicago at the Rainbow PUSH Coalition Headquarters run by Jackson and in support of civil rights and social justice. They have been building a large support base since then: they were nominated for Best Holy Hip Hop Artist at 2009 Gospel Choice Awards, have topped the Christian charts and have even shared a stage with Ludacris.
The duo met in church where Rick was a worship leader and Dale was a minister in training and sound engineer. They formed a friendship out of the mutual ambition to make hip-hop primarily but also because their faith was so important to them and music felt like a great way of expressing their feelings towards God and the ones they loved. Go2 believe that Jesus has blessed them with an ability to make unique music, which can help to spread their message.
‘Nothin On You’
About “Nothin On You”
I wrote this song with a very simple message in mind, nothing can nor should take the place of God in your life. I didn’t write this song to be against having fun or any of that, I wrote it because I myself had let things like money, houses, career and other materialistic things become more important to me than God. The first verse of this song is about a guy who came to a cross road in his life, in a night club, and realized that the things that he looked for to bring him joy no longer worked. He needed something more. I feel this song is very relatable because I think we’ve all had that eye opening point in our lives where we said, “there’s got to be more to life than this. “ This song has a very danceable beat; it reminds me of the famous line-dance style culture. Some songs that were very popular in this same vein are The Macarena, The Cha-Cha slide, The Wobble, The Cupid Shuffle and
The Electric Slide. What sets this song apart from the pack is the universal, relatable message embedded in this urban contemporary hit.
