Need a little motivational turn up to get you through the week? Inspirational rapper Derek Minor has just what you need in his latest single "Until I'm Gone." The single talks about Minor's roots and being thankful for his success and serves as the third single from his upcoming album Reflection. To supply that extra layer of praise-worthy soul, Minor enlists BJ The Chicago Kid to sing all over the hook. "I've been in so many places / And I see pain all on my people faces / So I'mma tell 'em about your love until I'm gone now / Until I'm gone now," he sings.
"Until I'm Gone" talks about the many places Minor has been, from his humble beginnings in Tennessee to New York City, and the video follows Minor and BJ to both locations. Directed by Will Thomas, we also see throwback clips of Minor rapping in church mixed with scenes of the two musicians hanging out with locals rocking out to the track. The video ends with Minor standing in front of the pulpit as a teen, reminding us that this is his ministry.
The single is just in time to usher in Minor's Reflection, which drops October 14. Along with BJ, the album also features Chrisette Michele, Janice Gaines and more. If you like Minor's gospel, you can pre-order Reflection on iTunes and watch the video for "Until I'm Gone" right here.
