A couple months ago Reach Records released their annual summer playlist titled 116 Summer. The project features new music from some of America’s emerging and established gospel hip-hop artists.

In an effort to promote the album, the label has been sharing selected videos; with the latest being Nobigdyl‘s One Way. As this is one of the stand out tracks on the playlist it made sense that it was given a video. Plus, Nobigdyl is strong in both his music and his walk with God.
