To record this album, Beacon Light would get into a studio with a producer who would make beats while he made samples of different sounds. “Whatever [production] inspires me to write, that’s what I write to.” He started with about thirty beat loops and ended up with eight songs.
“Haters” was the first single from Lit and was produced by B-Coe. Beacon Light says that “Haters” had a very similar temple to Swoope’s 2014 hit “Same Team” and actually wrote the hook while listening to that song’s instrumentals. He says that he will choose to love whoever hates him, instead of returning hate back towards them.
“You can feel me choosing to love my haters but it’s not necessarily an easy thing to do.”
"O LORD” is a song that Beacon Light made to worship God through. In some Bible versions, LORD, in all capital letters, is used to replace Yahweh, the word that the Jewish people believed was too holy to speak, which means "I Am."
“For me, it’s like I’m calling on the name of the Lord even as I’m rapping.”
“Falling” is the seventh track on Lit and is talking about the hardship of falling back into a sin you have been trying to avoid. “When you slip up, when you dishonor God, when you let God down, it’s kind of like a thought of ‘I can’t keep doing this. I don’t want to keep doing this.’” It contrasts the battle of sin with a feeling of floating, as if without gravity, where you are free from your temptation and cannot fall.
The final song of Lit is called “Quite Like Me” and features a close friend, Steven Malcolm.
“'Quite Like Me' is really just about being yourself. There’s no one that is made quite like you and because of that you have a purpose and a unique call on your life.”
Beacon Light says that no matter what others tell you to be like, it is important to be happy being yourself. If a listener only had time to listen to three songs on Beacon Light's album, he would want them to hear “Haters,” “The Drop,” and “O LORD.”
Beacon Light and his fellow Infinity Music Group members are part of a church in Grand Rapids, Michigan called The Edge. Edge is an acronym standing for “Evangelism, Discipleship, Growth, and Empowerment.” He says that it is an urban hip-hop church.
