W.L.A.K, or We Live as Kings, is the collective work of a group of MCs on Christian rap label Collision Records. Solo artists Swoope, Dre Murray, Alex Faith, and Christon Gray all released their own albums on the label before joining forces for the self-titled W.L.A.K. debut in 2013. The album features the artists going through devotional rhyme routines interspersed with Gray's soulfully sung R&B hooks. Production credits include huge beats and inspired instrumentation by Wit, Dirty Rice, Joseph Prielozny, and group member Swoope. Generating much buzz, the anthemic lead single "King in Me" made the rounds on the Internet a few weeks before the release of the album.
