By the time Trip Lee released his 4th studio album, The Good Life, the long-time Reach Records favorite was at a crossroads. He was battling a serious health condition and preparing himself for pastoral ministry. When he announced he would be taking a “break from music” on a short behind-the-scenes video for TGL, everyone seemed to be caught off guard.

Humans, in general, are habitual creatures. So, when something comes along and "rocks the boat", we are faced with a tough decision. Either we embrace the new or fight to revert to the old. Walk with PRo as he takes you on a journey through his life altering experience. Without furter ado... Redemption.
Check out the first single, "Leadership" by Flame (listen), from Lamp Mode recordings' upcoming compilation, "The Church", to be released June 8th, 2010. Lamp Mode understands both the seemingly controversial nature of "the Church", especially among the Hip hop contingent, and well as the biblical imperative of the Church's importance.

Deepspace 5 is back with another classic crew album with all in house production and raps. When you have a crew of emcee's to represent, you get diversity in flow and production. This is the first offering from DS5 on the newly formed Mega Royal Records, headed by Dallas' own Rob Viktum, who is known for his Viktumized remix albums. This is Deepspace5's fourth crew album, even though each individual artist and the many sub crews have put out too many albums to name or try to number. When you listen to a group album, ideally you end up having your favorite rappers and sounds that stand out with each individual. This album is fresher than many of their previous albums, which may be a result of having several years both together and apart to hone their skills as emcees and producers. From Playdough's stylistic singing to Listener's "talk music," styles vary and are complimentary. The crew brought seasoned raps full of metaphors and emotion. This album is a stand out this year.
