Review: KB - Tomorrow We Live
Whereas the artist we encountered on Weight & Glory was confident, cocksure and comfortable in his lane, Tomorrow We Live’s KB has more to prove.
Lecrae songs played in Louisville strip club
As Lecrae’s fourth studio album Rehab blared through a Louisville strip club, a bouncer told Rachelle Starr that he heard the Christian rapper, whose music she had just introduced him to, curse.
“No, I can assure you,” Starr laughed, “there’s no cussing in the album.”
When your pastor says your album needs work: Ruslan’s ‘Do For One’ forged from failure
There is no better way to start a conversation with an artist whose album drops soon than to tell them they didn't reach their potential on it.
D-Maub is everyone's favorite feature. He has truly been gifted with the ability to body every work that he steps up to. As far as I can recall, there hasn’t been a feature spot I’ve heard that I haven’t enjoyed from this Cincinnati native. When D gets on a track he is guaranteed to overwhelm listeners with his lyrical prowess. For the sake of “total beat dismantlement” one could refer to him as the Busta Rhymes of Christian Hip-Hop, but he’s truly in a league of his own.
NUMEROUS AWARD WINNING ARTISTS TO BE FEATURED ON SOUNDTRACK OF UPCOMING INSPIRATIONAL FILM, I'M IN LOVE WITH A CHURCH GIRL, DEBUTING FALL 2011, THROUGH RGM RECORDS
Soundtrack to feature a stellar ensemble, including four-time Grammy Award winner Israel Houghton, India Arie, Mary Mary and Third Day, and T-Bone.
Debuting Fall 2011, Reverence Gospel Media will release its debut soundtrack through RGM Records, to follow and support the upcoming feature motion picture, I'm in Love with a Church Girl. RGM Records will also release high profile soundtracks for each upcoming RGM film project and will release full length albums from T-Bone and other profoundly inspirational artists.
Sharing the vision for the upcoming record and movie projects slated for release through Reverence Gospel Media, I’m in Love with a Church Girl director Steve Race comments, "Movies speak to the mind but music speaks to the heart."
Producer and writer Galley Molina states, "We are paying close attention to the entire music element of this movie. From the scoring of the film by award winning composer Bruce Fowler to this multi-platinum artist soundtrack. These are the hottest groups in Christian/Gospel music and they are all joining together to make this soundtrack one of the best to date. Movie or no movie, this soundtrack is a STAND ALONE project.”
The 2-disc soundtrack features original music inspired by the film and includes artists such as Israel Houghton, Mary Mary, New Breed, TobyMac, Fred Hammond, India Arie, Beckah Shae, Anthony Hamilton, Third Day, Ja Rule, Adrienne Bailon, T-Bone and many more. Newcomers Shari B and Amanda Shelby will also make their singing debut on the soundtrack.
I’m in Love with a Church Girl is the first film from Reverence Gospel Media and features an all-star cast including Ja Rule (The Fast and the Furious, Shall We Dance), Adrienne Bailon (Cheetah Girls), Stephen Baldwin (Usual Suspects, The Young Riders) and Grammy Award winning artist, producer, performer, TobyMac in his debut cameo acting role.
The film depicts a unique story centered on a retired high-level drug trafficker Miles Montego (Ja Rule), whose life has gone legitimate yet he remains loyal to his tight knit circle of friends and former colleagues in the business. When he meets Vanessa (Adrienne Bailon), a church girl in every sense of the word, he must decide whether to hold onto his old ways or let them go. Throughout the film Miles and Vanessa are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other.
In addition, I’m in Love with a Church Girl is scored by music composer Bruce Fowler (Dark Knight, Lion King) and legend jazz trumpeter and pianist, Arturo Sandoval also contributed to the score.

Paid Dues now 6 years strong, will be adding Lecrae to the 2012 lineup along with Wu Tang Clan, Odd Future, and Hieroglyphics, offering a chance for Lecrae and Reach Records to continue their focus of being missional to the hip hop culture. We're excited when Lecrae gets opportunities on this type of platform as it is one more step to breaking down the label barrier between Hip Hop and Christian Hip Hop, making it easier for other Christian artists to gain press and exposure in the world so we can all be truly missional with the music.
