You may know Malice from the platinum selling hip hop duo The Clipse. Malice recently came to Christ, so please keep him in prayer. Malice is releasing a book 'Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked' the book 2/14/11.
** If you do your due diligence and research Malice or go to his website, be advised that he does have existing pre-recorded music with cussing in it. Additionally Malice has a film company and they do video shorts and acting in the video contains cussing as well. His message now is the gospel, and again keep him in prayer. I have personally spoken to Malice on several occasions and his heart and passion is one for Christ and I'm extremely optimistic about the change he will affect in the hip hop industry.

Dwayne Tryumf is set to release his new compilation album entitled: ‘Beginnings’ on February 22, 2011. The first single from the album called 'King Jesus' will be available on Amazon MP3 & iTunes on January 11, 2011 which features seasoned UK artists G-Bag & GEMS. The album is a collection of 6 tracks previously unavailable, including the original version to ‘So Amazing,’ and 6 selected tracks from the 2006 Ghetto Scripture album that Dwayne removed from online and physical sales in 2010 because he was not happy with some of the content on the album. All of the songs were recorded before 2009 but some of the production of the music ranges from 1999 to 2010.

In 2011, our goal is to ensure that Christian Hip Hop is curated, chronicled, and cultivated to enable Christians that like hip hop to have an alternative to the garbage that is pushed out in the mainstream. Additionally, we want to provide a better platform for artists that are looking to gain some notoriety.
The first project that we are unveiling to achieve those goals is ChristianHipHop.tv! ChristianHipHop.tv will provide an outlet for viewers that want to quickly see all of the latest Christian Hip Hop videos as well as provide artists the outlet to have their videos curated, cultivated, and chronicled.

The truth is, we live not in a Theocracy. Long gone are the days where Rulers, Kings, Monarchs, and Presidents look to a higher being in the decision making process. Human reasoning and understanding has become the final authority in all matters.
There is a tension that many believers find themselves in; the desire to stand up for what they believe in while understanding the world in which they live.
As a business, hip hop has always relied on the power of sex for profit. For years, artists like Patra, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, and Nikki Minaj, to name a few, have capitalized on their sex appeal to great effect. Meaning they've made heaps of dollars by coupling art and sexuality. So with the reality of sex as entertainment ever before us, certain questions must be asked: how do we educate the impressionable minds being bombarded daily with sex and sex and more sex? Who is to provide this education? Parents, school teachers, the church?
