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.

Why aren't people like Lecrae winning!? There is frustration that KJ-52 won the Dove Award for 'Rap / Hip Hop Album of the Year'. KJ-52 now has 5 Dove Awards. There have been complaints over the years, including this year, that KJ-52 won because he is white, because he has the most sales, politics, etc. While some of that may be an influence, most or all of it is based on ignorance. There are requirements and criteria (similiar to Grammy's, Stellar's, etc.) that have to be met for artists to be considered for nominations.
'Chronicles of an X-Hustler' dropped in August of 2009. The album received critical acclaim and debuted Number 4 on the iTunes Hip Hop chart between Fabolous 'Loso's Way' and Lil Waynes 'The Carter III.' This was quite an achievement for an independent artist but Thisl isnt done yet. It is certain to be another hot summer as he gets ready to hit the road with k-Drama, Pro, and Json on the Urban Missionary Tour. Rapzilla recently caught up with Thisl after his video shoot for Youre the One to talk record sales, inner-city outreach, and how monopoly can help build Christian community.
