Trip Lee released this statement on the upcoming album:
The response to 20/20 was more than I could have asked for. I heard so many stories about how God used the album in the lives of the listeners. The stories range from people just being helped through rough days, to people trusting Christ for the very first time. That blows me away! I want to thank everyone for all the support. But, it's time for a new chapter and a brand new album.
As one of the premiere music outlets in Christian music, we get tons of emails, and now Tweets, Facebook comments, Facebook messages, Facebook IM's, instant messages, text messages, phone calls, etc., from artists that are ignorant to the industry standards, relationship building, and professionalism. Everyone is ignorant at some point and everyone will be ignorant to many things until they die. However, when it comes to being ignorant to music industry standards in this day and age, there is no excuse. Christian hip hop, of almost any genre that I have had experience in, are the worst at submitting news and press releases. So here is a quick example to help you model your professional press release after. This will greatly increase your chances of getting published on websites.
First I want to thank everyone for your understanding, mercy and grace while my family and I worked on rebuilding our marriage and reconciliation. From the very beginning, I have wanted to communicate with you. However following the advice of the church leadership, and others to whom I entrusted my restoration, I remained silent.
Back in late April 2009, the Lord exposed me and consequently delivered me from being entangled in a season of willful disobedience, deception and darkness. I was involved in a non-sexual but very inappropriate relationship with a woman other than my wife, thereby betraying my Lord, my wife, family, Epiphany Fellowship (the church I love and was instrumental in founding) my co-laborers and ministry supporters like you.

On Apr. 20, 2010, La Familia Muzik invades Earths planetary airwaves with their new two-disc effort, Greetings Earthlings, a compilation album featuring the entire La Familia Muzik 2010 roster. Introducing new artists Adam Gilley and G-86 alongside La Familia Muzik mainstays Foolish, Ryan Horton, and SYD, Greetings Earthlings relaunches the indie label into 2010 and beyond. Following four successful full-length album releases since the labels inception in Jan. 2006, La Familia Muzik pushes the envelope, not only in their creativity and innovation, but in their passion to see people impacted by the message of their music. Greetings Earthlings, undoubtedly the labels strongest release to date, sets the tone for La Familia Muziks future projects while at the same time giving listeners a solid introduction to the independent labels expanding roster.
When hip hop was first being created by DJ Kool Herc and his contemporaries in the 70s, New York was the place to be. As time has gone on, obviously, hip hop has migrated to various localities around the nation. Since the 80s, Philadelphia has produced some major names, both in terms of commercial hip hop and the underground. Everyone from Will Smith to Eve, Roots to Jedi Mind Tricks has called The Illadelph their home base. Continuing in that city's varied tradition is Japhia Life, with his new album, Nazareth. If youve never listened to Japhia Life, then get ready to hear stories of real life filtered through imaginative lyrics and beats that just might make your head nod.
