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.”

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.
GemStones (aka Gemini), for those not familiar, gained popularity in the music industry as he came up through the ranks on Lupe Fiasco's imprint label 1st & 15th Entertainment. GemStones was featured on a few songs on each of Lupe Fiasco's hit albums Food & Liquor, and The Cool. GemStones utilized the platform that he and Lupe built and released his single "We On" feat. Lupe Fiasco & Pooh Bear. The song garnered a huge buzz.
Prior to GemStones album releasing in 2009, he dropped everything to follow Christ.

Underground single applause found on the ep APPLAUSE vol. 1 from Swoope is creating a lot of buzz. This song dives deep into the closet of Swoope. He seeks to convey his struggles of being an artist from stage to life. This very candid and truthful song pulls from the emotions of Swoope who hears applause for his work but desperately wants the applause of one to be his only joy.
