Atlanta-based I-66 Entertainment announced today that it has entered into a Strategic Alliance with Charleston-based New Mind Records to exclusively distribute, as a part of its Agreement with CLG Distribution, Savannah-based Gospel Rap Artist and Minister of the Gospel: Zion.
Mr. Coleman, president of I-66 Entertainment comments, "We are extremely excited about Zion's release. We've watched him over the years develop into a mighty soldier for the Lord; and his artistry has has grown to even higher levels."
The release date for Zion's "Let Me In" will be announced soon!
In Zion's quest to serve and follow Christ, he through a personal witness of the Holy Spirit discovered that he had a call on his life to preach the Gospel. In July of 1997, he preached his initial sermon and was licensed into ministry. In October 2002 he began to minister as a solo artist. Since that time, God has enabled him to travel nationally teaching and ministering the Word through gospel rap.
One of his greatest inspirations, other than his father who is now a pastor, is a gospel rap minister by the name of Jah Word. Jah Word has been like a big brother to him in ministry. Since Zion began his music ministry there is one thought that still echoes in his mind that Jah Word said, "never lose sight on the real focus, this is strictly ministry."
"I am so excited about this first project coming from this new record label that God has ordained - this business venture with I-66 Entertainment and G- Wade. We look forward to continuing to bring quality hip hop ministry to the culture and that it's understood that JESUS CHRIST is the way, the truth and the life. To G- Wade and I-66 Entertainment, thank you for allowing New Mind Records to build a spiritual, as well as, a business relationship with you and your company in helping us fulfill the Great Commission of Christ," says Gerald White, President/CEO of New Mind Records.

We have compiled a group of ministers and Christian artist to bring awareness to the Christian community about the need to support these ministries who so happen to be by Gods providence, in but not of hip-hop culture. What we are doing through Gods grace is to communicate this Gospel of Jesus Christ to our youth in a way that they can understand.
