A recent rant on Rhema Soul's Twitter account has, in fact, led to some interesting discussion on the topic of art and the mind of the consumer. What the group released was a slew of Twitter posts which gave a glimpse into an experiment being carried out. The rundown is this: Rhema Soul is releasing an album entitled Fingerprints on March 30, 2010 and has, as of a week ago, begun taking pre-orders for the highly anticipated project. There are three packages altogether. The third, aptly titled the Double Deluxe Package, includes several items as well as a mysterious graphic tee (Also, if you purchase the last package you are entered into a drawing to win a Rhema Soul custom skateboard deck).

Google Inc.'s online video-sharing site announced a new program -- dubbed "Musicians Wanted" -- to lure independent musicians to its social networking site.

The program targets independent artists by offering them an easy way to create their own homepage, or channel, on YouTube and share in the ad revenues generated by their videos. Up until now, YouTube has only offered the revenue-sharing option to artists who have contracts with record labels or who have carved out special contracts with the video-sharing site.

“DJ Shok and I have been building up since 2005. It was extremely humbling when he first contacted me, as his music resume is extensive (Eve, Busta Rhymes, Snoop, DMX, Big Pun, Styles P, Jadakiss, and the list goes on.) He had taken a new direction from Ruff Ryders, and was praying about establishing connections with Believers. Since that time, our friendship has grown, with Jesus at the core. It’s refreshing to have a guy you can call to simply spill and pray with; music aside. He worked on my Everyday Man record (Launch, T.I.M.B.S) and proceeded to remix the entire record as a side project, in celebration of the Everyday Man record and the tremendous reviews and purpose it has served. We’re going to release it a little bit at a time.

When I threw the T.I.M.B.S. track out there to some of my peers, the response was overwhelming. Thank you to all who participated; it was a huge blessing to get you all on these tracks.

The theme is simple: we are God’s mouthpiece. Evangelism requires being deliberate in our actions and words. To use hip-hop as the subculture to express that has been a tremendous privilege for the past fifteen years.”

The release of New Rebel Flag's Nitty Gritty EP kicked off in the city of Slidel, LA just one week prior to their Saints team securing Louisiana's first ever Super Bowl win. The Nitty Gritty EP release party has continued to generate buzz from NRF's energetic performance which also raised $1,000 in support for Haitian relief efforts. New Rebel Flag is now scheduled to join forces with Creative Vision Outreach for a 3 week campaign impacting 15,000 students in the greater Southwest Missiouri region.

In the gospel there is such a profound statement made in John 3:16. God shares with us how much He loves us and values our relationship with Him that He was willing to sacrifice His best for us so we could live with Him forever. This truly is no ordinary love.

Soul Deep Records is proud to announce the release of Rawsrvnt’s 5th studio album titled No Ordinary Love. No Ordinary Love will be released worldwide on all major digital outlets (iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Rhapsody, Zune, etc.) on 3/30/2010. Add a comment

A former Toys R Us retail space will be the new home for this Urban Tampa Church

After 22 months of grueling negotiations Crossover Church and Toys R Us Delaware Inc. came to a final agreement and signed on March 4th, 2010 for the spacious property at 1235 East Fowler Ave. in Tampa. The pioneering Crossover Church is now positioning to make a huge impact in Tampa’s rough “Suitcase City” community. Having outgrown its former facility, the church recently sold their campus. The last Sunday at the New Orleans Avenue location was on January 24th, 2010. "It was an amazing last day as we ended with a huge concert after our 3rd service with Reach Records for DJ Official’s ‘Entermission’ album release party. We went out with a bang," says Crossover Pastor, author and EMI recording artist Tommy "Urban D" Kyllonen. "We were bursting at the seams doing 3 services every Sunday since 2005. We had been praying for a larger space to reach more people and offer more programs for the community we serve." Those prayers were answered when the church closed on the property on Friday January 8th, 2010 - a miraculous feat in this turbulent economy. The property was sold to an up and coming Haitian Church “Christian Assembly’. Crossover has since partnered with them to do a relief effort for Haiti.
