Tammy Taylor said some of the most popular Christian ringtones are songs by rap artists. Taylor is with www.ringspirations.com, a site that offers religious ringtones.

Some of the more popular artists include Cross Movement, Flame and Da'T.R.U.T.H., Taylor said.

"As people are finding out about the site, we've noticed the main sellers are Christian rap and rock artists, praise and worship music and your hymns," she said.

Phanatik will shoot a new Music Video for his song "Sho’Em Off".

On Phanatik's myspace blog he's asking people to come dressed, this info may give you an idea of the music video.
Peep the contrast - God’s Glory vs earthly fashion...which one are you showing off more??? If you’re local ( philly jersey ny de ) and can make it the scene being shot is a fashion show. Come dressed to impress in your cultural best. We need extras for the crowd and a few extras ( who stand from the crowd) will be chosen for the run way! Also, if you make Christ-centered fashion get at me. This might be a chance to co-labor and Show’Em Off. - Written by Phanatik

The logic was that by selling crack cocaine to his mother Woodbridge resident Christian Love would keep her off the streets and safe. "Streetwise, I've sold drugs since I was 9," said Love, who was raised in Washington, D.C. His mother, Melody Love, who now lives in Capitol Heights, Md., has been a crack addict since he was a child, Love said.

The story has a happy ending.

On March 2, Love, now a full-time Christian rapper, celebrated the release of his first album, "The Awakening." It was also his birthday and marked the first year his mother has been off drugs.
