Flame calls himself an urban missionary, and he said communicating with the kids he wants to reach means speaking in a cultural language they understand.
"This is perfect because the power of hip-hop music is tremendous, not only here, but all over the world."

According to "The Charleston Gazette" KJ-52 has sold more than half a million copies of his last album "The Yearbook."
This is a mistake, "The Yearbook" has only sold according to the last soundscan report almost 50,000 copies. KJ-52 has surely sold over half a million records during his carreer. Who ever wrote the article at the Gazette should check their facts before promoting an upcoming KJ-52 show wrong.
Half a million for one album, I don't believe that has ever been reached for a Christian Hip Hop album. If you count Toby Mac as "Hip Hop" then yes it has been reached, but that day has not yet come...Add a comment

Scientists at IBM say they have developed a new type of digital storage which would enable a device such as an MP3 player to store about half a million songs - or 3,500 films - and cost far less to produce.Add a comment
Lecrae is asking for prayer because he's working on a new album! "Pray that it would TRULY be used to deeply impact lives for the cause of Christ" says Lecrae. The album is now officially titled "REBEL". Lecrae wants "people to see that term though biblical lenses. Turning our back on Postmodernity, secular humanism, sinful elements of popular culture, and sexual perversity. Now pray that again!"
The album will release September 30 2008.Add a comment
