At ESPN we use the term "Instant Classic" to define games that provide timeless, extraordinary, edge-of-your-seat entertainment. It's no stretch to use that phrase to describe Japhia Life's new album, 'Nazareth.'
Toe 2 Toe Records, an urban gospel label, will be partnering with the Tate Music Group (TMG) to promote and distribute ASON’s next album 'Two 4 ONE,' a duo project with singer Christy LOVE, due Fall 2010.
After seeing brief Billboard success with 'Turn My Life Up' in 2008 (debuting at #43, and then dropping off the 2nd week), Sho Baraka and Reach Records have shown growth in sales and staying power.

Trip Lee released this statement on the upcoming album:
The response to 20/20 was more than I could have asked for. I heard so many stories about how God used the album in the lives of the listeners. The stories range from people just being helped through rough days, to people trusting Christ for the very first time. That blows me away! I want to thank everyone for all the support. But, it's time for a new chapter and a brand new album.
As one of the premiere music outlets in Christian music, we get tons of emails, and now Tweets, Facebook comments, Facebook messages, Facebook IM's, instant messages, text messages, phone calls, etc., from artists that are ignorant to the industry standards, relationship building, and professionalism. Everyone is ignorant at some point and everyone will be ignorant to many things until they die. However, when it comes to being ignorant to music industry standards in this day and age, there is no excuse. Christian hip hop, of almost any genre that I have had experience in, are the worst at submitting news and press releases. So here is a quick example to help you model your professional press release after. This will greatly increase your chances of getting published on websites.
First I want to thank everyone for your understanding, mercy and grace while my family and I worked on rebuilding our marriage and reconciliation. From the very beginning, I have wanted to communicate with you. However following the advice of the church leadership, and others to whom I entrusted my restoration, I remained silent.
Back in late April 2009, the Lord exposed me and consequently delivered me from being entangled in a season of willful disobedience, deception and darkness. I was involved in a non-sexual but very inappropriate relationship with a woman other than my wife, thereby betraying my Lord, my wife, family, Epiphany Fellowship (the church I love and was instrumental in founding) my co-laborers and ministry supporters like you.

You heard it here first. Japhia Life is officially releasing his new album 'Nazareth' on Tuesday April 6th, 2010. The album will be available on Christian hip hop stores on April 6th, and then in late April the album will be available on iTunes, Amazon, etc.
