DJ Morph's 5th mixtape entitled "International" which dropped this week. This project is a Hip Hop/Rap compilation of exclusive material with extraordinary artists from across the country.

After listening to the album entirely, this is definately one of the hottest and best album (and mixtape) of the year! This album gets the first (and more to come) of "Rapzilla's Stamp of Must-Have Albums." I personally haven't heard a Christian Hip Hop album so fresh and hot like this in a while.

Making it big in the music industry has never been an easy task. For every artist that exists on a recognizable scale there are tons that are still trying to get through and even more that have given up. For Toronto born emcee, Promise, the struggles of the game are all too familiar. Like most artists that make it (or don’t for that matter) this young rapper has his own story; however, his does not have an ending …yet. So what’s he doing wrong? Or should I ask, what’s he doing so right that he’s hasn’t blown up already?

Believin Stephen is happy to announce news of his project he's working on. It will be called the "Perseverance" Mixtape and will be dropping in 2009.
This will be a FREE mixtape and he's planning to post it on a few sites online (Rapzilla maybe?) as well as make some CD-R copies. Believin Stephen is using the government's Stimulus check to help fund the mixtape.
There will be a number of features on this project which will be announced at a later date. Things to count on: he will be sharing his heart, some full length songs (not just a bunch of random verses), covering different facets of the idea of perseverance, and of course Christ being exalted.
