I was browsing through some blogs and I was reminded of a question that I get from alot of aspiring producers, and that is:

"Tony, how do I get my name out there?"

I do realize that there are producers that look up to me, and I take that with great honor and thanks to God, hoping that I can make the most God glorifying impact on them.  But I would like to answer every producer with a similar question in this one blog.

Earlier Wednesday, Mr Del's manager, Lawrence Haywood, contacted Memphisrap.com by phone and has confirmed that the Christian hip hop artist has indeed signed a multi-million dollar deal with Universal Distribution.

As reported Tuesday on MemphisRap.com, the former Three 6 Mafia member and Grammy nominee, Mr Del, inked a distri
bution deal with the company Universal Distribution which according to Haywood, the deal was closed mid July in link with Universal's "christian link" which is not necessarily a new Christian rap division of the company but it's a working link with Christian rap artists such as beginning now with Mr Del. Whether or not this will lead to more signings of Christian rap acts, only time can tell.

Hip-hop music has been blamed by the government and media as being a key factor for influencing violent youth culture in the UK. Christian rap artists are giving the genre of music a whole new influence.

Rap, garage and grime music are constantly accused of being a major factor in gun and knife crime on our UK streets - because of some of the lyrics and images that glamorise guns, gangs and a get rich quick lifestyle.

However, urban Christian hip-hop/grime music that contains messages of hope, faith and the philosophy of turning the other cheek is emerging on a big scale as being an effective tool used to engage with young people, and be part of the solution to the escalating violence in our inner cities.

Can Christian hip-hop make it in Green Country's urban markets?
If local rapper Fedel has anything to do with it, yes it can.

Last week, his newly minted single, "Tell a Friend," was voted the No. 1 song on Tulsa's 105.3 KJamz nightly top eight countdown. "Being that I'm a Christian artist — a Christian hip-hop artist at that — this is a huge accomplishment that I don't take for granted," he said in a recent e-mail to the Tulsa World. He thanks primetime DJ, Ramal, for the break.

Braille added a new song on his myspace page called "HeartFelt" which is a feature for DJ Tone Spliff album, that will be dropping later this year titled "Authentic." Braille comments on the new song "This "HeartFelt" track definitely has some personal lyrics. I don't really force most of my feature appearances, I just rap about whatever I'm thinking/feeling at the moment. Hope you enjoy."

Braille also announced that every now and then he is going to throw rough drafts, features and exclusives up on his myspace. Sharing new music fresh after he creates it.

 The music business in Nigeria is changing as Evangelists turn from traditional gospel music to mainstream to ensure that the Gospel itself is spread to as many as possible through Hip-Hop.  One of the acts involved in this new wave of Gospel is the Rooftop MC’s, which consist of two young men called Kunie Adeyoola (Soulsnatcha) and Olaitan Hughes (Sokleva).

Both grew up with spiritual influences that made them gravitate towards the music industry, and they decided that their sound would be Hip-Hop and their lyrics Gospel.
