Urban Christian artist Von Wons next album, All-American Felon, will be recorded for the mainstream Def Vibe rap label and distributed through Warner Bros./Asylum Records. This puts Von Won in a category with only a select few Christian hip hop artists (B.B. Jay and Mr. Del come to mind) whose music and ministry garnered enough interest from a secular company willing to invest in their work.

ATLANTA - Bursting on the hip-hop scene with a myriad of awesome beats, thought-provoking introspective lyrics and poignant messages is Sho Baraka of Reach Records. This conscious lyricist has just released his awe inspiring single entitled "We Can Be More" featuring balladeer J.R. This track is deeper than what first meets the ear. It conveys the message that love goes beyond the contemporary view of lust and selfishness. Sho takes you on a lyrical journey down the path of love, which we all have traveled. In this song Sho exposes how love is abused, misunderstood and sometimes even ignored and encourages listeners to seek authentic love. "We Can Be More" Sho Baraka clarion call, steps up to the plate and challenges men to rise, to accept and respect true love.
