The new album from Braille and S1 titled "CloudNineteen" is complete.

This duo first collaborated together on the song "Blessed Man" from Braille's last solo record. During 2008 they stayed in touch and slowly started kicking around ideas of doing a full record together. Once both of their schedules cleared up they started creating new tracks. The chemistry was immediate and "CloudNineteen" was pushed to the forefront. Add a comment

"It’s refreshing to hear the heartbeat of a man who is in tune with the purpose of God. J-Silver captures the rhythm and the pulse of what is happening on the street and speaks back to it in a language that it understands." - Noel Robinson (Worship Leader & CEO of Jubal communications)

Some call him J-Silver; some call him Jonathan Findlater… and others simply know him as ‘Jay’. He calls himself a lyricist – ‘Da Soul Lyricist’, to be exact. Add a comment

Nashville rappers unite and form a new group called the BrotherHood (BH). These young men and one lady represent, not only the streets, but a Higher Power. Their swagger is just as cool as those cats on the block. In fact, most of them were just on the block. However, their lives were spared through the anointing of Jesus Christ. Now, these brothers have banded together to spread the word to the hood. Don’t get it twisted; these are not your soap box preacher type choir boys. As Wu-tang paved the way for secular artists to emulate brotherhood, BH is the example of true family. Add a comment
