On June 20 and 21, Houston was home to the rarest voices in conscious rap and hip-hop culture as the red carpet rolled out for the All Eyes On Me (AEOM) Achievement Awards. Held at Copperfield Church, the newly revamped awards show saluted Syntax Records with top honors.
Formerly focusing on Texas, the AEOM Achievement Awards took a national spin this year, bringing artists together from New York to California in the name of hip-hop. This year, AEOM gave Syntax Records the mantle of "Pioneer Classic Record Label".

In a world where many teens know every word of a Soulja Boy or Lil Wayne song but can't remember the Ten Commandments or recite the Lord's Prayer, pastors and youth ministers across the nation are in a battle to bring their youths to Christ.

"Young people aren't going to stop listening to hip-hop," said Samad Bilal founder of New Generations Christian Conference, which stopped by Paradise Cathedral in Roanoke on Saturday.

The all-day conference focuses on bringing the word of God to young people who are influenced by today's hip-hop culture.

Todd Smith, aka Te'Luvv, doesn't fit the rapper mold. The only gold he wears is a wedding ring. He doesn't curse, drink or claim to have emerged from thug life. "The bottom line for me is that it's ministry," he said. "I decrease myself so God can look bigger and better."

Te'Luvv (pronounced Tay-Love) is a 28-year-old Christian rapper who recently moved to Memphis, and just released his fourth CD, "The World is Not Enough." Each track is a poetic sermon delivered through a rap beat.

In 2008, the event formerly known as the Texas Holy Hip Hop Achievement Awards will be billed as the All Eyes On Me Achievement Awards. And instead of a strictly state-wide scope, this year's festivities will now encompass and honor artists from all across the United States who have and continue to blaze trails within inspirational hip hop culture.

This is probably old news, but CMR didn't send us a press release about it and we missed the news since it was the same time that Phil (who runs things at Rapzilla) went to Africa (on a missions trip) for 2 months.

Before you read the news release, this band actually will just re-release the album through CMR (just like Lecrae Real Talk). So you can buy the album right now on CD Baby instead of waiting for September! Isn't that sweet?

Mista & Mrs. Taylor (the Christian Hip Hop husband and wife duo) has just released their latest installment entitled "Set the Atmosphere". Picking up from where they left off with their 4th Man Records release "Love, Joy & Pain" the Taylor's are back still pounding the pavement with the Gospel through the vehicle of music.  "Set the Atmosphere" was birthed from the desire to worship God, bring hope to the lost and revelation to the believer.

DJ Primo, who chopped and screwed the 116 Clique's first collective project, not too long ago returned to Houston from his second tour of duty with the U.S. Army and was able to present the crew with an American flag that flew overseas in Afghanistan. How dope is that?
Next time you see the King of Christian Chop-N-Screw be sure to tell him how much you appreciate his service and sacrifice in our armed forces.
