Memphis based Dedicated Music Group is a fast growing Urban music label boasting Billboard chart topping artists with one common goal, Kingdom Building. The label’s newest family member is known to some as “Mr. Wut Can I Do For Ya” but to most by GAMMAGE. Gammage is a hard hitting, explosive rapper whose music has a mainstream flare and appeal but he is without a doubt a Christian. His lyrics, beats and style can go head to head with any rapper – Christian or mainstream. The difference is the potent, pure, passionate life-messages that are delivered in every track. Gammage attacks the enemy like a warrior via his lyrics while his music is fierce, beat bangin’, solid energy! Add a comment

Al Harris, a veteran cornerback with the Green Bay Packers nicknamed "The Dirty One", is currently producing a Christian Rap album with childhood friend and convicted felon Kevin Soto.

“We’re going to change everything,” Harris said. “This is a movement. We’re saying, you can do all the right things and still be cool.”
“All these years, music kept coming up, kept bringing us together,”
Harris said. “It always came back to music, no matter what we did, or where we went.” Harris and Soto had started talking about making a hip hop album in 1997, but things always seem to fall apart. Mostly because Soto kept getting into trouble.

"But one day he calls me and says, 'I am going to church,' and the conversation just evolved from there," Harris said. Add a comment
