God Over Money artist Bizzle is set to release his latest project ‘Well Wishes’ on July 22nd. In light of his tour throughout Africa, Bizzle has made a commitment to dedicate 100 percent of the profits gained from ‘Well Wishes’ to building fresh water wells in the most destitute and impoverished parts of the continent. The plan for ‘Well Wishes’ is to begin building in Mozambique, while expanding to other cities and villages throughout Africa.
Most artists have trouble relinquishing the profits from a project they worked months or even years on, however Bizzle takes that seemingly giant step to do so.

Has Christian Hip-Hop arrived? This question asked to 10 different people may warrant 10 uniquely different responses, but it was the first question Nicola Menzie of the Christian Post asked Chad Horton, co-owner of Rapzilla, and Timothy Trudeau of SyntaxCreative, in an interview on Monday. Most may disagree that Christian hip-hop (CHH) has truly arrived but it is undeniable that it has succeeded greatly amongst Christian and mainstream audiences.
The core Christian fan base has indeed pushed record sales and ticket sales through the roof, making it almost impossible for others within the hip-hop community to neglect CHH artists any longer.

Nate Marquardt prayed for James Te Huna before fighting him at UFC Fight Night 43.
“Please protect this guy so he doesn’t get too hurt,” said Marquardt.
He didn’t believe oddsmakers, who labeled him an 8-5 underdog. Despite losing his last three fights, Marquardt expected to win easily.
His confidence wasn’t rooted in pride. It was rooted in God.
Marquardt is a professing Christian. His faith, and the Christian hip-hop song he used for entrance music, gave him peace against Te Huna. But the last few years, Marquardt failed to prioritize his faith over his career.
