Upcoming project builds on current album release and redefines “The Good Life” by challenging people to no longer live in the light of lies but embark on a new and more glorious journey.

So, apparently, one of hip hop’s most recognizable artists has changed his name. Yes, “Snoop Dogg” is now “Snoop Lion” The legendary emcee is reportedly done with hip hop and openly embracing reggae as home for his musical talents. Of course, it’s very easy to make fun of this as we have done with some of the other pop culture name changes. But Snoop insists that this is “the elevation” of his persona and points to his journey to a Jamaican Rastafarian temple as his inspiration for the upgrade. He even said, “I wanna bury Snoop Dogg.” Interesting.
Continuing the tradition of exciting concert tours, The Synergy Tour will incorporate a
unique concept: just 2 main artists. The duo is crooner/rapper B. Reith and soul singer

hip hop makes the Synergy Tour a “can’t miss” event.

“My name is Vice Versa, I’m just a young man of God, a father, husband…” I heard him say. “My intentions are to preach the gospel through the vehicle of music to the saved and unsaved, that’s where the name Vice Vrsa originates, to be able to do it on both spectrums.”

Is it ever too early to compile an “albums of the year” candidates list? Of course not!
2012 has already been a memorable year for Christian Hip Hop, and the second half only promises to
get better. There are some clearly obvious candidates in the mix for best project so far
(Lecrae, Beautiful Eulogy, Swoope, Wit & Dre Murray), but I prefer to focus on some
