Gospel Reggae pioneer, Papa San has been gearing up to release his latest project 'One Blood
' which features 3 Grammy Award winning artists (Lecrae, Fred Hammond, Israel Houghton) and is produced almost entirely by his son, also a Grammy Award winner - Tyshane of 808&Elite.

It appears that doors continue to open up for New Orleans’ most inspirational rapper. After officially signing with RCA Inspiration
just a few weeks ago, artist Dee-1 has been added as an opening act for the Tetsuo & Youth Tour , which is on schedule to hit a total 25 more cities nationwide.
This week’s album sales charts will prominently feature hip hop acts, including the most prominent Christian Hip Hop name. Lecrae has unofficially cracked Top 200 charts at #21 with the non-DJ version of 'Church Clothes 2' which was released last Thursday. After
120,000 downloads of the DJ Don Cannon-hosted version from Datpiff, Lecrae sold over 15,000 album units digitally on iTunes. This number would be impressive for a regular album release with stellar marketing but is especially remarkable considering the presence of a free download. The sequel to last year’s Church Clothes mixtape joins Eminem’s 'Marshall Mathers 2' LP and Drake’s 'Nothing Was The Same' as the top hip hop releases of this week. Congrats to Lecrae for his continued success on the charts!
