While compilations often leave a sour taste in the collective retail mouths, Night Owls continues to gain momentum as a trusted brand and to introduce talented, handpicked artists through exclusive songs, unavailable on any other release. Night Owls 5 features, both, established and up and coming artists, and sometimes on the same song. The project is mixed and mastered entirely at Syntax Studios by the a team that is known, above all, for quality. The result is the variety of a compilation with the cohesiveness of an album.

Bizzle has been getting alot of feedback from both the secular and Christian Hip Hop market on his "diss track" entitled "Truth Music". Which has been released all over the internet this past week. The track addressed to Kanye, Jay-Z, and Rick Ross about involvement in the Illuminati has even caught the attention of big names such as 50 Cent (who posted the video on his personal video blog). This added to the already wide spread exposure including 200,000+ views the video saw at WorldStarHipHop.com alone. Recently, Boi-1da (production credits include Drake, Eminem, Kanye West, Lil' Wayne, Keri Hilson, Trey Songz) came across it and liked what he heard. The tweets below speculate that there may be a collaboration between Bizzle and Boi-1da in the future. Stay tuned to Rapzilla for more info!

Anger, depression, addiction, and discontentment: just a few of the ills that plaque many a man. The solutions: join a group, read a book, basically, YOU can win this battle!

But what about the war? In solely attacking the behaviors or the external problems in our lives the origin of our issues is overlooked. Essentially, we try to alter effects, instead of exploring and tackling the cause. Some don't realize the root of their problems is internal, in fact spiritual. Others recognize, but underestimate how serious their problems are. And even still, as believers, we trust in ourselves to overcome by our own strength.

Lecrae gets support from Sho Baraka, Trip Lee, Tedashii, Pro, J.R., Benjah and many others along the journey towards restoration--with several memorable collaborations. PK, CheeseBeats, J.R., and Benjah contribute on production and sonically, help take the listener along a soul-full ride.

Lecrae's prayer is that people will not just gain practical insight for their lives, but they would find real sympathy from him and mostly, Jesus. He is more than our healer. He IS our healing. He doesn't just offer us peace. He IS our peace. And He IS our rehabilitation. So find rest for your weary soul and joy in the midst of life's ups and downs by checking into REHAB.

In that post you can watch a video by current_ tv that was done prior to Citizen Aim's death, that documents some of his story including Cystic Fibrosis, the genetic disease he battled.
