Recently, members of the Christian Hip Hop community have been reminded of the
frailty of human life. One such reminder is the sudden and tragic death of two of Steve
and Nonna Towns three children in a St. Louis house fire on Saturday, February 10th.
Steve (better known as producer “Steve-T”) and Nonna also sustained substantial
injuries after escaping the burning house with their four-month old daughter. The
devastating news was covered by much of the local media. Steve
is best known for producing music for Flame, JSon, Fedel and others in the genre, and
Nonna is signed to Thisl’s Full Ride Music Label. The couple has remained rooted in
the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ during this time, selflessly using their pain for the
exaltation of God even in the midst of suffering.

Da' T.R.U.T.H. has enlisted Grammy Award winning producer J.R. to produce his 7th studio release, titled 'Heartbeat'.
"I originally planned to step away from music until 2015 to focus on Mixed Bag Entertainment, but after almost a year of watching & observing the culture, I realized that I had a few more things that I wanted to share. What started as a 3-5 song EP, became a full length album. This record is fun – it's experimental, gritty and engaging, and having my longtime friend help me to shape the project makes it that much more enjoyable," shares Da' T.R.U.T.H.
