A couple of weeks ago we reported that Saigon & Lecrae were shooting the music video for the song "Best Thing That I Found." We now have a behind the scenes video that you can watch below with Saigon & Lecrae talking about it. See it after jump.
Recently Lecrae announced that he is filming a piece for major television network PBS's TV show Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly. The show "examines religion's role and the ethical dimensions behind top news headlines". This is exciting considering that PBS is very well respected in the academic world.
It appears that Tennessee Titans’ rookie linebacker Zach Brown truly is “on fire.”

Word is that Collision Records flagship artist Swoope is going to release a solo EP in the new year. Swoope has had an exciting and busy 2012, which included an inclusion in the High Society project (Sho Baraka, Suzy Rock, J.R., Swoope), his own ground-breaking solo album 'Wake Up' and numerous memorable features. With the WLAK group album and an EP, 2013 is already looking to be just as productive for the Akron native.
If Swoope is making an EP, what producers and artists do you want to see on it?

Many are aware of Lecrae’s recent success in the music industry, but before Lecrae's “Rehab”, “Church Clothes” and “Gravity” projects there was a ground breaking album entitled “Rebel” that he released. Some will say that Lecrae's sophomore album 'After the Music Stops' sparked his industry momentum and to a degree it did but 'Rebel' helped thrust Lecrae into the mainstream arena in a recording breaking fashion. When 'Rebel' came out it immediately appeared on the iTunes’s Hip-Hop Charts at the number three position, right behind T.I’s 'Paper Trial'. It also charted Number 8 on Billboard’s top Rap Album category.
Lecrae is not taking any breaks when it comes to pushing his latest release 'Gravity', and for this album it looks like he'll be bringing more visuals than any other. Last week the music video for "Tell The World" dropped and we broke news of a "Fakin'" video in production. Now, a visual to accompany the song "Mayday" featuring Big K.R.I.T., which was touted as the best on the album and was recieved well in and outside of Christian Hip Hop, is in the works.
Xist Music has been generating quite a buzz in 2012. They recently dropped a star studded compilation called 'MOVE Vol. 1'.

His debut project 'True Story' had a top 30 Billboard hit called “Won’t it Be," and his sophomore release 'It’s Over' made it to the top 10 on the Urban/Hip-Hop Billboard Gospel Charts. Sean Simmonds recently released a free EP entitled 'Long Story Short: The Genesis' and is now filming a music video for the single “Lifeline”.
