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.

Memphis based Dedicated Music Group is a fast growing Urban music label boasting Billboard chart topping artists with one common goal, Kingdom Building. The label’s newest family member is known to some as “Mr. Wut Can I Do For Ya” but to most by GAMMAGE. Gammage is a hard hitting, explosive rapper whose music has a mainstream flare and appeal but he is without a doubt a Christian. His lyrics, beats and style can go head to head with any rapper – Christian or mainstream. The difference is the potent, pure, passionate life-messages that are delivered in every track. Gammage attacks the enemy like a warrior via his lyrics while his music is fierce, beat bangin’, solid energy! Add a comment
