Believin Stephen is happy to announce news of his project he's working on. It will be called the "Perseverance" Mixtape and will be dropping in 2009.

This will be a FREE mixtape and he's planning to post it on a few sites online (Rapzilla maybe?) as well as make some CD-R copies.  Believin Stephen is using the government's Stimulus check to help fund the mixtape.

There will be a number of features on this project which will be announced at a later date. Things to count on: he will be sharing his heart, some full length songs (not just a bunch of random verses), covering different facets of the idea of perseverance, and of course Christ being exalted.

"Chemist in the kitchen, I am cooking up a cure...", these are the words from one who is sure to make history in a genre that has yet to receive the overdue attention that it deserves. Regardless of the lack of reverence that Christian Rap receives in today’s music industry, there is one artist who demands respect. Add a comment

Let’s “chop it up.” Let’s put a weighty matter on the table and dissect it until we can digest it, digest it until we possess it, and possess it so that we reflect it. Who talks like this; who welcomes this kind of thinking or this kind of activity? Paul said that “the mature do,” they embrace the idea of straining and agonizing to take hold of maturity (Phil 3:15). Welcome to my new syndicated column “The Chop Chop” where we advocate unpacking meatier matters of faith and culture for the benefit of our souls.

I'm doing my best to seize this moment when I don't have much to do. Well that's not the truth I have plenty to do but I don't feel so overwhelmed that I can't write.

I am hurting for the world. Not some generic "world" that people cant see or touch. But for the world around me. For my family, my community, for nations.

I was browsing through some blogs and I was reminded of a question that I get from alot of aspiring producers, and that is:

"Tony, how do I get my name out there?"

I do realize that there are producers that look up to me, and I take that with great honor and thanks to God, hoping that I can make the most God glorifying impact on them.  But I would like to answer every producer with a similar question in this one blog.

Earlier Wednesday, Mr Del's manager, Lawrence Haywood, contacted Memphisrap.com by phone and has confirmed that the Christian hip hop artist has indeed signed a multi-million dollar deal with Universal Distribution.

As reported Tuesday on MemphisRap.com, the former Three 6 Mafia member and Grammy nominee, Mr Del, inked a distri
bution deal with the company Universal Distribution which according to Haywood, the deal was closed mid July in link with Universal's "christian link" which is not necessarily a new Christian rap division of the company but it's a working link with Christian rap artists such as beginning now with Mr Del. Whether or not this will lead to more signings of Christian rap acts, only time can tell.

On September 16th 30th (NEW DATE), the rap group Grits will be releasing their eighth full-length studio album titled Reiterate.  This upcoming album marks the beginning of a new era for the best-selling crew.  Teron “Bonafide” Carter and Stacy “Coffee” Jones have been recording for the last decade with boutique independent label Gotee Records, but now the emcees are stepping out in faith and launching Revolution Art, an indie label of their own that, they hope, will make more than just hits.  With this album they have created their boldest representation of their craft to date adding new synth and electronic sounds to their rap style.
