We have done the Beat Battle at Flavor Fest the past 2 years and it is a blast! We have been to Legacy and been a sponsor for the last 3 years and wanted to add another element to the conference and performances.

The RIAA today made a rare change to the formula used to certify Gold and Platinum awards to include on-demand music and video streams. Services that will now count towards certification include Spotify, Rhapsody, MOG, Muve, Rdio, Rhapsody, Slacker, Xbox Music, VEVO,, YouTube and Yahoo! Music.

Rather than put a value on music streams based on payout to rightsholders, the RIAA will count 100 plays as 1 sale. The benchmark for Gold and Platinum certifications remains unchanged: 500,000 sales for Gold, 1 million for Platinum and 10 million for Diamond.

Last week we reported that ‘Heroes For Sale’ sold over 27,000 copies and shattered the record for the biggest first week debut album in Christian Hip Hop History. The Billboard charts are in and New York native Andy Mineo has just debuted #11 on the Billboard 200, #4 Rap and #1 Christian/Gospel for his highly anticipated debut album ‘Heroes For Sale’. The project sold more than Lecrae’s ‘Rehab’ (25,864) and had the second best first week for a Christian Hip Hop album in general right after Lecrae’s ‘Gravity’.

Also, last week the lower case emcee Shai Linne’s newest album ‘Lyrical Theology Part 1: Theology' landed at #12 on the Billboard Top Rap Albums. Lecrae recently got some recognition from Billboard; his project ‘Gravity’ was nominated for a 2013 Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Album.

Congratulations to Andy Mineo for charting so well for a debut retail album.
