This is probably old news, but CMR didn't send us a press release about it and we missed the news since it was the same time that Phil (who runs things at Rapzilla) went to Africa (on a missions trip) for 2 months.

Before you read the news release, this band actually will just re-release the album through CMR (just like Lecrae Real Talk). So you can buy the album right now on CD Baby instead of waiting for September! Isn't that sweet?

DJ Primo, who chopped and screwed the 116 Clique's first collective project, not too long ago returned to Houston from his second tour of duty with the U.S. Army and was able to present the crew with an American flag that flew overseas in Afghanistan. How dope is that?
Next time you see the King of Christian Chop-N-Screw be sure to tell him how much you appreciate his service and sacrifice in our armed forces.

Theory Hazit has teamed up with Vintage... no not the fresh clothing company we all love... but the Virginia based producer with an ear for the old school. The two have put together a really dope album. The album is so dope in fact anyone who has heard an advanced copy has been comparing it to Hi-Tek and Talib's Reflection Eternal.

On Friday night in Royal Brougham Pavilion, Portland-based rappers Jelani "G-Natural" Greenidge and Jaamar "J-MAC" McKelvey, rapping about breakfast cereal, received enthusiastic applause from 150 attendees.

As hip-hop crew "The Iccsters," they performed during the fifth annual Night of Beats, including the song "Cereal," which features rhymes about rap skills and a relationship with Christ using cereal metaphors:

"The love of God compels me to move / and kind of like Kix, he's kid-tested and mother-approved. / So strong, you don't need to spike it / and makes Life so good even Mikey likes it."

During their set, Greenidge said that some people still think that being a "Christian rapper" is a contradiction, almost like being a "Christian porn producer."
