This Fall, ARTSO presents the first nationwide tour with artists from Humble Beast and Lampmode Recordings featuring an all-star line-up including Shai Linne, Beautiful Eulogy, J’Son, Stephen the Levite, and Theory Hazit. As if that wasn’t enough, tour creators Trisha Bell and Ladesha Jennings decided to make the collaboration even more beastly by partnering with Juan Pierre, Philadelphia Phillies baseball player and owner of Beast Mode for Christ, LLC.
“Our goal was to show unity in the Body of Christ with the tour. After confirming seven of Christian Hip Hop’s most promising emcees we still wanted to make it ‘beastlier.’ Solidifying the partnership with Juan Pierre was the next step for us,” Trisha Bell said.
Beast Mode for Christ is a company that was birthed out of Pierre’s desire to share his testimony with the world. While having experienced everything that the world had to offer him, Pierre began to realize how fleeting these things were.
“Before I got saved I always thought Christians were soft…especially Christian athletes. Once I got saved, and developed a personal relationship with Christ, I realized that Jesus is a beast, Pierre said. “So, if Jesus is a Beast, then I should be a beast in every aspect of my life…whether I’m on the baseball field or off the field. Beast Mode represents the strength that believers possess through Christ. It’s an encouragement to pick-up our crosses, follow Him, and to heartily do His work as Colossians 3:23 says.”
