King Kulture compilation raises nearly $9,000 for students in Congo
Christian hip hop is making a difference for African students in the Congo. January 31st, 2012 Rapzilla released a compilation album with the goal of raising money to benefit Ecole de la Borne, a school in the Congo. The album featured all new, unreleased, and exclusive songs by Lecrae, KJ-52, Beautiful Eulogy, Sho Baraka, Braille, Japhia Life, GRITS, K-Drama, Eshon Burgundy, and many more. The support by the Christian Hip Hop community was stronger than we anticipated being compilation projects usually are less cohesive, aren’t generally pushed by the artists on them, and historically have low sales. The project also received great coverage on the secular hip hop media outlets such as AllHipHop.com, HipHopDX.com, DJBooth.net, and others. The project went on to crack the Top 10 Hip Hop/Rap Albums on iTunes, and hit #4 on the Top Gospel Albums on AmazonMP3.
We are extremely grateful for all of the artists and producers for their contributions, and everyone who purchased the project for their support. We are honored and feel overwhelming gratification to wire nearly $9,000 to this Christian school in Congo where a great work is going on to raise kids to know the Lord and to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to a dying world.
We are excited to continue the work of King Kulture and will be releasing a new compilation project in 2013 to benefit a Christian organization in the United States, in order to assist them in their work helping people in need and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
