Christon Gray has announced the release date and title of his Fo Yo Soul Recordings debut album.
On Feb. 26, 2016, Gray will drop The Glory Album, according to this “Runnin'” freestyle video, which follows the “Guard’s Up” freestyle he put out last month.
Gray, whose debut solo LP, School of Roses, peaked at No. 44 on the Billboard 200, unveiled this June that he had signed with legendary gospel artist Kirk Franklin’s label Fo Yo Soul, which is under Sony Music Entertainment.
“We just want to align ourselves with talent that we think still has a very current, relevant voice in the culture that can help us push this agenda,” Franklin told Rapzilla this summer. “We want to make God famous, in terms of, him being on the lips of people’s mouths, and we think that Christon has that type of unique gift as an emcee, as a songwriter and as a singer who can be part of trying to make that conversation continue — even at a time of when the dialogue is harder to have.”
