So things are getting interesting and we need to talk about it. Kanye West has been trending all weekend with his album “Jesus is King.” There are millions of people talking about Jesus Being King which is pretty amazing. Also, on Friday, Kanye’s Sunday Service did a live stream where incredible gospel music was played and midway through a pastor gave a complete and amazing sermon. I can already see the slews of comments coming against this, and maybe you’re right, BUT, something’s happening through Kanye and people are being affected. He’s encroaching our space, how are we going to receive him?
We interviewed Rhyan Lamarr, director of the film Canal Street and the creator of “Better Days” with 1K Phew. If you’ve seen the short film, you know that it follows the story of Phew’s character through some life or death situations. Well, this film is just the beginning of a 10 film CHH cinematic universe. The craziest part is that Lamar said if you think of the rapper you’d like to see become a part of the story, they are probably in the upcoming films.
“Andy Mineo, KB, and Social Club were out in the O.C. Around that time Ruslan and John Givez were there too. I brought out execs and their mouths were wide open. Of course, they wanted to figure out how to make money off of this.” He continued, “How many bottles of liquor do you see? How many blunts do you see? Nothing is here, this is a sober crowd going hard for Christ. Tell me if Drake can do that to a sober crowd?”

Theo Blue released his music video for “The Same” on Martin Luther King Day. He had A LOT to say about his experiences as an African American in the societal divide and class system of the U.S. Read Below: “Then don’t give them a reason to escalate,” the thought in my head as I listened to a colleague complain about yet another encounter with the authorities. I didn’t say anything in response to him. I simply let the conversation end. As I left, I turned to my wife and recalled a time when two cops stopped me for half of […]
Darrell Dominic features Dre Murray on this song to speak on the issue of people leaving the Christian faith. The topic hits home for many believers as most, if not all have experienced a loved one leaving the faith for a multitude of reasons. Darrell Dominic approaches this song with the mentality of being loyal to Christ as he was loyal to the streets before knowing Christ. The difference is the streets is cold and isn’t loyal to those who live that lifestyle. While Christ is loving and loyal to His followers. Watch Darrell Dominic Below:
