116 Passion 2020

Speaking of Lecrae, he, Andy Mineo, Tedashii, and Trip Lee performed at Passion 2020 to ring in the new year. The four of them combined to do a 30-minute set and performed a number of their hits together. Check out the full concert on Rapzilla.

Aaron Cole

Aaron Cole announced his new project is coming – AOTY (All of This Yours). He revealed in a recent post that after he won New Artist of the Year he was tripping off his ego. After coming to this realization he flipped AOTY to mean All of This Yours.


TobyMac dropped his first new song since the passing of his son Truett Foster. It’s called “21 Years” which was the age of his passing. The song is brutal and gut-wrenching but a welcome reminder that children are just loaned to their parents until they can go back home. Watch the music video on Rapzilla now.

Old School

Let’s hit you with a flurry of old school news. KJ-52 has officially retired the KJ-52 monicker. Although not finished with music, he has moved to a full-time role as a pastor in his church. He just dropped Victory Lap which is his final KJ-52 project.
While one goes away, another returns. John Reuben will be releasing the tongue-in-cheek Greatest Christian Rapper Ever. This will be his second album since returning from his 7 plus year hiatus.
Finally, for the first time since 2004, Mars Ill has new music with the single “Win When.” If you don’t know this duo, they are comprised of Manchild, a ridiculously talented rapper, and producer DJ Dust.
