Here are a couple new artists that were on the scene at the Urban Soul Cafe after party:
King is a group out of Miami, Florida. FabGirl Sabrina pretty much went wild when these young men appeared on stage. Sabrina and the FabGirl’s roomie Sophie (a singer as well) are from South Florida. The girls were excited to see such an awesome group! The group mixes hip hop and r&b sounds (Think T-Pain, Day 26, and Pretty Ricky) with gospel. These boys can actually SING, and there’s not really a group out there like them right now. Make sure to support them by buying their album. http://www.4kingmusic.com/
First up are my new fav group the Still Trill Christians. Still Trill Christians (STC) were the first gospel hip-hop group to appear and perform on BET’s 106 Park. STC are from Texas and were all intially secular (non-christian) solo artists. After being called by God the group used their pasts to channel positive songs about abstinance and celibacy. Oh yeah, they not only rap they sing too.
Mixtape of the Year, 2009
Remember the Souljah Boy’s song , Crank Dat? Well, T’Jaun came up with the Christian equivalent, and church craze, ‘Crank Dat Church Boy’. With his boyish good looks and well-pulled together presentation T’Juan is posied to be gospel rap’s biggest success. You would think the Jacksonville, FL nativie, who has shared the stage with Bow Wow, Da’ Truth, and Mr. Del would be plenty cocky, but he is so humble. He shared with me how he just wants to reach young people with his music and make sure that God is pleased. Oh yeah, he did have Mixtape of the Year for gospel rap in 2009 – so I’m pretty sure his success if coming.
