I WENT OUT TO SAN ANTONIO WITH TRE9 THERE WAS A MARTIN LUTHER KING CONVENTION. THE FOCUS OF THE EVENT WAS MUSIC AND KEEPING THE MEMORY OF DR. KING ALIVE. THEY WERE PROMOTING THE MARCH THEY DO EVERY MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY IN SAN ANTONIO WHICH IS THE LARGEST ACROSS THE NATION EACH YEAR. I HELPED TRE9 LEAD A MUSIC BUSINESS SEMINAR AND MARKET THE MUCH LUVV RECORD LABEL AND 4930 STUDIOS. WE PASSED OUT A TON OF FLYERS AND BUSINESS CARDS. GOT TO CATCH UP WITH PAUL WALL BACK IN THE GREEN ROOM. REMEMBER PERFORMING WITH HIM BEFORE THE GLOBAL SUCCESS. STILL A PRETTY DOWN TO EARTH INDIVIDUAL. TRE9 SAT ON A PANEL DISCUSSION WITH PAUL WALL, ROB G, AND SOME OTHER IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY AS THEY TALKED ABOUT HIP HOP MUSIC AND IT'S INFLUENCE ON THE YOUTH. DIRECTLY AFTER TRE 9 AND I PERFORMED OUR SINGLE "RISE TO THE TOP" AND THE CROWD IMPRESSED WITH THE GOSPEL CONTENT. I SOLD SOME CDS AND IT WAS A BLESSING. OTHER THAN THE SPEEDING TICKET I GOT ON THE DRIVE TO SAN ANTONIO IT WAS A WONDERFUL EVENT.

AFTER REACHING BACK TO HOUSTON LATER THAT EVENING I DROVE DIRECTLY TO LIBERTY,TX TO ATTEND THE MIXTAPE RELEASE PARTY OF JP A HOUSTON BASED GOSPEL HIP HOP ARTIST WHOSE ALBUM I WAS FEATURED ON. JP IS AN ARTIST WITH SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING, THE MOVEMENT/CLOTHING LINE I STARTED WITH SOME UP AND COMING GOSPEL HIP HOP ARTISTS FROM HOUSTON,TX. JP WAS SCHEDULED TO MOVE TO AFGHANISTAN TO DO SOME WORK FOR THE NEXT YEAR, SO THIS WAS A GOING AWAY PARTY AS WELL. OTHER ARTISTS IN THE BUILDINF WERE RBS, JESUS FREEKS, RICHARD HOLLIS, FOM, S.T.C., LITARODI AND A FEW OTHERS. IT WAS A DAY THAT STARTED AT 6AM, AND ENDED AFTER MIDNIGHT, THAT IS THE LIFE OF AN ARTIST ON THE GRIND. THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH!

MUCH LUVV RECORDS AND TEAM IMPACT JOIN FORCES!

Photobucket


THESE GUYS RIP PHONE BOOKS IN HALF, MAKE HOT WATER BOTTLES EXPLODE, BREAK RACKS OF ICE AND MORE!! IT'S TEAM IMPACT. ON SUNDAY THE 11TH OF JANUARY TRE9 AND I WENT OUT TO THE ATASCOCITA LOCATION OF THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE WOODLANDS TO PERFORM AND GET THE KIDS EXCITED ABOUT THE CONCERT WE WILL BE DOING AT REALITY WEEKEND FEBRUARY 7TH 2009. WE DID THE TWO MORNING YOUTH SERVICES.

WE HAD HELP FROM TWO OF THE GUYS FROM TEAM IMPACT, CHIP MINTON, AND TREY TALLEY. ME AND TRE9 HANDLED THE RAPPING, AND TEAM IMPACT BROKE BASEBALL BATS, BLEW UP SOME HOT WATER BOTTLES, AND GOT THE CROWD WET AS THE SQUEEZED OPEN COKE CANS WITH THEIR BARE HANDS!

THE BAT I AM HOLDING IN THE PICTURE IS THE ACTUAL BAT CHIP MINTON BROKE OVER HIS LEG. I HAD THE GUSY AUTOGRAPH IT FOR ME AND IT IS CURRENTLY IN MY CAR AS SOME ADDED GODLY PROTECTION!

TREY DID THE SPEAKING FOR BOTH YOUTH SERVICES TELLING THE KIDS ABOUT SALVATION AND THAT EVEN IF THEY WERE THE BEST PERSON ON THE ENTIRE PLANET, WITHOUT JESUS TO COVER EVEN THE LITTLE SINS THEY DID THEY WOULD NOT ENTER HEAVEN. IT WAS A COMPELLING APPROACH AND THAT MORNING 50-55 KIDS GAVE THEIR LIFE TO CHRIST!

I WOULD LOVE TO DO MORE SHOWS WITH TEAM IMPACT, BUT I DON'T THINK THEY ARE READY FOR RAPPERS! I'M GOING TO CONTACT THEM AND TELL THEM MY INTEREST. LET'S SEE IF GOD MAKES THE CONNECTION HAPPEN! YOU GUYS BE PRAYING.

I REALLY ENJOY WATCHING THE HEAD PASTOR OF FELLOWSHIP OF THE WOODLANDS KERRY SHOOK ON TELEVISION SO IT IS AN HONOR TO BE PERFORMING AT ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL CHURCHES IN THE CITY OF HOUSTON. OUR BOOKING AGENT FOR MUCH LUVV RECORDS JIMMIE MCDOWELL IS A MEMBER AT THE CURCH AND VOLUNTEERS HIS TIME TO THE YOUTH MINISTRY. GOD HAS BEEN USING MUCH LUVV RECORDS IN A POWERFUL WAY!

AFTER I LEFT THE WOODLANDS I MET TRE 9 AND DENZIL OVER AT A PREDOMINATELY HISPANIC CHURCH IN MIDTOWN HOUSTON WHERE A STAFF MEMBER OF MUCH LUVV RECORDS ALBERT LAVADOR IS THE YOUTH PASTOR. (PASTORALBERT.BLOGSPOT.COM)

IT WAS A TRE 9 CONCERT BUT I USUALLY TRAVEL WITH HIM WHERE HE GOES SINCE WE HAVE SOME SOLID SONGS TOGETHER, PERFORMING AS A TEAM OR EVEN SOMETIMES HELPING HIM AS HIS HYPE MAN. HE PERFORMED A SONG CALLED "YES WE CAN," FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. A POLITICAL TRACK ABOUT OBAMA AND CURRENT EVENTS THAT HAS HAD CHRISTIAN HIP HOP SITES BUZZING.

New CDs back,70s 80s Party and Silverlake Youth Lock-in

Photobucket

Friday January 9th I was blessed to get back my new order of Rise to the top cds. It has 4 new cuts from the previous version of Rise to the top including "Who is ya lovin," and "This is the best feeling" a deep track with an Avril Lavigne sample. This cds will be available online and on itunes shortly so stay tuned.

After picking up the cds from 4930 Studios, I went directly to a 70s,80's Youth New Years Kick off party put together by DW promotions at Lilly of the Valley Baptist Church. Artists in the building were Rage, Richard Hollis, Trevor Lee and more. I took the time this performance to tell my testimony of getting tazed by police, and then lead everyone in the prayer of salvation. It was a blessing.

After that service me and Trevor Lee drove over to a youth lock-in at Silverlake church in Pearland and stumbled up on a concert with about 200 kids. We promoted www.dasouth.com flyers and 4930studios.com flyers. I performed Rise to the top to kick off the teen talent show. The first kid sang "Never would of made it" accapella and ran away with the competition. They blessed us with nachos, bbq chicken sandwiches and all the capri suns I could drink! God is good! I sold some cds and got to see Rev Rob, Richard Hollis and Dat Boy Jesse perform.
