After earning a Theology degree, KB dove into Christian hip-hop, releasing a mix-tape, a widely successful debut album, and a Dove award-winning EP (for Rap/Hip Hop Song of the Year, 100). He shows no signs of slowing down – his recently released second hip-hop studio album, Tomorrow We Live, has earned media praise as “a straight masterpiece” and “KB’s first classic.” The artistry of Tomorrow We Live has brought both critical acclaim and commercial success, debuting on the Billboard charts at No. 1 on Top Christian Albums, No. 4 on Top Rap Albums, and in the top 20 on the iconic Billboard 200. KB has also achieved industry recognition as a Recording Academy featured artist on Grammy.com. His talent in the studio is matched by his high-octane live shows – he has toured with Lecrae, Tenth Avenue North, and other top Reach Records artists.
VIDEO: Zone Out – Of the video Zone Out, below, KB said, “Justin Martyr, an early church apologist, said, ‘They can kill us, but they can’t hurt us.’ This simply means that no matter what happens to the person that has zoned out, his life and hope are always out of reach of true danger. For his life and hope are safe in his savior. Whether we live or die, we will be with our Lord.” In the second half of the video, see if you can find Pastor Frank!
Propaganda’s biography from the Humble Beast website: “From the same soil that grew Jim Morrison, Tony Hawk, NWA, Snoop, & Kendrick Lamar, grows another LA native, Propaganda. What do you say about Propaganda? He’s a poet, political activist, husband, father, academic, & emcee. With LA flowing through his veins & armed with a bold message, Propaganda has assembled a body of work that challenges his listeners with every verse & reaches across the spectrum of pop culture. From aggressive battle raps to smooth introspective rhythms, Propaganda’s music will cause you to nod your head, but more importantly it will stretch your mind & heart.”
VIDEO: Excellence – Christians are called to excellence because God only makes excellence.
With a fresh sound and authentic presence, Lauren Lee can change the atmosphere of a room. Never one to hold anything back, she gives it all with transparency and passion. A worshipper who believes in the power of one moment with Jesus, Lauren has dedicated her life to leading others in a pursuit of Him. Lauren has been given incredible opportunities to do just that on a national level through other artists’ projects (Wrote Constant One by Steffany Gretzinger, appeared on Heart Beat by Da’ Truth and Lecrae).
Lauren released See in October of 2016. It is a complete reflection of Lauren’s heart not only for God, but also for the church; an album navigating through the real questions, doubts, disappointments, and the hope we can find if we only look.
