Atlanta, Georgia based Holy Hip Hop Music has entered
into a strategic alliance with Nashville-based EMI Gospel for global distribution
of gospel Hip-Hop through EMI CMG Marketing.
The first album to be released through the new
deal will be Taking The Gospel To The Streets.
The 12-track effort will be executive produced
by Christopher "Play" Martin of Kid-N-Play fame. The album will also
feature live video clips from the 2004 Holy Hip Hop Music Awards.
"The diversity of Holy Hip Hop to be featured
is sure to raise eyebrows and garner applause, particularly in radio where PD's
are earnestly searching, now more than ever before, for unique Holy Hip Hop
tracks," Martin said.
The album also features the "12 Ministers
of the Gospel," who come from the North, South, East and West to ensure
the album contains a diverse sound.
Taking The Gospel To The Streets hits
stores on June 29.
