The tour, which is sponsored by Internet website Visit Florida, also features guest appearances by other 'holy Hip-Hop' artists, including Noah, Urban D and west coast Tha Gim.
Kurtis Blow, a pioneering Hip-Hop artist is now a licensed minister and preaches around the country. He will perform new music from the Hip Hop Ministry compilation album and debut songs from his new group The Trinity, which consists of Blow, Louisville Kentucky rapper Chris Flow and Ricky B.
The Trinity is preparing their upcoming release Just Do It, which features appearances by Ted Mills of Blue Magic, rapper T-Bone, Mr. Solo of the Gospel Gangstaz, B.B.Jay, Blue Chip of the Righteous Riders, and Pettidee.
"The tour will be a great opportunity to promote the music, and ministry but first and foremost we want to see lives changed," Trinity member Ricky B. said.
Both Ricky B. and Chris Flow are also preparing solo albums. Ricky B's Great Gains is due in stores August 14, while Chris Flow's Kentucky Fried Faith will hit stores later this year.
"The Hip Hop Ministry Tour" is a God sent ministry that will bring the Hip Hop generation to salvation," Chris Flow said.
