Gift Receipts?



Sure, it was a merry Christmas, Jesus is the reason for the season (I never want to hear that again, btw), and it's all about family. I had a great time with family. And I got all of YOUR text messages (also banned for next year). And we exchanged presents...well, sort of. Our family actually adopted another family and bought presents for them, but we still gave a lil bit to each other.

And yesterday was National Return/Regifting Day, so I want to know...What is the most ridiculous gift you received this year?

Try this: what did you give someone that you KNOW they are going to return?

This could get interesting...

Long as you didn't get THIS you are cool

106 & Park...Gospel?


Yes...

106 & Park Goes Gospel

I have a lot of thoughts about this (joys and concerns), and as an independent artist I always shudder to think how much red tape I'll have to cross to end up on here. How many artists NOT (insert adjective) will end up on there? Am I jealous already?

I always have to check myself at the door to make sure I'm not hating (I am from Chicago...I mean....Haterville, USA). Stay focused, work hard, and PureMusic will get where God needs it. And as always...

RECORDS.

A hot record cures the common cold. I'm excited about BET's new venture, and I'm hoping it'll last. What on earth will that look like? I could talk for hours about this

VIDEO: Ambassador - "Gimme Dat"

Good people. Most folks who have never even heard of gospel rap have heard of Cross Movement. He along with Lecrae and Da T.R.U.T.H. are helping to open a lot of doors for guys coming up (read: J.Kwest). Now that 106 & Park will be doing a Gospel Show (yes) this will open a lot of doors. Hopefully this blows. Check it out.



What do you think about this? All biases are welcome...

Congrats to Shaun King and Courageous Church!

Months ago, they made an effort to donate 500 school uniforms and 500 toys to the underprivileged children of Atlanta Public Schools. I got the emails and posted up here for us to make donations to this very worthy cause. I join them in praising God for their SUCCESS in this venture. Not only did they pass out the uniforms and toys, but a community came together in ways we rarely witness. It was so impressive that FOX, ABC, and NBC all picked it up, now the internet is going nuts. AP scooped the story and now Morehouse Man Shaun King is EVERYWHERE. I even found him here...

FORBES MAGAZINE COVERAGE

and don't forget to check out his blog. It's one of my daily reads. Link is on the side as well.
