SEATTLE, WA...September 22, 2009...Today hip-hop extraordinaire, KJ-52, releases his newest adventure, "Five-Two Television," on BEC Recordings. This being one of his most ambitious projects to date, it features a massive 24 track-listing (24 tracks mirroring 24 hours in a day) as well as a star-studded list of guest appearances. "Five-Two Television" was co-produced by Aaron Sprinkle and KJ-52.
Those appearing on "Five-Two Television" include Theory Hazit ("Headline News At 5"), Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch ("Let's Go"), J.R. (Cross Movement Records "Calling You"), Braille ("Headline News at 11"), Da T.R.U.T.H (Cross Movement, "Swagged Out With Tags Out"), Manwell and Blanca Reyes of Group 1 Crew ("Firestarter") and Funky ("Fuego").
A project filled with many "channels," KJ-52 engages his fans with a four-act spoken-word biography, a free "mix" tape with purchase of the CD, and much more. KJ-52 has always been about sharing the Gospel and diving into Bible Studies with his fans, and this album is no different showcasing his heart for the youth. You can check out his "Firestarter" Bible studies here http://www.kj52podcast.com/.
KJ-52's debut single from this project "End of My Rope" is currently charting at Christian Rock gaining momentum. It is currently sitting at No. 17 and has several CHR stations spinning as well.
The release of the new album today is followed with media acclaim. KJ-52 has been featured on the recent cover of Crossroad Magazine (digital found here http://www.crossroadmag.com/), as well as an interview on JesusFreakHideout.com (https://www.jesusfreakhideout.com/interviews/KJ-52_2009.asp) and a podcast with DJ Wade O this past weekend (listen here).

Releasing his debut project in 2000, KJ-52 continued to do his "thing" for a total of seven projects released. Three of his four titles have scanned over 100,000 units--the only Christian hip-hop artist in history to do so. KJ-52 has become one of the most trusted names in music as a songwriter, producer, minister, and comic poet, in spite of many seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Let's not forget: He is an unabashed follower of Christ, he is white, and he is a rapper. In 2009, KJ-52 was once again nominated for the fourth consecutive year as CCM Magazine's Favorite Hip Hop Artist in the Reader's Choice poll. He also was honored with his fifth Dove Award. KJ-52 is on BEC Recordings. For more information, updates, blog, and tour dates visit: http://www.kj52.com also follow KJ-52 on Twitter: @kj52 .
