About KJ-52:
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.

Releasing “Five-Two Television” in September 2009, KJ-52’s project was said to be “making a run for best rap album of the year,” and debuted at #14 on Billboard's Heatseaker's chart. KJ-52 is on BEC Recordings. For more information, updates, blog, and tour dates visit: also follow KJ-52 on Twitter: @kj52 .

About Group 1 Crew:
A self-professed entertainer, a pop diva, and a bona fide producer: that’s the makeup of breakout urban sensation Group 1 Crew, three everyday Latinos who rose above their circumstances and the middle-of-the-road to become one of the most exciting aggregates in faith-based music. Their 2008 release, Ordinary Dreamers (2009 Dove-winning “Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year”), the trio’s second album for Fervent Records, shattered any and all preconceptions created by their out-of-the-box, Dove-winning debut, Group 1 Crew (2008 "Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year"), to position itself as one of the most unordinary offerings of the moment—an amalgam of rhythm and rhyme that takes the best of urban pop and hip-hop and turns them upside down. G1C challenge people to dream and pursue the calling God has given them. For more information, visit .
