This week's new release:
Jayreed - Holy (EP)
Genre: Gospel Rap / Holy Hip-Hop
Notes: Digital Only
Born James Wilbert Fleetwood Jr., JAYREED (which stands for Just A Young Radical Evangelist Executing Deliverance) started his Christian Rap ministry in 2003. At the time, he was enlisted in the U. S. Navy aboard the U. S. S. Ronald Reagan. Longing to share his faith with others, it was a common thing to catch the fiery MC ministering to others through music. One day while at sea he had an experience that would convince him to devote his entire life to his “Holy Hip Hop” ministry. During a performance of his song, “Everlasting Life,” a young man burst out of the crowd and fell to his knees, asking God to forgive his sins. Shortly after, a number of different people came seeking prayer for salvation and deliverance. It was a scene that he would never forget. This event made it clear that the Navy was only a temporary stop for the enthusiastic minister. The Holy EP (available in digital format only) is a precursor to his forthcomingfull-length album entitled "Further Upon The Rock" slated for October 2010.
