Sho- New Future

Posted on April 12, 2011 / by 154

Around this time, one year ago, I released my second album Lions and Liars under Reach Records. Four years ago, I officially became an artist on the label, although my friendship with all the artists and staff predates that time. Today, I bring news that is exciting, yet surprising and full of uncertainty.

 I will no longer be an artist on the Reach Records label. It’s been a wonderful four years doing business with the Reach organization, and it’s also been a pleasure to communicate the center of our joy via Hip Hop.  Through the years I have established friendships that will last a lifetime, both with Reach Records artists and staff.

 I would like to extend my utmost gratitude to all who support my music and the other artists at Reach. I trust that the LORD will establish my plans as I commit my work to him.

 It would be imprudent of me to think that this post would not bring speculation as well as gossip. I would encourage the reader to not pull out assumptions or exaggerations. That being said, here are a couple of things I would like to communicate:

  • I will still be an artist with Reach Booking (www.reachbooking.com) and travel on certain group dates w/ other Reach artist thru 2011.
  • I will continue to do concert dates and events thru 2011.
  • I will be featured on Reach projects that will be released in 2011. 
  • If you have any desire to stay afloat with some of my dealings go to www.thisishigh.com.

 

 The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

 Grace and Peace,

Amisho Baraka L.

Above all else allow God's will to be done in your life. I've been a dedicated fan and listener of the 116 Clique since 2006 and I always promote your music. I've grown in many ways spiritually with you all also and consider Lecrae, Trip Lee, Tedashii, and you Sho as my closet of brothers although I don't know you personally. May the Lord continue to guide you in all or your ways and continue to make all your paths straight. God Speed.

Immediate reaction is to feel sad that you're no longer with Reach but I know God will still use you for great things wherever He's taking you. Either way you've been a blessing.
And by the way, Liars Anthem is one of my favourite tracks of all time. God bless you bro, and thank you for giving yourself for His service

Sho, your music has been a blessing to me and my walk with Christ. I look forward to what the Lord has in store for you and I am encouraged that you have the confidence to move onto new things that the Lord is calling you too even when you were already established in a Godly ministry. I look forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for you.

In Him,

Much Love-your brother in Christ-Rob

Aw man, I`ll cherish the heartfelt songs I have by you, and will be looking forward to the features you`ll be having this year. I know God`s going to use you in bigger and better ways as our time draws to a close, and I pray that Jesus will continue to help you bear whatever comes your way.

Just know that your ministry has impacted this life amidst all the sin and temptation that`s flying around (sometimes literally)

Blessings and peace
