BIO 

Adam Grason is a designer for Disney's creative services. Adam is also the owner of Zadok Fourty Four, a design studio focused on print, apparel, and illustration. Originally from Kansas City, he now resides in Florida with his wife Christina and son Harper. 

INTERVIEW 

Tell us a little bit about the path to where you are today. 

Well my path has been a huge long journey. I grew up in a Christian home and remember seeing my mom worship and read the Bible every single morning. But even with that, it didn't take long for me to go my own way and start flirting with sin. We lived a relatively low income life in a really rough area of Orlando called Pine Hills. Gang violence ran rampant and life for a white dude was tough. My entire childhood was filled with art and drawing and I would use it as a way to escape. I eventually landed an opportunity to go to a better high school based on my art and it really helped shift my mentality about what my life could be like. 

I later found the Lord in my junior year of high school and it has eternally changed my art forever. I never did go to college and it has allowed me to fully claim that my abilities are God given. No school can claim to have crafted me as an artist, only God can. 

My career has been a journey. In short, I went from designing for churches to designing for some of the largest companies in the US. I've had the pleasure of doing work for Krispy Kreme, Chevrolet, ESPN, Disney and the one and only Reach Records. 

 

 

What does a typical day of work look like for you?

I wake up around 5 AM. Most mornings I crawl into my garage and throw some weight around...on lazy mornings I crawl to the espresso machine. I'll get in a lil devo with the Lord. It varies, I dont have a set way I spend time with Jesus. I make breakfast for myself and my wife and head off to Disney at 8 AM, where I am currently in a TA role. Once I'm working, I'm locked in. I check my email a lot! But I hit work hard and enjoy the process each project brings. I get off of work from Disney and come home to freelance...busy life for me.

Did you have a specific moment when you realized that you wanted to design/illustrate?   

When I was working for churches, I reached a point where I hit a block and just couldnt keep going on in the way I was. It was in that same time that I lost my lil brother, my grandmother and an adopted baby (the birth mom decided to keep him). It was in that point, that I realized that I had to really establish a career as an artist. 

What risks or hard decisions have you had to make to live unashamed? 

With no formal training, I made the jump into going fulltime as a freelance artist. It was a huge risk because I had no plan, no backup plan and no one knew who I was. But it was the Lord and it was because of that moment that I am where I am now. I could have easily shrunk back and lived a safe life. I could have kept going on with business as usual or I could break out and trust God. A huge unashamed moment. 

What does the unashamed life look like in your context? 

It's a life that moves by the winds of the Spirit. For me, my faith is something I have no worry about. People know I love Jesus and stand for Him, the real truth to my unashamed comes through more in my decisions. As an artist, there is a lot of risk and living unashamed means not shrinking back from making tough decisions or making those risks. It also looks like a humble person working in a field that births egos and pride. For my art, I honestly rarely do any fully "christian" art. I see my work as a representation of living unashamed because I have no fear in designing art that is inspired by my relationship with Jesus. I dont need to throw Christian symbols or terms into my art for my art to be filled with the Spirit. I firmly believe anything I create is from the overflow of my love for God, whether it's an illustration of trees or if it's a product label.

How have you worked through success? Failure?

It's a toughy. It would be great to say I have never let success get to my head, but I am proud to say it has never stayed there. Whether its success or failure, I understand that God is the grand architect. With success, I firmly understand that if I let it get to me and puff me up, that in a moment I can be painfully humbled. If it's failure, I embrace that character building moment and move on.

 

Have you had any mentors along the way?

The only mentors I have ever really had were in my youth with my Youth Pastor George Sotolongo and Senior Pastor Carlos Sarmiento. I haven't had any official design mentors, but if I had to say designers that have helped shape me, I could easily say Rogie King has been huge for me. 

 

 

Do you have any favorite books?  

Anything AW Towzer, Glory of Christ by John Owen and 

The Prophecy of Isaiah by J. Alec Motyer as of right now.

 

 

 

 

 

What verses or passages in Scripture have sustained or encouraged you? 

The entire book of Hosea feels like a commentary of my life...and no I didn't have a girl that cheated on me. The Lord has used that book to expose darkness in my own heart and areas where I have committed unfaithfulness to the Lord. I can easily relate to Gomer and Hosea being God. No matter how many times I may turn, He is willing to take me back and even buy me back by the blood of Jesus. 

 

 

Can you offer some encouragement to other unashamed believers out there?

Never let anyone dictate what being unashamed means for your life. You know the areas where your heart tries to hide and only you can break those by being unashamed. Work hard and live without any regrets. Give your all in your craft no matter what it is...you don't need to be an artist to have influence in your craft. We have a finite amount of time on this earth to make an impact and once we are gone, we are gone. I have chosen to be the best at what I do for the single purpose that unless I am successful, my impact is greatly decreased. Take advantage of the opportunities to share your faith by your actions. I have found that my impact on sharing my faith is best when I live my life for God versus simply saying a dialogue and calling it a day. Lastly always remain teachable...you are never too good to be a student and humility needs to be embraced...trust me God will humble you. Live unashamed in the freedom Jesus bought for us.

  

"Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain."

1 Corinthians 15:58

Tedashii X New Single X Dark Days, Darker Nights ft. Britt Nicole http://www.reachrecords.com/news/show/Tedashii-X-New-Single-X-Dark-Days-Darker-Nights-ft.-Britt-Nicole  

A Word From Tedashii on Below Paradise: 

"In March of 2013 I had the worst day of my life. The loss of my son changed me forever. I experienced grief and sorrow to the depth of my soul. The veil was lifted, the smoke cleared and all I had was pain. Instantly phrases like, "It's all good" or "It'll be ok" were cliche and, at best, empty promises. The comfort of life with no pain was gone and I saw the world in an entirely new way. I felt forsaken, alone, and in a place of darkness that has been kept masked by a focus on only the good side of this life. The reality of being a Christian and suffering so harsh a thing was hard for me to grasp.

This album is my "journal" shared publicly with all of you during this difficult journey as I worked to understand all I felt, experienced, and believed. I am human, I am hurt, I am His. By His grace I am what I am. I pray this will be an album all can feel, even if you can't relate, and be moved to true emotions about the reality of life in a harsh world with a loving God, Below Paradise."

- Tedashii

The 116 Life X Keone & Mari Madrid http://www.reachrecords.com/news/show/The-116-Life-X-Keone-Mari-Madrid

Bio

Keone and Mariel Madrid are choreographers with a heart for the Lord. You can see their work anywhere from Urban Dance Camps, to Hyundai commercials, to So You Think You Can Dance. Keone and Mari currently reside in San Diego. 

Tell us a little bit about the path to where you are today. 

KM: Man, well I definitely never thought I'd be where I am today. I was a total "jock" in high school and played all sorts of sports. Basketball was my main thing, so when I started dancing it was a bit of a surprise to all who knew me. I think you can count on one hand how many male hip hop dancers there were at my school. Dance was just a side fun thing for me but after years of putting in work to get better, God just continually gave me opportunity after opportunity. What we do in the dance business did not exist when I first started, so it wasn't something I thought of aspiring to. We're the blessed generation that got to unintentionally invent this sort of Youtube choreography phenom thing.  

MM: There are a lot of moments, often when we're sitting in a plane about to take off to some far away place for work, and I am just floored by what we get to do.  I never in my life guessed that I would be dancing as a profession, I always just did it for fun and out of the simple love for it.  Then to have it interwoven with the man of my dreams and Jesus coming into my life makes it even more unbelievable; like it's too good.  How it happened was a friend of mine posted a video of my choreography from a class I taught.  At that time I had no idea what youtube was, but it got a lot of hits and led to more teaching opportunities.  More opportunity led to more open doors, led to meeting my husband, led to me meeting the Lord, and us building this life together in our shared art, careers, and marriage.  I went to art school for creative writing and ended up having this beautiful path emerge out of left field, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

What does a typical day of work look like for you? 

Well we sort of have different kinds of days. Travel ones and days at home: Days at home are like this: wake up and spend time in prayer and in the Word. Do any emails, music search, social media, online type of stuff that we should be taking care of. Time with our doggie. Jump into the gym to do any workouts and/or jump into the studio to choreograph for a couple hours. Depending on the day we would usually have rehearsal at night stemming from anywhere to 3-7 sometimes more hours. Schedule is pretty sporadic depending on the season, traveling, making videos, projects, jobs, etc. 

Did you have a specific moment when you realized that you wanted to pursue dance as a vocation? 

KM: Up until 2010 dance wasn't the plan for my wife (then girlfriend) and I to do this as a career. We both were actually about to quit and go back to school to do the "typical" path towards another "safe" job. Mari would go into nursing and myself into sports medicine. We actually were creating a video that was supposed to be our "last hoorah" kind of thing. It was a piece inspired by Matthew 5:14-16. After we posted the video there was a clear message that we couldn't stop. God stepped in and said NOPE... you're doing this... Glorify me and I will provide for you. Since 2010 our careers have definitely taken off and it's been one blessed journey so far.

MM: Yes to everything Keone said.  We had a time where we were preparing for a different life and God definitely stepped in and showed us not only what direction He wanted us to do, but why. 

 

What risks or hard decisions have you had to make to live unashamedly?

KM: Plenty: turning down jobs, not dancing to certain music, "going out" with colleagues, hanging around certain crowds, etc. Being a Christian itself brings it's challenges, but being a dancer and choreographer in the entertainment industry AND being Christian definitely presents it's every day battles. 

MM: To add to this, as a woman, the challenges are crazy.  The industry that we're in is very male dominated and it can get hard to not feel swallowed up in it and stay confident in yourself.  I'm so happy to have Keone because he knows me so well.  He builds me up and sometimes even keeps me safe from my own thoughts.  It's also an ongoing battle to keep yourself modest, stand up for what you believe in, and not let the image-oriented environment get to you.  Whether it's how you dress, how you move, how you speak, or how you think of/talk about others, I always feel tugs both ways, but know which way I want to follow.  Perspective, focus on obedience to God, and being growth oriented vs. goal oriented is vital. 

What does the unashamed life look like in your context? 

Sharing what you love, through His love. 

How have you worked through success? Failure? 

KM: Jesus spoke about this, but as we sometimes think there is only tribulation in failure, success is just as likely to tear a man down. In failure, trust in God's plan, rejoice in tribulation. In success remain humble and be thankful for God's blessings.

MM:  Trust.  Just trust, trust, trust, in God and each other.  Also, constantly checking your motives and helping keep each other accountable.  

Have you had any mentors along the way?

KM: there are so many people I've come across that have mentored me in some way... family, friends, etc. Spiritually I'd have to say our pastor, Pastor Steve Brown, and of course my wife. 

MM:  So many mentors, but I have to agree.  Our Pastor Steve Brown has taught us so much about the not only God's Word, but about how to read it, understand it, and apply it to our lives, from the big decisions, to the tiny details.  He's been a huge help for Keone and I in developing our relationship with each other and also in helping us understand our roles as artists that want to be working for the kingdom. 

Do you have any favorite books? 

KM: I love Drew Brees' book "Coming Back Stronger" | "Mere Christianity" by CS Lewis 

MM:  So many!  I was a lit major haha so too many.  I just love a good story that is well told.  Language has such power to be a beautiful influence if the writer is so inclined.

What verses or passages in Scripture have sustained or encouraged you? 

Philippians 4:13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Matthew 5:14-16, Proverbs 3:5-62, Corinthians 10:5, Philippians 4:6-7, Isaiah 61:1-4 

Can you offer some encouragement to other unashamed believers out there? 

Keep loving on others with your gifts because you never know what kind of lives you're affecting. God can use ANYthing. Imagine what He's using you for now :)

You don't have to love what you do, to do it with love.  Brother Lawrence author of practicing the presence of God said, "God regards not the greatness of our work but the love it is done with." So what is there to love? If what we do provides for people it is never an insignificant thing.  The means by which God provides for His world is through the labor of His people. To do everything unto him is to work like our lives are not ours but His.  He see's what we do and cares how we do it therefore we give our best.  It's when we give "100" God is honored and this world impacted.

Bio

 

After winning two NCAA titles and more games than any player in college basketball history, Maya was the NCAA's Academic All-American of the Year and drafted #1 by the Minnesota Lynx in the 2011 WNBA Draft. As the 2011 WNBA Rookie of the Year and an All-Star Starter, less than five months after graduating from UCONN, she helped the franchise capture its first WNBA Championship. That Spring she added Euroleague Champion to her resumé. Only one year later, she added Olympic Gold as a part of Team USA at the London Olympics. Playing again with the Shanxi Flames, Maya is in the hunt for a second WCBA title. In 2013 Maya and the Minnesota Lynx captured their second WNBA Championship with Maya earning Finals MVP honors in the process.  Armed with fire, polish and integrity, Maya is Generation Next; repping the Jordan Brand and chosen by Michael himself, she is one of the game's most amplified crossover stars.

 

Interview

 

Tell us a little bit about the path to where you are today.

I grew up in a single-parent home with a lot of extended family in Jefferson City,  Missouri.  To keep me busy while she cooked dinner, my mom put up a toy basketball hoop in the living room. I was a very active and energetic kid who played every sport I could get my hands on.  By the age of eight I realized I loved basketball more than the other sports and that was the beginning of a nine year journey of competitive amateur ball.   Seeking greater job opportunities, my mom moved our family to Metro-Atlanta when I was 12 and I then began to have access to some very competitive AAU teams.  I worked, played and trained every summer and school year and ended up having a very successful high school career.  The Lord was growing me and my mom also as we started to really seek the Lord in a deeper way as we were “on our own” away from the solid Christian family I grew up around.  I played my college ball all the way in Connecticut where the Lord blessed me with some amazing coaches, teammates, friends and mentors through a Christian sports ministry called Athletes in Action.  Through this support system I developed greatly as a leader, person and disciple of Christ.  Upon graduating, I was drafted #1 to Minnesota and it has been a challenging, exciting, and prayerful process as I navigate the waters of early adulthood. It’s been amazing to see what the Lord has done already, and I know He still has greater things for the future.

What does a typical day of work look like for you?

A typical day for me depends on what part of the year we’re talking about.  I live in 3 places all over the world a year.  I am “in season” 8.5-9 months out of the year on two different continents which comprises on-court practices with world class athletes, weight training, traveling to different cities to compete in regular season and playoff games, interviews, community events, etc.

Did you have a specific moment when you realized that you wanted to play in the WNBA?

I’ve  been a fan of the WNBA since it’s birth in 1997.  The moment I saw Cynthia Cooper, Sheryl Swoopes, Tina Thompson, Lisa Leslie and all the other women of the WNBA, I knew I wanted to play as they did when I grew up.  I was too excited when I was able to compete against Lisa Leslie in an exhibition game when I was a freshman at UConn and she was on the Olympic National Team.  I played against Sheryl Swoops in her last season in the WNBA when I was a rookie.  I was honored to compete against Tina Thompson in the last game of her WNBA career this past season, and I was coached by Cynthia Cooper when I was on the U20 USA Basketball team.  Having those experiences were really dream come true moments where I was able to appreciate the role models they were for me growing up. 

What risks or hard decisions have you had to make to live unashamed? 

Growing up in a team sport culture there’s often the pressure to “fit in” with what everyone else is doing.  In our broken world, there’s plenty of opportunity to say YOLO and live recklessly.  Not going with the crowd and facing the reality of being alone for a while can be scary.  But it’s in those times where the Lord met me and His presence and truth of His word filled my heart, knowing my obedience and loyalty to Him pleased Him.  And through it all, He faithfully brought me friends to live unashamed with.

What does the unashamed life look like in your context?

As a public figure, I depend daily on God to fill me with humility. I believe the best way I can be a role model is by living an authentically, God-dependent lifestyle. Acknowledging God and his character in a relevant way is a priority and privilege everyday.  How I treat others, not thinking too highly of myself to be a servant, and being aware of when the culture around me tries to place me on a throne that only God should sit.

How have you worked through success? Failure?

Experiencing the highs and lows and daily grind of sports is very different with Christ as your Lord vs anything else as lord in your life.  Thankfully, through most of my career I’ve learned that my identity is in God as his daughter and not in who the world says I am.  This doesn’t mean that losing doesn’t hurt and winning doesn’t feel great.  But I know that in the end God is using it all for His glory and my good somehow.  I’ve been blessed with some great coaches and mentors that have helped learn how to handle failure and success.  When I miss the mark, whether on the court or in my relationships or personally, I know God has plenty of grace for me and I leave it at the cross and process through how to be better next time I face that challenge.

Have you had any mentors along the way? 

My first home church in Atlanta had a huge impact on my personal walk.  In college, I gained a great mentor and friends through Athletes in Action and I’ve played for some awesome coaches that taught me how to play the game with class and respect.

Do you have any favorite books?

I love reading, I’m always reading at least a couple books at a time. I am currently reading Mary Kassian’s Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild exploring the topic of godly womanhood in our crazy culture.  The Boundaries series by Dr. Townsend and Cloud are great resources that have helped me gain wisdom in relationships.  Crazy Love by Francis Chan, Radical by David Platt, Wild Goose Chase by Mark Batterson and With by Skye Jethani were all awesome books I’ve read over the last 4 years.  Always keeping my nose in my ESV Study Bible.  Tactics by Greg Koukl.  Just did an awesome study in the book of Daniel with our WNBA chaplains and a teammate this last championship season.

What verses or passages in Scripture have sustained or encouraged you?

Col 3:23-24 is a part of Scripture that I’ve incorporated into my autograph.  Every time I sign I get to leave that person with a piece of truth about my ultimate motivation.  I’m confident God is using that somehow to bless others and me.

Rom 8:28 is a passage that I always go back to that reminds me of God’s goodness and is a real source of hope for me when things don’t make sense or if a painful situation arises.  It also makes me feel grateful that no experience in my life or in other believer’s lives are wasted.  God is sovereign and faithful.

Can you offer some encouragement to other unashamed believers out there?

Be diligent over your heart and remain grounded in the Word and in community with other unashamed believers.  For me this means frequent prayer, diligent Bible study, and regularly engaging with other Christ followers so that my mind & heart stay convinced of His truth in a world that screams otherwise.  Keep growing in grace and effectiveness at connecting with others who don’t know the Lord.  And always remember, people are watching the way you live, and from one of my favorite pastor’s John Piper, “God is most glorified when we are most satisfied in Him.”  When people see you living unashamed and satisfied in God, it will reap a kingdom harvest.  Our labor is not in vain, amen!

 

“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

1 Corinthians 15:58

We wanted to take the time to address some concerns that we have received on a variety of Reach Records artwork. Like many platforms in the hip-hop genre, we too have been accused of connections to shadow organizations, such as the Illuminati.  While the purpose of this letter isn’t to walk through each piece of artwork, what we did feel is necessary is to affirm our mission to all of you.  

We want to be upfront and transparent when we say that the artistic directions we take are not a result of some mysterious occult group or made with ill-intentions. Many times the choices we make for a particular album design have deeper redemptive, Biblical themes. Other times, they are purely aesthetic choices. The Bible helps us think through these issues as we see how God created the world we live in. Genesis 2:9 tells us, "And out of the ground the LORD God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food." Scripture tells us that God is intentional about making trees, not just for functional use, food, but also for aesthetic enjoyment. The drawing of an eye, a skull, etc. are all good things that God is ultimately responsible for designing and are not made evil because of their association to evil. The world’s perversion of these things does not overcome the good intent of God's craftsmanship. They work off of borrowed capital and should not have the final say on the things God has made.

There is no doubt many temptations wait for anyone seeking to influence culture and be a light to the world.  Over the last 10 years, we have gone from doing concerts for 15 kids at boys and girls clubs to tens of thousands in sold out arenas.  We have hustled boxes of CD’s out of the trunks of our cars and now have global distribution.  At each moment along the journey, we know that the enemy is waiting to derail us from following Jesus and making our lives about Him.  

Our hope and prayer is that you would understand how hard we labor over the steps we take. Knowing our capacity to sin and go astray has caused us to dig in deep. We wish you could see all the artists working through Scripture together before shows, struggling to make the night about the Lord and not about them. Or that you could see the many hours that have been spent dissecting the moves we make. What are our motives? Are we growing cynical? Have our hearts become cold to seeing God at work? These are all questions that roll around the office and in phone calls, texts and emails. Know that we are all connected to community and accountability in our lives through friends, churches, and even as a staff. Decisions are not made flippantly and we wrestle internally, pushing back on each other constantly. We seek wisdom, pray though decisions, and know that we must answer to God at the end of it all.  

The mission of Reach has always been the Music of a Movement. A movement of the Unashamed around the world who are living out their faith in whatever place God has them, from janitors to preachers. We will not be perfect, we will make mistakes and change directions, but the ship isn’t floating aimlessly around the sea. Moves are made on purpose with prayer and honest discussion. Thank you for walking with us and caring enough to speak up. This year is our most intense ever and we can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store. Continue to live unashamedly of God's good news before a watching world. 

 

Much Love,

Reach Records

The 116 Life http://www.reachrecords.com/news/show/The-116-Life An unashamed believer is not defined by the t-shirt they wear, the job they work, or the country they live in. Instead, being unashamed means more about their character and the posture of their heart. Through an identity found in Christ, The 116 Life is marked by living out who God created them to be, using their gifts, talents, abilities, and passions all for the glory of God. No matter the occupation, these individuals are unashamed of admitting that they are a work in progress, they don’t have it all together, and they need God. They work hard to be excellent wherever God has them and unashamedly point to God while doing it.

Do you know someone that is living The 116 Life? Our hope is to gather and feature individuals that are living unashamedly for the glory of God.  Fill out this questionnaire and we will choose one per month to highlight on our website. All submissions can be sent to info@reachrecords.com with The 116 Life in the subject line. If your nomination is chosen, we will contact them and conduct a short email interview about how they are living out The 116 Life. 

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”

Romans 1:16

 Album Bio

Derek Minor had a vision for his new album. The Nashville rapper was inspired by the 1998 film Pleasantville to create a place with an idyllic exterior, but with layers of riveting subject matter underneath. His creation evolved into his dynamic new album, Minorville.

“Minorville is about this place where on the outside if you look at it, it looks really, really great,” Derek Minor says. “It looks like a cool place to go visit. But just like any city, when you get there, you soon realize that it has many different dynamics to it. You’ve got the cool area, the rich and famous area, the place in the hood, the place in the suburbs that’s moralistic and you’ve got the place where there aren’t any morals. Every part of the city has its own problems. I just want to give people a tour of my mind, my world, my city.” ...READ MORE

KB X Ride Remix X 1st & 16th http://www.reachrecords.com/news/show/KB-X-Ride-Remix-X-1st-16th
 
 

Download the "Ride Remix" Here the fourth installment of KB's 1st & 16th series! 

HGA is a group of brothers and sisters committed to an obsession.  And that obsession is to be about what God has always been about, His Glory Alone.

What started as a bible study with 7 men in a two-bed room apartment quickly grew into a citywide mini-movement.  As I reflect on the genesis of our community, I some times get emotional as it becomes more and more apparent to me that “God did it all!" We prayed that it rain in our city and God made it pour!  Young, unchurched, multi-ethnic, urban men and women abandoning their lives to take on a new life in Jesus. They felt that their youth meant one thing, we have more years to serve Jesus. God taught them that. How else could this be explained? How did we go from thieves, drug dealers, goody two shoes, players, and atheist to missionaries to Iraq, Peru, China, Costa Rica, Brazil and most dearly Tampa? I remember a time where my brothers and sisters tried to walk 15 miles to another city and share the gospel with every person they came across on the journey. Why?  For fun! (It actually didn't work. We ended up taking the bus the last 13 miles.) This is what we enjoyed. We loved Jesus, not perfectly but consistently.

This song is probably my favorite diamond thus far because I get to dedicate it to the community I love.  As we've grown in to adulthood and become husbands, wives, college students, business owners, so on and so forth. A lot has changed but what matters most has not. His glory alone is still the cry of almost every person that started with us almost 6 years ago. They said we'd grow out of this but in reality we've only grown IN to this. “HGA until the casket drops.” Join us in this most happy pursuit declaring, "His glory among the nations!"Grace to you

Please join us as we encourage and bless our brother Tedashii and his family at this time. Read the blog (below) from His Voice Global to find out how you can help.  

Tedashii’s family has suffered a terrible tragedy this month. His one year old boy passed away. As we grieve with him and his family we also want to bless them. As you know, Tedashii’s job takes him from city to city where he performs and blesses thousands of people with his art. In this time, we want to offer him the opportunity to stay home with his family, grieve, begin to heal, seek the Lord, be comforted and to comfort. The perception is that if one is a traveling musician, they have more money than they know what to do with. The fact is, that is just not true. We want to bless him with the gift of not having to worry about being on the road to make ends meet. Our goal: To provide for our brother and his family for 6 months. This means raising enough money to cover all of the family’s expenses. Join us in caring for our dear friends. Click here to donate now, designate “Tedashii” in the memo. ....READ MORE.

Album Bio

Ascend as high as you humanly can…reach the highest of heights…touch the sky…take in the air up there.  But there is something you know within. Maybe by mistake, you even get a glimpse of it.  It is the earth below you.  It’s reality.  It is the unstoppable force that brings us all to our knees sooner or later. It’s gravity.

 We fight against it because we know its function is to bring us down.  Balloons may be void of substance within, but at least they get to avoid the ground.  The mountaintop view is all we want, because darkness pervades the valley.  We don’t want to face our struggles; we want to forego the pain.  That makes gravity the enemy.  Or does it?

 On his Sixth studio album, Gravity, Lecrae tackles real life head on seeing its difficulties as proof of our frailties to lead us towards hope in the strength of God.  Gravity hits hard from the onset with Lecrae’s gritty lines and the production collaboration of Heat Academy and Joseph Prielozny beautifully blending strings and riffs on “The Drop”.  On the album’s title track, “Gravity” featuring J.R., Lecrae sums up the human experience—“we’re glued to our depravity until somebody frees us from this gravity.”  The DJ Khalil produced track “Mayday”, featuring Big K.R.I.T. and Ashthon Jones, stands out as K.R.I.T. confesses his shortcomings, Lecrae points to Jesus as the solution and Ashthon makes the song cry tears of pain and joy.  Lecrae collaborates with Mali Music, Swoope, This’l and many others, along with The Watchmen, Dirty Rice and DJ Official on production to give listeners a dynamic Hip Hop experience.  True to his faith, on the final track, “Lucky Ones”, Lecrae presents the beauty of gravity.  It’s the very thing that kept Christ on Earth to save his life.

New Blog - Who Is Derek Minor? http://www.reachrecords.com/news/show/New-Blog-Who-Is-Derek-Minor

 

With the release of his new mixtape PSA Vol. 3, you may have noticed that the artist formerly know as PRo has made a transition to his new persona Derek Minor.  Check out his latest blog that gives some insight into the new name and new direction. 

Who Is Derek Minor?

So, I’m sure by now you’re probably wondering what’s going on with thisname change.  Am I wanted by the law, do I owe back taxes, or am I goingthrough a mid life crisis? The answer is no (maybe) but after a milliontweets from confused brothers and sisters, I decided to address it. Thetruth is that, though I love what I have accomplished as PRo, I am enteringa new chapter in my career. This new chapter includes a new direction, andnew goals. But first, let me tell you how the name change happened.

As a lot of you know, I recently injured my Achilles tendon playingbasketball. Unfortunately injury is one of the risks associated withputting the team on your back, and I fell victim to that risk. Honestly, Idon’t know what my team is gonna do without me! In all seriousness, thisinjury provided me with a lot of time to assess my career, what I’daccomplished, and where I wanted to go in the future. I realized duringthat time that there was a lot more that I wanted to accomplish and that Iwas much different than the artist I was 7 years ago....READ MORE.
