Kush Powers

Kush Powers raps One More Shot

The thing I like about hip-hop music is that it allows people to express themselves in a very real way. Hip-hop can be direct to the point where you know exactly what the rapper is trying to say to you, right? There’s an artist named Kush Powers who has his act together. One listen to his song “One More Shot” and I think you’ll agree he’s good at what he…

KZehRah the thinking man’s rapper

KZehRah intrigues me. He describes himself as a “secular rapper and producer turned Christian” who at one time “could be found assisting the engineer of Wu-Tang’s cult-classic album 36 Chambers.” Of course I had to know more, so I asked some questions and got some answers. What did assisting the engineer entail? “As a client at Firehouse Studios in NYC, I basically became an intern to Yoram Vazan and I…

Rep offers up Co-Laborations featuring Can’t Breathe

Rep is known for his “To Be Honest” ministries. Here’s what Rep has to say about his new project, Co-Laborations.  One of the songs on the project is called “Can’t Breathe.”  With all of the craziness of racial tension and social justice going on in our world, this one phrase stuck out to me.
