✪ KSON ✪ Debut Album “Light In Me”

Chris Treborn & KSON went by different stage names before they left California.  They were also in a group called 2cHe (Two Christians Helping Everyone).  Although they have gone their separate paths, they have remained on the same mission, using the same tool; Hip-Hop.

KSON stands for King’s Son and originates from three scriptures;

​1 Thessalonians 2:12 – We exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory.

Psalm 47:7 – For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm!​

2 Corinthians 6:18 – I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.

Originally from Northern California he started rapping in 2003. ​A year later he entered a singing competition called “Teen Talent” and won second place in the Nation for male vocals. After the success and encouragement from his peers, he went on to record a demo with producer Adam French; with that demo he toured Northern and central California through 2004 and 2005. In 2006 he moved to Tulsa Oklahoma were he worked with producer Antjuan Robinson. Taking time to grow his faith he served as a youth leader in several churches. In 2010 he co-founded the group Apagee, which released a self-titled EP; produced by Michael Todd. The group’s accomplishments included air time on radio stations,   Write ups in magazines ( The Urban Tulsa and Variance Magazine ) and the honor of winning a Absolute Best of Tulsa Award for being the best Blues and R&B group for 2010. ​In addition to the awards and publicity, Apagee ministered with national acts that include KJ-52, Group One Crew, Seventh Day Slumber, Everyday Sunday, I am Empire and many more. In 2012 the group felt lead to focus on solo projects and went in different directions. In response to this KSON began writing for the up coming album “Light In Me” set to release in 2013.

 

In anticipation of KSON’s debut album, Chris Treborn asked him about his project.

How did you come up with the name of this project?

The projects name was inspired by Ephesians 5:8 & Matthew 5:14. As believers we have responsibility to share the hope that’s in us, that light is the hope in Jesus Christ.

How long have you been working on this project?

The project was started in February 2013.

Who did you collaborate with on this project?

I worked with two great producers on the album; Bishop Chase and Rob Costelow. The featured artist include J Royal, Big C, D-Will, Sin, Willy Echo, Kendall Dean, Melo V, and C4R.

Where can everyone buy your debut album when it comes out?

It will be on iTunes and ksonmusic.com

When does “Light In Me” officially come out?

The release date is July the 6th

Is CHH a Genre of Music, a Label, or a Restriction of Style?

This article is in reply to Trip Lee‘s statement and Viktory‘s reply. It was brought to my attention via Twtter & DJ Wade-O + CHICAGOrilla 

 

We have fought with a label since the conception of a gospel / Christ-centered Hip-Hop. Nobody wants to be called a name they don’t feel they are confined or restricted to. The term is Christian Hip Hop or more commonly know to the social media world as CHH. Rapzilla & DaSouth support and promote CHH artists. We are a community of artists, emcees, rappers, and producers that live a Christian lifestyle and reflect that lifestyle through our music and lyrics. But why do we hate being labeled as CHH?

Congrats to The @WadeORadio Show for A Million Podcast Downloads!

The following except is a message from DJ Wade-O;

Hey Fam,

On Wednesday Morning, we crossed a very significant milestone in the life of our ministry. As many of you know, we’ve been airing The Wade-O Radio Show for 5 years. Prior to switching our podcast host 2.5 years ago, we did not have a great way to track how many people were listening to or downloading our show. When we switched hosts, we were quickly able to determine how many people tuned in, where they were listening from and on what type of device.

On Wednesday, while we were preparing to load this week’s show, we noticed that our total downloads had just crossed 1,000,000. Yes. Our show has been downloaded 1,000,000 times in 2.5 years. Say that with me again. ONE MILLION downloads. That’s a big number and extremely humbling to consider that God would use me for such a work as this. It’s even more humbling when you consider that we were inactive for 6 of those months and didn’t release any new episodes.

When we started this show nearly 5 years ago, I never anticipated that we’d be able to reach that many people in such a short period of time. I’d like to thank each and everyone of you who has supported us via prayer, listening on the radio, downloading the show, subscribing to our podcast feed, buying our mobile app, or supporting us financially. I truly appreciate you.

You Don’t Have to be Lecrae to be Used by God (via @DaSouth.com)

 

Guess what? You don’t have to be Lecrae to be relevant, signficant, or even have an effective music ministry. And you know what else? Lecrae would agree 100%.

First things first, shoutout to Lecrae and Reach Records for all that they have done to bring glory and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ. Their ministry is very much appreciated and is a blessing to many throughout the world. Thank God for them! I mean that sincerely.

So why this write-up? Well, on November 11, 2011 an artist (who I won’t name) hit me up on Facebook with a private message. I wanted to share the message he sent because I’m sure that he isn’t the only artist who has probably had this thinking. Here it is…

Chris Treborn’s goal with Soul Anchor Music

 


Chris Treborn has is a Christian Hip-Hop artist that loves sharing the stage and the limelight, especially with his fellow brother and sister artists. He has shared the stage with some big names in Christian Hip-Hop like GRITS, CookBook of LA Symphony, and Braille Brizzy himself. When he opened up for GRITS in 2010, he shared half of his 30 minutes of stage time with Myra Hart. Christian admits “I love her voice, even though people compare her to Adele, she has something uniquely different about her.” Perhaps it is her soulful rhythm and blues style with a punch of pop that makes her stand out. Or maybe it is her vocal range – which puts her above and beyond the capabilities comparable to Adele and P!NK.
