Pyrexx tells 116 to eat His $@&#


While we have people making their way to Chh, think of Chance the rapper or Kanye West as the latest person, we also have some leaving. Its been happening for the last 10 years and the latest we have Pyrexx.

Joseph Mcsweeney aka PyRexx, a Houston-based Christian rapper an Ex-Drug Dealer who had served six-and-a-half years behind bars before he turned his life around, made it very clear on his Instagram story. Someone asked him if he`s still doing Christian Hiphop and the way he replied a lot of people were surprised. Some of the songs he put out recently wasn`t Chh oriented. Its a huge surprise especially the tone he put on his Instagram. This man was being covered on most websites and media. Before he got to Chh, he was in a rap group called ABN with Trae Tha Truth.

Some people think they dont get enough support, not being real e.t.c. What do you think would make someone leave Chh besides not making it big in Christian Hiphop?

Kanye West Dropping Gospel Album “Jesus Is King” With Tracklist & Release Date


It looks like Kanye may be releasing another album entirely, almost a year to the day after Yandhi was originally supposed to drop. People think he’s trying to win Christian fans over or for the money e.t.c. To be honest, Christianity is popular right now. Chance the Rapper did “The Bid Day” album that had some christian songs. He sounds very genuine when you listen to his interviews, his Faith is at the forefront whatever the subject he’s talking about. Now, what has kept West in the news this year is his Sunday Services, livestreamed ad hoc church worship services where he’s covered classic songs and converts his own hits into gospel music, choir and all. Based on a tweet from Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian, it appears he is going to keep rolling with that theme.


Kanye West Album “Jesus Is King”

Kardashian tweeted what looks to be a tracklist and release date for a new Kanye album called “Jesus Is King” written by hand. A release date of 9/27 is listed. Song titles include “Baptized,” “Sweet Jesus,” “God Is,” and “Selah,” Also is “Water,” the new song Kanye debuted at Coachella Sunday Service.

Reach Records Accused Again!


Recently Aha Gazelle and 1kphew release their music video “x10” which looks familiar with BrvndonP and Mission “Barely Finished”.

Watch the intros of both songs::

BrvndonPMission “Barely Finished” came out two years prior “x10”.

When people are bigger, some will believe them because they have the reach no pun intended. Maybe someone within the Reach camp not necessarily 1kphew or Aha Gazelle, the music director could have stolen the idea. It wouldn’t carry much weight if they hadn’t been accused prior similar situations. J. Monty accused Tedashii of taking a line, Derek Minor openly said they stole his idea “III part series”. If Derek Minor can say that and he was once signed to Reach, then it certainly there’s validity to it. J.Monty has been to those circles before and had the same sentiments. Mission just wants some acknowledgements to it. It’s the third time happening now. What could be the reason to Reach records doing this?

CZAR Josh And Rockstar JT Showcase Their Black Pride In New Single


Musically, CZAR Josh has been known for his pro-black and conscience topics and his newest single ‘Mansa Musa’ is no different. The single, featuring Rockstar Jt and produced by Killawatts, is an aggressive and emotionally charged track that finds both artists displaying pride in their heritage.  


Josh aims to make listeners aware that artists similar to him can showcase pride in their skin color and heritage while still making dope music and being a Christian. CZAR Josh states, 


“There are groups of fans in our space that always want to box Black artists in and restrict them from showing any type of joy and pride in their skin color. Those restrictions extend to being able to speak on topics such as social justice and inequality. We’re always told to stick to the Gospel or just make music. Mansa Musa is us pushing back on those sentiments and being comfortable in who God made us.” 


‘Mansa Musa’ is Josh’s first single since ‘IDWCMH’ released in January of 2019. Josh is currently working on a new project that is slated to release at the end of 2019.
