Houston, TX – Hip hop legend and former Geto Boy Bushwick Bill’s debut Christian rap album, Testimony of Redemption, officially drops from Much Luvv Records/G-S.P.O.T. Productionz on Tuesday, January 26 through Central South/Infinity Distribution.
A renewed adaptation of the video for the self-titled lead single will also be released to the Internet and various media outlets on Monday, January 18. Version 1.0 of the “Testimony of Redemption” video leaked in November and is estimated to have garnered over 300,000 views.
“We were thrilled with overwhelmingly positive response the first version of the video received,” George Uscanga, owner of G-S.P.O.T. Productionz, said. “This is a great project that is going to touch many lives.”
G-S.P.O.T. stands for God’s Special Purpose of Talent. Ringtones and digital downloads from the album can be secured at iTunes, DaSouth.com, and TheBus-Shop.com.
Testimony of Redemption, Bushwick Bill’s sixth foray into solo recording, is his first attempt at gospel rap, featuring honorable lyrics on tracks like “Praise Of A Good Woman,” “Renewed Mind” and perhaps the most evangelistic, “God’s Side Is Da Best Side.” Still, Bill’s brush with Christianity isn’t a new leaf — before he made it big with the Geto Boys, he was a theology student with the ministry in mind.
“I can tell you that Bill’s lyrics tightly align with Scripture,” Much Luvv Records CEO Bobby “Tre9” Herring said. “It excites me because when people listen to this album, they’ll definitely be hearing the Word of God.”
Copies of the “Testimony of Redemption” video and album can be made available for review to media outlets. Album cover artwork is attached.
