HOUSTON, TX – Hip hop missionary Bobby “Tre9” Herring has been on a break from recording and releasing his own rap music. But that doesn’t mean he’s lost touch with the tool he so frequently employs to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Now, five years after his last release, Tre9 returns to the mic to unleash a War Cry. The new album carries a modern trap vibe with lyrics that represent the artist’s unquenchable desire to introduce his Savior to the streets he holds so dear.
“As I’ve continued to evangelize and disciple people from the same type of inner-city communities I came out of I’ve kept my eyes and ears on the sounds and styles that have captivated our shared target audience,” Herring said. “This project stretched me as an artist, but was fun to create and one I’m praying will produce much fruit.”
War Cry features several guests who have spiritually and musically benefitted from Tre9’s mentorship including Pyrexx and Austin Lanier. Others lending their voices to the project include Big Rob Clay, Rob Bing, and a surprise feature from KB who helps bridge the gap on the “Generations Remix” of “Pull Up On Ya Block.”
The album will be released on 9/22/18 through all digital music providers via Much Luvv Records. Fans of “chopped and screwed” music can also look for a version of War Cry from former Swishahouse affiliate DJ E.N.T. featuring that classic format most often associated with the City of Houston Tre9 forever represents.
