The All-Star Compilation Album Gives Back to a School in Africa

Christian hip hop is making a difference for African students in the Congo this winter. Premier music web site Rapzilla.com in conjunction with Syntax Distribution releases the compilation album King Kulture on January 31st. Proceeds from the album benefit Ecole de la Borne, a school in the Congo started by Christian missionaries.

The idea came about when Rapzilla founder Philip Rood and his team were looking for ways to expand the web site’s charitable reach. “We wanted to give proceeds from a project to some kind of charity in Africa,” Rood says. “It hit me that my grandparents are missionaries in the Congo. We can do something with them.”

Rood’s grandfather, Jacques Vernaud, was born in the jungles of Africa and started preaching in the 1950s. He married a medical missionary nurse, and their ministry work thrived through church planting. In 1981, the seeds for the school were planted when the Vernauds started ministry targeting the French-speaking people of the Congo.

Vernaud became known as a church planter and a significant figure in the evangelical history of the Congo. But it didn’t stop there. By 1989, he and his wife established the Christian Congolese kindergarten Ecole de la Borne in Kinshasa, Congo. It expanded to an elementary school five years later. Today, Ecole de la Borne also has a high school with nearly 400 students in total where Children receiving a Bible-based.

“The literacy rate in the Congo is 66% versus 99% in the United States,” says Rapzilla co-owner and editor-in-chief Chad Horton. “We're doing a project that is going to benefit people in the Congo who haven't been afforded the same opportunities that we have.”

Rood adds, “We wanted to get involved, so we decided to help out the school with scholarships. However, once I visited the school in person, I realized they need a lot more than scholarships. We are helping in that area, but they also need building improvements, more classrooms, and basic supplies.”

That help came in the form of an all-star compilation album. King Kulture is a two-year project in the making. It features never before heard tracks from Lecrae, KJ-52, GRITS, Braille and more.

“You're going to get an album that's amazing with all the artists you love and all these songs you can't get anywhere else,” Rood says. “It's a must-have for any Christian hip hop fan, but also what you're putting into is helping others.”

“This is something that hasn't been done in Christian hip hop before, everyone coming together for a cause,” Horton says.

Syntax Distribution will be putting its energy behind King Kulture. CEO Tim Trudeau is excited to work with his longtime friends on this cause oriented project and had this to say:

“For most of my involvement, Christian hip hop has poked its head into anywhere and everywhere, waving its hands just trying to get noticed. Now that it’s gained some decent traction and developed respect, it has a responsibility to steward this platform,” Trudeau says. “To me, this is exactly what King Kulture is doing. It’s synergizing any notoriety that Rapzilla has, any brand power the artists on this project may have, any industry clout that Syntax may have developed and putting it all together to raise money for something bigger than all of us.”

Vernaud died in the fall of 2011, but the legacy of La Borne lives on. Through the efforts of Syntax Distribution and Rapzilla, listeners can help his mission to evangelize Africa and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

It's safe to say Toronto has become somewhat of a hotbed for hip-hop. From Drake to The Weeknd – Marco Polo to Saukrates – and more, the T Dot has been spitting out a variety of talent over the years. And the latest to emerge is 4th Pyramid, who will release his official debut solo album The Pyramid Scheme on March 13th via Silk Ivory/Lyrics To Go/Universal Music.

Despite The Pyramid Scheme serving as Pyramid's official debut, the rapper/producer/engineer has cut his teeth behind the scenes for some time now, collaborating with a list of artists that includes names and labels such as Wu-Tang Clan, Definitive Jux, MF Doom, Pete Rock, and even the Black Eyed Peas. He's also one half of the DJ/production team The Sheen Bros, along with Cosmo Baker, and the duo released their 2011 EP through Scion's A/V label. Pyramid's new album, The Pyramid Scheme, will include features and production from the likes of Greg Nice, Marco Polo, Saukrates, Rich Kidd, and more, and to kick things off, Pyramid is excited to release the album's debut single and video, "Webslinger." The song, a lyrical assault produced by Simahlak, is backed with a video directed by Adrian Parks and Pyramid, himself, with co-direction and set design by Johnny Nghiem, and the clip contains some dangerously appropriate visuals, centered around a tarantula crawling loose across a woman's naked, heavily tattooed body. "I wanted to do something a little more intriguing than the average video so I thought, 'why not?'" explains Pyramid. "And what better canvas than the female body?"
