adamariz 'Need 2 Hold On 2 The Truth'

adamariz features several prominent guest artists on NEED 2 HOLD ON 2 THE TRUTH

“Because of the truth that abides in us and will be with us forever: Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father’s Son, in truth and love.” [2 John 1: 2-3]

Freedom is found rooted in truth. Christ has freely offered freedom from our bondage and the ability to stand firm in His promise. Therefore, it is the Word, he who has been from the beginning, that embodies the ultimate truth. Hearing without seeing, and yet still believing, we need to hold on to the truth, no matter the cost.

For adamariz, using music to inspire others goes beyond talents and is instead a calling placed on her life. With her newest project, NEED 2 HOLD ON 2 THE TRUTH, adamariz brings the message of the gospel while collaborating with some of the biggest names in the Christian rap scene. The five-track EP features Marty (Social Club Misfits), 1K Phew, Parris Chariz, 350, and Battz and is a melodic story of transparency and growth.

NEED 2 HOLD ON 2 THE TRUTH is just about that, the need to hold on,” states adamariz. The project is a personal realization that God provides all that is needed. It is the truth that is found in the Word. “I must hold on to the truth through whatever the circumstance may be.”

Produced by v3rsatil3 with engineering by Jericko, NEED 2 HOLD ON 2 THE TRUTH is available now across digital streaming platforms.

On the heels of the release of a slew of singles in 2022, DJ LostNFound has dropped his sophomore album CAESURA ll.

DJ LostNFound is curating this album to highlight 50 Christian artists inside CHH and within mainstream Hip Hop. His goal is to call attention to artists who, in his opinion, deserve a larger platform. He also hopes to continue the push for more unity in our genre. While an album probably doesn’t achieve this. The hope is it’ll continue the much needed discussion.

Fans can hear some from their favorite artists such as S.O., A.I. The Anomaly, Aaron Cole, 350, Datin, Big Breeze, Eris Ford, Battz, Reconcile, and more! CAESURA ll released worldwide September 2nd 2022.

Listen below and let us know your favorite songs and features!

Check out the original CAESURA here.

Inspired by his journey of self-development, Sammie King teams up with 350 on his single Sobriety.

Sammie chose to remove himself from situations that were not good for his mental health. One of the unhealthiest things you can do is allow negative energy to cause you to act outside of character. We need to avoid the things that we are trying to move forward from.

Trutha debuts his newest single, Out The Struggle featuring 350 & produced by YJO.

We cannot allow our circumstances to define us. There’s no excusing us from prospering in life. God’s blessings help to build the Kingdom. 350 brings the sauce on the hook, giving the single an even bigger feeling.

O U T S D R S is a slight nod to WCW’s “Outsiders”. The same way Nash and Hall took over is the same way we plan to take over the industry and demand our blessings.

Features: Raw-B, Xay Hill, 350

This is the first collaboration between Alcott and Futuristic. On this track, the two emcees detail the things they want to accomplish before they die. The song is produced by Jesse Calentine. The hook is provided by rising CHH star, 350.

Once Wckd continues their recent run of spring singles with “What Are The Chances”. The song is contemplative and weighs the odds of God’s purposes being fulfilled in the artists’ lives.

Features: 350

Nostalgic is a track referencing how we overcame the ways that we once lived. A reference to old-school pop culture in the process.

Features: 350, Chris Lake
