GB x Legacy "No Problem"

GB x Legacy | “No Problem”

The latest offering from TLS (The Listening Session), GB & Legacy warns about the inherent dangers of a paper-chasing mindset. When the relentless pursuit of material wealth becomes the focal point, the journey to obtain it becomes treacherous, while the acquisition of it leaves a person unfulfilled.

Legacy, "In The Abyss"

Legacy drops his first record of 2023, In The Abyss

In The Abyss serves as the lead single for Legacy’s forthcoming album ‘SSWT’. The song takes an in-depth look at the inner workings of a troubled soul, in distress. Along with the song’s catchiness, it serves as a reminder to always look to the cross, for salvation.

Legacy is working on a new project but asks listeners to Hold This For Now.

The two-track single pack sets the tone for Legacy’s forthcoming album. Hold This For Now combines a perfect blend between high-quality sonic execution and penmanship. As well as the unapologetic stance of faith he aims to convey with his new album.

Included tracks

What’s Gwanin ft. Aable

Hope Dealer with Scribe Music and Dru Bex

 

One of Christian Rap’s artists on the rise, Nu Tone is taking West Coast hip hop and infusing it with the hope found in the Gospel.

With a distinct voice and elite pen, it is not hard to discover why Nu Tone has jumped on the radars of influential platforms such as Critique Friday’s (Rapzilla) and Billboard Hip Hop. He has remained one of the most consistent and hardest working artists in the Christian Rap space for several years now. His new project carries on that tradition by showcasing not only his incredible talent but a multitude of other artists as well.

Heavenly Legacy releases across digital music retailers on July 8, 2022 (which also happens to be Nu Tone’s birthday) via Nu Tone’s own “His Throne Records” imprint.

The album includes 15 tracks, each having its own unique and hand-picked featured artist. The list includes Gabby Callwood, Muted Mike, Legacy, Zou, A. Ruiz, V. Rose, Jxhn Pvul, and Nu Tone’s wife Rebekah Renatus, among others. The project features production from Liam Bushey (Xay Hill, Big Breeze, Scootie Wop) and 100graham (Coop, Henrik) with engineering by Jxhn Pvul.

Highlights from the album include the records “His Throne”, “Wicked Ways”, “Angel City”, “Enough”, and “Kneel”. Heavenly Legacy is the sonic experience that Christian Rap has been waiting for. Physical copies of the album are also available on CD.
