Summer Semester show #7 & Brand New Site!

August 14th, 2007

Well here it is, after working on it for a few weeks, I finally got it all finished. Hopefully you guys like the new design!
Aside from the new site design, I have last weeks show for ya, so be sure to check it out. On this show, Will did some DJing at the end, with a book FULL of old skool Holy Hip Hop, we are talking stuff from 1988 to 2002. This collection is probably one of the largest Holy Hip Hop collections in the world, no joke! It has been collected by the original Dj of the show (The Humble Servant) for years, since the 80s. His collection would have been even larger had half of it not gotten stolen late last year.
I will be playing old skool tracks here and there for all you cats out there who want to know the roots of Holy Hip Hop!

Note: UPDATE YOUR PODCASTS! – if you are subscribed to the podcast, end that subscription and subscribe to the new one (link at the top of the page) the old one will no longer be active.

116 Clique – 13 Letters

August 12th, 2007

Remember those albums that you could listen straight through without skipping the tracks?
That was dope right? Also a thing of the past, right?
Nah think again. I just received in the mail today the brand new album, 13 Letters, done by the 116 Clique, and it has been on repeat since I got it. I’m not joking, and I haven’t even had to skip the track once.

116 Clique – 13 Letters, More info / Buy Here!

116 Clique features artists from Reach Records, people like, Lecrae, Trip Lee, Shai Linne, Sho Baraka, 1-Lyfe and some others. A lot of these guys you’ve heard solo stuff on the show, and probably already know their names.
This album features brand new tracks from each of these guys, and I think I could safely say these tracks are some of their individual bests.

Here is a sample mp3, one of my personal favorites by Sho Baraka, called “This is my Heart” a track inspired by 2nd Corinthians.

Corey Red – Video

August 12th, 2007

Thats right, heres an update for ya, like I promised I’d try to do more of.
Today we got a clip from Corey Red that I found on Youtube last night, It cuts short at the end, but what you do hear from it is just awesome. I will probably be playing this clip over the air this coming Saturday.

For those of you who use Youtube, and have an account, be sure to add me, I update my favorites all the time with holy hip hop and breaking videos. link to my account

Mark Arthur

August 11th, 2007

Alright so a few days ago I was just checkin out youtube, you know, typing in the names of the different artists we play on the show, and so I type in r-swift, a regularly played artist on the show, and also, the first Gospel, or “Holy Hip Hop” artist I really even liked, and I find this plug for a cat named Mark Arthur. As far as I know he is just barley on the comeup, so most likely you’ll have heard it here first. Now you can go out and tell your friends about this new cat who is just SOLID hip hop for the Lord.

Mark Arthur live with R-SwiftI just got his latest album “Handycapped”
and couldn’t be more happy with it, with featured artists like, R-Swift, and James Maccabbee, you really cant go wrong, as if he needed them though — just go copp this album and listen for yourself.

you can get his myspace here

Also don’t forget that we will be on live tomorrow at 8 to 10pm (PST) click that webcast link on this site to listen in live during those times.

Just Smile

If you are a regular listener of the show, I think you’ll recognize this track.

Farewell to “The Lord’s Bomb Servant”

August 11th, 2007

I didn’t get it recorded!
I’m truly sorry about that, especially since it was our man “the lord’s bomb servant” or “the reformer” or just plain Rory’s last show!

He is moving on to be a pastor of a church in San Diego, props to Rory for this huge achievement, and I’m sure he will touch a lot of people. He plans to play Holy hip hop before and after each service! I know if I lived in SD, that would be my one and only church right there haha.

So do it big out there Rory, much love from your homie Pinecone, and I’m sure from all the listeners out there too.

Thankfully Rory got his man Ben to take his place in the studio, hes got a fresh delivery on the mic, and will be gracing it each week, so keep downloading those podcasts, and keep tuning in, after some 12-odd years, this things just getting started!

Theres still some stickers left so keep those requests coming from the link on the right “free stickers”


Dont look back

August 10th, 2007

Something that has just been popping out at me all the time are these verses and songs about the end times, weather or not that is fitting for today’s day and age, I couldn’t tell ya, I’m not about to go “reading signs” and making predictions… but it was put on my heart to write about this passage I came across the other day.

Luke 17:30-33 (as found in the New Living Translation)
Jesus is speaking here
“Yes it will be business as usual’ right up to the hour when the Son of Man [Jesus] returns. On that day a person outside the house must not go into the house to pack. A person in the field must not return to town. Remember what happened to Lot’s wife! Whoever clings to this life shall lose it, and whoever looses this life will save it.”

Now this is how the passage speaks to me, and I guess its just one way to interpret it, so if you have a different interpretation I encourage you to comment.

For me, what I see here is Jesus telling us to be ready at all times, and to not have such a big need for the things in our everyday life. This passage shows us that there will be a short amount of time for us to either hesitate and turn back, or to fully be ready and go to heaven with Christ. Really think about it, do you think you would hesitate to go back and see your family if you were say driving on the freeway, or at school, or work? Would you try to go to a church? Or anywhere else that you feel most comfortable… home?
This verse has really put me in my place, because often times I find myself clinging to certain things in the world that make me feel most comfortable. This passage is an inspiration to me to be comfortable wherever I am, knowing that if it were my time to go I should be ready to leave without hesitation. There is more than just this life and just this world, so be excited to see the place in heaven that GOD has prepared for us. Think of all the bad here on earth — now think of all the good and beautiful things, times that good by about 1000, subtract all the bad, and you got what is prepared for you in heaven.

peace and God bless

Kaleb Starr – Na Na

August 9th, 2007

Hey everyone, I’ve decided that it’s time we do a little bit more with this ministry, by keeping this website up to date with album, and track reviews, along with bible verses and even thoughts on different passages.
I am going to do my best to update at least twice a week.

So to start this new idea off on the right foot, I’d like to talk about an album I just received in the mail today.

Kaleb Starr – No Matter What

I put this in my cd player while I was working on a few different things, and every track just seemed to jump out at me in a different way, the whole album is great. Its so new that I still haven’t been able to really take the whole album in, but I find myself playing a certain track over and over again. Track 4, “Na Na”. It’s a track on the subject of The Rapture (or the second coming, and last judgment, or to non-Christians, “the end of the world”). The subject is touchy to many, some don’t even want to hear about it, and skip revelation (the book in the bible that describes it in detail) completely! Well it’s not something to miss, and not something to skip, it’s also not something to fear, but something to actually look forward to as Kaleb Starr illustrates in this amazing track.
Instead of taking the path of straight scaring you to faith, as some people do, he empowers you to faith, but doesn’t shy around the fact that the rapture is the end and your either goin to heaven of hell in that time with lyrics like:

/ Why you livin for a tomorrow that might not exist /
/ You think that lifes hell black? You gun wish for your worst times back /

But I’ll stop talkin now, just download the track and listen for yourself, listen for the power you got over the devil and hell when you got Christ on your side.
