Bushwick Bill shocked and excited a packed Urban Gospel Alliance (UGA) Industry Mixer crowd with his testimony and first ever Holy Hip Hop performance. Bushwick Bill, best known for his affiliation with the 90’s secular hip-hop group Geto Boys and their hit song “My Mind’s Playing Tricks on Me”, attended the October 9th UGA Artist & Industry Mixer along with many of Houston’s urban gospel elite.
Brought to the mixer by Much Luvv Records CEO Tre9, Bushwick Bill graced the stage following an urban artist showcase hosted by DC the Gospel Comedian. After informing attendees that he had given his life to Christ and no longer performed or recorded secular hip-hop, he ministered one song for the awe-struck audience. He rounded out his debut performance by playing a few tracks from his upcoming Holy Hip Hop project.
“It was awesome to hear his testimony and to know that he can affect many lives in the secular community because he is so well known,” stated UGA Houston Chapter Rep Charrise Barron. “It’s an exceptional start for his holy hip hop career - and it made our event extra special.”
Sponsored by More Excellent Media Group and Drake Marketing, the mixer also featured DJ Primo and performances by Chad Brawley & AYC, Baby Ben & Kamoflauge of Crossroad Records, and Jermaine Love & Unity. Urban gospel industry personnel attending the event included D. Ware of Upper Room Records, Sketch the Journalist, UGA Georgia Chapter Director and Manifestations, LLC. CEO Ursula Frederick-Brown, SoulMuzick Recordings executive Monetana, and recording artist Loretta Williams Gurnell.
This was the first event since Barron took over as Chapter Rep and rebuilt Houston’s chapter. “I’m really thankful to God - the turnout was wonderful, the audience participation was excellent, and the enthusiasm and fellowship was awesome,” said Barron. “We’ve set the Houston chapter on a course for great success and built momentum for many more outstanding events.”
