After a five year hiatus, Hip Hop Missionary Baliva is gearing up to release his highly anticipated 3rd studio album. The London-based rapper has launched a six-week campaign – ending 31st May; to raise £5000 to fund the project, which he intends to distribute for free.
Baliva who has been active in the Christian Hip Hop scene since 2006 believes that financial constraints should not limit access to his work; and is firmly committed to distributing the gospel message to an audience that would otherwise not be able to afford to buy his music.
His latest body of work which focuses on the search for meaning in an increasingly disconnected World, is a timely and potent message for all. Of the album Baliva remarks, “Our culture is based on constantly looking for validation from people, achievements and so on. But true significance can only be found in the Love of God.”
Baliva aims to raise £5000 by appealing to those who love his music and mission to help finance the project; which will enable him to give the album away for free upon release.
As a thank you to those who contribute, Baliva has arranged a series of giveaways which include, advance copies of the album, signed CDs, t-shirts and an invitation to a pre launch listening party. The album will have a Soul Hip Hop vibe with production by Grammy-nominated producer Tony Stone.
