Trendency Records, home of Christian hip-hop pioneers the Gospel Gangstaz, have signed another rap group hailing from the west coast, Keno Camp.
“We’re pleased to announce the addition of Keno Camp to our roster,” said Trendency’s President David C. Coleman. “We first heard of the group through the Gospel Gangstaz and were impressed by what we heard. We’re looking forward to engaging the developmental process and helping the group expand their fan base. We believe they have what it takes to become a major force in gospel rap.”
Keno Camp, straight out of Compton, Calif., is made up of rappers Mario “Escort” Herrera, Gabriel “Gabe” Taylor and Jesus “Chuy” Herrera. The trio will release its latest studio album, Riot, in early 2014. The project will feature Terrell “T” Sales, former co-founder of Keno Camp, and Ronald “Moonie” Robinson.
“We Here,” the first single off of Riot, will drop on October 15.
“Who would have ever thought a gospel rap group from the city of Compton, Calif. would ever have the opportunity to sign with and work with such a company, but with God all things are possible,” said Keno Camp manager Bill Wilson.
Keno Camp will perform at the 2013 Kingdom Choice Awards pre-show party in N.Y. on Friday, Sept. 27 hosted by Richie Righteous.
