PLEASE READ IN FULL if you Support Our Music & Ministry
Peoples! We need your help. The SOTL crew have been putting in MAD WORK to get music to you. You say you want it... we been giving it!
We are INDEPENDANT artists and RELY completely on YOUR SUPPORT.
-That Means we are Humble People- Wives, Husbands, Parents, with Jobs and Responsibilities - Just like Yourself. It is with great honor that we have been given a 'platform' to create music & share it other people. It is with great Joy that our Hiphop has reached so many people and shared the Gospel in a relevant, impactful way in our music culture!
-That means that we have NO budget to complete these very expensive albums and rely on YOU to buy/financially support what we put out SO WE CAN PUT OUT MORE. Everything we make on these albums goes right back into making more. Studio Equipment is not free - Time Spent on mixing, mastering, perfecting the Songs is not Free - Everything has a Cost Attached to it. Your Financial Support makes sure that we can CONTINUE to do what we do. It simple Mathematics, and we Thank you for your Support!
-That means we have NO promotional funding and rely on YOU to promote what we are doing. We have been told that with no promotion from a 'major label' we will never get this music out to the masses. But a short look at human history will say that is wrong. EVERY REVOLUTION STARTED on 'THE STREETS'. Jesus Christ was not signed to a major label. In fact the 'major' players of His time tried to shut his 'album' down BUT the word of mouth promotion he received from his 'fanbase' caused His ministry to go worldwide to this day! YOU are our Promotional team and we appreciate that!
You are our BEST Bet!
If you have NOT bought the newest releases from the SOTL crew, please take a listen and do so if you like what you hear.
If you HAVE purchased the releases... PLEASE share the music and availability info with others in your circle of friends & fam.
We LOVE you guys and make Rap for YOU!
What we need from You, honestly, is to BUY the music we create and SHARE it with others.
And KNOW that you are appreciated for being our support and Promotional Team.
We wouldn't have it any other way! Locust is US!
Our goal is always to make music that encourages people toward Godly-Living and your financial & promo support goes a LONG way to insure that we can keep doing so.
Thank you for your Support!

And out of right field!--- Samuel Oxymoron has just released an epic EP project!!!
the Middle-Aged Has-Been Rapper EP
The album was concepted by a fanciful trip back to Sam's upbringing in Hiphop as he reminisced on his good ol' days of late 90's rap music. All production features this heyday of urban mainstream, chopped, cut-up & mixed by Beat Somebody, in an elaborate audible display of completely entertaining Hiphop music!
Although the beats are not 'new' the re-versioned concepts are fresh and invigorating! Sam Ox's lyrical prowess & Beat Somebody's quirky re-envisioning layered over these classics makes for a completely heavy-hitting final product. Oxymoron definately soothes us with a thurough trip from fun (Buf-zilla), to emotional (Start to Finish), to revealing (Fight for You), to soothing (Pen Play) and insightful (Ready Writer). His counterpart on the project, Beat Somebody, provides a definitive twist on some well known classics (Digable Planets, Tribe Called Quest, Biggie Smalls, ect) that seems to perfectly blend new audio concepts into grooved-ridden hits, seating us right in the middle of before & next, then & now, yesterday & today.
Features: Hosea Noiz, Man o' War, ManCHILD, Jeremiah Dirt, Loose Enda, M AKA Muffin, Sojourn, Foreknown and more!
the album is friggidy-FRESH!
The Album is FREE! Don't SLEEP ON IT!
