(Nashville, Tenn.) February 23, 2016 – Nashville-based Trendency Records announces the signing of rising west coast gospel rap artist B-Fade to a label and distribution deal. Forthcoming releases will be co-branded on Trendency Records and the artist’s label, Pray Area Records. The California-based artist joins the Trendency roster which includes the rising southern California trio, Keno Camp, as well as backpack rapper Avrex.
Raised in the heart of Oakland, California, Andre Woods (a.k.a. B-Fade) wasn’t immune to the many temptations the streets presented to him. After years of using and selling drugs, as well as many of the other clichés that so profoundly affect urban communities, Andre began to realize the damage he was doing to himself and others. He immersed himself in music as a way to escape the trappings of street life. Ironically, this newfound interest in music pulled him further into that which he was trying to leave behind. Realizing that the only way out of this lifestyle was either death or life in prison, something inside of him knew he had to change. In 2002, Andre Woods found a new life in Jesus Christ. Like a caterpillar emerging from its cocoon, he was miraculously transformed from gangsta rapper into B-Fade, an acronym which stands for “Be Faithful and Dedicated Everyday.”
The upcoming album, All Things Are Possible, features some of today’s hottest rising stars from the Christian Hip-Hop world including V. Rose, Keno Camp, Brvndon P (formerly known as Black Knight) and many more, as well as veterans K-Drama, R-Swift, Heesun Lee and former Trendency artist (and godfathers of the genre), The Gospel Gangstaz. This is an album that’s chock full of big names, ministry-minded lyrics and top shelf production.
Trendency Records’ President David C. Coleman states, “B-Fade is not a man with one foot in and one foot out, so to speak. He is ‘all in.’ He is a man with mature faith, and that faith is exhibited in every facet of his music ministry and life. Trendency Records is honored to partner with a man of such noble character in taking the gospel to the streets.” B-Fade adds, “Pray Area Records believes that Trendency Records is the missing piece of the puzzle. We expect with their strong reputation for marketing coupled with Pray Area Records’ ability to create great quality music, we can achieve maximum results from here on out.”
In celebration of the new partnership, Trendency Records, Pray Area Records and B-Fade are offering a free download containing two tracks from the upcoming release, All Things Are Possible, which is slated for release on April 22, 2016. Visit NoiseTrade to preview brand new music from what is sure to become one of the hottest new releases of 2016.

(Nashville, Tenn.) August 20, 2013 – Nashville-based Trendency Records announces the signing of gospel rap group Keno Camp to a label and distribution deal. The group is slated to release its album Riot on January 14, 2014. The first single, “We Here,” will be releasing October 15th of this year.
Keno Camp is a rising young gospel group based out of Compton, California, the city that notoriously gave birth to “gangsta” rap. The die-hard believers fuse the word of God with hip-hop and use it as a vehicle for urban evangelism. The current lineup includes Mario “Escort” Herrera, Gabriel “Gabe” Taylor, and Jesus “Chuy” Herrera, and features guest emcees Terrell “T” Sales and Ronald “Moonie” Robinson throughout the album. Trendency Records President David C. Coleman states, “We’re pleased to announce the addition of Keno Camp to our roster. We first heard of the group through The Gospel Gangstaz and were impressed by what we heard.” He continues, “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 manager Bill Wilson weighs in on the recent signing by stating, “Who would have ever thought a gospel rap group from the city of Compton, California would ever have the opportunity to sign with and work with such a company but, with God, all things are possible.”
Since the inception of the group, Keno Camp has been on fire, mainly touring throughout California, Texas, Colorado and Arizona. The group has linked up on the road with Trendency Records label mates Gospel Gangstaz as well as other gospel rap heavyweights including K-Drama, R-Swift and Young Chosen. Keep an eye out for Keno Camp as they continue to spiral outward from their home location. They will continue to tour extensively with The Gospel Gangstaz in coming months.
