Controversial rapper Nuwine headlines Easter Christian hip hop concert in Houston
Nuwine (aka Wine-O) will headline an Easter concert at First Outreach Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday, April 24 from 4pm to 7pm.
In the late-90's Nuwine was one of Houston's most visible Christian rappers with a "Ghetto Mission" TV show, frequent concert and evangelism appearances, and later a record deal with Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Records.
But over the last few years his music has gone in a more... shall we say... "adult" direction.
What he says and performs on stage Sunday will certainly be interesting.
Other artists on the bill include Bizzle, Still Trill Christians, S.O.M., 007 (5th Ward Boyz), Lil Raskull, and Gifted da Flamethrowa.
The event is being organized by Christian rapper Von Won who recently enlisted Nuwine to guest feature on his "One City Under God" record.
And now for some classic Nuwine: "One Million Souls."
