KJ-52 GOES BACK TO SCHOOL WITH RELEASE OF “THE YEARBOOK” ON APRIL 10TH
13 February 2007

With the latest installment from two-time Dove Award-winning rapper KJ-52, The Yearbook treats listeners to a musical flashback of school days and life lessons learned this coming April 10th.

KJ-52’s The Yearbook, serves up topics with both seriousness and some just plain fun. Songs include “Fanmail” based on letters KJ-52 has received about kids cutting themselves, struggling with sexuality, divorce, and alcohol and what to do when faith doesn’t make sense. “Daddy’s girl” deals with the self-esteem issues girls deal with growing up. The song “You Hang Up First” tells the common story of young love and breaking up. “It Ain’t Easy Being Tweezy” pokes fun at the KJ-52 being a white rapper and sometimes being mistaken for a band instead of solo act.

“When I look back on my yearbook (then) I see mullets, big hair and a whole lot of bad fashion,” says KJ-52. “When I look at my yearbook now (my album) I see a collection of songs that reflect what God has done in my life in the last year... I think I like this one better.”

This album, which will include a bonus disc of music videos and behind-the-scene footage, proves to be a first for KJ-52 as he produced all but two of the songs on the album. The other two songs were produced by industry veteran Aaron Sprinkle (Kutless, Eisley, Jeremy Camp). There are also guest appearances by the Disciple (INO) frontman Kevin Young on the song “You’ll Never Take Me Down,” as well as Emery’s (T&N) frontman Toby Morell on the first radio single “Wake Up.”.

In support of the album release, a virtual high school, www.fivetweezyhigh.com, will be launched early March.

Fans will be able to participate by posting yearbook photos, listening to weekly podcasts, and sharing personal stories.

KJ-52, who has shared the stage with Kutless, Disciple, and Falling Up, will tour this spring and summer, including all the major music festivals, Women of Faith’s national conference, six Acquire The Fire events, and 14 cities on this fall’s Revolve Tour. He also recently had the honor of being invited by the government of Morocco to share his music with over 50,000 at the Friendship Fest. With seven albums to his credit, KJ has amassed over 500,000 records sold to date. He has heralded the title of favorite “Hip Hop Artist” in the CCM Magazine Reader’s Choice Awards twice and has numerous Dove Awards to his credit.
