Compilation Series Showcases The Top Hip-Hop Artists On The Scene

Hip Hope 2009

(Nashville, Tenn.) December 9th, 2008 – Hip Hope Hits 2009, the only industry-wide compilation of hip-hop music, releases on Gotee this February 3rd and will spotlight the top artists on the scene while showcasing up-and-coming talent as well. This fifth installment of the Hip Hope compilation series will include 17 tracks on the retail album, with the digital version adding a bonus track to the mix.

Hip Hope Hits 2009 will take on a new twist under the direction of production manager Mike “DJ Maj” Allen for Fistpic Productions. He comments, "When asked to coordinate this project I considered music's rapidly changing pace and face. I also took into account that digital mediums like iTunes now allow the consumer to make their own compilations. So it made sense to cook up an album with a little more original material from both established acts like tobyMac, KJ-52, Pigeon John, Canton Jones, Speech of Arrested Development, Flynn Adam, Pettidee, as well as newcomers Braille, Shonlock of Diverse City, B.Reith and Stefan The Scientist." Hip Hope Hits 2009 was also joined by the grass roots community through additional guest appearances from Othello, Freddie Bruno, Dj Morph, Pro, Propoganda, and Dj Promote. When asked about his favorite tracks on the record Maj states, "I'm really excited about the Toby/KJ collaboration. It’s something I've been waiting to see happen for a while. Speech and Canton Jones are also great additions to the lineup. I believe everyone will be pleased."

DJ Maj has five solo albums to his credit, including 2005’s Boogiroot. Maj also hits the road often as tobyMac’s DJ.
