GMA Dove 2004 Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year It's Pronounced "Five Two"


Jun 26, 1975

Born Jonah Sorrentino, KJ-52 is one of the most successful Christian hip-hop artists of all time. His first album Seventh Avenue was released on Essential Records, while it may have perked the ears of Christian rap fans, it didn’t sell well. However his next album Collaborations would yield his first GMA Dove award nomination, and it wouldn’t be the last.

KJ-52 found mainstream attention with his song "Dear Slim," which was dedicated to mainstream rapper Eminem. His eclectic style has won him six out of fifteen Dove award Nominations and sold well over 300,000 records. He can often be seen at conferences as an MC as well as on major Christian Tours.
