In the January 2008 CCM Reader’s Choice issue, KJ-52 was voted by his dedicated fans as the Favorite Hip-Hop Artist for the third year in a row. Printed in the magazine, KJ-52 thanked his fans saying, “Thank you so much. It’s exciting to know that what you’re doing is connecting with people on many different levels. I consider it an honor to just be nominated for this award, much less to actually win it; it’s amazing where God can take someone. I remember reading CCM when I was just a teenage baby Christian, and to now be able to be in it is an honor and a privilege.”
Recently, KJ-52 was honored with two Dove Nominations for the 39th Annual Dove Awards, which will be held April 23rd in Nashville, TN. KJ-52 was named nominee for Rap/Hip Hop album of the year for “The Yearbook” in addition to Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the year for “Wake Up.”
