MINNEAPOLIS, MN. (306 Entertaiment) - An important album is about to be released in August 2004 on 306 Entertainment, a new Minneapolis Based record label, entitled, THE BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE. The album will introduce the world to hip-hop's spiritual messenger Alfonso Marcello Green P/K/A Knowledge MC.
The BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE is Knowledge MC's personal testimony as to how the love of Jesus Christ saved him from a life of destruction. Knowledge, who is considered a 'spiritual' MC, credits the word of God for turning his life from the streets and towards the heavens filling his spirit with the will of the Father and planting the seeds of THE BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE in him to (sow) share with the world through hip –hop music.
Knowledge based THE BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE on the Bible's teachings from 1 Corinthians chapter 9 Verses 19-23, where The Apostle Paul being led by the Holy Spirit of God teaches how to minister to the lost souls in an effective manner. Verse 22 - 'To the weak, became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men that I might by all means save some.'
Knowledge's goal is to not only minister to the hip-hop generation, but to confront that generation with the true unconditional love of God, while revealing the reality of Heaven and Hell. 'I wrote the album within the parameter of Biblical principal,' States Knowledge. 'Because anything that doesn't violate God's principal is still in line with his word.
Everything around us may change but God's principals always stay the same.'
The album features production by Edward 'Eddie F' Ferrell, (Donnell Jones, Mario Winans, Tyrese, Mary J Blige), Darrin Lightly (LL Cool J, Jahiem, Next, Donnell Jones ) , Herb Middleton (Mary J Blige, Faith Evans, Ann Nesby) and newcomers Senaca Cayson and Steve 'Lil Italy' La Russo. The album also features Inspirational singer Ann Nesby, and 306 label mates J.Issac and Jamecia (Nesby's daughter).
Knowledge straps on his spiritual bow and shoots his arrow straight in the heart of hip hop with his first single produced by 'Eddie F' and featuring hip-hop legend Heavy D entitled 'Bring It In.' The song delivers the raw message with a driving beat encouraging those who are lost to come Jesus as they are without feeling as if they have to change or get cleaned up to meet their Lord and Savior.

'I felt honored to work with Heavy because of who he is in hip-hop and it was on the lines of a dream come true to have him on the first single from the Book Of Knowledge because I consider him an icon in game.
