You'll want to not only be here on September 11th, but bring your whole quad with you!
Doors open at 5:00 pm and the event ends at 7:00 pm.
WHAT ABOUT ROCK THE BLOCK?
We've looked forward to RTB for the last 7 years, now, but we are no longer starting our semester with this amazing event.
Why? Because we want to bring you MORE!
Nine times more!
WHO IS STEVEN MALCOLM?
Steven Malcolm makes faith-driven hip-hop that's as unique as his multi-cultural background. It's a sound rooted in rap's rhythmic delivery, pop's modern melodies, and God's word, glued together by an artist whose music has earned five Dove Award nominations and more than 70 million streams.
Malcolm's messages of hope and redemption come from his own experience. Raised in western Michigan and coastal Florida, he grew up in search of stability. His father, a native Jamaican who had emigrated from Montego Bay, was deported back to the Caribbean when Steven was just 9 years old, and later passed away before the two could reunite. Steven's mother struggled as a single parent and eventually left town, leaving her son to fend for himself as a young college student. His life lacked a clear direction until he accepted a friend's invitation to attend a local church service that incorporated hip-hop, dance, and worship.
That church — the Edge Urban Fellowship — changed Steven's life. It gave him a community, as well as a place to make purpose-driven music. Between performances with the church's worship team, he finished work on his independent debut album, Monster's Ink, which became an underground success. Before long, Steven's reputation had extended far beyond the Midwest and attracted attention from major labels. He signed with Word Entertainment, a division of Curb Records, becoming the first rapper on a roster filled with the musical heavyweights of the faith-based world.
