Hip Hop artist, Sho Baraka has announced that he is parting with his record label, Reach Record. He released a statement on the Reach Records and the statement can be read below.

Around this time, one year ago, I released my second album Lions and Liars under Reach Records. Four years ago, I officially became an artist on the label, although my friendship with all the artists and staff predates that time. Today, I bring news that is exciting, yet surprising and full of uncertainty.

I will no longer be an artist on the Reach Records label. It’s been a wonderful four years doing business with the Reach organization, and it’s also been a pleasure to communicate the center of our joy via Hip Hop.  Through the years I have established friendships that will last a lifetime, both with Reach Records artists and staff.

I would like to extend my utmost gratitude to all who support my music and the other artists at Reach. I trust that the LORD will establish my plans as I commit my work to him.

It would be imprudent of me to think that this post would not bring speculation as well as gossip. I would encourage the reader to not pull out assumptions or exaggerations. That being said, here are a couple of things I would like to communicate:

  • I will still be an artist with Reach Booking (www.reachbooking.com) and travel on certain group dates w/ other Reach artist thru 2011.
  • I will continue to do concert dates and events thru 2011.
  • I will be featured on Reach projects that will be released in 2011.
  • If you have any desire to stay afloat with some of my dealings go to www.thisishigh.com.


The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

Grace and Peace,

Amisho Baraka L.
