Walking what they talk, a collective of Christian MCs and producers will be using profits from their upcoming compilation album to raise funds for an African school.

The project, titled King Kulture, will contain never-before heard tracks from artists like Lecrae, theBREAX, Braille, Sho Baraka, and GRITS. It was organized by the popular gospel rap hub Rapzilla.com and will benefit Ecole de la Borne, a school started by the site founder’s missionary grandparents.

“The literacy rate in the Congo is 66% versus 99% in the United States,” Rapzilla co-owner and editor-in-chief Chad Horton said. “We’re doing a project that is going to benefit people there who haven’t been afforded the same opportunities that we have.”

King Kulture will hit iTunes on January 31 and is currently available for pre-order.
