Hip Hop artist Steven Malcolm took home three Kingdom Choice Awards this past Saturday, Sept. 28. His latest LP, The Second City, was named "Hip Hop Album of the Year," while his song "Fuego" earned "Video of the Year" and "Hip Hop Single of the Year" honors.
Now in its tenth year, the Kingdom Choice Awards is the exclusive awards show for independent Christian Hip Hop and Urban Gospel artists. The 2019 ceremony was held at the Kumble Theater on the campus of Long Island University, located in downtown Brooklyn, N.Y. Malcolm closed out this year's show with a high-energy performance of "Fuego" and his current Top 10 Hot AC single, "Even Louder (feat. Natalie Grant)."
Both songs are from his sophomore set, The Second City, released at the beginning of 2019 on 4 Against 5, a division of Curb | Word Entertainment. Dedicated to his father, who immigrated to the U.S. from Montego Bay, Jamaica (nicknamed "The Second City"), the album is a vulnerable look into Malcolm's own journey to self-discovery. When Malcolm was only 10, his father was deported back to Jamaica by U.S. authorities, where he later passed away, leaving Malcolm fatherless. Yet, it was through this heartbreaking experience that he found his true identity and the inspiration for the music he's making today.
This fall Malcolm will share new music from The Second City on select dates of the Family Ties Tour, also featuring nobigdyl., Canon and Kurtis Hoppie.
