Biography

Souljahz was a Christian Hip Hop group, consisting of siblings Joshua (25), Je’kob(23), and Rachael Washington (20), all from San Diego. Currently, Joshua is no longer part of the group. Joshua’s departure were one of the reasons Je’kob and Rachael reformed into the duo called The Washington Projects.

The trio had unprecedented success with their Word/Warner Bros debut, “The Fault Is History”. Their first radio single, “All Around The World,” shot straight to the top of the charts, while “True Love Waits” was simultaneously the most added on the CHR and AC formats. In addition, the project garnered two GMA Dove Awards, with five total nominations, and the group received extensive features on CNN Headline News, E!, Billboard, The WB, and a slot on Sessions@AOL.

But even with the tremendous amount of buzz and overwhelming fanfare, record label red tape soon wrapped itself around the burgeoning band, putting an extreme delay on what would’ve been Souljahz sophomore CD.

“Basically we were about to begin our new record after being gone on tour for at least a year and a half on that first record, but the entire staff of our label flipped upside down,” Je’kob recalls of the incredibly trying time. “When it came time to talk with the new cats, they had a different thought process on where our sound needed to go and there ended up being a lot of problems. We basically had our second record shelved entirely and spent the next several years trying to get out of our contract.”
