(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) -- Clear Sight Music released FLAME's sixth full-length album today, appropriately titled The 6th, via Central South and Infinity Music Distribution. The highly anticipated follow-up to the 2010 release, Captured, shot straight to #1 on iTunes' Hip-Hop Chart, and debuted at #9 on the Top Albums Chart, sharing the Top 10 with albums from such chart-topping artists as Adele, Big Time Rush and Bruce Springsteen.

The 6th has debuted to glowing reviews from a wide variety of media outlets, including TheChristianManifesto.com ("The album itself is a benchmark in Christian hip-hop") and JesusFreakHideout.com ("FLAME has returned with a spiritually relevant message and a solid sound behind it").

"He's been nominated for a Grammy, two Doves, and two Stellars, but somehow FLAME is still one of rap's best-kept secrets," wrote Andy Argyrakis for Christianity Today. "That's all about to change on this sixth album, which benefits from his rapid rhymes, stellar production, and a slew of guest collaborators (including DecembeRadio, LeCrae, Thi'sl, Young Noah, and V.Rose)."

"Wow," said FLAME, reacting to the album's strong start. "Being #1 on iTunes is evidence of God's grace. I'm praying that it translates into lives impacted."
