Reach Records was founded by Ben Washer and Lecrae in 2004 and has a roster of Christian artists that include Trip Lee, Andy Mineo, Lecrae, and Tedashii. It used to be the home of the Gospel Music Association’s 2019 Dove Award winner for Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song, GWAVI.
On January 31, 2022, Reach Records announced on social media that they had ended their relationship with the talented music producer and hip hop artist Gabriel Alberto Azucena, who goes by the stage name GAWVI.
“Due to behavior that is inconsistent with our core values, we have ended our professional relationship with GAWVI,” Reach Records statement on Instagram read. “This was a tough decision for us because of the level of complexity and because we invest in our artists not just for their talent, but also as brothers and sisters in Christ. This is something we have been processing for over a year and have wrestled with what would be the right way forward.”
