'Where Our Goal Is Souls"
Cityside Records was launched in 1999 to become the #1 Major independent R&B/Rap Label in Florida. Started by Stevie Thompson and financed by his brother Alonzo Davis, the label released 4 projects which one was the Makaveli II project. The label released mixtapes worldwide selling over 1,000,000 million units through their distribution partners. The label's partner Alonzo scrapped his half after going into marriage leaving Mr. Thompson to carry the wieght. the label lacked finances between the years of 2004 to 2007 but still released numerous mixtapes and underground albums by The CitySide Hot Boyz, D.J. Stevie Tee, F.U.K. (Florida Underground Kingz), U.G.H.(Underground Hustle).
For Stevie Thompson At the end of 2007 seven years after knowing he was being called and led by God to preach the gospel, he surrendered unto God to do His will. God revealed to him that he was being educated after all those years in the music industry for the good of God and not himself and this was the reason for him even being in the music industry.
Mr. Thompson who between 2007 and 2009 was called Brother Steve and released his first ministry C.D. called: A Million & 1 Souls Saved (SEE HERE)
God revealed to him that the purpose of ministry was to win souls to Him through
Jesus Christ (ישוע המשיח).
When listeners of the church heard his music ministry they told him that he was preaching through the music and after that he began to take bible scripture and break it down as a pastor he was called to do in the music he released.
