Christian HipHop / Rap / Christian Urban / R&B
I make this music out of sure passion to share Christ with teens and young adults that like rap music. I believe that music sets moods, influences beliefs, and behaviors. I believe in the power of the Gospel to change and transform lives. Romans 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth" KJV. As a young Christian I found that I loved the music that was played in church, it strengthened me and motivated me to live for Christ but outside of church when I just wanted to hang out, the music didn't fit.
I did not relate to the music unless I was in the middle of the worship
experience. Then when I began serving as the youth director for my church I noticed a lot of teens had the same problem. They were touched in service but once they left the four walls, there were also touched by the music of their culture. After realizing the gift of making rap music that I used before I became a Christian can be used for Christ, I began to write. "…I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some" 1 Corinthians 9:22 NIV. My first song was entitled Christians For Life, which was also the name of the youth ministry. God used the song to bless the teens and their parents. Young people in an inner city that was plagued by gangs were yelling "Fo' Life!" signifying that they were Christians for life and not yelling "Thug Life". Currently, I continue use my God-given gifts of preaching and making music to share the Gospel in a way that will be relevant to this generation, speaking life and helping them through the things that they may be experiencing.
