Biography

Imagine a rap artist who in his music balances comedy, weightiness & relevance in order to impact crowds with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Meet the artist, K-Drama, a 27-year-old writer & producer who acts out the King on beats, encouraging people to evaluate their selves & make change as necessary. His gift has made room for him in the Christian Rap genre as he has produced for great artist such as Lecrae, Flame & Tedashii & has featured vocally on songs with Sho Baraka, R-Swift & over 100 other artists across the world. K-Drama has also partnered with Christian MMA clothing line, Jesus Didn’t Tap, crafting 2 theme songs for the brand.

Born A. Regis Jones in Cincinnati, OH, he had a difficult childhood. In 7 years, he attended 5 different schools. Regis oftentimes felt neglected, so he lived for attention & affirmation. At Sunday service, he quoted Bible verses in hopes to impress members while at school he did the total opposite to impress his peers. Regis lived a double life.

It wasn’t until his friend, Marquez Patterson died at the age of 13 of a heart failure that Regis had a rude awakening. He realized that life is short and no man knows when he’ll die. Hence, Regis became a born again Christian at Marquez’s funeral without an altar call. Through God, Regis sought out the purpose of his life.

Without intentionally looking, Regis discovered part of his purpose through another Christian rapper performing at an out of town youth retreat. Though Regis never rapped prior to salvation, Regis was encouraged by the Holy Spirit to pursue rap ministry as a means to evangelize to sinners & encourage Christians in their walk. As Regis was penning songs, his Pastor, Ronny Lott, took note of his interest & invited Regis to perform in his 1st concert alongside Grapetree Records act, Preachas In Tha Hood.

After a successful performance, Regis (now known as K-Drama) began ministering in outreaches, prisons, schools, churches, festivals & anywhere he had an opportunity to perform. Over time, he made 3 albums before signing his 1st recording contract with Holy Hip Hop Music/EMI Gospel. This spring boarded his career, opening many opportunities for him to spread the love of Jesus Christ through his music across the United States.

His 5th album, BoomBaptism, garnered his most popular song to date, “Air Jordan” which was a phenomenon in the Christian Rap genre. This song was remixed over 70 times including “Kobe Bryant On Em’” by Sho Baraka which ended up being included on Sho’s latest album & featured K-Drama on the 3rd verse.

Now signed, with premier record label, Cross Movement Records, K-Drama’s platform has been graciously extended, charging Christians to workout spiritually through his debut CMR release We Fit: The Workout Plan. Provident-Integrity/Sony Music distributes this album.

K-Drama is a proud husband & father of 3 children. Him & his wife are active in their home church, desiring growth in themselves, their church body & the inner city surrounding them. Because of the generous support around the world, K-Drama is able to pursue music full time. K-Drama is honored to be able to do all that he does. By trusting in the Lord, God has directed K-Drama’s path.

Lyrics

Teeter Totter

Written By: Anthony R. Jones (ASCAP)

Verse 1
The Lord touched my lips and put His words in my mouth/
And like lukewarm saints, these words I'm gonna spit em out/
I have no worries because they call my Lord Jehovah Jireh/
And in case you don't know that means He's my provider/
Anything according His will He'll equip me with/
Money, cars, beats, rhymes, all for his benefit/
I hide his words in my heart so that I'll remember it/
So if I get famous then my will I'll surrender it/
My aim is not to flame the fame/
I frame the flame and daily maintain the name/
that reigns over every name, so I refrain the gain/
Of selfish pleasures, He came for pain/
Died on the cross so that I'll never be the same/
Once I confess my sins and become born again/
Most Christians don't last that long, but I believe in His word/
That's why my stability is strong/

Chorus
They go back and forth (4x)
They go up and down (4x)
Like Teeter Totters (8x)

Verse 2
Yo!!! It's only in His word that I'm stable/
Most Christians are unstable like 3 legged tables/
I must admit, discipline isn't easy/
I know I make it look simple but you gots to believe me/
Ya boy catches the bus to shows, waiting in the cold/
Feeling like an eskimo/
Holy pockets but I ain't heading to the check and go/
Stressed out my folk, and I be the 1st to let you know/
Can't be American Idol, so my Clay be Aiken (Aching)/
But I trust in the potter who molds me, there's no mistaking/
But sometimes I feel like Habukkak/
The wicked compasses the righteous is how that looks/
They seem not to reap what they sow and/
It seems like you won't pay what you owe but/
I trust in you regardless of how things look/
Cause I believe in every word in that Holy Book/

Chorus
They go back and forth (4x)
They go up and down (4x)
Like Teeter Totters (8x)

Verse 3
The flesh is never satisfied, in His Word I'm stable/
The Word has power, in Him I'm enabled/
To mortify sin and subjucate any desire/
Esteeming itself higher than my Lord's empire/
The work God gave me doesn't ensure my stability/
The fear of the Lord does, I dwell in His facility/
Without obedience, I couldn't not facilitate ministry/
And I would be worse than carnal rappers in the industry/
Many don't seek His kingdom 1st/
And that's why many in the kingdom thrist/
Cause the effects of sin are only temporary/
I've tried it before and found out sin ain't meant to carry/
Me through hard times, I cast my cares on Jesus/
We have a partnership, God really needs/
But we gotta put him 1st and not our rap ministries/
If we put Him 1st then we'll become everything we're meant to be/

Chorus
They go back and forth (4x)
They go up and down (4x)
Like Teeter Totters (8x)

Verse 1
If pain is weakness leaving the body then I cry every black night/Tryna get my act right, trying to get my pack tight/Cause that might be the reason why I lost the last fight/Cause I couldn’t recall words of the 1 I’m trying to act like/People wanna act like they don’t wanna feel me/Like everyone is chisled, I gotta bring the real me/The stretch marks, the ill me, the sinful, the filthy/ain’t what you expected, get a refund, bill me/But the Body’s looking sluggish, Christian rappers wanna thug it/Christian’s pulled to sin everytime their flesh is tuggin/Anyone living holy? Sounds familiar?/What happened to being different, I thought we were Peculiar/But folk can’t tell the difference, We do the same things they do/This earth is so temporal, Eternal is Jesus/We need discipline, gotta start resisting sin/Wanna carry your cross? Then you gotta/

Hook
Get ya weight up (4x)/You can do it (4x)/Get ya weight up (4x)/You can do it (4x)

Verse 2
I got the top trainer, Dae Dae in my corner/Strategy on my mind, leave him to the coroner/They think I’m shadow boxing, the crowd starts mocking/Not seeing my fight even though they are watching/But They aren’t paying attention, we don’t fight against flesh/this slugfest ain’t easy for me to pass unlike a drug test/Cause this mess, I’m attracted to, but I’m trying to counteract it dude/Seems like in the day I’m acting cool then at night it comes straight out the blue/Back then in the Spirit, I use to look puny /A scrub in the ER like George Clooney/Suffering from malnourishment & dehydration/I didn’t live for Jesus, I lived for the sensation/But that really depressed me, empty is how it left me/Because it’s so short lived, now it doesn’t impress me/I live for what’s eternal, I live life on the benchpress/Cause muscles don’t come without resistance, so/

Hook
Get ya weight up (4x)/You can do it (4x)/Get ya weight up (4x)/You can do it (4x)

Verse 3
It’s easier to resist sin that doesn’t mean much/You Wouldn’t do it no way because that’s not your lust/But what’s the thing that competes with Jesus for your heart/That sin that attracts you, ranks highest on your chart/Trust me, I’ve been their, sometimes I’m still their/I overcome sin but still have to peel layers/Of deep rooted wrongdoing, so frustrating/I love God but I wished it showed in my patience/Cause that’s where the power comes, that’s where the peace comes/That’s where the fulfillment comes, That’s where the beast comes/When you start working out your salvation/With fear and trembling, call it formation/So let’s up the ante, Sin no longer amp’s me/Gotta read the manuel, His Word does the clamping/When I press towards God I press away sin/Sin is the weight and I’m benchpressing/

Long as there's breath in my body, winning souls is my hobby/I'm walking by faith cause I know God got me/I'm thankful to the Lord, I won't let the devil rob me/So when life gets me down, I gotta do what God taught me

I'm getting up (8x)

Verse 1
It's been a year since my Dad died/Still fresh, can't lie, as I analyze, Mother's Day, Still feeling them bad vibes/Mama called, said "Come Quick"., Dad waiting on standby/He bout to fly home, heart rate dropping, yet our prayers were Anti, I don't understand why, God, were your hands tied?/Yes your ways are sovereign, so that lie, I can't buy/But it seems like since then, my life has went down this landslide, The struggle has increased tremendously, and I/Don't see no hope, I feel like everything I do fails/Making beats that people like yet I ain't making no new sales/My flesh had me feeling betrayed by those I thought I knew well/Felt like my Father turned me away like Abraham did Ishmael/Yet I can't help but think of everyone who has it worse/People over in Burundi dying of thirst/Keep my head to the hills no matter how much it hurts/I got a job I have to do until He puts me in the dirt

Verse 2
I was paralyzed by fear, been struggling all year, tryna (trying to) make a dollar, nobody holla, I'm in my Camry shedding tears/I'm in the whip, feeling whipped, think I might just call it quits/Why are we so broke if many say that I have a gift?/Maybe since I'm older, maybe it's all over/Box it up for sale, all of my keyboards and midi controllers/Cause we need cash, need it fast, or else feel the aftermath/Lose everything we have, don't wanna go down that path/Despite how hard we tried, we still didn't make it/My energy is zapped, my heart can't take it/It's so embarrassing in public, to be this naked/But I have to b/c even Christian rappers fake it/Still I don't have it bad when I think of others/I think about my Mother, man she lost her lover/I should be thankful for my life, just lost my grandmother/We running out of time, I can't prolong it for another, day

Verse 3
My issues make me tired/I don't feel like answering the phone, I'm not inspired/God telling me to get up, preach to the choir/Many of them are gonna burn in the lake of fire/Gotta ignore the distractions/They tryna (trying to) weigh me down so I won't take action/But I need to make it happen/I have to preach the Gospel way beyond rapping/Sand is dropping down the hole/Gotta get control, they're losing their souls/So the center of my life can't be this hole in my pocket/If I don't feel power, I must plug in the socket/Can't let this world drain me/The world shouldn't ever be able to explain me/I must condition myself/To be dictated by the scriptures and not by wealth
