Biography

For several years now, Anointed Kings Alliance has been impacting the lives of young people across the Twin Cities Area and beyond with their high energy, quality hip-hop performance and most of all, with their message of HOPE. A.K.A. has quickly become one of the Twin Cities top Hip-Hop gospel acts, with performances at Club 3degrees, First Avenue, Holy Hip Hop Awards (Atlanta, GA), Youth Retreat Centers, churches across America and have performed with artists such as Grammy Award nominees Excelsior Choir, KJ-51, Cross Movement, Gospel Gangsta's, Tonex, D.J.Maj, LA, Xross, N-Finite, Minneapolis Gospel Sound, Urban Street Level and many more.

With their latest CD project "Anointed Kings", they are already receiving wide spread accolades from local and regional radio stations. As Pastor Efram Smith of The Sanctuary Church states "Their lyrics contain messages that are uplifting, authentic and bring the message of Jesus Christ to a level that is relevant to this youth culture without watering down the true essence of the message." And the music is fresh and unique.

Aside from their performance, these three talented men, bring life experience and wisdom to their music, lyrics and to their ministry. Stacey, Yotman, and Damon are very active in their community and serve as positive role models to our youth. "They are extremely talented young men, but more importantly they are sincere and mature examples of authentic Christ-like men." claims Pastor Marque M. Jensen, North Minneapolis Christian Fellowship.

A.K.A. has also developed a unique educational program for high schools and colleges that teaches students about the history of Rap/Hip-Hop and it's key elements, with an inspirational twist. Once the seminars/workshops are over they perform and demonstrate all of the elements that they just taught the students. A.K.A has received great praise from Bethel College and Crown College and are currently doing a 14 week high school program called "HIP HOP ACADEMY" through the H.Y.P.E. Helping Youth Promote Empowerment program in the Minneapolis Public School system.

Lyrics

Anointed Kings

Written By: AKA

Anointed Kings come on we 'bout to bring it to you

Verse 1: Who would of ever thought that gospel rap would be bangin in the club/ gravitating to thugs, make ‘em reach in their pocket and throw away there drugs/ big brothas with the mean mugs get shook by the Spirit now they can’t help it but spread the love/ you know the ones that be poppin the slugs, hardcore saggin so hard their back pockets drag on the floor/ Anointed Kings couldn’t take it no more, now we got to bring the word to your front door/ rich or poor, urban evangelist, we get sick with this/sent to this, Anointed Kings built for this/ fit for the Master’s use, God took the place of the gin and juice/ the old me would be cussing at you, but thank God for deliverance/ Anointed Kings all on your premises, all in your face like a dentist, Whoa!/ From the church to the trenches, we teach grown up to infants, for instants, people that’s trapped like dogs behind invisible fences/ we don’t just grab em we clench em check the credentials/ Anointed Kings all in your mental!

Chorus: Anointed Kings flow it/ cause we was anointed to flow it, Holy Ghost poets/ waive your hands in the air like you know it/ hit the dance floor like you know it/ bounce to the track like you know it

Verse 2: Yeah you know it, its them Holy Ghost filled poets/ filled with living water we aint sippin on no moet, keep it goin/ we’ve maintain through good or stormy weather/ iron sharpens iron boy we sharper than ever, I’m writing King decrees for these wac emcees/ thou shall stop spittin death in the ears of our teens, the worship of bling, bling/ leaves my mouth sour, you coward, words devour, son music has power!/ Before mankind exist God anointed my lips/ I grip mics in fist, spit heat melt hearts that frostbit/ come off it/ if you think were leavin are thrones, you dreamin of chrome, we got eternal homes on our domes/ spittin these poems, words Abba Daddy condones/ bring it Goliath I got my sling shot and my stone/ about to explode, like 44 blast through strong hold/ kick in the door to walk the road destiny chose!

Verse 3: Many are called but few are sent/ few are chosen but many went, they got this whole thing bent/ without a vision your sight is unclear/ were here to speak the truth bring it straight to your ear/ better prepare AKA world premiere/ were here to worship Christ throw your hands in air/ because it uncut uncensored, but real clear/ absolute truth we spit it with no fear/ from the alley, to the church, to club we aint scared!/ We spit it, we won’t quit it, until you get it, and live it/ Jesus Christ is with it, you hate to admit, here is are resume we submit it/ true hip-hop emcees don’t you get it?/ Revelations 1:6 because it’s written/ so please listen to this whole new edition/ kings and queens grabbin the mic
Representin/ evolving to the true highest form and new position,/ will it be heaven or hell? It’s your decision.

Chorus: Anointed Kings flow it/ cause we was anointed to flow it, Holy Ghost poets/ waive your hands in the air like you know it/ hit the dance floor like you know it/ bounce to the track like you know it.

New Milenium

Written By: Yotman

Chorus: New millennium last days I tell to you for the last time for you mind, God’s coming line: Ohh…Ahh

Check this out, the living God is coming no doubt/ you might as well stand up, you might as well shout/ wake up! This aint no time for taking no naps/ ask yourself… are you ready?/ God’s word is never petty, still cutting like a double edge machete/ piercing your spirit and your soul/ these last days we have got to be bold/ these devils picking up these dead spirits like crows

It’s the new mille/ the devil is out for the kill, you better grab your sword and shield and guard your grill/ demons run in scream panics/ they can’t stand it, how we hit the planet with the word like God command it/ Anointed Kings breaking them strong holds/ just like Samson when he’s rippin the lions torso/ breakin his foes, burn Holy Spirit just like arson/ it just like fire when it shot up in your cartilage

Chorus: New millennium last days I tell it to you for the last time for you mind, God’s coming line: Ohh…Ahh (repeat)

It’s a new millennium and for some/ your filling your draws cause your living deaf and dumb/ you can’t even feel where I’m coming from, don’t know your in bondage in need of freedom/ your hiding from your worries running from your fears/ your looking for a preacher to tickle your ears/ to whom will you turn in your final hour/ the false God that you serve or the 1 eternal power?

Coming through the scene cousin/ and it’s a new frontier, cause 1999 gone and 04 is the year/ it the new era and it the new millenny/ I got a sweet tooth for Christ like a box of good and plenty/ here to tear down the walls and build a Christian city/ destroy all myths because sin be looking pretty/ being deceived by satan kid he use you like a genny/ like smoke crack yo son you looking kind of skinny

Chorus: New millennium last days I tell to you for the last time for you mind, God’s coming line: Ohh…Ahh

A new milly, people still living silly/ they’ve gone from hot to lukewarm to living chilly/ my brothas feel me, peep the madness in the inner city/ from the pretty suburban streets with crooked church committees/ spiritual warfare going on from Italy to Philly/ and the battles becoming deadly like to Tupac and Biggie (for really)/ you know the deally and the drilly/ true sons will she the father actors get the emmy

What you gonna do when the trumpet sound/ when God open up the sky you can’t skip town/ the devil bout to run this earth like its his playground/ he coming straight for them people who aint saved now/ I’m so glad that I’m covered in the blood now/ you can’t play this like an episode from x-file/ I got the word and I run it like a hundred miles/ I’m standing on God’s word like it floor tile (check it out!)

Bibilical Stories

Written By: AKA

Verse1: Were all familiar with Moses delivered from the Nile river/ by Pharaoh’s daughter who in time became his caregiver/ to burning bush where Moses met God the story we remember/ to Exodus where God became the Red Sea splitter/ yo peep this/ no man could match Moses meekness/ but Moses was no match for his flesh when it came creepin/ check it out/ God told Moses speak to a rock/ and water would flow the community and its livestock/ but Moses grew weary (why?)/ Because Israel complained/ and snap yo son became temporarily insane/ instead of speakin/ he took his rod and started beatin/ twice he struck the rock/ till water started leakin/ disobedient God’s angry cause he took the credit/ so the promise land leader the father had to edit/ Moses with God, no man could be tighter/ to whom much is given man much more is required (read it)

Hook: These are some biblical stories/ and we gon’ break em down in laymen’s terms/ so get your bibles and turn/ so now you can learn the spirit discerns/ the soul yearns/ daddy concerned/ he wants you ready when he returns
Repeat 2x

Verse 2: This one right here is about Job this man had everything/ You might as well say he was famous/ this man was living blameless/ if he was here today he be similar Donald Trump/ his cash flows is probably as fat as Professor Clump/ with 7 sons and 3 daughters now he was no chump/ now here come satan conniving ready to tear it up/ he knew that Job loved God and truly feared God/ the hedge of protection around Job was the hands of God/ satan said if you take that away I bet he’ll dis you God/ so God allowed satan to attack various parts of his life/ but God said listen here satan you cannot take his life/ its just a test from God to see if Job would stay right/ all of a sudden Job’s days begin to turn to night/ I only got 16 bars now I got to release this mike/ now you gotta grab the bible yourself, learn it with all your might/ see I done did my job, I gave you incite

Hook: These are some biblical stories/ and we gon’ break em down in laymen’s terms/ so get your bibles and turn/ so now you can learn the spirit discerns/ the soul yearns/ daddy concerned/ he wants you ready when he returns

Verse 3: I had the greatest revelation but did the biggest betrayal/ but my faith in Christ kept me condemned from hell/ I was considered the man, the aggressor, the rock/ I struggled with pressure from my peers it wouldn’t stop/ constantly it was a battle,. A battle everyday/ Mark 14:36 (yo Pete, watch and pray)/ I never will for get the things he say/ because my flesh is weak and yo I had to pray/ cause the story of my life is/ crazy and trifling/ mountain top experience and valley low enlightens / like my great ancestors a heart that’s contrite/ cause it faith by grace kid that’s living righteous/ now let me paint a quick scene of my ministry/ appointed by God but almost sifted by the enemy/ predestined before the world begin/ despite all my issues to reach the hearts of men (now peep it)

Hook: These are some biblical stories/ and we gon’ break em down in laymen’s terms/ so get your bibles and turn/ so now you can learn the spirit discerns/ the soul yearns/ daddy concerned/ he wants you ready when he returns
