My music will bridge the gap between the older Christian Community and the younger Christian Community and display the fact that we have all things in common, "Jesus."

Biography

Big R was born in Durham NC and raised in Franklin-
ton/Louisburg NC. He first began his rap career as an unsaved 12 year old mc who grew up under the likes of hip hop legends such as Big Daddy Kane, Gang Star, Cool G Rap and others. Through the years he has won many talent shows, street battles, and has worked with a number of music producers.

After becoming born-again at Livingstone College in fall 94, contrary to popular belief he realized through a brother in Christ that he could continue to spit but for Jesus. This brother in Christ would later bless him with Holy Hip Hop CD'S by artist such as DOC/Disciples of Christ, T-Bone, and Idol King. The wait was over, now Big R could fulfill destiny through being who God/Jesus had made him to be.

Big R's plight is to live and preach Gods word in such a practical way that masses of souls can receive (Jeremiah1:5). Big R believes that Christian Hip Hop can be effective and soulful. He also believes that there is a niche for him in Hip Hop.

Big R aka Pastor Macon is also Pastor of Faith That Works Christian Church located in China Grove, North Carolina. He is the Owner of Cross Road Youth Services, and Macon Ministries. He is currently seeking to complete his Master of Divinity at Hood Theological Seminary located in, Salisbury, NC. His number one Goal is to "Soully" Win Souls to the body of Jesus by preaching and teaching the Word of God to the lost(Proverbs 11:30). This will take place through crossing secular barriers (Luke 14:23), and relating to Gods people in the way Jesus did, "Strong as a Lion but Humble as a Dove" (Hosea 5:14, Mathew 10:16).

Written By: Big R

Hook
I wanna be with you,
