Feeling a bit camera shy


Robert Badgett aka Direct was born in Boston MA to Robert Badgett Jr. and Maggie Houston in the early summer month of June 1980. His parents got divorced when he was only five years old. His father struggled with an alcohol addiction and was a local womanizer and drug dealer. When Direct were 8 his mother remarried and moved to Brockton with his brother and sister. Later giving birth to his younger sister. Direct grew up like many separated households weekends and summers in the city of Boston and weekdays spent in Brockton. As years grew on he began to be attracted to the same things he watched his father do. Money, drugs and women. He spent his days as a teenager in school slacking barely graduating and nights hanging partying and smoking weed. As time went on the love for weed and women
grew very dim.

His mother’s family had a strong church back round. Many Sundays were spent in the back of the church sleeping. Finally it was time to wake up. Direct began to seriously seek God at the age of 18 yrs old. He was mentored by a youth minister at his church. Today Direct is the President of Bloctrine Records. He’s married to his beautiful wife Lanisha and they have boys, Jahmeir and Robert IV. He is currently in school and training to become an ordained minister and finishing his degree in business management. “ I’ve been called to servant hood so I’m willing to serve the hood” Direct.
