BandHip Hop


Lance Bernard Powell, rap name Da Wyzeman: I was born on March 14, 1991 in Memphis, Tennessee. I was raised up in the church – Longview Heights SDA Church. Since I was a young boy singing solos for children and youth choirs. My mother, grandmother, and three sisters raised me in our fatherless home. Some people thought that the lack of a male figure in the home would threaten my personality. But because I was taught better and because of a large male group of cousins and church members I turned out an intelligent and handsome young man. The Great Commission (TGC) –the Holy Hip Hop Group- make up a large portion of the male figures in my life. When this group started I immediately began sharpening my rapping skills so that I could one day rap for Christ like my role models. TGC also inspired me to listen to other gospel rap artists. Before the gospel rap influence I wrote worldly lyrics influenced by Bone Thugs N Harmony, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Notorious B.I.G., Bow Wow, Three Six Mafia, and many other rapping greats. When I was a young boy, I sang solos for children and youth choirs. Once my voice changed my singing voice went away and I fully dedicated myself to rapping. My skills as a rapper did not become great until I decided to stop writing secular lyrics and write spiritual masterpieces. Even now I won’t turn back to the world because God gave me these talents to use for Him not for the world. So now I am apart of The Great Commission so I can help fulfill the mission of telling the world about the gospel and the soon coming of Jesus Christ. With the help of my fellows surrounding me, and God continually giving me wisdom, I know I will be able to touch the world. Be wise and be of God! And remember Isaiah 40:8, The grass withereth and the flower fadeth but the word of God shall stand forever!

Chorus: Dr. King Had a dream
