Biography

AFTER BEING A HARDCORE RAPPER AND A SINNER FOR SO LONG, MY LIFE STARTED TO CHANGE..THE PEOPLE I HUNG WITH I DIDNT WANT TO HANG WITH ANYMORE..PLACES I WENT I DIDNT WANT TO GO ANYMORE..MY MUSIC HAD SO MUCH ANGER.BUT I WASNT ANGRY ANYMORE.THE ONLY PERSON IM ANGRY WITH NOW IS THE DEVIL. I FELT GOD DRAWING ME CLOSER TO HIM..MY MUSIC NOW IS MY TESTIMONY..I LISTEN TO MANY CHRISTIAN RAPPERS AND I THANK GOD FOR THEM BUT MOST DONT APPLY THE WORD AND THE STRUGGLE THAT IT IS TO STAY SAVED..ITS NOT EASY. SO AS A MINISTER IT IS MY DUTY TO SPEAK THROUGH MY MUSIC AND LET SAVED AND UNSAVED PEOPLE ALIKE KNOW THAT THIS WALK WITH CHRIST IS NOT ALWAYS GLORY GLORY AND HALELUYAH..ITS AN EVERYDAY FIGHT AND ITS AN EVERYDAY STRUGGLE. I FEEL THAT MY MUSIC PORTRAYS THAT...TO MAKE A LONG BIO SHORT,I MAKE DELIVERANCE MUSIC!!!
