Biography

Andre Roberson, also known as “Dre Sr.”, burst onto the Kansas City Christian Hip scene in 2005. Originally known for his hit song “I’m Justified”, Dre quickly grew into one of Kansas City’s premiere Christian artists. Having grown up in the church, Dre Sr. was well versed in religion but void of any spiritual relationship with the God that he claimed. Being diluted by a false definition of repentance, Dre Sr. lived a lifestyle that was bound in sin with the belief that forgiveness merely required an “I’m sorry Father”. In the spring of 2005 Dre Sr. received God’s call to become a slave to the righteousness of Christ. Having suffered the loss of his first son that was born prematurely, Dre Jr., Andre adopted the name Dre Sr. in remembrance of him. Through his son’s death, Dre Sr. grew closer to Christ by recognizing God’s providence and his need of an intimacy with him. Now, more than ever before, Dre Sr. diligently disciples and evangelizes to people the importance of the Gospel of Jesus in hope that strongholds of sin might be broken, relationships might be gained, and lives would be reconciled to the Father.
Dre Sr. is different from other artists because of his style of delivery. Dre Sr. truly is one of the most entertaining and inspiring artists to grace the stage in a long time.

Lyrics

Die

Written By: Dre Sr feat TeRance

Hook:
I'm livin Roman 7/ Within myself i wrestle/ flesh and the Spirit they pull me in opposite directions// i know I'm wretched so i pray that Adonai/ will hear my cry and give me the grace to die (I'm screaming death to the flesh)// daily i fight my flesh and it will never rest/ but yet you tell me to put it's deeds to death// so imma DIE! Homie i gotta DIE! homie i gotta DIE!/ daily i gotta DIE! My flesh has gotta DIE!//

Verse 1:
1 rope, 1 chair, welcome to my suicide/ please don't try to stop me I know what I'm doing I've// already picked out my casket, my shirt, my suit and tie/ and I made up my mind that its time for this wretched dude to die// daily I fight myself cause I don't like myself/ I try to change but everyday I act just like myself// this is my cry for help cause I despise myself/ and if i belong to Christ then i gotta crucify myself// so I say sianara/ to the flesh of me that's desperately screaming out "feed me" like little shop of horror// this wild beast wants to feast on the kind of meat/ that makes me sin against my Father it makes me wanna holla (ahhhhh!!)// that's the monster raging inside/ and the only way he's going away is if Dre dies// so tell my wife and my momma don't cry/ the world will be better if I say goodbye// so ya boy has gotta DIE!!!

Hook:

Verse 2:
Black suit, black hurst, welcome to the cemetery/ black dress, black purse, wardrobe of my women family// members in attendance praying to see me buried/ and my 6 closest homie are the 6 strong men that carry// my pine box to the plot where they'll drop/ me six feet in a hole and put dirt over the top// right after they eulogize and say how they loved me a lot/ (this is a metaphor of my life) here let me paint the picture clearly// the men and women in the picture represent/ my brothers and sisters assisting in making sure that my sin is buried// and I'll admit it I desperately need assistance/ cause my sin is persistent and the cross I lift gets pretty heavy// but by His grace I continue to run the race/ and day by day my flesh gets placed inside of a grave// My life's an open book but if you take a closer look/ you'll see it reads like an obituary// everyday I gotta DIE!!!

Hook:

Verse 3:
This is the end of the road I gotta put a end to me/ cause I know my biggest enemy is the inner me// working diligently cause i ain't got time for chillin b/ I gotta be killing sin or my sin will be killing me// I'm pressing on cause I'm tired of moving backwards/ I've reached my boiling point and I hate my sin with a passion// my old master must be assassinated/ like the husband of Jacqueline Onasis// daily I'm fighting sin and the raging monster within/ and I daily die to my self and I live mortuary livin// and its the fight of my life and I desperately need your power/ cause my spirit is more than willing but my flesh is a coward// so my first step is realize I need your help cause ain't no way that I can fight successfully by myself // cause me vs. me equals death/ but me vs. me plus He equals death to the flesh// so I DIE!!!

Ohh

Ohh

Verse 1:
Okay I feel like partying to celebrate God lets see what we can do/ im hyped because we've been made alive like in Ephesians 2// a lot of yall might find this more shockin than Pikachu/ we party dawg infact we the only ones with a reason to// I can't keep this inside of me im following His command/ Psalm 149:3 says praise the Lord with your dance// so... Its alright man to move and rock/ as long as u in love with God when the music stops// cats be like (yooooo!) that's what you see em do when they crank that soulja boy/ but (dude) every time that we move its for Jehova boy// we must exhault Him because when He came and washed us/ He got a lot more than just some dirt up off of our shouders boy//

Hook:
We celebrating the King we love to give Him praise/ cause He shed His blood to redeem us if you love Jesus say// (ohhhhh, ohhhhh, ohhhhh,/ ohhhh, ohhhhh, ohhhhh)//

Verse 2:
Let' see... Ever since God's spirit indwelt me/ He's kept me I can't think of one time that He's left me// the Paraklete helps me walk on this earth like a pair of cletes/ and mercy and grace follow behind me like a backseat// everywhere we go we givin God the glory/ and we're letting people know the God that we serve is dope// so to my christin sorrorities and christian fraternities/ on campus' shining like lamps baby keep steppin' for da King// they think it aint no way that christians party/ please for our King homie we quick to party// This just the practice party this aint the actual party/ actually after we leave the earth we hit the after party//

Hook

Bridge:
Let ya fingers snap, and let ya hands clap/ and if ur excited that Jesus is coming back let me see u just rock wit me rock wit me(2xs)

Verse 3:
Basically ever since we came face to face with/ His grace it gave us the heart to worship and praise We're// elated so in all that we do we're gonna praise Him/ from our raps, high hats, finger snaps and bass kicks// see we don't party like the wicked/ although we might look the same its some major ways that we're different// we talk about the God above who's reigns with all splendor/ they talk about how they in love with strippers and bar tendors//so..we had to flip it up cause the God that fixed us up/ changed our style completely like Azriel when he switched it up// so get the picture cause its clearer than a 8 x 10/ we aint celebrating sin we just celebrating Him//

Hook

T-Mission:
They think it aint no way that christians party/ but for our King homie we're quick to party// ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh, oh,/ ohh, ohh, oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, oh, oh// (2x's)
