"Forever In Righteousness Enduring"

In 2003, four young men in Metro-Atlanta, Georgia decided that even though they were only 16 and 17 years old, they would dedicate their lives to Christ, live for His glory and let the whole world know about it.  So, rather than standing by and letting hip-hop continue to magnify lifestyles of self-indulgence and death, PROPHECY, JAEBIIRDE, D-REAL  and SNAP put their faith into rhymes, laid them down on hip-hop tracks and just “let the Lord be magnified .” Not only does FIRE intend on living up to their name, but they also intend on being the light in the darkness that leads youth away from the curses of sin.  <br>“…We the light of the world and it’s time to let us shout…”<br> ¯ Let Me Shout<br><br> FIRE stands out because their lyrics are given by the Holy Spirit to produce high quality music heavy on southern flavor that snatches hip-hop back from Satan.  The group started when these members of the youth group at International Gospel Outreach heard each others rhyming skills and found that they all were saying the same thing.  God showed them that their music was a desperately needed ministry that would strengthen other young Christian brothers and sisters.  Most of all, when they perform, they believe their music is used of God to save those who are lost in the hip-hop generation, who are not moved by what they hear from traditional and contemporary gospel.<br><br>“…I’m filled wit Jesus and there is not a remedy…”<br>¯ Hell’s Most Wanted<br><br> Working with the staff at new gospel label Mannafest Records and a young local producer known as Danny B. of Studio Manifest, FIRE has completed their first album (untitled as of yet) that includes the singles , “Hell’s Most Wanted,” “Let Me Shout,” and “Murder She Wrote.”  As their academic and other social activities allow, FIRE performs periodically at churches, local restaurants and schools, and at gospel events and concerts like the Holy Hip Hop Showcase hosted by Earthlink Live in Atlanta, Georgia.  Their manager, Anthony Poe, founder of Mannafest Records, along with their families and friends continue support and encourage FIRE with prayer and the Word of God.  FIRE receives love from the community everywhere they go, but they acknowledge the constant need for prayers to go forth on their behalf to stay strong and true to what they rap about, for wisdom and for more faith that will add a blessing to everything they do for His glory.<br>       “…I’m shouting the glory so victory is not denied.”<br>¯ Let Me Shout<br><br> - Joy Igonikon

Bio

JAEBIIRDE: “Most people think of gospel as hymns but we’re bringing it as hip-hop, giving it a whole new vibe, and it’s for Christ.” Fifteen-year-old James Tibbs, a Pastors son from Kelleen, Texas expresses himself in Christian hip-hop because of the goodness of the Lord. “He’s always there for me, showing me grace and mercy, by saving us when we don’t care or acknowledge it. In fact, it’s the way people don’t acknowledge God that makes me want to do more music,” and Jaebiirde has definitely embarked on the opportunity, the time, and the inspiration to do more with this genre than anyone has ever seen before.

DA R.O.C.: He may only be a 16-year-old Christian from Atlanta, but his faith and stage name, which is an acronym for Da Righteousness Of Christ, speak to a wisdom that is beyond his years. “There are lies in the music industry that infect, blind and deafen souls from seeing the truth.” Isaiah Linsey’s lyrical prowess comes at a time when there is only a minimum of young Christian artists prospering in the industry, and with FIRE, he plans on being one of them that can open heaven’s floodgates for them. In Christian hip-hop, D-R.O.C. will be “bringing the truth the same way secular artists bring lies, but in a way that young people can understand.”

CASHYIOUS: “There are souls that need to be saved... Period.” That is the need fueling the fire in 16-year-old Noel De Los Santos to rap about spiritual warfare. Before he got saved, he believed Christians were “lame,” but Christ was enough to draw him and make him strong and bold enough to use His words to grab the devil by the throat. This talent, born in San Antonio, Texas, said that he had no musical interests until he gave his life to Christ. His love for God’s Word and for hip-hop gave him the desire to see the two united. “It’s not lame to rap about something that is edifying to the spirit man.”

D-REAL: Sixteen year old Antoine Ragland’s central desire is to “please God with whatever he does.” Being a member of FIRE has allowed him to do exactly that. A native of Atlanta, Antoine has not only dedicated his life to serving God, but has dedicated his love and ability to rhyme to this new and exciting music ministry. Among the many feelings that motivate Antoine to do gospel rap, he’s doing it because “this is fun and will make me better, make others better and please God.” God has shown Himself strong in Antoine’s life through various trials and tribulations, so now in thanks Antoine is telling his testimony of faith in Christ to “anybody and everybody that’s willing to listen and allow the songs to minister to them.”
