Being pronounced dead on arrival on Halloween was a perfect avenue for God to manifest himself through the flesh and breathe life back into G-ROD. He stamped it with a raw witty flow with lyrics straight from the throne to the dome! You will find sweet metaphors and healing with "The Remedy"

Biography

Gerod Sturgis, born January 25, 1979, in Selbyville, Delaware was definitely born for the purposes of edifying the Kingdom of God and faced opposition from the enemy, even since the beginning of his life. His mother experienced great difficulties in delivering Gerod, and even was faced with the choice of her own life over his. His mother chose life for him, and he was born at 10 months 10lbs and 7oz, a big healthy baby boy.

Later on in his life he the enemy tried many different times to end his life and his potential to be used for the Kingdom. He experienced three car accidents, one of which the car flipped over five times carrying himself, a 16 and 6 yr old passenger, and they all walked away with no scratches.

After making a few bad choices, Gerod began heavily selling and using drugs, which led to an overdose on Halloween October 31, 1999, nearly ending his life. He was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead on the scene. He experienced intense spiritual warfare during this time, and promised to God that if he were to get him through this he would serve Him for the rest of His life. God did save Gerod on that day, and since then, he has been using his gifts of poetry, rap, and preaching God’s word to serve Him.
