Biography

My name is Isaac Granados. I was born and raised in Fresno, CA. I have 1 brother and 2 sisters. My youngest sister is actually my cousin that my parents raised since before she can crawl. My parents raised us in a GOD fearing home. We attended church on a regular basis.

In 1997, at the age of 21, I met a Christian rapper named Loto. He was part of a group called C.H.A.N.G.E.S. (stands for CHRIST Has A New Generation Expressing Salvation). Loto invited me to join C.H.A.N.G.E.S. Before I met him, I had never rapped. But they were reaching the youth with their music. So I became a member of this Christian rap group. Loto gave me the name Ice4CHRIST.

C.H.A.N.G.E.S. started off recording songs to secular instrumentals, using a karaoke machine. We would go to the local Wherehouse and buy secular rap CD’s just to use their instrumentals to write our music to. We began performing and ministering to the youth at our home church (Cornerstone Church in Fresno, CA) and soon we were getting invitations to perform at other local churches and schools in Fresno.

Later in 1997, Cornerstone Church sponsored a City-Wide talent search. Local bands and rap groups took part in this talent search. C.H.A.N.G.E.S. went on to take 1st place in this competition. 1st place prize included professional studio time with Arodynamix.

C.H.A.N.G.E.S. split up in 1999. I walked away from the church. I was away from the church for 5 years. In 2004, I returned to Cornerstone church. In January 2005, I returned to Arodynamix to record my 1st single from my solo debut CD titled “Return Of The Prodigal Son.” In October 2006, I began working on my own Christian Recording Label called C.H.A.N.G.E.S. Records.

On June 30, 2007 I released my debut CD titled “Return Of The Prodigal Son” under C.H.A.N.G.E.S. Records. As of April 2008, I am currently working on another CD titled “Street Praize.” This CD is a collaboration CD with A.D. Da Disciple who is another artist on C.H.A.N.G.E.S. Records. The name of our group is Ill Disciples Of CHRIST. On June 27, 2008 we will be releasing a CD by C.H.A.N.G.E.S. recording artist IllPoetik. This CD was produced by me and is titled “The Great Commission.”

There have been some highlights in my road of Christian Rapping. In 1999, C.H.A.N.G.E.S. opened up for Unity Klan in Santa Maria, CA. In October of 2006, I was invited to perform and minister in Phoenix, AZ. On September 30, 2007 I opened up for Mary Mary and Kirk Franklin when they were in concert at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, CA.
