J-Mercy is true Holy Hip Hop. I'm the new holy hip hop apostle!! Press Play!!


I grew up in Southern New Jersey. I graduated from St. Francis University as a Bachelor of Science with a degree in Business Management in 2002. After I graduated I fell into the wrong influences of the streets and made a big mess of things. I moved to Syracuse NY 3 years ago and turned my life around. I've been writing poetry since the age of 13. The past year I began writing strong poetry giving praise to the Lord. The past few months I began writing holy hip hop songs and started laying tracks down. My influences are Michael Jackson, Nas,Mos Def,Biggie, Busta Rhymes, Eminem, Kirk Franklin and Marvin Sapp. My song "Move to the Lord" made it on DJ Gemstarrz Kush Summer 3 mixtape dropping June 9, 2010. God put my song amongst well-known secular artists such as 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, Eminem to name a few. God gives me the words for a song the beat comes in my head and me and my producer B.Harrison make music. B.Harrison is a drummer at my church, "Abundant Life Christian Center" located in East Syracuse New York. It all came together and stayed in the church family. My friend "Godchild" Rufus Morris whom is also a member of my church gave me good Godly advice in making music. With God on my side the sky is the limit and the destination is heaven!!!
