Biography

He grew up in the church and got saved at age 13. During that time he wrote religious raps and performed at church. He felt good representing Jesus. Although he was writing Godly raps, he was also doing secular raps as well. There was an internal battle within himself that he had to conquer that lasted for the majority of his teen years.

He was in junior high and high school performing at neighborhood parties with his five duece friends. In 1995, he invited his click to the youth revival at his church where he was performing. His friends never knew of the gospel rap he was doing and to their amazement, as they sat in the balcony, Chuck had seniors, young adults and kids bouncing to Jesus. They began calling him the Poetic Prophet. After graduating high school in 1997, he and his friend Brew (Dark Sunz) and 2Phat (Dark Sunz) released Darkside of the Game. It was their first project and it was hot. They had a great local buzz and were doing local concerts. Chuck was due to release a solo album next but never did. The potential deal went bad. That was when he made the decision to stick to gospel rap.

Chuck had a few kids and got married. Family life absorbed majority of his time so production of the album was slow and cheap. He met with a host of other producers who were mainly old friends(DJ Kodine from Kodine Entertainment and Mo Bread Entertainment) and his kinfolk(CK Sound) who learned the skill of making beats. In late 2004, he used a pre production studio in his friends garage and recorded the album. In 2005, he made his own graphics and disc labels, bought CD's and burned them on his home personal computer and began selling them. Lyrical Messages volume 1 was his first project. Now with a growing fan base, a stronger faith in Jesus Christ, and more knowledge about the industry, he has released volume 2, it's called Get Saved, and yes it is available now.

Lyrics

Get Saved

Written By: Poetic Prophet

Hook
Here’s what to do if you want to get saved
You gotta change your ways
And give God the praise
Repent your sins, and maybe change your friends
Believe in your heart and confess to him

V1
First things first, acknowledge the situation
Before your life gets taken you gotta get salvation
Second, figure out what it takes to get it
Accept Jesus Christ in your heart, tell me are you with it
Third, find a church that’s preachin the word
If they not preachin Jesus, then that’s absurd
Witness to all the unsaved people you know
Just plant the seed, God will make it grow
That’s number 4, and number 5 you gotta strive
Don’t be a dead Christian, get active, stay alive
Number 6 is not a trick but its hard to get,
Love ya enemies, even if they make you sick
Don’t forget sometimes, the situation seem hectic
Gotta pray everyday, that number siete
Number 8 man, gotta keep it str8 man
Know you going to heaven, understand your fate man
Number 9 is easy, don’t give up, keep trying
Always get up, when ya fall down
Last but certainly not least number 10
When its all said and done give all praises to him

Hook 2x

V2
Think about where you came from and what ya life like
Now think about what it could be if you live Christ like
Save ya money cause he paid the price right
Believe and confess, then glow like a night light
Shine bright, like you in the sun wearing tight white
He’ll put you on display just like a kite flight
Use me, as a testimony for the fake and the phony
I love being in your presence cause you put the spirit on me
Water my homies Lord, I’m a plant the seeds
I know that they want it Lord, cause you are what they need
It’s a crazy world Lord, with a wicked reality
So save all my friends cause they all got families
Put em in a position to give you the praise
Please read Matthew 6 so you can learn to pray
So when ya good days, get outweighed by the gray
You can still say, that Jesus is the way
The truth and the light today, so gone and get saved
Don’t be gone astray when the Lord come your way

Hook 2x

V3
You want to get saved so when you die you meet Christ
Then while you’re alive, you gotta have him in your life
Won’t nothing else suffice, he already paid the price
Came once so you can get saved before he come twice
Ain’t that nice, talk to God and get it right
With prayer as your device, the destination is precise
Let me give you some advice, while you wild like rice
Think twice, heaven is pie you need to get a slice
If you don’t it will burn worse than some dry ice
You’ll regret it for your life, hoping he comes thrice
My personal opinion about what you need to do
Just take a few moments and let God inside you
Soon you’ll see what he said was true
Then take your testament and testify for the crew
Hopefully they’ll say they want to get saved too
I see God working in you, so tell me what I gotta do

Hook 2x
