THE MAD PROPHETS:

What hip-hop needs is MCs who are prophets and not in it for the profit. Enter, the Mad Prophets! These three MCs: Quan, Temple and SW are a unique blend of midwest/east coast style and bibliocentric content who make today's youth the "Reason for their Rhetoric." Their diverse beats, instantly memorable hooks, and vivid wordplay distinguish them among hundreds of other rap crews.

SW:

Often people will remark that they are seeking peace in the midst of a storm. It was in the midst of serving time in prison that SW found this peace he so desperately longed for.

This peace was and could only be found in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. “ For me, finding peace in the Lord Jesus was like a ton of weights being lifted from my shoulders,” SW recounts. Life had deposited SW in a state of confusion and distress without any direction. “I had plans for my life…but I watched each one come crashing to the ground.”

SW made a bad decision that would change his life from bad to worse. He began to sell drugs on the streets of Detroit. “ I was selling cocaine…and didn't’t stop until I was finally set-up by a guy I knew”.

SW ended up serving four years of a five year sentence. He explains how he was tired of fighting a losing battle,” this may sound crazy, but it was a relief for me going to prison, I was that tired.”

SW eventually surrendered to God,” one night I asked God if you’re real, reveal yourself to me. Immediately the Holy Spirit flooded my body and I felt this love and power within me I had never experienced. I experienced the peace Jesus spoke about in the bible. That peace changed my outlook on life.”

QUAN:

I don’t have a nickname or an alias, but I do have a message. The message I speak is one of redemption and revolution. First of all everyone is in need of redemption.

I rap about Jesus because He is the only means of redemption. Just as important and necessary is revolution. Revolution simply means a major change.

In light of all the mental bondage and vanity that we face today, change is definitely vital. True revolution comes through the renewal of the mind, discipline, faith in Jesus Christ, and action. This is my message; nothing less.

TEMPLE:

My name is Temple. I go by this name because this is what I am. I Corinthians 6:19 says: “ Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God?”

The Holy Spirit dwells within me through faith in Christ. Does filthiness and wickedness rule you? Or has the God of righteousness and holiness taken His rightful place ruling on the throne of your heart?

Stay true to God and follow the ways of Jesus. The world needs to see Christ through us before we run out of time. They need to see the power of God in us, the power that releases people from the bondage of sin.
