"Reviewer: Duss Rodgers"

With excellent production and nicely arranged beats The Psalmist offers lyrical diversity with a positive twist. The bumpin' beats are exactly what the top down Jeeps are callin' for. Summertime jams and all that... Reminiscent of Big Pun and Fat Joe, the Psalmist is definitely ready to bust on to the Hip-Hop scene and will definitely have some heads spinnin'! All you cats out there should definitely take some lessons on how it can and should be done. With positivity and smooth flows one can still rock the set and spread love simultaneously. Of the tracks I had the opportunity to eavesdrop on "Free", "Ghetto Child", and "Once Again" were definitely some of the better produced and arranged tracks I've had the pleasure to hear this year. Representing Corona, New York with authority, the Psalmist would make any positive Hip-Hop head believe again...

The Psalmist can definitely make a serious impact in this industry, and I expect with some more time we'll be seeing him in general rotation throughout North America. One would definitely wonder why we haven't heard of him before? Well we have now, and believe me the young Cats on the set best check themselves...

"Mount Hope Baptist Church of Faith"

Bro. Psalmist,

Please accept this thanks for the excellent performance you and all the other gospel
rap artists provided for our church Youth Rally this past April. Everyone in
attendance was blessed by the way each of you ministered through your art.

The style of Gospel Rap you all presented serves as a welcome alternative to
negative Rap lyrics which bombards our young people today through audio / visual
media. While I am not a fan of all gospel rap music, I do not hesitate in loaning my
endorsement to your work.

Please be encouraged to keep lifting up the name of Jesus Christ, and battling for
the minds and hearts of young people everywhere.

May God continue to richly bless all of you.

In the Lord's Service,

Bishop Richard Coates, Pastor
Mount Hope Baptist Church of Faith

"Director of Youth Ministries"

I was privileged to have “Fear of the Drum Records” and “Know me by my Fruits Music Ministry” perform at my church on April 1, 2005.

With catchy rhymes and inspirational lyrics, Philly-Native, The Psalmist, and Judah Priest have proven themselves to be men after God’s own heart. These rappers know what it takes to get the crowd moving and dance for the Lord.

I recommend this Christian rap group to any organization that needs to be uplifted. With energy and excitement, these artists will blow you away!

"Messiah College Show Review"

"MC Psalmist is a Queens native Messiah graduate currently residing in Philly. Though still unable to quit his day job, his ministry is a major part of his life. He was the most lyrically advanced, with complex rhymes and punchlines on a par with more successful hip-hop artists."

MC Psalmist aka Mr. Church Gritty has been a staple in the gospel rap industry for over 12 years. He’s dedicated to seeing a Romans 12:1-2 relationship with God restored amongst His people (both in the church building and outside) by any means necessary. To combat the negativity so predominantly infused with the radio airways and the "too holy" versions of Christian rap that currently exist, MC Psalmist has adopted the alter-ego of Mr. Church Gritty: a straight shooting, slang talking, no nonsense Christian that speaks on everything he sees.

Hailing from Philadelphia – the City of Brotherly Love – MC Psalmist is a co-founder of the United Coalition of Urban Ministers. Along with this important legacy, he has:

-won Hip Hop song of the Year in the 2011 John Lennon Songwriting Contest
-released 6 albums
-released 13 mixtapes
-produced over 500 beats for others
-pushed 25,000+ units out of his trunk with no formal distribution support.

He has seen the lives of thousands of people transformed through the Gospel message and is passionate about the work that needs to be done in the mission field of Hip Hop Culture.

MC Psalmist has been privileged to have opened for acts as: The Clark Sisters * Da Truth * Crossmovement * Slipknot * Philmont * R-Swift * Jehovah's Chosen

He was invited personally to Joel Olsteen's opening service in the former Houston Rocket's stadium and multiple Christian music festivals, both as a performer and a host.

One of the most competitive music contests in the world is The John Lennon Song Writing Contest, which is open to both amateur and professional songwriters. In 2011, Round 1 of the category was taken by the song “Have Plenty” by Red Baron and Round 2 was won by the song entitled “First Love” by MC Psalmist , whose own production company, 3Fifths Multimedia, also produced the Round 1 winning song!
