Marcullus L. Lewis born July 12, 1969 in Flint, Michigan now residing in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife Rhondala and children. He has been writing, rapping and producing hip-hop music since 1983. Music has been a very intricate part of his life. Growing up at a time when hip-hop music was beginning to take off and flourish was exciting to him. Hip-hop was fresh, it was new, it was bold, it was what he wanted to do with his life. He was raised in the church from a child but at age 17 he went his own way. He begin to live a dysfunctional lifestyle filled with crime and, drugs that almost led to him being locked up for 1 year to life in prison.

By the grace of God in the year 2000 he entered back into the Lords rest living whole hearted for him since that day. Although he has not always glorified God with his talent he is truly grateful for a second chance to make a difference in the world. He has been blessed to come on the scene and take music by storm with a unique style and sound that many people have grown to love. Recognizing that he could do something positive with his musical gift he has chosen to be effective in bringing about change in the community, (building it up instead of tearing it down).

His lyrics are directed towards the young and old alike addressing everyday issues that affect our lives in a negative way. As God has chosen him to be a mouthpiece for him in this day and age he has vowed to stay committed to the mission to let the world know that there is a better way, an alternate way, the true way (JESUS, THE CHRIST). He has traveled evangelically with Christlike Flavor Ministries using creative evangelism to promote positive lyrics.
