Biography

Yes, Yes, I have finally answered my calling to preach the uncompromising Gospel. I am very ecited that God has chose and trust me to bring the world His word. I've been running, like Jonah, for a long time from my call, but I thank God he didn't allow a tragedy to happen to get my attention. I have spent my music life in the secular world and have rocked 100's of shows with alot of national acts. People like George Clinton, KRS 1, Roots Crew, Keek Da Sneak, E-40, Junior " One Blood" Reed, Damien Marly, Radio Active, Planet Asia, Afu Ra, Inspect Da Deck, The Team, The Grouch, Wisdom, Doey Rock, Lyrics Born, Afro Man, Dilated Peoples, Front Line, Ozomatli and many more. My live show experiance have been a blast. But God is who I need to give my life to and I need to walk in His purpose for me. God has been good to me and I refuse to not give Him all that He deserve. I find joy in kingdom building and pray that all my family and friends as well as anyone else who's unsaved, will become saved through the examples that I set. I've experienced so much in my 30 years on earth, from firefighting, pro baseball with the Angels, college div.1 basketball, emt certified, mental health counselor, starting a non- profit called Path to Purpose with my wife, barber and many more experiances. But aaaaaall that so I can be a well rounded preacher for God. As I raise my family ( boy & girl+ wife) and be a daddy and husband, I also strive to be one of the most pwerful and impactful men of God to ever walk this earth in our time! Again God is Good! If you don't know Him, it's time to give Him a try. I ask that you pray with me as we travel this journey called life and I'll be praying for you! Last thing, God is not just something out there, He is real! To my so called friends, any questions, just ask! But I know when you change or try to really serve GOD most people run from you!!!Why I don't know, but I'm starting not to care!When you change for the better thats when you see who your true friends are! ENJOY!!!!I'm still Zealous but just saying I can't keep ignoring the truth( going thru a real big transition) because without the full and real truth everything else is irrelevant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This voice is getting louder than the worlds voice, I don't know about you, but I know better, when things don't go how you want them over and over and over, wake up, there's a reason, don't settle cuz time's not!!!!!!!!!!!!My life is in transition and when I get to my true destination I'll be a new man! I'm from the streets of East Oakland, Ca. and was born May 14, 1977.Life to me is about fulfilling your purpose and I trully believe that all of our purpose has to do with serving ( giving) with the best of our abilities to make a difference in others lives which in turn we will benefit and get our needs and wishes met by God. There's things that the world make us believe we want and need and supposed to have but it's way more to it than a "paper chase".We face a strong daily battle of spiritual and physical temptations and lots of the THINGS we're focused on have us even more septibal to giving in to these temptations. My true belief is that God wants us to feed our spirit more than our flesh because if the flesh is our compass it will lead us all to a dead-in. Yes, I'm just like everyone else when it comes to sin and temptation but the one thing I do fear and respect to the fullest is GOD and his plan for me.I done smoked, drank, dated enough women and partied enough. I done tried doing it my way and my way don't get me fulfilled.To get all that I want, need and dream of will be difficult without the help of GOD who created me and knows my destiny better than I do.He has great benefits but we gotta serve him. God has a plan for each and every last one of us and thats why despite our sinful ways he has us still breathing. His plan will get us all our heart desires and way more than what we could imagine. The biggest difference in his plan and our plan, we will be much more well rounded folks with a spiritual strength and eye that can't nobody destroy.I was a hip hop mc and my music was cauncious, I can't help it! BUT! That genre of music was still keeping me in places that make it that much harder to grow spiritually (clubs, bars, away from family and connected to folks that has alternative motives). It's sooooo much fun rock'n the crowd and seeing the smiles on peoples faces and getting a strong dose of ego boost but how much am I making a difference performing to a crowd of altered minded folks, in lustful situations,including myself ( not perfect)?I feel that that same message can have the full focus of GOD in it which means a more fulfilled life, and the impact on people will be much more powerful. Meaning when you do it GODS way, there's always change occuring, there's always a crowd, the impact is more dynamic ( in clubs some promoters don't promote,groupies destracting you, don't take care of ya, and the list goes on and on of th
