Bio

In 1979 in West Philadelphia, M'LiK was born into a Seventh-Day Adventist family. M'LiK was introduced to gospel music at an early age. Walter Arties, Mahalia Jackson and Whintley Phipps, to name a few, were instrumental artist in the beginning stages of his musical career.

In the 7th grade, M'LiK was introduced to gospel rap through a friend. The very first gospel rap that he heard he considered to be wack! Not being one to step down from a challenge, when asked if he could do better, M'Lik wrote his first gospel rap song (Who's The Man off of his 2003 debut albuym 'Corner of Heaven & Hell). That moment would be a major turning point in his life. That is when he officially become M'LiK (M'LiK is an acronym for My Lord Is King).

After years of struggling back and forth with the decision to do gospel or secular music, M'LiK attened Huntsville, Alabama's Oakwood College. While a freshman there in 1998, he met Minister Joseph 'Poppa Joe' Branch. There at Oakwood they teamed up and started Good Boyz Records. While in Alabama, M'LiK played for and/or opened for groups such as Dynamic Praise and Madison Mission Mass Choir. Also, he was able to meet such groups and individuals as Take 6, Virtue, Kim Burrell and Richard Smallwood.

The year 2000 brought on M'LiK's departure from Oakwood College, and what seemed to be the demise of his and Poppa Joe's partnership. While back in Maryland, M'LiK started Down With The King Entertainment, as well as his gospel hip-hop choir C.H.A.O.S. (Christians Honoring An Omnipotent Savior). Even though things seem ok, something was missing.

In 2003, M'LiK received a call from Poppa Joe that he and his family were moving back to Wilmington, DE. At this time Down With The King Entertainment had become the current Rock-Da-Truth Gospeltainment. With the word that his long lost partner was going to be back in the area, M'LiK brought Mr. Branch in as his business partner in Rock-Da-Truth Gospeltainment. This year also mark a major milestone in M'LiK's life, the release of his debut album.

Currently, M'LiK is working on his sophomore double-disc project. M'LiK has not only written and produced for himself but as well for other artist (he is currently a highly sought after producer/song writer in the Maryland, D.C., Deleware area). He produced and wrote the song 'Step In The Name of The Lord', which ended up being a #1 requested song on Power 99 in Philadelphia. His song 'Get Down' off of his album was the #1 song on Judgeme.net for 5 straight days in Sept. 2004. God has and is truely blessing. He has also held down the #1 spot on With-The-Band.com as the only Holy Hip Hop artist on the site.
