Radical Disciples Using Gifts, Rather Than Fists! Slapping a devil near you....

Biography

Reason for group getting together:
We officially got together in late 2002, early 2003. We were all members of the United States Air Force, stationed at the same base, and members of the same church-Victory Life Christian Ministries, founded by Pastors Kim & Angela Belle. Under the direction of our pastors New Covenant was born. Shoutouts to J. Daniels A.K.A. “J Roc”, J. Walker A.K.A. “Jay Walk”, A. Guillory A.K.A. “Kinfolk” and J. King A.KA. “King Quality”, who were a part of New Covenant at the “grassroots” level.

With similar testimonies, it was soon discovered why we were brought together. We all shared the same passion for "running the streets", now we all share the same "passion" for Christ and his word.

Matthew 28:19-20 commands that we teach the word of God and that’s exactly what we're doing. Without COMPROMISE! We live in a world that feeds off of negativity and death but there is HOPE. With the media plagued with violence and lust of in all forms, we as radical Christians stand with our peers who are dedicated to a lifestyle that portrays Christ in our actions, words and music.

The Mission: Soul Purpose

To magnify His name! Win souls for The Kingdom!
Mark 16:15 says, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. This is our calling as a believer in the body of Christ. We believe Christ died and was raised by the power of the Holy Spirit. We loyally await his glorious return. We consider this journey as the Pilgrimage to the expected end, Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Vision:

To teach the word of God to our generation through hip-hop in a manner that sparks the fire for uncompromised salvation. We love Christ and love music; and are charged with preaching the HOPE the spirit placed on the inside of us without fear or condemnation of reprisal.

Hip-Hop has been used as a major means of distorting Truth and a perpetuator of pestilence...

BUT there is still HOPE in this world!

WORD + BEATS = HOPE RAP

Lyrics

Nothing

Written By: Marcus Mason & Giselle Jasmin

HooK:
R&B why you sing so hard for nothing?
Heavy Metal why you scream so hard for nothing?
Hip Hop why you flow so hard for Nothing?
When Jesus died on the cross for nothing, BUT U!!!!
(repeat)

Regal verse1:
I saw a billboard that said that we all got AIDS,
It's amazing what man choose to glamorize these days,
But the through remains Jesus,
he died for that too,
Cancer, herpes, Depression, anything that ails you,
Alcohol, Crack, Meth man any addiction,
Loving Jesus, he wipes away eternal affliction,
Cause whether you rich or poor, sin don't discriminate but with the answer,
It's never too late to elevate,
to his state of mind,
Like having site though you blind,
or being blind to the world seeing your return to victory,
and that's how it should be,
being in this world but not part of the family,
because heaven is your home you get a testimony,
how u were snatched out the fire,
to endure like Jeremiah, conquering evil like Josiah cause His righteousness you admire,
letting go of this world should be nothing to you to get you higher...up

HooK:
R&B why you sing so hard for nothing?
Heavy Metal why you scream so hard for nothing?
Hip Hop why you flow so hard for Nothing?
When Jesus died on the cross for nothing, BUT U!!!!
(repeat)

Marcus verse2:
Why you cats talk trash for nothing?
Your roll models got little boys and girls smoking grass for nothing,
So stop fronting like it ain't you responsibility,
"I ain't responsible for your lives but please cop my CD",
Why you shaking your behind for nothing?
Realize that these guys undress you with their eyes,
and besides, just be on the sidelines,
While he finds a girl that make him wait, but wait, he won't respect you when he hits it on a date,
Mistake, but Jesus died so dry your eyes cause when he rose again you became a champion over sin.
Fellas find your purpose, I know you a thug on the surface but deep within you scared and lonely feeling like your life is worthless, churches got a tendency to scare you away, with the music these days devil is daring you to stay, in bondage, please stop the nonsense and come back home, leave your problems at his feet and take your position near his throne.

HooK:
R&B why you sing so hard for nothing?
Heavy Metal why you scream so hard for nothing?
Hip Hop why you flow so hard for Nothing?
When Jesus died on the cross for nothing, BUT U!!!!
(repeat)

M & R verse3:
It's kinda sad but these days all you hear is trash,
and it makes me mad when they claim to be representing my dad, see God,
Wants to stand out be different from the rest, but you compromise your faith to sell a record you show your breast and yes, sex sells but is it worth the hell to rebell against everything you believe forget what he did on that tree? Please you don't have to go to jail just to be the man; it takes a man to claim on the Rock Jesus Christ that stand...
Cause it's you that I check for,
you that I cut for,
I promise you these words were meant for you,
The devil's got a plan to annihilate you,
and having you burning in a pit that wasn't meant for you,
That's why he mesmerize the eyes,
flood you with subliminal lies,
got you speaking negative words and your blessings they die,
through secular music, that don't bless nobody but curse,
singing bout lust murder and greed ain't nothing for the soul but the hearse!

HooK:
R&B why you sing so hard for nothing?
Heavy Metal why you scream so hard for nothing?
Hip Hop why you flow so hard for Nothing?
When Jesus died on the cross for nothing, BUT U!!!!

2 Step

Written By: Marcus & Regal

Hook:
Aint nothing but the same ole 2 Step
(Repeated)

Marcus verse1:
This is for clubs, this one makes you wanna get up out of your seat, and show some love whether lady or thug, this is a-nointed beats now, telling who messing with, this is new covenant now, tell me how you testing it,
don't get me wrong you hear the words in this song,
We just trying to get my dance on praising the Lord,
finally a joint that ain't nasty full of videos hoes that's trashy, but this is rated G like Scooby and Daphne, what's the haps B?
We all Christians here, you all up in the club here and Christians here,
We taking over the world son, didn't you hear? KP is holding altar calls up the rear, this year, we taking the word to wherever you are, whether it be in the bar you getting saved wouldn't that be bizarre? Play this in your car, Cadillac or your Benz; you got your hands in the air yelling Jesus loves you out your window...

Hook:
Aint nothing but the same ole 2 Step
(repeated)

Regal verse 2:
Used to, touch glasses,
now we touch gloves with da,
sin masters,
heated off the flames off them,
new pastors,
breathing new life through this music it's ministry,
anything else is anti,
theocracy a fabric of the anarchy,
a nation raised by the beast 2 double 0 6 A.D.,
It's crazy,
We can't scream for God but scream for JZ?
So when we ask yall to praise,
go head and just act a fool instead of faking when you singing bout praise is what I do,
But I came here to bless,
die to your flesh, this is an order it's either, roasting with heathens or toasting with martyrs,
it's a war between survivors and warriors, and with just you and God, the victory is oh so glorious,
if you love hate and love sin sit down and shut up, but if you love God stop fronting on him just give it up for what!

Hook:
Aint nothing but the same ole 2 Step
(repeated)

Marcus and Regal verse 3:
In the world, all you hear is JZ look alikes, the only Jehovah I want to be like is Christ,
Are you of, mice or men? Life or Sin? the price to win, was paid by his blood so your life could begin,
Now that's something worth dancing for praising for,
especially you standing in front of your mansion door, so put your hands in the sky, cause our savior didn't die but he rose, he choose to give his life for you and I..
Yo, not selassie, he's my Adonai,
as I kiss this world goodbye my inhibitions die,
now I'm part of the fam, kinfolk, heir to all things, joint heir with Jesus, Jehovah, the king and if there's one thing I know, Praise destroys the enemy cap-tivity and all negativity,
so you could scream or say UHHHH
like Master P,
One God 2 Step for the Majesty yuh heard...
