Biography

“Don’t hang with them dudes who cower and babble/the Spirit will Mes-up-a-tame-ya’ like the tower of Babel/I spit it directly street like a mouth full of gravel/so disregard if you a Saint/It ain’t you that I’m after/I’m searchin’ the masses lookin’ for captives/peepin’ his (satan) tactics/molded in Gods hands like I was named Cassius.”

Mark 2:17-And when Jesus heard it, He said to them, Those who are strong and well have no need of a physician, but those who are weak and sick; I came not to call the righteous ones to repentance, but sinners (the erring ones, and all those not free from sin).

So begins The Natural, Patch1’s confrontational and transparent 21st century lyrical epistle to the hip-hop generation. With his first CD debut The Natural, he seeks to change the outlook and views of the streets towards the Body of Believers, and cultivate a Church whose focus is not entirely on self-absorption.

With an uncanny, real-to-life style, known as the Ghost-Flow, Patch1 brings knew meaning to Holy Hip-Hop. The flow in “Studda” is both innovative and amusing at the same time. Patch1 uses a southern style to convey a message of legitimacy and keeping it real, in your day to day lifestyle. In the explosively hot track “Love ‘n’ Woe”--featuring Virtuous—this modern day “thin line between love and hate” is confronting issues about rocky relationships, which will have the listener’s complete attention. You don’t have to be married to personally feel this one! Baring himself in “Tell it All”--featuring label-mate Jey-9--this lyrical saga delivers a powerful testimony about transparency and deliverance. Representing his city and bringing awareness to the oppression of his people “Aviation”--the future anthem for Cincinnati will open your eyes to the reality of the struggles of, not just the black culture; but all people who have been subjected to bondage and tyranny.

With tracks produced by such powerhouses as A4G’s Jey-9, Theory-Hazit of Prosperous, Jada-kid and K-Drama of Platinum Tips, and featured appearances by “hot-to-death” newcomers Virtuous, B-Dangerous, Homage, label-mate Prophet, Traidmark and the soulful voice of Victoria, The Natural will electrify us musically, while inspiring us to become transparent Christians—impacting the world for the Kingdom of Christ in whatever context we find ourselves.

A graduate of Zion Temple Bible Seminary and a current student at The University of Cincinnati, Patch1—born Li’Dairious Hafford, has been devoted to sound, youth, and urban ministry since the age of 22. A servant of the non-profit organization Christ Emmanuel Christian Fellowship, he contributes his gifting to the quality and acoustics of music weekly and at special events. Ministering before hundreds, with a vast and growing following Patch1 is sure to become the Midwest’s unsigned hype.
