Biography

PHAT CAT is a Gospel Rap artist from Sunnyside WA. Being delivered from Drugs and alcohol, PHAT CAT felt a burning desire to seek the truth in life...and turned to Jesus!

With a burning desire to reach the masses and fulfill the great commission, CAT is using his love and talent for hip hop as a tool to spread messages of hope and redemption. In 2004 he released his debut effort "Cloudy Dreams" with production from local producer Vic Zendez. The cd has done well not only at an independant level, but internationally too with 10% of his sales being to Japan! This album has kind of an old school feel and deals with heavy hitting issues such as suicide and abortion in "Every Tear". It also has strong ministry about prayer and forgiving your enemies.

With the success of his first album, PHAT CAT recorded and released his sophomore release "Behind The Mask" late 2006. This album is blessed with very talented producers such as multi-platinum producer Funk Daddy, II Tre of A-State Ent. outta Arkansas, Salty Beatz outta Los Angelas, and CROW of Bruthaz Grimm outta Portland. Also featured are very talented national artists such as K2S from the West Coast and Karusso from the East/South. This is a very hard hitting album with a generous 17 tracks to give CAT's fans a little more!

PHAT CAT has a love for the ministry end of things which includes doing jail ministry w/Prisoners For Christ out of the Seattle area. CAT has also ministered at countless different churches & youth events and has toured w/The Extreme Tour West Coast. Alongside fellow rap artist Soul The Interrogator, Phat Cat has walked the streets of Haiti and ministered, performed, and fellowhsipped in the 2nd poorest country in the world! No matter what denomination or venue...salvation through Jesus Christ is what we preach. "Music is a passion, but Jesus is the reason behind everything we do."

INTRO: (PHAT CAT & SOUL THE INTERROGATOR)
AHHH - PHAT CAT - SOUL THE INTERROGATOR - WE ALL UP IN IT – YEAH - SOLDIERS FOR CHRIST - WE AT WAR - SPIRITUAL WARFARE HOMIE - YOU READY TO RIDE – LET’S GO

VS. #1 (PHAT CAT)
STEPPED UP IN THE CLUB WITH A FIST FULLA CDS
EVERYBODY ON THE BLOCK SAID THEY WOULDN’T FEEL ME
ROLLED UP TO THE DJ TOLD HIM WE HAD TRACKS TO PLAY
PUSHED ME TO THE SIDE & TOLD ME I WAS GETTING IN THE WAY
GOSPEL RAP ARTIST & HE SAID HE COULDN’T STAND US
TIL HE PUT THE CD IN THE DECK & WENT BANANAS
COULDN’T BELIEVE THE HEAT COMING OUT THE BOX
SO I GRABBED THE MICROPHONE & STARTED RIPPIN UP THE SPOT
DON’T EVER UNDERESTIMATE THE HEART OF A SOLDIER
CAUSE WE LIVE & DIE & ALWAYS RIDE FOR JAHOVA
CALL ME PHAT CAT I GOT THE HEART OF A LION
I CAN’T PLEASE EVERYONE & I’M SICK OF TRYING
WE BRING THE FIRE LIKE ELIJAH BURNING UP OUR ENEMIES
EATING HATAZ UP LIKE GATORS AS WE FALL TO OUR KNEES
THIS IS SPIRITUAL WARFARE & WE ON THEM FRONT LINES
YO WE IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL NO TIME TO RECLINE

CHORUS

WE IN IT FOR THE RADIO THE HITS DON’T STOP
WE IN IT FOR THE RECORD STORES GIVING US A SPOT
WE IN IT FOR THE CROWDS GETTING ROWDY TONIGHT
BUT ABOVE ALL ELSE WE BE IN IT FOR CHRIST

VS. #2 (SOUL THE INTEROGATOR)
I COULD BATTLE A MILLION PHILISTINES WITH GOD ON MY SIDE
STONE TO THE DOME YOURE ALONE ON THIS RIDE
I'LL STAND LIKE A LION WHILE THE WICKED MEN HIDE
BEHIND YOUR ENVY, GREED, & JEALOUSY & PRIDE
I RIDE KEEP IT LIVE WITH THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST
AND HATERS WHO WANNA BATTLE, JUST KNOW, HE’S NOTHING NICE
KEEP ON LIVIN' IN SIN HOMIE YOUR ROLLIN THE DICE
DONT NEED A RIFLE FOR MY RIVAL MAN, A BIBLE WILL SUFFICE
I HIT EM WITH SECOND CORINTHIANS 10:4
LET EM KNOW WHAT WE USE THE WORD OF GOD FOR
TEN-FOLD FOR THE FOE HOMIE BREAKIN' THEM STRONG HOLDS
GLASS, ICE, MAD LIES, HYDRO AND BONG BOWLS
WE IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL AINT NO PASSIN US
YOU DOWN TO RIDE? CHRIST IS TAKIN ON PASSENGERS
REFUSE TO LOSE THE DEVIL NEVER GONNA MASACRE US
JESUS RAISE 'EM FROM THE DEAD LIKE LAZARUS

CHORUS

VS. #3 (PHAT CAT)
BACK IN THE DAY I WAS TRIPPIN DIPPIN IN THAT DOUBLE LIFE
BUT EVEN MY ALTER EGO GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST
MEDIA MANIPULATION HAD MY BRAIN ALL TWISTED UP
TELLING ME THINGS WERE COOL WHEN THEY WERE REALLY JACKED UP
JUST LIKE THE ISRAELITES WORSHIPPING THE GOLDEN CALF
TOO MANY WORSHIP SEX, MONEY & THESE PLATINUM PLAQUES
WE GOT TO TRY & SEPARATE OURSELVES FROM THE WICKED
NO AMOUNT OF MONEY CAN PURCHASE US A TICKET
GOT TO LIVE LIFE RIGHT TO SECURE A PLACE IN HEAVEN
TURN THE BIBLE TO THE BOOK OF PSALMS 37
THE FATE OF THE SINNERS & REWARD OF THE JUST
LAY IN THE HANDS OF THE LORD OUR GOD WHERE TRUST IS A MUST
BUT SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE JOB A GOOD MAN UNDER ATTACK
GOD PUTS ME TO THE TEST JUST TO SEE HOW I’LL REACT
YOU CAN TELL MY CLOTHES ARE WORN & TORN
FROM LIVING THROUGH THESE STORMS
YO I DIED TO MYSELF A NEW CREATION WAS BORN
PEOPLE SAY I SAY JESUS TOO MUCH WHEN I RAP
BUT I DON’T WANT TO GET CONFUSED WITH THESE SECULAR CATS
SOUL THE INTEROGATOR WITH THE PHAT CAT
YO WE IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL & QUICK TO REACT

VS. #1
SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE SOMETHING'S EATIN ME UP INSIDE
LIKE A CUT THAT GOT RIPPED OPEN WIDE
I GOTTA GET A GRIP AND SO I TRY & TRY
I FEEL LIKE JEKYL & HYDE I FEEL MY BRAIN IS FRIED
I KNOW IT’S JUST BUILDING UP FROM THE DAILY STRESS
EVERY CORNER THAT I TURN I SEEM TO FACE ANOTHER TEST
WILL I EVER MEET THESE HIGH EXPECTATIONS
CAN I WALK AWAY WITH NO HESITATION
SOMETIMES I DON’T KNOW JUST WHAT TO DO
SO I’M RESTING ALL MY FAITH IN YOU
SO TAKE MY HAND & CARRY ME TODAY
I WISH THAT I COULD SPREAD MY WINGS & FLY AWAY

CHORUS #1 (TERRYL GREG)
FEELING WEAKER I CAN HARDLY BREATH
I FALL ON MY KNEES AGAIN
I WANT TO FLY AWAY BUT I HAVE TO STAY
I AM CHAINED DOWN ONCE AGAIN
FROM MY OWN DISCUSTING SIN
I WANT TO FLY AWAY…FLY AWAY

DUDE, YOU GOT SOME ROCK?! (JEFF)

(CAT) I DON’T WANNA FEEL HOW I FEEL BUT IT’S REAL
LIKE I’M ON DEATH ROW EATING MY LAST MEAL
I TRIED TO OUTRUN MY PROBLEMS BUT I FELL TO MY KNEES
& NOW I’M FORCED TO FACE ALL MY INIQUITIES!!!
DO YOU EVER FEEL THE BURDEN’S TOO MUCH TO BEAR
LIKE SOMETHING HAPPENED THAT DOESN’T REALLY SEEM FAIR
THE WALLS ARE CLOSING IN YOU’RE FORCED TO LOOK WITHIN
& NOW IT’S TIME TO SEPARATE THE BOYS FROM THE MEN
THERE COMES A TIME WHEN YOU FIND OUT WHAT YOU’RE MADE OF
CAN YOU KEEP PRESSIN ON WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE
BEFORE I LOSE CONTROL I GOTTA LET IT GO
PLEASE LORD PURIFY MY SINFUL SOUL
I MUST REPENT FOR ALL OF MY SINS
FOR ALL I’VE DONE & ALL THAT I’VE BEEN
SO MUCH PRESSURE ON MY SHOULDERS FROM DAY TO DAY
MY MIND GOES TO ANOTHER PLACE AS I FLY AWAY

CHORUS #2 (TERRYL GREG)

BRIDGE:
LORD I SOMETIMES I WISH THAT I COULD JUST GO INTO ANOTHER PLACE
RUN AWAY JUST FLY AWAY
AWAAAYYY….AHHH….AHHHH…AWAY….
I WISH THAT I COULD FLY AWAY TO A BETTER DAY
I WISH THAT I COULD GET AWAY

I HIT MY KNEES & I SEEK REDEMTION AT THE CROSS
I KNOW MY SINS ARE CAST AWAY BUT MY MIND FEELS LOST
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE WAY THAT I FEEL TODAY
SOMETIMES I WISH THAT I COULD SPREAD MY WINGS & FLY

FEELING WEAKER I CAN HARDLY BREATH
I FALL ON MY KNEES AGAIN
I WANT TO FLY AWAY BUT I HAVE TO STAY
I AM CHAINED DOWN ONCE AGAIN FROM MY OWN DISCUSTING SIN
I WANT TO FLY AWAY FLY AWAY

I SEE A LAMB & A WOLF FIGHTING OVER ME
AS I FALL INTO YOUR ARMS FATHER SET ME FREE
I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO & SO I TURN TO YOU
WITH THE FAITH AND THE HOPE THAT YOU WILL PULL ME THROUGH
I’M JUST RUNNIN-RUNNIN-RUNNIN TOWARD A BRIGHTER DAY
SOMETIMES I WISH THAT I SPREAD MY WINGS AND FLY AWAY

SCREAMING (MARTY DAVIS)
FLY AWAAAYYY!!!
I WANT TO FLY AWAAAYYYY!!!
WATCH ME FLY AWAAAYYYY!!!
WATCH ME FLY AWAY!

SERENITY

Written By: Chad Turley (PHAT CAT)

SERENTIY PRAYER:
GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS THAT I CANNOT CHANGE
THE COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS THAT I CAN
& THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE

VS. #1
ANOTHER BRIGHT & SHINY DAY ROLLIN DOWN THE AVENUE
BREATH IN THE FRESH AIR EVERY DAY IS BRAND NEW
ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER AS I TAKE 12 STEPS
TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE PROMISES ARE KEPT
REMINISCING ON A TIME WHEN I THOUGHT I WAS FINE
VISIONS OF A PERFECT LIFE CLOGGING UP MY MIND
MY FEET WOULD HIT THE STREET IN MY A-DI-DAS (ADIDAS)
BUT BEFORE YOU KNEW IT I WAS DRIVING THEM CARS
ALL I NEEDED IN MY HAND WAS ONE MIC LIKE NAS
IT’S A RUSH TO HEAR THE CROWDS WITH THE OOHS & THE AHHS
WITH THE EMPTINESS INSIDE I FELT I ALREADY DIED
BEHIND THE MASK OF ADDICTIONS I WOULD RUN & HIDE
LIKE K2S SAID AFTER THE RAIN
COMES A BRIGHT & SHINY DAY SO GET READY FOR CHANGE
SOMETIMES I CAN FEEL A MOMENT OF PERFECT PEACE
THANK YOU LORD FOR EVERY SECOND OF SERENITY

VS. #2
I WAS POWERLESS ADDICTION GOT A HOLD OF ME
BUT A HIGHER ENTITY RESTORED MY SANITY
THEY SAID TO BELIEVE INA HIGHER POWER
AINT NOTHING HIGHER THAN JESUS THE MESSIAH
I ADMITTED TO MYSELF TO MY GOD & MY PEERS
THE NATURE OF MY WRONGS THROUGH REMORSEFUL TEARS
ENTIRELY READY TO HAVE GOD STEP IN
HUMBLY CAME FORTH & ASKED FORGIVNES FOR MY SINS
STARTED MAKING AMENDS TO ALL MY ENEMIES & FRIENDS
FOR ALL THAT I’VE DONE & ALL THAT I’VE BEEN
I CONTINUE TO CHECK MYSELF WHEN I’M WRONG I ADMIT IT
PUT A DRINK IN FRONT OF ME BEST BELIEVE I’LL RESIST IT
I CAN’T LIE SOMETIMES I MISS THE PARTY LIFE
NOT A CARE IN THE WORLD HAVING FUN ALL NIGHT
BUT I ALSO REMEMBER ALL THE NEGATIVITY
& I’LL NEVER TRADE IT IN FOR MY SERENITY

VS. #3
I LOVE LIVING IN THIS VALLEY & I’LL TELL YOU THE REASON
IT’S SO REFRESHING GOING THROUGH THE 4 SEASONS
WINTER TIME & YOU CAN SEE THE SNOW DROP
PICTURE PERFECT SNOW CAPPED MOUNTAIN TOPS
THEN THE SPRING ROLLS IN & EVERYTHING IS NEW
BREATH IN THE FRESH AIR FEEL THE MORNING DEW
SUMMERTIME LOWRIDIN TIME TO DROP THE TOP
YOU CAN HEAR THE SYSTEM POP COMING DOWN THE BLOCK
YOU CAN SMELL THE BBQ FROM A MILE AWAY
& HEAR THE SPLASHIN FROM THE POOLS WHERE THE CHILDREN PLAY
THEN THE FALL TIME COMES & IT’S TIME TO RELAX
THE TEMPERATURE DROPS & WE CAN ALL KICK BACK
RAKING UP THE LEAVES WATCH THE KIDS JUMP IN
OOOHH I LOVE THE SMALL TOWN THAT I LIVE IN
I GOT TO THANK THE LORD ABOVE FOR BLESSING ME
WITH EVERY LITTLE MOMENT OF TRUE SERENITY

SOULJAHZ OF THA LIGHT

Written By: Chad Turley

SOULJAHZ OF THA LIGHT

INTRO: ENTER INTO THE WORLD OF SPIRITUAL THINKING
WHERE OUR REALITY IS CHRIST CENTERED LIVING
NOT TO BE HELD CAPTIVE BY THE BONDAGE OF SIN
BUT TO HOLD CHRIST IN THE CENTER WHERE THE FREEDOM BEGINS
JESUS SAID EVERYONE WHO ACKNOWLEDGES ME BEFORE OTHERS
THE SON OF MAN WILL ACKNOWLEDGE BEFORE THE ANGELS OF GOD
BUT WHOEVER DENIES ME WILL BE DENIED BEFORE THE ANGELS OF GOD

VS. #1
THE DEVIL’S SEARCHIN OUT HIS VICTIMS LIKE A RAVENOUS WOLF
VICIOUS ATTACKIN CHRISTIANS TRYING TO WIN OVER SOULS
IN AMERICA WE’RE FREE TO WORSHIP AS WE PLEASE
PICK THE CHURCH OF OUR CHOICE & WORSHIP DOWN ON BENDED KNEE
ALL’S WE REALLY HAVE TO DO IS LIVE FOR OUR FAITH
BUT WE CAN’T SEEM TO GET THAT RIGHT DAY BY DAY
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF SOMEONE STUCK THE CHROME TO YOUR DOME
DENY OR DIE WOULD YOU STILL STAND BOLD
IT’S EASY TO SAY YOU’D NEVER DENY CHRIST
PETER THOUGHT THE SAME THING UNTIL THE COCK CROWED TWICE
PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE WORLD GETTING BEATIN SOME DIE
CAUSE WHEN FACED WITH THE CHOICE THEY REFUSE TO DENY
SO LET THE SAINTS MARCH IN & WATCH THE ANGELS FLY
FOLLOW THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD ALL THE WAY TO THE SKY
GOD’S CALLING UP THE DRAFT TO JOIN THE GOOD FIGHT
CAUSE WE’RE KNIGHTS OF THE KINGDOM & WE’RE READY TO RIDE

CHORUS (CROWD : PHAT CAT, SMOOTH, ARKO, SOUL)

WE THROW OUR FIST UP IN THE AIR
CAUSE WE LIVE OUR LIVES FOR CHRIST
WE THROW OUR FIST UP IN THE AIR
CAUSE WE DOWN TO DIE FOR CHRIST
WE THROW OUR FIST UP IN THE AIR
WE WALK BY FAITH & NOT BY SIGHT
WE THROW OUR FIST UP IN THE AIR
BECAUSE WE SOULJAHZ OF THE LIGHT
SO THROW YOUR FIST UP IN THE AIR
IF YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR CHRIST
THROW YOUR FIST UP IN THE AIR
IF YOU’RE DOWN TO DIE FOR CHRIST
THROW YOUR FIST UP IN THE AIR
IF YOU WALK BY FAITH & NOT BY SIGHT
THROW YOUR FIST UP IN THE AIR
IF YOU A SOULJAHZ OF THA LIGHT

VS. #2
THE FIRST MARTYR MAY HAVE BEEN STEPHEN YES I AGREE
BUT THE GREATEST SACRIFICE HUNG FROM A BLOODY TREE
A CAT WIT 9 TAILS TAKING CHUNKS OFF HIS FLESH
THIS WASN’T HOLLYWOOD BUT GOD MANIFEST IN THE FLESH
NO MERE MORTAL MAN COULD’VE WITHSTOOD THAT PAIN
UNLESS THE POWER OF GOD WAS RUNNING THROUGH THEIR VEINS
ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS DENY HE WAS THE ONE
THE KING OF THE JEWS GOD’S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON
HE COULD’VE CALLED LEGIONS OF ANGELS TO CARRY HIM DOWN
HE COULD’VE BEEN SPORTIN JEWELS INSTEAD OF THORNS IN THE CROWN
HE SWEAT BLOOD IN GETSEMANY BUT PRESSED THROUGH THE FEAR
& WILLINGLY ENDOURED PAIN EVEN WHEN DEATH WAS NEAR
HE WAS LOVED BY MANY BUT STILL HATED BY A FEW
JESUS FREAKS AROUND THE WORLD ARE STILL GOING THROUGH
A LOT OF PAIN A LOT OF TORTURE MANY SUFFER & DIE
BECAUSE THE PRESCIOUS NAME OF JESUS THEY REFUSE TO DENY

CHORUS

EVEN IF YOU SHOULD SUFFER FOR RIGHTEOUSNES SAKE
YOU ARE BLESSED SO DON’T BE TERRIFIED OR AFRAID
PROPHETS BEFORE YOU WERE PERSECUTED TOO
REJOICE & BE GLAD THE REWARD WILL BE HUGE
DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE ONES WHO MURDER - THROW US IN JAIL
BUT BE AFRAID OF THE ONE WHO CAN CAST US IN HELL
SO IF ANY MAN TODAY IS FAINT HEARTED OR AFRAID
LET HIM GO HOME & MAKE WAY FOR THE BRAVE
RUSHING INTO BATTLE FIGHTING FOR THE DIVINE
FOR THE FIRST TIME THERE’S MEANING IN THIS LIFE OF MINE
JUST LIKE GIDEON MAN I’M READY TO FIGHT
SOLDIERS ON THE BATTLEFIELD 10,000 IN FLIGHT
ALL THE PAIN ALL THE BLOOD ALL THE SACRIFICE
WILL BE WORTH IT IN THE END WHEN WE REACH PARADISE
I GOT CHRIST & CHRIST LIKE PEOPLE ALL AROUND ME
ANGELS THAT SURROUND ME & SAINTS THAT ARE DOWN WITH ME

CHORUS

(SAM & PHAT CAT)
DENY - WE WON'T - DENY - WE WON'T - DENY - WE WON'T!

REMAIN FAITHFUL UNTIL DEATH & YOU WILL RECEIVE THE CROWN OF LIFE. IT IS BETTER TO SUFFER FOR DOING GOOD THAN DOING EVIL, IF THAT BE THE WILL OF GOD. ALIVE I AM CHRIST’S MESSENGER, DEAD I AM HIS BOUNTY. LIFE VERSES MORE LIFE? I CAN’T LOSE. ALL MY SOULJAHZ…MOUNT UP!

DENY - WE WON'T - DENY - WE WON'T - DENY - WE WON'T - DENY - WE WON'T DENY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
