Biography

Some people are born to follow, others are born to lead. In an industry plagued with so many negative images of drugs, sex, and violence, rapper and music consultant Richard Dauphin stands out as a light in the midst of darkness. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Richard was greatly influenced by music and its profound effect it had on people. He states that, "Music is a universal language that can be understood by anyone regardless of religious, social and ethnic background." What sets Richard apart from most artists in the industry is his ability to convey an introspective glance into the mind and hearts of listeners. He is a prophetic voice crying out to a people searching for purpose, love and hope. Understanding his platform and his audience, Richard, along with manager Mekah Nizum (pronounced Mecca Ni-zum) in 2005 launched their own independent record label dubbed Holyfire Productionz. Their goal is to transform the face of the music industry by bringing inspiration message back into the marketplace. When asked about Holyfire, Richard stands on the biblical verse from the book of Romans 8:31 which reads, " If GOD be for us, who can be against us." Richard has been currently creating a buzz in the New York area where he has performed in numerous venues including the world famous Apollo Theater on April 25th. He has also been interviewed by the nationally recognized newspaper The New York Times in the September 13th issue about his involvement in the Holy Hip Hop movement. Richard is currently performing all across the east coast at numerous colleges, music conferences and outdoor festivals. The sky is the the limit for this Brooklyn born MC who is truly a diamond in the rough and a definite force to be reckoned with in the music industry.

Can't Make It Stop

Written By: Richard Dauphin

CAN'T MAKE IT STOP
Verse 1
Yo I couldn't in my wildest dreams imagine flowing for the Lord/I was into battle raps/ Punchlines in metaphores/ I wasn't busting gunz or trying to thug/ I would simply brag about how nice I was/ I loved freestyling with other mc's/ Just so I could show them that they were no way nicer then me/You couldn't tell me I couldn't get deal/ And you couldn't tell me my cd wouldn't sell like 5 mill/ I was gassed/ But I aint' here braggin bout my past/ But people look at me now/ But they don't even know the half/ So I gotta let you know/ The why now I flow/ 1 its not for the money/ 2 its not for the show/ But the fact is he died and he rose/And since I answered the call than I got to be bold/ I can't fold/ But even though I'm a little out of control listen cuz/
Verse 2
I aint trying to be on the mic politically correct/ But just here Uh I'm rocking 4 the Lord till the day of my death/ I can't stop/ I can't help it/ His word is all up in me/ To those who hate da truth pardon me yall please forgive me/ Who would have thought/ I'd be hear today/ A partaker of his grace/ For the sake of the faith/ See I'm running this race/ Though some people probably gon' hate/ I can't hesitate/ To say/ What I got to say/Cuz like sheep/ We all have gone astray from sheperd/ Understand I'm just simply vessle/ Here conveying his message/ This more than just a record/ This is my testimony / I gotta give him the glory/ After all he's done for me/ This only part of the my story so stay tuned/ I'm sold out to the Lord/ Yo gotta stay true/ Stay true/ Its all about /


Verse 3
This here is what I call street slang holy spiritual spiritual arson/ Authored by the Holy Ghost and me Richard Dauphin/That's why I break free/Cuz I could only be me and not what this industry want me to be/ Understand I only rap to set the captives free/ That's my/ Call and commision/And I'm a man on a mission/ Shedding to those living in the valley of decision/ Its not for da fame/ Or the applause of fans/ So when Im on the yo I'm on the mic just baring my cross fam/ While men chase after money bling/ A man life dosen't consist of the abundance of things/ Well !!!!!!/And I care less if people aint feeling this/Just understand I just a voice crying out in the wilderness/Oh I feel my help coming on/I'm in the zone/ Yo his words are like fire shut up in my bones/And Yo

CHRIST FOR THE CRISIS

Written By: Richard Dauphin & The Holy Ghost

We live in a day and age/Where people are so stuck in their ways/And go through life like/Mice in a maze/Caught up in the hype of the media/And the poison they feeding us/Leading us down/ that broad way of destruction/The enemy straight plays us like puppets on a sting/As we promote the doctrines of demons through songs that we sing/So we view the truth as a lie and what's really a lie as truth/And on the real/ whose truth is absolute / Selah/ Meditate before u sleep for u sleep a night/Hope you see the light bulb/And then think twice before sin/Amen/ Cruz mankind/Is far from righteous/Look at abortion/How could u put a price/ On a life that priceless/When u can't even fathom the value of what life is/Look at how many teen mothers got to strip to pay for diapers/Cuz they baby daddy/doing 25 to life up in Rikers/
WE NEED CHRIST FOR THE CRISIS

Cuz there's nothing but rioteous/ Living/ and Sinning/Since the fall in the book of beginning/Where we forfeited all of our and our dominion/And now living slaves and citizen of this modern Babylonian system/ totally ignorant of our imprisonment/ And in these perilous times/Where man is spiritually blind/To the Heavenly Fathers glory divine/ see the scriptures depict that in these last days/ men will be lovers of the rather then lovers of God/Come on this aint odd/ But obvious/ and The fact that we’re so far gone really ai’nt odd but obvious/ there’s so many religions finding God/ is Like where's Waldo/When the truth laid bear in the Gospels/ But how do we break free/ How do we find liberty/When we were born and shaped in iniquity/We’re in the last days and in the final hour/And most saints just have a form of Godliness but no power/ And as a flower fades/ All thats in the world will soon pass away/Will you be saved or cast away/Their two choices Heaven or that other place/And Jesus Christ is the only escape
