Biography

"...for the joy of the Lord is your strength." -Nehemiah 8:10(KJV)

Christina Grimes was born in Dallas, Texas on March 12, 1985. Being the daughter of a pastor and evangelist, Christina knew she would have a calling on her life. After hearing the first generation of the BIC Rappers, she knew gospel rap would be her ministry. At the age of 15 she joined a group by the name of ACE (Alfred, Christina, & Eric). As the group digressed, she went on to write and record songs of her own. It was then God gave her a name for herself, SowTwas, (Souljah of War With True Wrath Against Sin). SowTwas worked with many artists in the Dallas community.

Although she was beginning to breakthrough as a solo gospel rapper, God told her to return to the group formally known as ACE. She obeyed God. After graduating from DeSoto High School in 2003, she rejoined ACE and they were transformed into the Demonic Assasynz. The group saved many souls through their ministry. Their Soundclick page has had nearly 30,000 views within two years. Many of their songs has been in the top 10 of the Christian Rap Charts for Soundclick. SowTwas wrote and produced many of the tracks used by the Demonic Assasynz. After nine years of being in the Ministry, God has finally called her to release her first solo album. SowTwas' debut album, "JoyRide", will be available September, 2007. It will be Holy Ghost filled, God inspired, with some hot beats from the hottest producers in the nation.

Note from SowTwas:
A lot of people have asked me about the story behind 'JoyRide'. For me, it is a super testimony. The past two years has been the craziest roller coaster of my young life. I felt like my life was turned upside down and all my faith and strength escaped my grasp. Situations occurred in my life that I never imagined. It got so bad that I became rebellious and totally stopped going to church. I felt weak, powerless, and worthless. So I turned to alcohol and unhealthy relationships. Those things made me feel even worse. Now understand I totally stayed away from rapping during this time. I did not want to be a hypocrite, you know? I had a low self-esteem that almost caused me to quit attending Texas A&M University-Commerce. I was a totally different person who just did not care anymore. But God…One day when I was sitting in my apartment, a dusty Bible was staring at me from across the room. Reluctantly, I grabbed it and flipped the pages. After the pages settled, a highlighted verse stood out, Nehemiah 8:10, "…for the joy of the Lord is your strength". After I read that, I instantly felt the chains come off. I kept saying it over and over. After awhile, my situations started changing. I started feeling and looking differently, ya know, a hot, holy girl. Doors began to open for my family and I that revealed the true favor of God on our lives. God blessed me with more healthy relationships. And soon the ministry that I ran from caught up with me and consumed me. The first song recorded was 'Ride With Me'. That song was not just for you all, it was for me too. It truly ministers to me. My favorite line is, 'while you tripping of what you did, God done already forgot it'. His mercy is truly everlasting. My music covers a lot of aspects coming from a 'Holy Ghost Girl'. So I am thankful to share with you all my journey, my ups and downs, my 'JoyRide'.

Peace and God Bless
