It was Daron’s older brother David that introduced him to hip-hop. David was rapping in the early eighties as a teenager in high school, while Daron was still in elementary school. Every chance he received Daron would join his brother listening to early rap pioneers on WBLS (when it came in clear).

Later Daron began his own journey into the road of hip-hop. He started building his own music collection by recording a weekly rap show in the Philadelphia area, Street Beat. By middle school Daron was freestyling with some of his friends.

In high school Daron began battling other rappers during lunch time cypha sessions and began developing a name for himself. It was during these final years in high school that Daron began to develop a true relationship with God. He began attending a local community church with some of his friends. It was here that Daron began to realize his call to the ministry. Soon he began teaching Sunday School and preaching on several occasions. During this time he still embraced secular music.

For college Daron decided to move from Delaware to attend Norfolk State University. During this time he stayed with his Aunt who served as a great spiritual influence in his life. It was his Aunt Eileen who caused him to understand that if he wanted a successful walk with God, he would have to listen to music that would “bless his soul”. He soon threw away his entire collection of hip-hop tapes.

Soon Daron began freestyling again, but this time it was not to battle, but to Glorify God. One his coworkers asked him to enter a talent show at her church, and thus he wrote his first complete rap for God, “Special Delivery”.

Not wanting to depend upon anyone else for beats, Daron learned how to produce his own music. He then ventured out with one purpose in mind, to evangelize the youth, using the tool of Hip Hop. Towards that end “the tcha” has ministered as a performer, preacher, motivational speaker in many different locations, including various outreach events, churches, youth detention centers, and his own high school, where he is employed as a physics teacher. He also has shared the stage with several notable public figures including, Judge Hatchett, Kurtis Blow, and Bishop B. Courtney McBath.

The Tcha currently lives in Portsmouth, Virginia with his virtuous wife and two beautiful children.
