Changing Lives - One Verse At At Time.....Holy Hip - Hop !!!
I now serve God full time as a Pastor and one of my goals is to reach the
overlooked Hip-Hop community by speaking their language. I grew up on
Hip-Hop and I now use it to speak to incarcerated youth and our younger
generation on a monthly basis. My music is Biblically inspired, yet has a
Hip-Hop twist that can't be overlooked. It's real, from God, delivered
from the heart, and life changing!
I got into the Hip-Hop music arena because I found that many of the youth that are locked up in Juvenile Detention Centers and Jails across the country are being overlooked. This includes my generation (those born in the late 60’s and beyond). I know this music works, is relevant and reaches the people because I take it behind the jail house bars and to the streets on a monthly basis with a response of nothing but love and embracement.
I have reached 1000’s of people over the last few months with my videos, to include my rap videos through sites such as YouTube, GospelTube, UrbanTube, etc. I am a PhD candidate, have a Masters of Christian Ministry, etc. and I found that with all that education, if I can speak the language of those I am trying to reach, they hear nothing.
What I have done with hip-hop music by way of Christian Rap works and I have witnessed this first hand as I have taken it behind the bars and into the streets. Outside of Kanye West " Jesus Walks" there hasn't been an onset of Christian Rap that has received a lot of play. Society ate it up and loved it, so we know there is a desire for more of this music. Help me cross this music over to general society, while filling a void at the same time. This is a huge, virtually untapped portion of the industry simply waiting to explode. Together we can ignite it!
The goal is to have the resources to be able to advertise this music in major magazines (where applicable) and market it the music as an independent artist! With you help it can be done. I don't have to have a major label to do major things, just need major funding with a major plan! You can help! Thanks in advanced!
