I was raised in the church but, like a lot of people, I walked away the first chance I got. I gravitated towards the street. To this day, I have no idea what made me like the street life so much but I did. I got caught up in a lot of things, so much so that when I think of my past I feel ashamed of it. Although I know that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ, my past is something that is always present, mainly because, every now and then, I run into somebody that my past has effected.
It hurts, but I thank God for Jesus. I went to an all-Muslim high school, which prepared me for life as a Christian in the real world. Toward the end of my time in high school, I made the decision to really commit my life to Christ. One night I was on the front steps with my friends smoking weed, and a Christian rapper by the name of HanSoul walked up to us and heard us rapping.
He told me to rap and I did. After, he told me that God had a purpose for me. I didn't understand what he meant, but later on I would see him at the craziest times. It made me really think about God and How I needed to ride for him. Immediately after I graduated high school, I went into ministry.
I hit the streets. In fact, I hit the same streets that I used to hang out in then spread out to different parts of Philly. I became known to many for my faith and that's still the case today. I'm an evangelist.
I went to school at Philadelphia Biblical University for Jewish Studies and for Biblical Studies. My schooling did NOT qualify me; the Lord qualified me. All school did was add to my knowledge of the word, so that I would be able to apply it to my own life, and then teach others (in that order). I don't think there was a particular time that I became a "Christian rapper"; I just started writing what was in my heart.
