    M.O.C. is a Jersey girl, who grew up listening to hard-core and metal bands. Her career start in hip-hop began as something fun to do for summer, and she never believed at the time that it would go beyond that. But God would have bigger plans for her, and what she thought would be just another phase would become her life's calling.

    "I got a phone call from a girl in my youth group, who was starting a rap group, "M.O.C. remembers. "We were asked to do some spots at our church youth camp and so, we had someone do tracks for us, started rhyming together and it pretty much blew-up from there."

    The duo performed in various venues throughout New Jersey and surrounding states. Never signing a record deal, a few years into it they parted ways. M.O.C., whose stage name during that time was MC Ree, dropped the out-dated name and decided to rap under the moniker Mind of Christ.

    Her name was not the only thing that M.O.C. had to change when she became a solo artist. She also had to learn how to write a good rhyme. "The other girl that I used to rap with did a lot of the writing. So, I was like, 'Ok Lord, here it is-I don't write so, either supernaturally give me the talent to write or we're going to have to stop this rap thing. After that, I just started writing songs."

    In time her life career took an interesting turn. She began writing rap/hip-hop, R&B, and pop for producer Joe P (Pink, Mya, 3LW). As she contributed music to others, M.O.C. was still worrying about her own career as an artist. In the Spring of 2004, all of her fears provided the perfect inspiration for a new song, "Blas?uot; The song, which speaks about finding peace about the little things and having no worries, was added to the play list of radio station WNAZ 89.1 FM in Nashville. The station received tremendous response from their listeners and the single quickly became one of the most requested songs.

    M.O.C.'s sound appeals to a very diverse audience not only because she has found the right balance between rap, R&B and pop, but also because she has set a high standard for her music.
    As one of the few positive female emcees, she stands to fight a Goliath-sized battle to not only open the doors, but to also lead artists in the charge to bring a higher standard back to the industry. "I don't get the 'you're good for a girl' that much; I've been taken seriously," she says. "I hope God uses me to open doors so we can start setting the standards for the world and stop following the world."

    Who has known the mind of the LORD that they may instruct Him? But that we have the MIND OF CHRIST.?
    1 Corinthians 2:16
