    BIOGRAPHY:
    When I was young, I began going to The First Presbyterian Church in Homer, Michigan. My parents and I attended church service regularly on the weekends. After a while we all fell out of the habit. It's not that we stopped believing in Christ, my parents just became pre-occupied with work and what not (and with me being to young to drive) we just never found the time to make it to church on Sundays. For the majority of my life, I had no positive influence (other than my parents, which I thank God for daily for being there for me) and even dabbled in things I shouldn't have. I never rebelled more than getting a tattoo or the occassional piercing. I still respect my body as a temple and my parents were very understanding of my choice to be an individual. As my rap career started, I was no different than any other rapper out there just trying to make a name for himself off gimmicks and deragatory statements. As years passed, I became involved with numerous girls that tended to lead me down the wrong path. Luckily my will and morals were high enough that I was never tempted to do anything I didn't agree with. The more I dated, the more I seemed to be distracted from The Lord. Finally, when I turned 19, I attended a church and it opened my eyes to a whole new world. A world that I couldn't even imagine existed. And so I kept attending. I think the two biggest influences in my life that contributed to my reunion with Christ would have to be Campus Life Leader, Jeremy Dowsett. In fact, the day that I decided to announce my transition from rapper to Christian rapper was the day Jeremy Dowsett quoted 1 Corinthians 13.10 , "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things." and it hit me; what I was rapping about, was it right? I had to look at myself and how my music was affecting everyone else. So I did just that and I put behind my childish lyrics and began reading the Bible while continuing my morning devotional. I began work on what would be the most spiritual album I had ever created. My first Christian music offering, "Tha OtherSyde of HighTyde". I continued going to church throughout 2002 and still continue to. Fate, as well as a helping hand from God led me to eventually find Alicia. Not only had my life takena major turn for the better--but I believe that Christ also helped me with my writing skills and gave me direction with my follow up albums to "Tha OtherSyde of HighTyde", entitled "Fear Not" and "Enissophobia". He also brought Nick and Jordan into my musical life and thus created an unstoppable group capable of spreading his word. Jesus Christ, began blessing me with performances in 2003, from colleges to churches to parties to clubs to talent shows. Later in 2004, I would be contacted by Jon Sparks an A&R for Station South Entertainment, based out of Nashville, Tennessee. After countless meetings both on the phone and in person, Jon would become my manager, Carrie Ulmet would become my Booking Agent, and I began traveling back and forth to Tennesse recording for my first studio album set for release on Warner Bros. Backed by the first single "Christmas Card" which gained much praise Nationwide, it was sure to be a success. BUT, things began bottoming out faster and faster, trips to Tennesse were becoming more and more, but productivity was becoming less and less. Things just started to tank, and thus I walked. I have since decided to go back to recording tracks in my home studio, saving up money to first buy a house, and then to start my own record label. I thank Jon for the opportunity and for the learning experience, and some day I am going to pay him back, because I owe him much. As I thank God everyday for these opportunities, I know deep down it's His way of saying "Thanks for telling everyone about me. That's it so far, but I will continue to add to my devotional as it unfolds.
