    Cstraight was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL where he lived with both parents and his twin brother. His family raised him in church from the age of 3 to adulthood. During his younger years, he fell in love with hip-hop culture after seeing "Leaders of the New School" video for "PTA", and afterward, he was hooked. Cstraight loved Wu Tang, AZ, NAS, Biggie, and many more hip-hop artists. Cstraight accepted Jesus as his Savior at the age of 13, and during the coming years, he would develop an interest in rhyming.

     He joined a Christian rap group, "The Remnant", and although the group never released an album, they touched many people with the gospel through countless events and functions. Cstraight would endure, and eventually succomb to some of the pitfalls of high school and college life after being sheltered within the walls of home and church. As many youth that grow up in the church do, he also began to feel as though he was missing out on something. This curiosity drew him away from the things of God which resulted in fornication and loosing the gift of virginity.  During his early 20's, he began to attend a Word-based church. Not only did this church teach him the Word of God, but also he had an in depth encounter with God. Cstraight began to submerge himself more into the things of God and serving in his local ministry.  In 2004, Cstraight released his first solo album, "The Nearest Truth" under the rap-name "Likewise".

    During that same year, Cstraight met his wife at work. They dated for a year, then committed themselves to covenant of marriage in May 2005 after which they both served in youth ministry.Today, they are raising two beautiful daughters in a Godly home. But things weren't always this perfect. In 2006, they gave birth to their first son who tragically passed away 2 weeks later due to complications. This loss caused Cstraight to doubt his faith and God which subsequently led him into into the sick pleasures of sin including drinking, clubbing and neglecting his duty as a husband and father. Before long, Cstraight was at rock bottom with a broken faith, broken marriage, and a broken heart from his loss. One Sunday morning, while passed-out on the floor from a night of drinking and partying, his wife took their daughter to church and rededicated her life to God. Cstraight feeling conviction and Godly sorrow recommited his life to God. Since then, he has served God faithfully.

    Not long after he rededicated his life, he reconnected with an old friend, Brinson, who was in the same ministry. While with Brinson, Cstraight was lead to serve as a hype man with no other intention but to serve and be a blessing. Cstraight rocked countless stages with Brinson for 2 years, which led to the oppurtunity to be featured on "Dat's Gospel 2" mixtape and Brinson's sophmore album "OMG". These collaborations lead to an even bigger opportunity of working on his own project "So Not Cool" which will be released April 26, 2011. Recently, Cstraight and his family has relocated to Little Rock, AR because he was called to to serve on the youth empowerment team for Harmony Church of Arkansas in Little Rock, AR.
