I was born and raised in VA. I thought life was hard there until I moved to Baton Rouge.There I spent some of my poorest, loneliest, coldest winters with no heat, barely maintaining a roof over my head, no food, and no one to talk to. However, I learned to trust God throughout my situations. I have come from being deserted and left by the women I loved, misused by those closest to me, and emotionally abused. Throughout these tough times, God taught me to lean and depend upon Him. He blessed me with the gift of Gospel rap and taught me to perfect that gift. God began to gradually increase my life. I've come from eating my next meal out of the trashcan to being a Blessing to others in need. God has blessed me to the point where I can now be a tremendous Blessing to others both financially and through my music.
