Personality Reviews officially begin with Psalms, or like he loves calling himself JPsalms116 (I think an allusion to Lecrae and his 116 campaign of being unashamed of the gospel.)
I have found this young man to be extremely approachable and God-fearing. This is a young man with the passion for lost souls in his eyes, and I am glad that he has graced this blog with his presence. (I know I just made the blog look like a red-carpet, PS: It will be soon)

Knowing God and Making Him known.
Insight— getting to know Who God is.
In Sight—experiencing God.
Insight—sharing the most amazing News of God’s Love.
Through this project, I hope that we all can discover God’s Love and forgiveness, experience His grace that is sufficient for us all, and consider the privilege of serving Jesus Christ by taking the most joyful news the world has ever heard to all men.
Soli deo Gloria
This is a hip-hop album that I feature the likes of B4C Family (my brothers), X-po, Jefro, Kamlesh, MC Muhubiri, and MC Dice. The vocals have been done by two Texas girls M’lynn and Leslie.
Cover Design of the album by Kaylee Schimitt from Florida.
Produced at Mbarathi’s, flock work and Rhyme X. Mastered by Rhyme X.
I will be doing an online release on 29.7.2011 and the plans for a listening party are underway, and it will tentatively be in August. Keep me in your prayers.
Q: Who is your audience for the album? (Who are you speaking to in the album?)
A: In the album I am speaking to both Christians and non Christians. For the non Christians for them to get to know the love of Christ and how much God loves us all that when we were yet sinners Christ died for mankind. For the Christians for them to understand that nothing they can do can justify the favor and Grace granted to them and that they should be encouraged to go out and share in the mission of Jesus Christ which was Love.
Q: What is the biggest moment of your musical career?
A: I was ministering at a prison using a keyboard as the kick and snare and was rapping to awesome God. When I finished there was a prisoner who wanted to give His life to Christ. That was just of the chains. God confirmed to me that even through the rap music I do He still was willing for people to worship him.
Soli Deo Gloria
Q: What is on your music player?
A: Beautiful monster, Black light, the church, Stop the funeral…..waiting for Native lungs.
Q: Parting shot.
A: Love God hate sin. We are all saved by GRACE (Gods riches at Christ expense)
