Hey fam, thanks for taking an interest enough to read about
me. There’s much to be said about me, but even more to be said about my God!
I was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico into a rough neighborhood,
an abusive father, but very loving mother. After a few years, my mother and I
left that neighborhood and my father to start new in Lancaster, PA… how
she found the small city of Lancaster, PA is beyond me, but I am glad she
did! She worked extremely hard to take care of me on her own until she
remarried. My step-dad stepped in and taught me many things about manhood that I had no concept of.
In 1997 I visited a Pentecostal church and heard
about God. I understood that He was big, He created me, and He sent His Son to
die for me… I just didn’t really understand WHY!? I just knew how to "go to church" and be a "good Christian".
I lived sinfully outside the church building walls,
partying, drinking, smoked some weed, watched a lot of porn, chased girls to
lay with them, cursed a lot, and challenged authority! However, I attended
church and got baptized so I was cool, right?… NOT! I never repented and I never truly gave my life to God.
Now, since about summer of 2000, I had been building a relationship
with, my now pastor, Juan Carlos Morales (we all call him Los). We met when I heard he had a studio from my
friend (who was also a youth group leader) that found out that I was writing raps on the low. Though
our relationship started from an interest in music, he took an interest in
discipling me. I was very rebellious and butted heads A LOT with him since
everything he tried to tell me was true lol. He didn't just tell me a bunch of things, he showed me with his life! He opened up his home and family to me and I saw the Gospel lived out, right in front of me! Outside of the church building. This was revolutionary.
In 2004, Los sat down with me and helped me understand God’s
holiness, our sin, God's perfect love and justice, and my reaction to it all. As I learned this, my life began to change. I saw that I can no longer sin
against a God who loved me enough to sacrifice His own Son to forgive me. Not
only could I not sin against Him, but I was compelled to live every
breath I have thanking Him with all that I am… even as a rapper. It was no longer about "going to church" but about "being the church".
I have since then continued to learn more about Jesus from
Los, found my beautiful wife and married her happily on August of 2010, introduced our first son, Nehemiah to the world mid 2012 then our daughter Marilyn Lily in late 2014, recorded five full albums and
serve across the country wherever I am called to give His gospel and make Him
I'm not perfect, but I am passionate. I am eternally grateful, on a mission to make God known, and living daily to fulfill that mission.
