From his early days with Lighter Shade of Brown to his notable work on 2 Pac’s “Better Dayz”, and numerous Billboard-charting gospel projects, he has consistently defied expectations. He is a Stellar Award winner, a 15-time Gospel Spin Awards winner, and the curator of God’s House of Hip Hop Radio, the first hip-hop faith-based station to win a Stellar Award.
