“I am a servant not a celebrity” My grind has always been about using my God given gifts to uplift people & ultimately bring them to the cross. My sound, what I bring to the table is the result of my passion for people. We are not called to be “lights amongst lights” we are called to be “lights amongst the darkness”. This partnership will open new doors and a new level of war fare. I am a new breed, cut from a different cloth. This is chess not checkers, I am leading with calculated and ordered steps. The album is titled “BullDoze City” because anything that is in your way; fear, depression, procrastination, enemies etc, in this season, will get Bulldozed if you walk in faith & obedience. “Gifted is an Artist that’s has what it takes to change the atmosphere of this industry”- Rick Robinson (CEO iMG Recordings)
