Raised by a single mother in Houston, Texas, he moved around a lot in his early years and soon dicovered rap as a way to convey his feelings to others. Before starting college, he was almost arrested for drug possession. When the police officer saw a Bible on the back seat of his car, he asked what it was. He told him, “I know I need to live it.” That night, the officer made a deal with him that if he agreed to live by the Bible, the officer would let him go. Soon after, a Christian leader encouraged him to attend a conference where he heard James G. White speak. From this encounter, he gave his life to Christ and became passionate about Jesus Christ and Christianity. This led him to print his salvation testimony and pass it out across the University of North Texas campus. After graduating from the University of North Texas, he began volunteering at a juvenile detention center and began work on his debut album. In 2005, he co-founded ReachLife Ministries which is a non-profit organization that exists to help equip local Christian leaders with tools and media projects that are culturally relevant and based on the teachings of the Bible.
