Well, folks, it’s here. After all these years I have finally completed my first Hip Hope CD. How did I get here? Three years ago while sitting in marriage counseling, my wife and I were challenged to ask each other if we were living our dream.
Wifey: Absolutely. You allow me to stay home and homeschool our daughter. I get to instill our values and spiritual Christian faith in her upbringing. Absolutely. What about you?
Me: I don’t have dreams. They died. All I care about is taking care of you and our daughter.
Wifey: That’s sad, do whatever you have to do to fix it! I got you!
I tried everything, Primerica (which I still believe in), focusing on school, photography, and spent money on things (besides bills) that I thought would complete that missing link but it wasn’t until I stepped into the studio with my man Double G in 2016 that a fire was lit. I’ve put my heart, soul, bank account and savings into this project entitled, My Journey, named after my beloved daughter.
All I can say is that I believe in this project and its work. I’m under the banner of Christian rap and I’m sure some flack will come with that. It’s either too Jesusy or not Jesusy enough. I have shared my life. I have shared my heart. I have shared my Lord in the only way that really and truly moves me, and that’s Hip Hop/Hip Hope. It releases on iTunes for pre-order now, and fully available on most digital outlets, including Spotify, on 9/24/2018, a preview is available now with a song entitled “Back To…”. CD Release & Conversation Party (discussing the album). I guarantee this album with touch souls and hearts. Help me go double platinum :-). Seriously, I hope it blesses you and asking for your support Chicago, America, the World. Enjoy The Endurer’s contribution to Hip Hop, to cultural, to Christianity, and to the forgotten who have yet dared to DREAM!
