I'm from Detroit, birthplace of Motown. I'm a multi-faceted artist/producer/singer/rapper. I sing about God and the many challenges in life. This leads to the ultimate reward, through his son Jesus Christ. So I'm not here for the fame. I hope you receive the message of hope through my music. If one of my songs gets picked up, let the the glory be to God, and him only.

Jackson, Timothy Brown (deceased), and DJ Veno. We performed commercial, clean rap, laced with smooth r&b choruses, at high schools, the june-teenth festival (1988) , and the same year ,won the right to open up for these legends of hip hop : KRS-ONE, ICE-TEE , DOUG E. FRESH , KOOL MOE DEE , BIZ MARKIE, AND ERIK B& RAKIM! After the concert, the group didn’t stay together too long. I was discovered by a local independent record label, Belt Drive records (1992).
