Majestic production accompanied by inspiring lyrics makes this record another victory for the indie hip hop artist who has been on the rise releasing a string of independent singles. Unlike some Christian rappers John is not preaching to the choir, his rhyme style and subject matter is appealing to those in the pews as well as the streets.
John tha Baptist is a veteran rapper who was inspired to rap by 80’s hip-hop culture. Contemporary Christian and gospel artist like Lacrae, Chyrch , Tye Tribbit and Canton Jones has also served as influences for John Tha Baptist. Since he began rapping at the age of twelve he has evolved into a style that he describes as his own. He says his main goal with his music is to “evangelize to the world and let them know Jesus IS”. John is currently on a mid-west promotion tour , doing shows and raising the awareness of his project while spreading the WORD.
“GO HARD FOR JESUS” is the first single off of the album “A Repentant Drug Dealer (A changed man)” available now on itunes , amazon.com and cdbaby . Team John Tha Baptist consist of himself and his partner/producer Christopher King, together they form Greater Faith Entertainment.
John and G.F.E has plans to continue to spread the good word by forming his own record label and eventually becoming a actual gospel singer.
