For Immediate Release
February 7, 2008
The Power of God Through Christian Hip-Hop
Paradigm came into this world on July 15, 1983 with an awesome call on his life. The enemy tried to snatch his life at birth, being born with an umbilical cord wrapped around his neck three times. Though the outcome uncertain to the on lookers, the power of God undoubtedly had to prevail, that destiny might be fulfilled. Paradigm was born and raised in the church and faced many ups and downs as a teenage
One place he could always find peace and rest was on the basketball court. His own court talent quickly gained him recognition as he began playing basketball in tournaments such as WEST 4TH and THE RUCKER. A career in basketball definitely seemed bright until an injury left him unable to play the sport he loved. During this time Paradigm turned his attention to his keyboard and began to discover a new gift and talent, "Music".
Playing the keyboard with no musical training he began to write and compose his very own songs. It has been two years since the revelation of his calling, and Paradigm has cultivated his own style of music. With a fun and energetic flow, coupled with words of wisdom, Paradigm communicates the power of God through Christian Hip- Hop. He effectively conveys the many facets of God, the joy of Christian living as well as the struggle.
Paradigm is anointed from God to reach and teach his people for this generation. Paradigm has a heart for music being a songwriter, producer, and rapper who has a passion for worship. God has anointed his music to compel the unsaved and to edify this generation for the assignment at hand, which is to glorify Jesus Christ and impact this culture for the kingdom.
Paradigm has performed at college events, open mics and youth concerts throughout the tri-sate area. He was recently featured on Brooklyn Community Access Television and also was featured on (former NBA player and current NBA Global Ambassador) Jerome "JYD" Williams, Change The World Movement CD.
Be on the look out for the ministry of Paradigm, who much like the apostle Paul is a teacher of the Gospel with zeal and candidness that is sure to impact nations.
