We want to thank B – Fade for taking some time out of his busy schedule to sit down and answer some question we asked. Thanks B – Fade & thank you 4 changing the culture 4 God!
Bkk – How did u get into Chh?
B – Fade – I was a secular artist before I got saved, and once I gave my life to the Lord I put the mic down. The youth pastor at the church that I was attending at the time had a Christian record label, so we would go to the studio and hang out while his other artist recorded songs and did studio work. I was asked to get on a compilation that they were putting together, so I wrote a song, and at the time I thought it was corny, becauseIi had never done anything like that before, but the more God renewed my mind I knew that the message in the music could help people. After ministering in a live performance I knew this is what God wanted me to do, bring his word in this manner. A lot of people thing I’m new, but I have been in CHH for 14 years holding it down in the Bay Area.
Bkk – How are you changing the culture for God?
B – Fade – Everywhere I go I let my light shine for the Lord, and I use words when necessary(smile).
The culture today has standards set that people try to live up to, and my message is you can be who
God created you to be, prosper, and have a fulfilled life in him. I just let God use me, and people recognize it.
Bkk – Who are u listening to that we should be listening too?
Right now Im listening to Young Noah and k-Dramas latest project. Two totally different projects, but both
bring encouragement and they both hit hard. Im also listening to Hollyn real heavy right now. I love Britt Nicole Building 429, and Finding Favour, I love CCM.
Bkk – What do you hope people will get out of your music?
B – Fade – I hope people will come to know the God that I know. The one that loves them regardless of their faults, hangups, and addictions. I hope that people will learn that All Things Are Possible with God(Mark 10:27). I hope people will learn that giving their live to the Messiah is the best decision they could ever make.
Bkk – Who influenced you the most in music and in life?
B – Fade – The person that influenced me the most in music before I got saved was the gangster rappers, but once I got saved one of the gangster rappers by the name of Agerman had gotten saved, and became a Christian Rapper and a preacher.
That had the most influence on me because I knew him before his transformation, so I was able to see what God had done in his life. I can’t recall many positive influences in my life, and I’m just being honest on this. Through the years I established good relationships with mature men of God who have helped me along the way.
Bkk – Who would you like to work with in the future?
B – Fade – I have done songs with V-Rose, Spec, R-Swift, K-Drama,Keno Camp,Transparent, Black Knight(BrvndonP), Eric Cross, Joint Heirs, Gospel Gangsters, Erica Cumbo just to name a few. I love doing songs with other artists. Its not just to get features for notoriety but to deliver a diverse product to the public with different styles and flavors. I would like to work with more bands and CCM artists. Group 1 Crew, Royal Taylor, Manafest. I would also like to work with some writers like Natalie Lauran and Jai.
Bkk – How hard is it to separate business and your ministry?
B – Fade – Its not hard for me at all, I tell people that the ministry is what you talk about on your project, and your everyday behavior, and walk in life. The rest is business from an industry standpoint. I believe in contracts, getting an understanding, and making things fair for everyone. Sometimes in the mist of conducting business I have an opportunity to have a ministry moment, and thats consistent in my everyday life.
Bkk – On your longest day and hardest battle what scripture do you find strength in?
