Beginning with his group Prafitz in 1993, Josiah’s musical journey is a testament to staying the course in an industry that is quick to move on to the latest flash in the pan. As Josiah explains, “Hip-hop, Christian or not, is no longer just a young man’s sport. This album is four years in the making. I’m here to speak on adult things, talk about life, and point people to God…oh yeah, don’t expect me to conform or try to fit in. I’m doing me!”
Pre-orders of both physical copies (physical copies will be shipped immediately) and digital downloads are available now. Everyone who pre-orders the CD will be put into a drawing and one winner will receive a $75 Amazon gift card along with a free ‘God Made Me Do It’ T-shirt or hoodie of their choice.
