We want to thank T. Prophet for taking time out of his schedule to do this interview with us. I feel like someone with his passion for the Lord and his gift that God gave him, he can go a long way in #CHH and use his ministry to teach the lost. Make sure you keep your ears open because T. Prophet has that fire up in his bones and is coming speaking God’s Word!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed music, loved production, and innovative creative lyrics. My branching into CHH was a transition. From first having a solid foundation built on the Word of God, and then becoming a fan of the art itself.
How are you changing the culture for God?
Their are many talented and amazing artists in this specific genre. My cultural influence, is only a small contribution of change in my mind. So the results of change in hearts regarding my influence is only truly known by God.
Who are u listening to that we should be listening too?
It’s a number of different people. The list varies, not one specific artist.
What do you hope people will get out of your music and your new EP?
I always desire that people get the solid truth. Truth that will cultivate their entire lifestyles, and open up their hearts, and minds to greater convictions. Which will in return bring greater victories, and an even stronger relationship with Christ.
Who influenced you the most in music and in life?
The Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
How hard is it to separate business and your ministry?
I see my ministry as a blessing, I see it as an opportunity to change lives and reach people through a God given gift. Business is needed in any endeavor you encounter, so it’s really no escaping that. It’s just how you handle it, and with what moral convictions you feel God is giving you when making major decisions.
On your longest day and hardest battle what scripture do you find strength in?
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31
How much have you grown on this project, talent wise and spiritually?
It’s hard to say honestly. I been through so much life wise and spiritually, that I really don’t notice when it’s much growth. Due to much pouring out spiritually, I genuinely find solace and spiritual charging in prayer, studying the Word, as well as praise & worship.
One of the biggest topics in the music business now is streaming, how does that affect you as an artist?
It doesn’t affect me at all, the message of Christ being spread is what’s important.
There is no wrong or right answer but, what’re your thoughts on Christian rapper or just a rapper?
Everyone has been blessed with talents of some sort, by God. It’s how you use that talent that measures how God judges you. So I believe everyone is entitled to their own decisions, but rest assure the decisions one makes, will impact them for eternity.
On your new song, “Prayer Break” what inspired you to make a song like this?
I felt led to make it honestly. Just a song to expose my versatility and abilities lyrically.
Do you have a church you go to? We are just asking because we are starting to see a trend in Chh where the newcomers aren’t going or using their gifts in the church.
I mostly bring Church to the streets where a lot of people are not in Church cause that’s what I believe I’m chosen to do at this time. Church for my family is everyday, because God is always present, and I’m ministering often throughout the day as well as my Wife to our Children and one another. I do believe God called me to build a Church and pastor full time, but as for right now my service is needed elsewhere.
