Everyone of us goes through various trials throughout the course of our lives. We all suffer and experience pain. However, no one in all of history has suffered as much as Jesus. He suffered throughout the course of his life. He is God in the flesh and came to bring salvation. Yet he was rejected by men and mocked and laughed at. He was lonely and afflicted at times here on earth. He also suffered more than we can ever imagine on the cross. The Father turned His back on Christ and He experienced the wrath of God for sinners like me and you. Christ suffered brutally on the cross here on earth so that we would not have to suffer for eternity in hell!
On “Suffering Servant Part I” Stephen raps almost line for line from Isaiah 53 in the famous passage about Christ – The Suffering Servant. I pray this song would help you be thankful for what Christ has done for you around this Thanksgiving season!

Suicide feat. Japhia Life and Leah Smith

Check it out up on my bandcamp site!

Suicide takes the lives of nearly 30,000 Americans every year but many who attempt suicide never seek professional care. An average of one person dies by suicide every 16.2 minutes. Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for 15- to 24-year-old Americans . Believin Stephen teamed up with Japhia Life and Leah Smith to bring awareness to this sensitive topic on his brand new single called “Suicide”. Stephen sympathizes with those who wrestle with feeling worthless and suicidal. He vividly paints the picture of his own experience with suicidal thoughts and how God rescued him out of depression. Japhia Life passionately delivers his regret of seeing one of his best friends take his own life.  Leah Smith’s graceful voice adds a heart –touching hook. Stephen is known for conveying his emotions on his songs but this is the most personal and touching song he has ever released. The song produced by Mike Beats will be on his upcoming album “The Suffering Servant” which releases on December 14, 2010.

New Single Out!!!

If you click that link you can listen and/or buy to the first single off The Suffering Servant album called "Surprised by Suffering?" It is produced by Big Juice and was inspired by things I have seen around me as well as a book by R.C. Sproul called Surprised by Suffering. Be on the lookout for more leaks and news on the album coming very soon!!!

 Living in a fallen world suffering is bound to occur in all of our lives. The question is how will we face it? Christ promised that we would suffer and the Scriptures tell us that suffering brings about perseverance, character and hope. We should be prepared for suffering as it conforms us into the image of Christ and gives God glory. The Suffering Servant album holistically looks at the topic of suffering through witty lyrics, ill rhyme schemes, a passionate delivery ,and intriguing story telling. It features some of the best producers and emcees in CHH. Gametime Recordings will be releasing this project on iTunes on December 14.

Mixing Sessions

I'm in the studio right now with my engineer/producer/friend Average Joe. Both of us have full time jobs with demanding hours but we've been in the studio every night after we get off work. This week is strictly dedicated to mixing down the album. It's amazing how much better songs sound once a good mix is applied to the song. The bass in the beat bangs more, the vocals match the beat; the lyrics sound crisp and clear. I can't lie, it's gettin me more and more excited for the album to drop. I'm gonna drop the first single real soon and think people will be blessed by it.
