A former gangster rap artist turned Catholic Hip-Hop Evangelist/Apologist.
During the late 80′s and early 90′s, his hometown of Fort Worth, TX reported the highest overall crime and murder rate per capita in the US. It was very easy to fall into a gangster mentality and lifestyle. He became involved in gangs, drugs, partying, and many other aspects of that lifestyle. As a means of venting and an escape, he began to write and record “gangsta” rap. He began pursuing a hip-hop career with a local record label and later formed the group Southern Kappin' Soldiers. While with SKS, he toured frequently and shared the stage with many major recording artists such as Bone Thugz n Harmony, Cypress Hill, SPM, and many more. It was at an “all ages” gangtsa rap concert that he understood the impact his music had on his young audience. Christ pierced his heart and convicted him of his sin. This was the beginning of his conversion and his journey home.
Though C2Six was born and raised a Catholic, he never took it further than going through the motions. Having a lack of understanding of his faith, he was led out of the Church. At one point, his outlook was anti-Catholic and began church hopping in a search for truth, a truth that would eventually lead him back to his Catholic roots.
He strives to be true and authentic in both his ministerial efforts of promoting the Gospel and his artistic endeavors as a hip-hop artist. He takes his ministry serious and helps spread the message through the arts of hip-hop under the spiritual guidance of Father Masseo Gonzales aka El Padrecito, a Franciscan Priest from Richmond, CA. He is not afraid to speak out and be true to the Catholic faith and the Magesterium of the Catholic Church.
He lives in Fort Worth, TX with his lovely wife of 18 years with his 2 beautiful children. He has a passion for working with under privileged, at-risk youth, troubled teens, gang members, and prison ministry.
