Words from Joe Hunt:
“I don’t just consider myself a song writer and producer but also an evangelist called to minister to the musical culture I was raised up in. I grew up listening to artists like Tupac and Eminem and was greatly influenced by the rap and hip hop culture. When I listened to the lyrics it was as if they were depicting my life and struggles in a musical form! Before I knew it, I began writing my own struggles and feelings into musical lyrics. As time passed, my skills grew and it wasn’t long until I was actually pretty good at articulating my life struggles in musical art form! In April of 2005 I had a real encounter with Jesus Christ and that night gave over my life and decided to follow Jesus. Four years later, I would make the decision to write Christian rap music!
Since then I have been able to perform at various events around Colorado and even performed along side Nationally known artists like rapper and producer K-Drama and rapper and singer Rachel Washington! I have also had a taste of the National stage opening for big names like Steven Curtis Chapman, Big Daddy Weave, Jeremy Camp and more. I hope to continue to grow as an artist and to spread my music all around this great nation and in time around the world!”
