Jacksonville. — When
award-winning hip-hop artist Brinson Wright was just 4 years old, he was given
a cassette tape containing the song “Bible Break” by Stephen Wiley (regarded as
the godfather of Christian rap), and a seed was planted. Brinson grew up
knowing that the spoken rhymes of rap and the spoken words of the gospel were
not mutually exclusive, and that music and ministry could be intertwined and
used to edify and reach the often-unreachable youth audience.

“Rap, honestly, is
motivation music,” Brinson said in a recent interview. “I’m going to motivate
people to chase God.”

just-dropped album, Before He Cracks the Sky, is his 11th solo project and 80th
overall release from GodChaserz Entertainment, the record label he founded in
2006. On it, he offers a prophetic voice along the lines of Malachi, who
fervently attempts to share the good news that his neighbors can indeed be

As with his past
projects, Before He Cracks the Sky features top-notch sounds (including contributions
from multi-platinum-selling producer Frank Nitty) and guest performances from
Christian hip-hop veterans like Corey Red & Precise and Knine, and
newcomers Porsha Love, Bri, Lu the Great and TC the Collector.

And like his last two
albums, Before He Cracks the Sky is wrapped in a vivid cover designed by
notable Marvel/DC/Image comic book artist Ken Lashley (of Black Panther, Star
Wars and Spawn fame).

Brinson’s work in
other areas has been gaining considerable attention. His GodChaserz documentary
has won over 40 awards, and his entrance theme for Serena Deeb was featured on
All Elite Wrestling. Plus, his book, 10 Things Every Christian Hip Hop Artist
Should Know, provides valuable direction for others who want to enter the music
industry without compromising their Christian values.

Using multiple forms
of media to share his message comes naturally for Brinson, who is also an avid
comic book collector, movie buff and ordained minister.

“It’s time for
listeners to lend their ears to Before He Cracks the Sky,” Brinson said. “This
is where it all began — telling stories about God’s good grace.”
