FLAME was born and raised in inner city St. Louis. Today, he is a well-versed leader in the Christian hip-hop scene with a growing list of accolades, including a GRAMMY® nomination and multiple Dove and Stellar Award nominations. He has released 8 albums to date including Captured (2010), The 6th (2012), Royal Flush (2013), and Forward (2015) under his own imprint.
In addition to touring, writing, recording and coproducing his own projects, FLAME founded and helms Clear Sight Music, a burgeoning record label raising the bar in Christian hip-hop and beyond. He also has a degree in biblical counseling from Louisville’s Southern Seminary, viewing rich biblical knowledge as essential to his ministry. “I love the Bible. I love theology. I love Jesus and that light bulb moment when people get excited about Him. I love taking the knowledge from the Bible and connecting the dots with how these things apply to our everyday lives and our deep-seated personal issues.” His first book, All In, which released earlier this year, is a biblically-based guide for living our a Christian worldview in every facet of life.
