Let's hear it from Eric in His Own Words...

"It all begins with a beat ….
I have a history with darkness. From a chaotic childhood of poverty and addiction, to my own experiences with sin and vice. It's not been an easy road, but thank God He never gave up on me. Even after accepting Christ and getting clean, I continued to struggle with the temptations and pain of this world.
Two years ago my world was crumbling. My relationship with God and my family was at a low point. I felt useless, lost and in despair. I was sleeping in my car, unable to face my loved ones and without much hope for the future. That's when I heard it. The radio began playing a beat. That's where it all began. My soul was stirred for the first time in a long time. I bowed my head and let it move through me. I opened my mouth and out came the poetry that my heart had been holding in. I knew my mission from that day forth.
To anyone who is here listening to my music, first off I want to say thank you. But I also want you to know that whatever situation you’re in in your life right now, God has your back."
