RIP to the Bad Boy rapper who later joined the Christian Ministry

They say your college days will be filled with some of your best memories. I am fortunate to say that sentence applies to myself. The whole Bad Boy Family movement was the soundtrack to my life and if the Bad Boy catalogue was my album then Craig Mack’s Flava In Ya Ear was the song they played with the beginning credits.

From the countless days rollin in the 96 Toyota Celica with my roommate Vinnie, while we got lost in upstate New York to dorm parties with my future wife Jhen; the sounds of the Coca Cola bottles forever ringing.

Soon after all the success in Hip Hop, Craig was suddenly nowhere to be seen. He later popped up in South Carolina as a man of God. You can read more about his story here.

Thank you Puffy for the sounds of our college days and #RIP to the first one out of the gate for Bad Boy… #CraigMack

Merry Christmas to Asia and the Pacific and happy Christmas Eve to all

Have a blessed Christmas Eve with family and friends. If you are not with loved ones, I pray that the Holy Spirit comfort you and wrap you with love and peace.   As for me, i am blessed to be with my wife and kids.  I do not take it for granted that I have them around.  I miss my mom and dad as they are halfway around the world.  It warms my heart that they are at my fathers childhood home right now.

The Newsboys say it best.


Some negativity, frustration and angst tried entering my thoughts, but the words of encouragement from workhorseforchrist really has been helping my the past two weeks.  Adam has an amazing blog that will inspire and educate.  Please visit it.


Finally, I thank the lord for each and everyone of you who take the time to read this blog.  I pray that this blog helps you as much as it has helped strengthen my faith.  God Bless us all! -PJSLB
