Samuel Arthur Pierce was born January 23rd 1983 in Raleigh North Carolina. He was raised in Wendell until he was 8 years old and moved to Middlesex North Carolina. He is a Christian hip-hop/rap recording artist and producer whose sole purpose is to minister the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ in hope that the world make receive the truth and live a committed lifestyle. In his music Sam talks mainly about the transformation Jesus Christ made in his life, the truth in love of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the struggles in his life he has faced as a follower of Christ such as pornography, uncontrollable anger, fear, pride.
After the passing of his father in 1991 and home being burned down it was very mentally challenging for Sam as a young man. Because he was very close to his father, the lost made him very angry as he constantly stayed in fights at school and being suspended. His mother, sister and he moved to Middlesex, North Carolina to live with his Grandmother Sarah Blount and her husband James. Six months later they moved into a double wide home where he started to write music about life getting his influences from Nas, Notorious B.I.G, Keith Murray, Mos Def, and Wu-Tang Clan. At the age of 9, Sam’s first song was about women, drugs, and money as he thought that was what life was about because he consistently surrounded himself in that environment when he was away from his mother. Sam’s Mother Cheryl, was a God fearing woman who always made the effort to share the love of Jesus with Sam, even when he rejected it. Both his Mother and Father were followers of Christ and made sure that he was bought up in a Christ-Like environment.
Ever since he was 8 he has been diagnosed with epilepsy yet he does not allow this to discourage nor distract him as he constantly claims and believes that Jesus has healed him because of the word of God. Although he has recently had violent episodes of seizures in 2012 and 2015 he still produces and performs music with no defects. “Part of my testimony of God’s unfailing love for me personally is that I can walk, talk, and function normally because as many seizures as I have had, I should be in a wheel chair” Sam says. He continues to write and produce in hope to reach others who have lost hope on life and given up their goals. In 2005 he gave his life to Christ but went to college and started having pre-marital sex and did not stay faithful. In 2007 he met a group of young men who sincerely loved Jesus Christ in a small group called YTC (Youth Taking Charge). After confessing his negative behavior while he was in YTC, Sam rededicated his life to Jesus Christ and started to hang out with the young men consistently and slowly let go of his old habits. Sam has always loved music and while in college at UNC-Greensboro, he wrote poetry about his experiences living a Christian lifestyle. He continues to write today with the same renewed mindset allowing the Holy Spirit to control his pen writing with the purpose of sharing the gospel of Jesus though his personal testimony.
In 2015 Sam launched his own independent record label “Renew Your Mind Records” that is based off the scripture he lives by daily Romans 12:2 stating “Be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, he and gospel artist Ernest Musik are the only artist on the label currently. Up under the label he released his first single “Renewed” off his debut album “Renewed” he released November 23rd 2015. Sam took what the Lord gave him and produced, wrote, and engineered his first album with a computer mic and a free digital audio workstation app. Since then he has been blessed with quality equipment and connections to help produce his second album to be released December 16th 2016 “Be Still”. The first single off this album “Chill” features Christian singer and songwriter Alyssa Wade and Christian Rap artist/CEO Doctrinn from Final Reflect Entertainment got over 71,000 plays on SoundCloud and has worked with artist and producers like Kayo Bracey, The One Keon, & Sheleta Mason. He recently released his 1st mixtape “Plugin 2 Jesus Vol. 1" in 2017 as a free download on as its purpose is to reach the younger generation to show them the love of Jesus and enjoying life without drinking, smoking or having sex outside of marriage.
