"He leaves nothing to the imagination at a time when so many other CHH artists come across as unsure and undedicated to keeping The Cross at the forefront of their artistry."
— David Eagles, FiveTwenty Collective
"You’ll find no autotune, trap, or double time raps. iNTELLECT’s project Roots takes it back to the roots of both Hip Hop and Christian Hip Hop. This project’s sound is so rough and raw that it’s refreshing."
"iNTELLECT has a true old school Hip Hop sound which reminds us of KRS-One."
iNTELLECT - CHRISTIAN HIP HOP EMCEE & PRODUCER
With a distinct east coast flow, iNTELLECT has used his gift to spread the message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ to areas throughout the Midwest. Drawing his inspiration from the Gospel and life experience, iNTELLECT combines biblically sound doctrine with hip hop beats. “Being that I grew up in a home with a Christian mother and an alcoholic father, my mother has been one of the most influential persons in my life. I watched how she constantly prayed for my father (who eventually came to salvation before his death) and I became a firsthand witness on how faith and prayer can change the direst of situations. I watched how she studied the Word of God and how she passionately lived the Christian life while I was growing up. Even though at times I had strayed away from the path, she always told me that God had a plan for my life. Her influence has helped me see the importance of not only living a life of integrity but also to present myself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15).”
Music and the Message have always been a passion for iNTELLECT. “I’ve always loved hip hop music; the beats, the lyrics, the whole nine. But at the end of the day, if it’s not God-inspired, it’s powerless.” And recognizing the call to share his faith, iNTELLECT continues to use his talents and gifts to reach a lost generation.
