Nutty Josh began rapping at the age of 16, albeit as a secular artist. All that changed, however, when he personally committed his life to Christ at age 18 and he went ‘crazily Gospel’! He kept to his love and talent for rap, but yielded his passion and ability to God. He has steadily grown not just artistically, but also in the anointing on his life and in his reliance on the Word. He is totally sold out to reaching young people all over the globe with the Gospel of Jesus Christ via the vehicle of hip hop and in pursuance of this vision, began a God-given vision called GRA (Gospel Rap Affair) in 2004. The annual event has seen the convergence of many anointed rap and R & B ministers and the release of a Mixtape album.
