Official Bio
“When the bullet missed me yall; and it went and hit the wall; that wasn’t bad aim; that was Jesus Christ.”

Held at gunpoint with thieves rummaging through their house, Richie experienced a world where people are harsh. His newborn sister’s life was threatened and his father’s life was endangered by thieves who believed that his father being a Pastor, would have much wealth. They were mistaken for they only left with his parents’ wedding rings. That night Richie saw the world through the eyes of a seven-year-old. In one night he saw fear, terror, tears, and God’s faithfulness. Little did he know that bullets in various forms, whether they be criticisms, loss of relatives, disappointment, etc., would pass his way, but would miss him because of Jesus Christ.
Richard Mohammed Ishmael was born a Pastor’s son in the country of Guyana, South America. His dad was the Pastor of a church called Eccles assembly of God. At around age 11 Richie and his family migrated to the United States where they settled in Queens NY. There Richie quickly fell in love with the hip hop culture which was rapidly growing in America. His dad started a church in Jamaica, Queens called Jamaica Assembly of God. In church Richie was active playing the drums. Although he was active in church he was being heavily influenced by the outside world. His actions with the kids in his apartment building and at his high school were not approved by his father. He even hung out in places where drugs were being heavily sold and guns were carried, fortunately Richie was never involved in a crime.
