Born in Greenwood to finally move to St. Louis he discovered rap at the age of fourteen and when he was sixteen years old he made his first demo.
But Uncle Y as he was called then got involved in crime and the hardships of a streetlife.
His rap career got a boost by winning a battle from a famous local rapper called L.O.S. of Bullet Proof Records. By that time he started making more contacts in the industry and even doing concerts, this kept him off the streets.
When he lost his cousin and long time friend “Tank” Thi’sl was shocked and asked God why? Taking this route he met Flame on an evangelizing event in his neighbourhood.
Flame would become his friend and collegue in holyhiphop. Thi’sl took a year and a half to study the bible and made the choice to rap the gospel and be an instrument of God himself by doing concerts at churches, high schools, colleges and prisons.
In 2006 Thi’sl started the Ezekiel Project and released a CD with the same title. Thi’sl sees rap music as an effective ministry tool to reach the youth with the gospel. Churches can buy the CD and hand them out. The vision of the project is based upon Ezekiel 37:4-5.
In 2007 the rapper re-released his 2004 debut album This house I shall Live, with additional new tracks.
The rapper is currently working on his next project “The Chronicles of an X-Hustler”.
Thi’sl, on X Hustler music, is from St. Louis. He is a Christian rapper with style influenced by Flame, Cross movement, and Lecrae.
