Info:David ”MC Psalmist“ Liciaga was born on April 27, 1981 as the popularity of rap music and Hip Hop culture was on the sharp incline. New York City birthed him, and Queens borough raised him through a myriad of tough issues. Through his childhood and adolescent years, he dealt with demonic attacks, a fascination with gang culture, lust and pornography, and multiple accounts of theft; his dedication to dj'ing, producing and rapping drew him further into a pit of lies and exposed him to things that desensitized him to sin; thank God for redemption!

Jesus
MC Psalmist encountered the life altering power of Jesus Christ at age 16 at a summer youth program. Immediately, he was delivered from the desire to commit the sins he had previously become accustomed to; he left his job as a dj and immersed himself in the word and soon after started a Christian club at his high school, through which he evangelized to many of his schoolmates. It was also at age 16 that he began to use his talents of rapping and music production for the Lord.

Rap
MC Psalmist began to rap with some fellow youth group members at multiple youth functions and saw many young people come to the soul saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. His excitement for evangelism grew with every soul saved underneath his ministry and it became apparent to him that God wanted to redeem Hip Hop culture.

Performances
MC Psalmist embarked on a campus to campus and city to city evangelism tour over the next few years and saw hundreds of young people delivered and saved; he participated and led many secular CD bonfires, praise and worship, inner city crusades and deliverance services; he also dedicated himself to learning how to artfully preach Jesus through a relevant medium and continues to refine the method to this day.

Ministry
Having released 4 full length albums and 10+ mix tapes, MC Psalmist has delivered an alternative to the sin sick rap music of this world to over 25,000 households and has received hundreds, if not thousands, of testimonies of how the music has affected lives for the better. MC Psalmist has also seen hundreds, if not thousands, of people set free through his evangelistic efforts in the mid-west and east coast regions of America and hopes to expand the ministry to a nationwide, if not worldwide, effort shortly. With an undying effort, he pursues his goal to reach every hood, barrio, slum and city with salvation through Jesus while simultaneously challenging those in the faith to a deeper, more committed relationship with the Lord.

Own Label
The Psalmist runs his own independent record label, Fear of the Drum Records. Besides managing his label The Psalmist is a producer as well.

Name
In May 2008 he changed his stage name from "The Psalmist" to "MC Psalmist" due to trademark issues.

Albums
The rapper released his debut album "Witnessed from the 6th Floor" in 2003. His sophomore recording "The Fifth Element" was released in February 2005. His most recent project is "Heart of Worship" (2008).
