Info:Believin Stephen (also known as Stephen Brindle) from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania released his debut recording What I Believe EP in 2007.

The MC states about his mission: "I aim to point listeners to Jesus Christ who is the God man, and who came to save the sick and those who are a mess. I am a mess and still am a mess even after conversion but that's OK. Christ came to save people who are a mess, who aren't perfect. My goal is to help people realize that Jesus is the only way to heaven."

The MC continues explaining: "My aim is to make music that comes from the heart and to speak up on issues I feel are important for listeners to here. Writing rhymes helps me to get things off my chest and I feel I can be more transparent through a song many times then I could be just talking to someone."

Believin Stephen released his debut recording What I Believe EP in 2007.

Artwork EP
The rapper explains: "The scene is an underground hip-hop show and the cats on stage do not represent any particular rappers but you can pretty much tell that they are boasting about themselves, could be saved/unsaved. The CD cover is really a depiction of the song entitled "Why Boast?"."

"Throughout the past eight years or so since I was 15, I have been to countless hip-hop events. Since I turned 18 most of these events have been christian hip-hop events around the country. A lot of times I find myself observing from the background and playing the wall and analyzing what is going on. That is why you see me seated in the corner observing whats going down in the picture." [...]

Kept Silent
Believin Stephen: "Many times what I believe is not the most popular or isn't the norm. I want to share with the listener on this EP what it is that I exactly believe. From many years I have been at events and have kept silent but now is a time that the Lord wants me to speak up and say what He has put on my heart."

The MC already has a name for his first full length album: "The Suffering Servant".
