Prozpera D
Country:United States
Info:Ricardo Paul currently resides at Houston, Texas is Prozpera"D". The MC released his debut album on Bound 4 Glory Records in February 2007.

The artist's name "Prozpera D" is pronounced as prosperity, but with a "D".

Born & Raised
Ricardo Paul Jr Prozpera"D" was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Now living in Houston, Texas due to Hurricane Katrina.

Prozpera"D" made his debut appearance on Zeeda of Bound 4 Glory Records' album entitled "Breakthru" (2005) with the hit single "Big God".

Stage Experience
Prozpera"D" has shared the stage with performances and appearances by the likes of Big Mike, Lil Raskul, George Clinton, G. Mayes and Nuera, Pettidee, and Khul Rhema and Tre-9. From performing during a segment in the Texas Holy Hip Hop Awards Prozpera D's face and anointing became familiar at a very impressive rate. "To God Be the Glory" he replies to every compliment given.

Ricardo was saved at the age of sixteen. Ricardo and everyone around him begin to notice a change in his speech, the way he carried himself and all his day-to-day activities. Soon after he began to live a life that was pleasing to God, his younger brother Josh was saved also. His mother started to see the changes in him and began to change her life around. Over the next few years, one by one, his whole family gave their lives to Christ.

Gospel music became a strong part of his life. He believes that listening to artists such as Donnie McKlurkin and Yolanda Adams strengthened his faith on a daily basis. Constantly reading the bible is what kept him so strong during hard times. His creativeness through his artwork began to pour into music. He was always trying to find a way to express his faith in various forms.

Youth Ministry
Being involved in church was one of his strong points. He was a part of the youth ministry, one of the leaders for their singles ministry and also a minister in training. While being a deacon his love for souls was his only motivation. In this effort he began to try God in a different way. God said to prove him or try him and see if He will not come through that all things are possible.

So amazed by the talents residing within Zeeda and Gifted, Ricardo made a statement to God. He said: "God, if all things are possible, then I want to be able to rap. I want to minister to those christians who are listening to secular music. To give them an alternative to whats being played on the radio."
