Releases:[Jesus Saves] [Philadelphia Fellowship]
Info:Hans R. Nelson also known as HanSoul is a disciple with unshakable principles affirmed through Jesus Christ. The Philadelphia native hit the scene in 1991, with the hitsingle "Imagination" that went to the top 10 on Billboard's rap charts. Hans was the second rap artist signed to Epic/Sony records in 1991. And also did a stint with Loud/RCA records in 1994.

Abundant amounts of exposure and success could not stop HanSoul's pain, depression, drug usage and confusion. HanSoul redeemed his career in the hip-hop industry in 1995. During HanSoul's darkest days he pleaded with Christ to deliver him from the things that ensnared him.

Christ answered his prayer by convincing him to surrender and rededicate Himslf and to use his gifts to win souls for The Kingdom of God. Now as a born-again christian, HanSoul is living his second life in the world of arts and music.

HanSoul, created a ministry radio show called The Holy Hip-Hop Experience on 103.9 FM The Beat in Philadelphia. This prime time radio show aired on Sundays from 9:50 pm-12am. HanSoul ministered through different mediums of music including rap, reggae, R&B, go-go, while interviewing entertainers, pastors, actors, athletes and political figures.

Hans believes: "With Jesus Christ as my creative director, my talent is capable of radiating throughout the music I create as well as the radio show I host."
