Info:Born and raised in New York City, Solomon Starr is a gifted Gospel hip hop minister.

Start
Solomon began rapping at age nine during the height of a crack epidemic. The intensity of crime in his neighborhood presented Solomon with threatening obstacles that challenged his development into mature adulthood. Witnessing robberies and murders in the hallways of his apartment building forced him to transform his confusion and anxiety into lyrics. Even though writing helped ease the agony of adolescence, much of the comfort he received came from the spiritual direction he gained through active involvement in church.

God
Solomon diligently sought to have a relationship with God at a young age and came to accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior following a powerful conversion experience at the age of fifteen. This experience increased his desire to share the message of Christ with his peers.

Reality
However, as leader of his church's youth group, Solomon realized the difficulty of sharing the Gospel with teens who faced the hardships of an urban environment. Confronted with this bitter reality, Solomon abandoned the church after graduating high school in order to seek understanding in other places.

Broken
His journey snatched him from the chaotic streets of Washington Heights and introduced him to the peaceful neighborhoods of Pella, Iowa. Although his surroundings were quite calm, the inner turmoil of a broken relationship with God raged within him.

Racism
This, coupled with the experience of intense racism at Central College, forced Solomon to turn towards a lifestyle full of drugs and alcohol. Although he pursued a B.A. in Religion, a life of holiness was far from his mind. Heavy drinking, drug abuse and minor drug trafficking would be the pattern for most of his college life; he sought to numb the pain through such destructive behavior but Solomon could not erase his need for reconciliation with God.

Reconciliation
Thankfully, reconciliation came for Solomon in March 2003 during a night so distressful that he thrust himself to his knees and cried out to God in repentance.

Storytellas
This event began the rapid transformation that landed Solomon in Crossroads Tabernacle where he is now a member of the Storytellas, a music ministry that evangelizes in prisons, churches and streets throughout the tri-state area.

Performances
In addition, the Lord has allowed him perform as a solo act all over the city, ministering at such events as the acclaimed Rap Fest. Also, he has been blessed to open for such artists as Cross Movement and Bobby Bishop.

Study
Solomon Starr is currently pursuing a Masters in Divinity at New Brunswick Theological Seminary and is serving as Director of Youth at Fort Washington Collegiate Church.

Powerful Gifts
Although he once basked in the prestige of sharing stages with secular Hip-Hop acts, Solomon Starr finds no greater satisfaction than following Christ as he helps transform people through the powerful gifts given to him by God.

Crew
The MC is also featured on The Storytellas album "The Man" (2005).

Mixtapes
The MC released the free mixtape "Twilight of the Idols" in July 2007.
