Info:One of the early holyhiphop pioneers alongside Michael Peace, Stephen Wiley and MC Sweet is The Rappin' Reverend or Dr. C. Dexter Wise III. He released his first album in 1987.

As the " Rappin' Reverend ", Dr. Wise recorded his first rap album "I Ain't Into That! " which was the number one song on the number one rhythm and blues station in Detroit, Michigan. The song soared to number fourteen on the dance charts in London, England in the summer of 1987.

Other Rappin' Reverend publications are his book " I Ain't Into That! " (The Book) and his rap album, "Crack Attack". There is also a book called Be A Man which compliments his rap song on male responsibility. Also in connection with this, The Rappin' Reverend went on a fifty school tour and in ninety days got more than 18,000 Columbus, Ohio school children to make public commitments to live drug free, crime free and alcohol free lives.

As a preacher and pastor, Dr. Wise was called to preach at the age of twelve. He was licensed to preach at sixteen years old and ordained to the gospel ministry at nineteen. He served as a pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, Providence, Rhode island 1977-1982 and served as a pastor of Columbus, Ohio's historic Shiloh Baptist Church from 1982-1991.

Faith Ministries
In November of 1991, Dr. Wise was led to organize Faith Ministries Interdenominational Church in Columbus, Ohio. This church grew from six members to more than five hundred members in less than one month. Faith Ministries now has a weekly cable television ministry, a host of outreach ministries and has built a brand new multimillion dollar church on a 29 acre plot of land in Columbus, Ohio.
