Info:Bracey has been involved with music, since he was very young, but as he states: "I haven't always done the type of music God wanted me to. I used to love secular music and had dreams of pursuing it as a career. However, God's plans for me were much different than my own."

By his musical involvment in school he met friends, who were in total devotion to Christ. As the MC says: "Their passion rubbed off on me, and I discovered a greater spiritual life than I had ever known. Because of their influence I decided to take my first shot at full-time ministry with a singing group known as Sevyn. They are now known as Simple Faith."

As Bracey continues: "I wanted to be obidient to the Lord, but there were still parts of me that I had reserved to myself." In early 2004 the group and Bracey parted ways. It was at this point that the Lord went deeper into His personal work on this MC.

Soon after his departure from Sevyn, he was exposed to the ministry of Elder G. Craig Lewis. His ministry played an intricate role in removing secular music from Bracey's life completely. As he states "Thus, allowing me to give my all to the Lord and letting Him use the gift He gave me as He desired. On July 4, 2004, I re-dedicated my life to Christ and was re-baptized at New Jerusalem Baptist Church in Cincinnati."

Christian music
From there, the Lord opened many doors for the MC in christian music. That same year he was featured on "The Message Radio Show Mix LP, Lesun's album "God Fearing Rap Music" (2004) and the T.H.I.S. Click Records mixtape "Serious Series Vol. 2" (2004). Bracey also started his own independent record label, "Ain't Yo Average Music."

Before the start of 2005 he signed a one-album deal with T.H.I.S. Click Records, which is headed by National Recording Artist, k-Drama. 2005 would bring further blessings as Bracey became the host of a Cincinnati Radio Show known as "Morning Inspiration". He was also named the Ast. Gospel Director of WCIN 1480am.
