We ran across this exciting artist while learning about The Legacy Los Angeles Conference planned for Biola University on April 1st. From his bio, we discover that the Los Angeles raised M.C. Bizzle (born Mark J. Felder) wrote his first rap verse at no older than 8 years old and also started writing R&B around that same time. Now at 31 years old, he has over 20 years under his belt as a writer and “the experience shows in his sound and versatility.”
In January 2010 he released the track “You Got Some Explaining to Do”, a song directed towards Jay-Z, calling him out on his negative references towards Jesus in his raps; which caused a lot of controversy. The buzz was bigger that he could have ever imagined.
After continuously being called the “Christian Rapper” that dissed Jay Z, Bizzle decided that he wanted to continue his movement to bring Glory to Christ through his music. He released his first Christian Mixtape entitled “The Messenger” in March of 2010. “The Messenger” was a huge success, receiving over 20,000 downloads and creating an even bigger buzz on the internet, with his views on Worldstarhiphop.com, Allhiphop.com, Mediatakeout.com, Bossip.com, youtube.com, etc… totaling well over 3 million.
…In July of 2014 Bizzle released “Well Wishes.” The project is a heavy collaborative Christian Hip Hop album in which 100% of the profits are going towards building water wells in Mozambique Africa. Well Wishes reached #2 on the Christian Gospel billboard charts and #12 on the Hip Hop/Rap billboard charts. – Bizzle bio excerpts
