"Icris" (short for "I am a Christian") is a Christian Hip-Hop artist hailing from Muskegon, Michigan who is taking this unique blend of music to spread the message of the saving grace of Jesus Christ!

 

Icris delivers his music in its sincerest form; the truth that his life has been
and all of those life experiences that has made him the man he is today. 

Icris is a former drug dealer and thief, who pulled guns on people with the sole intent on taking their life. Period.  At the same time, Icris had a strange urge to make music.  Making music for years, he started out doing Hip-Hop with all the swear words, drug references and abusive lyrics towards women that he could put to a beat.

He soon grew tired of living the Hip-Hop lifestyle, so he “tuned out and turned on”, getting hooked on the drug ecstasy, which eventually grew into a severe cocaine addiction.  His drug addiction soon turned into 2 suicide attempts, 2 near-fatal drownings,  several drug overdoses, being stabbed in the heart and lung (losing 2/3rds of all the blood in his body), 2 major car accidents, being thrown from a motorcycle, head first, into a concrete parking block (while wearing no helmet), and more.  Eventually diagnosed severely bipolar with a personality disorder, Icris' drug problem became so serious, it led to a weekend cocaine and alcohol binge where he cleaned out his family's bank account and walked around waving a shotgun, just before cutting both of his wrists. After a stint in rehab, and with the help of his wife and his neighborhood church, Icris became reborn and truly began to live for the first time. 

After being set free from the addictions in his former life, Icris began giving his life back to God and his passion for music was revived inside of him again!  

Today, Christian Rap star Icris has touched the lives of thousands of fans across all races and backgrounds through his outstanding music.  He travels extensively throughout the United States, teaching the love and forgiveness of God through his life stories.  Since the release of his first CD "Stereotype" in 2007, Icris has been able to grow his love for music into a worldwide "concert ministry", with CD sales, and saved souls, that numbers in the thousands.  Currently the music of Icris is being featured in one of acclaimed director Joel Valleie's movies (Corazon De Campeon) and his music is receiving FM radio rotation, and is available for purchase on I-tunes and at select retailers.

Icris holds a degree in Biblical Studies and is the former Head of Jr. High Ministry for Resurrection Life Church in Ionia, Michigan. He is also the Founder and Head of Ministry for Secret Society Music Ministries.
