Sir The Baptist raises Hell… and uplifts spirits
"I'm a raise Hell til I reach Heaven's door". This pronouncement taken from the seminal debut track "Raise Hell" of one Sir The Baptist (born William James Stokes in Chicago) has become his mission statement, his mantra if you will, to infuse the flavour and the spirit of gospel music into the mainstream of American rap music and therefore refuses to be compared to other traditional gospel music artists like Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin and Yolanda Adams. In doing so, he has attracted a huge following of fans online (Spotify and YouTube), at venues (Brooklyn's Barclays Center) and numerous music festivals (Lollapalooza and Shaky Beats Music Festival) and among listeners across the world. Echoing the traditions of urban gospel and contemporary soul, this artist has in a short space of time count Jay Z as an admirer and has even opened for Beyoncé on stage. All the while he and his ChurchPeople band kept themselves busy uplifting spirits and converting the naysayers. Sir The Baptist tickets are available now for purchase or sale via StubHub.
Discover the music of Sir The Baptist
In addition to the massive crossover appeal of "Raise Hell", Sir The Baptist has made breakthroughs with other tracks such as "(Creflo) Almighty Dollar", "Wake Up" and "He Heard Me Cry" which address certain religious, social and moral issues which lie close to his heart and fuel his passion for change. He envisions himself in the spiritual mould of historical figures like Nat Turner, Martin Luther King and yes, Jesus Christ himself - not in his role as saviour or messiah, but as an activist willing to challenge the status quo. His debut album released in 2017 and entitled "Saint or Sinner" features collaborations with the likes of Ray J, Brandy ("Deliver Me") and Michelle Williams ("Southern Belle"). In addition to his studio work, there are several music videos online that range from socially conscious to dance/party and has contributed songs to the soundtrack of the documentary "Birth of a Nation". If you have any familiarity with the urban religious experience in America, then you know what to expect from this artist and his entourage live in concert and if you don't then prepare to be amazed.
