Second chances. We all get chances to fix situations that we may have messed up. Whether it was a relationship or personal choices that may have caused harm to our life, every new day is a chance to fix it. Saturday afternoon at Fully Loaded Cafe in Bunkie,LA I had the opportunity to meet a man that received a second chance in life and is making the most out of the opportunity. His name is Dub Demond.
Dub Demond is a rapper that happens to be a born again Christian. Dub Demond recently released an album called Take Control of Me,which can be found on ITunes. Dub Demond was influenced by New York Mc’s and break dancing. Rappers such as Scarface were also an inspiration to him. Prior to giving his life to Christ Dub grew up in church,but he strayed away in his teenage years. Dub was eventually sentenced to over 25 years in prison for a crime that he did not commit.
After serving 17 years in prison, Dub was released from prison and returned home a changed man. He did not stand behind a pulpit and share the gospel,but he grabbed a microphone and spoke a language the streets understood: hip hop.
His lyrics are filled with truth straight from the Bible. His album even includes a song that is a semi battle rap called, “Highly Favored” He is also filming a video for,Patch it Up. I recommend that you listen to his music and his testimony. Both have the ability to heal the soul.
