Emcee Broken One of the Shadow of the Locust Crew

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2013 by Selah One

Marco [Broken One] explains his younger days as povertized and full of gang activity. Both his parents were heavily influenced by Street Life allowing drugs and violence to run the house. The path was set before him and he followed it, be coming addicted to meth, rock cocaine, weed and alcohol by age 13 resulting in a crack overdose at 15. The lifestyle caught up with him even by way of a gang hit being put out on his head as his debtors sought to take his life.

Moving to the High Desert area of CA, Marco continued to bang until after he lost 2 children prematurely with his longstanding girlfriend and now wife. The effect of this caused him to seek meaning in life bringing him to church and fellowship with Christ. In 2005 Marco met up with Reveal who introduced him to the Holy side of HipHop. This enlightenment impacted Marco heavily who immediately began EmCeeing in a High Desert CA crew called ‘His Fame’ under the title, Broken 1. Rocking shows throughout the southern westcoast areas of California ‘His Fame’ was spreading Light through the culture of HipHop. Urban evangelists of dynamic proportions!
After Reveals induction into SOTL, Broken expressed a strong desire to follow, being a long time zealot of the ‘Locust’ brand of music and ministry. Spending  a few years as a disciple under the tutelage of Dirt and Reveal, the end of 2012 saw the officialization of this MC into the crew.
Now SOTL-embraced, this mic lord and his relevant flow of raspy, political/theologically charged raps, are breaking loose through the camps and out to the street. Broken adds a fresh paradigm to the crew with his vehement, energize delivery. Be assured that his songs will always be littered with raw, emotional flux and meaningful, Christ-studied brainstorm bombings! –

Fictional Object Lesson Goes Viral – 2 Million Hits in the FIRST HOUR

 “An hour after putting up the story it had 2 million hits and kept growing by the minute. I knew it was the Lord sharing what I was feeling with his people. The story quickly kept growing and was soon at 8 million views. I started to get many emails from people all over the world saying how the story touched their lives, made them reevaluate their walk and many came back to Jesus. Even Atheists wrote in saying that the story touched them.” – P – Dub of

From Pastor to PauperPastor Jeremiah Steepek, transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning. He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service. Only 3 people out of the 10,000 people said hello to him. He asked people for change to buy food….NO ONE in the church gave him change. He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit in the back. He greeted people only to be greeted back with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down on him and judging him.As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such. When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation……..”We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek”….The congregation looked around, clapping with joy and anticipation…..The homeless man sitting in the back stood up…..and started walking down the aisle…..the clapping stopped with ALL eyes on him….he walked up the altar, took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment, then he recited ……“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning. Many began to cry and many heads were bowed in shame…. he then said….Today I see a gathering of people……not the church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples…when will YOU decide to become disciples? He then dismissed service until next week…….Being a Christian is more than something you claim to be. It’s something you live by and share with others.

Blessings to you,

My name is P-Dub. No, I am not the Christian Rapper who also goes by that name. I am the Author of “From Pauper to Pastor” the story of Pastor Jeremiah Steepek that went viral on Facebook on July 22nd. I wrote the story to express how I was feeling after visiting some churches in my hometown of San Jose, California. Many times I went to these big churches broken hearted, feeling lonely, depressed and searching for God. Sadly, every time I would walk out of the church, I felt worse then when I walked in. No one greeted me. I would smile at people and they would look down or away. I would try to approach people but felt out of place. I just ended up sitting in the very back of the church just hoping someone would reach out, but no one ever did. Everyone seemed to have their own cliques and I wasn’t part of them. I finally gave up and started to just fellowship with God on my own.

When I wrote the story, I wanted to share my heart without letting people know I was struggling. I’m the co-owner of a popular Christian web site and didn’t want people to talk about me or judge my walk. I have come to know that sometimes, Christians can be quick to judge and slow to forgive or understand and didn’t want to have to explain myself. When I put up the story, it was just to share with my websites Facebook family and that was it. What happened next, I could never have imagined.

An hour after putting up the story it had 2 million hits and kept growing by the minute. I knew it was the Lord sharing what I was feeling with his people. The story quickly kept growing and was soon at 8 million views. I started to get many emails from people all over the world saying how the story touched their lives, made them reevaluate their walk and many came back to Jesus. Even Atheists wrote in saying that the story touched them.  I was so blown away that the Lord could do so much with such a little story.

As the emails continued, I started to receive very mean spirited ones. Christians calling the story a lie and fabrication. Well it was, but like I said, it was meant only to be used on our Facebook page. I didn’t think of putting up a disclaimer because it wasn’t a news story or something that needed a verified source…it was just a story. I also started receiving letters about the photo I used and how I was stealing it and not giving credit to the author. What people didn’t know is that I searched for Royalty free photos. It took me to Flickr where I found the photo that I used from Brad J Gerrard. I mistakenly took Royalty free as FREE and used the photo to compliment the story. I replied to an email and let the person know it was a Royalty Free picture from FLICKR. The person explained to me how Flickr worked and I immediately took down the post along with the 8 million hits and sent an email to the photographer to ask him for forgiveness and made things right.

I have now licensed the photo below.

I am putting the story back up for it to be used by God as he wishes. I want to apologize to anyone I offended by not putting up it was just a story, however as I explained, I never expected it to go viral and didn’t feel it was necessary.

Please feel free to share it, post it, copy it or whatever the Lord leads you to do with it. It is my sincerest hope that it touches many people, especially Pastors and helps them change the way the church treats strangers.

In Him,

iMage {code} Lyric Sheet

About Timzo:

Born June 24, 1977, this Dallas, Texas native is destined to change the face of Rap as we know it. “I wrote my first rhyme back in the fourth grade”, he laughs, “It was only four lines though”. From that point on, he says, he was “hooked”. I began to understand more about him as he explained the reason behind his deep connection to the genre.  “I was an outcast in school.
Though everybody knew me, I wasn’t with the ‘in crowd’ or ‘click’. I tried my best to fit in, but I was always different. That’s why I related to rap music so much”, he explains. “You see, back then, Rap was rebellious, edgy: unique…ya know? It didn’t sound or feel like any other genre of music I’d ever heard before. So I connected instantly, because when I listened to it or wrote it, those feelings of loneliness and rejection went away.” However, he’s not just a skilled lyricist. When you listen to the music, you’ll find he’s also a musician. “I play the piano and drums by ear,” he says with all humility. “I would hear a theme song to a T.V. show and run to the piano and play what I heard all of the time. I was about four years old when it started happening.” He has a raw talent for music and writing. His style is unique from any rap you’ve heard heretofore. When asked about the origin of his creativity, I was surprised(yet enlightened) by his reply. “Honestly, my creativity comes from God”, he says with boldness. “It’s impossible for me to take the credit for music God gives me in dreams while I’m asleep” he says. “It all comes from God: the Great Orchestrator. I hear music in dreams, all during the day: I hear it in my head right now. It’s just a God-Given Gift.” Though Some will (no doubt) label him a Gospel Rapper, he says he’s far from it. “I’m not a Gospel Rapper,” he smiles briefly, then explains, “…but I’m not a Gangster Rapper either. I can’t even Label what God’s doing through me. Perhaps I’m just chosen.” He’s right. When you listen to this music, complemented by his unique voice, and compare it to the predictable, boring, and meaningless Rap you hear all over the radio stations, you’ll get a refreshing feeling. It restores lost love for the Rap Genre, which undoubtedly seems to be going down hill. However, there are so many feelings to describe his style: Spiritual, uplifting, thought- provoking, motivating; Real. He doesn’t hide behind his music. In fact, the one thing that separates him from Gospel Rap is his ability to be transparent through his lyrics. “You’ll learn a lot about me if you pay attention to my lyrics, because that’s the way I open up to you. I talk about my struggles, weaknesses, fears, frustrations: I tell it all. I’ve never felt like I could completely open up to anyone. Especially now, since I’m a christian” he says. “That’s why I’m so transparent when I write. Music has always been my best friend. It has always accepted me and allowed to be real without fear of rejection. It taught me being different is a good thing: how to celebrate my uniqueness” he says. “I see God’s Love for me through the gifts he’s given me.” When asked if he was the next big rap artist to hit the scene, he gave a sincere, honest, and humble reply. “I ‘m not trying to take over the rap game. I’m not trying to sound, act, or rap like any who’ve come before me. God wants to do a new thing in me. This is his project, his purpose, and his message to his people. I’ve been chosen as his instrument. Whatever his plan is, whatever he wants to do through me, that’s fine with me” he explains. “I have a deep Respect and Admiration for those who’ve paved the way. I look at it like this: Rap is a Blank Canvas on which every artist paints his or her own picture” he says. “I’ve been chosen by God to paint a different picture; to reveal a different side of rap and touch the lives of his people through my own confession. That’s what the album is all about” he says, “My walk with Jesus: The journal of my journey-step by step.”
