About Me
BIO:
Born Ricardo Jerome Butler in Orlando, FL on December 12th, 1978. I picked up my love for hip hop in about 85' when my uncle used to play Run DMC and D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince records. I grew up around bass music like DJ. Magic Mike before it turned into the booty (then unto crunk) movement. I started off in hip hop as a graffiti artist, then into hip hop dancing and afterwards a little break dancing. But after I heard the Nas/Illmatic album one New Years Eve in 1994 going into 1995, I declared myself a rapper and hadn't wrote one single rhyme.

Earlier on in life I did poetry and one a lot of the contest in middle school. But I had no idea I actually liked to do it. The Illmatic album captivated me. Around that time Christ had been calling me prior to that, but I didn't understand the going to church thing, why all the division, different denominations, or doctrinal differences, or anything like that. The only place where I saw unity was in the streets among the gang members. I joined the Black Gangsta Disciples and ran with folk nation all the way up to prison. More on that later. So actually, I didn't start really walking with the Lord until 2004.

Anyway, I picked Bishop as my first rap name. The reason why I changed it to Reason is a whole other story. But I started out with a group of three. We called ourselves Physiological Ruckus. It was me, Mygrane (who is now part of Open Campain), and Skrapie (who is now past away, RIP). Then me and Mygrane became Mental Dizkreshon with DJ Murdoc (who is now the other half of Open Campain, now do you get that picture?). So I got married had a daughter, served in the Army for 3 years, all the while still doing hip hop for fun, not looking for a record deal. (And I’m still not looking for a record deal. My record deal came from Jesus anyway).

Finally my life took a turn for the worst. I caught a domestic battery charge fighting my former wife, and ended up in the system. Then I ended up violating my probation. The judge sentenced me to 18 months in prison. The same day I was sentenced was the same day I knew without a doubt in my heart and mind that God had been calling me. And I just said to myself I couldn't run from God's call anymore.

My life was basically a Jonah story. I missed my mark when I was younger. But now the Lord got me back on track. When I was in prison, I asked the Lord, "How can I still do rap anymore?" My heart was still dirty, and my tounge was full of bad words. I haven't even heard Christian hip hop before. So I had nothing to like motivate me or something to show me how to do it.

At the time I asked the Lord that question, I was reading the call of Moses. God had asked Moses what was in his hand. And Moses told God he had the staff or rod. And God asked me a similar question. He said what's in your hand Ricardo. I said a pencil and some paper. He said "Just write, I'll do the rest." In one week I had wrote the entire "God's Armor" album. And after I looked over it, I could not take any credit for it. I fell on my face and cried like Peter did in front of Jesus on Peter's boat concerning the fishing net situation. God asked me, "Did you ever wonder why you know and quote so much of My Scriptures, and people come up to you and ask you how did you learn all those Scriptures, and you said you didn't know, that they just seemed to pop into your head." I said yea. And God was like, "I did that, so that when you wrote your songs all you would be doing is rhyming Scriptures."

And that was the day when Reason Disciple and God's Armor Gospel of Christ Music, Prison, and Discipleship Ministries was born. It was January 8th, 2005 when that took place. And God has blessed me with a new godly wife as well and my third child. Now I have 3 beautiful girls in my life that God has placed in my care. And I will continue to follow Christ as He leads, guides, and corrects me.



GOD'S ARMOR GOSPEL OF CHRIST MUSIC MINISTRY© MISSION STATEMENT/GOALS/PURPOSE:

1. As a believer of Christ I am to tell the world that God is not mad at them and the reason why is because of God sending Christ to die in their place so they don't have to. 

2. I am also to declare to my brothers and sisters in Christ (His church) that we are of His body and that the walls that separate us--racial, denominational, doctrinal differences, etc.--must come down so we can get out job done as one church or the body of Christ.

3. My purpose with this message is to glorify God in music by equipping the local saints/churches, Christian labels, Christian production companies, and ministries worldwide to multiply talented artists and to enable them to minister the Word of God through friendship, evangelism, discipleship, and healthy growth.

4. Our goal in music is to present Christian/Gospel Rap first to the body of Christ (the church of the living God, to show them that the times have changed. The biggest influence on our children is what they see on TV and hear on the radio. So we ask for support from the true body of Christ to support the changing of a generation through relevant teachings of Truth as revealed in God's Word, the HOLY BIBLE.

5. Second, we want to rebuild from scratch the already corrupted music scene to challenge both mainstream rappers and underground hip hop heads to step up to a level of real artistic lyrics and poetic skills. That it will draw both the commercial and underground from the beef between them by seeing music from a new perspective and not the deception.

6. Last, I wanna challenge all music, not just hip hop to be positive role models for the Lord for their children's sakes. God says, "For by Him (Jesus) were all ... created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible (that includes hip hop).... all ... were created by Him (Jesus), and for Him (Jesus): And He (Jesus) is before all ..., and by Him (Jesus) all ... consist (or hold together). And He (Jesus) is the head of the body, the church: who is the Beginning, the Firstborn from the dead; that in all ... (including hip hop) He (Jesus) might have the preeminence." (Colossians 1:16-19).

7.You see, hip hop belongs to Jesus anyway, cause when He comes back He's gonna ask you what did you do with His talents and gifts He gave you, and how you used Hip Hop. To speak the devils lies, or to tell the world about Him and how much He loved us all enough to give us hip hop to have fun with.

What's it gonna be hip hop?

M.I.C. Assembly Orlando Hip Hop Church:
"Teaching God's Message of the coming Kingdom through Rhythm And Poetry!" (Col. 3:16-17, R.A.P. Version).
As a messenger of Christ I am to tell the hip hop culture that God is not mad at them and the reason why is because God has DONE IT ALL. First He changed ME from an enemy into His friend through sending Christ to die in our place. And then He gave me the job of making others His friends also. And I MUST tell them that God IS MAKING EVERYBODY IN THE WHOLE WORLD HIS FRIENDS BY WHAT CHRIST DID, AND THAT GOD ISN'T COUNTING THEIR SINS AGAINST THEM ANY LONGER. And He has given ME the Message which tells people that GOD HAS MADE THEM HIS FRIENDS so that they all will be adopted as children of God.
