For well over a decade, Grammy, Dove and Stellar Award Nominees, and Gospel

Hip-Hop pioneers, the Gospel Gangstaz, have taken the raw and uncut Gospel to

streets that few would even contemplate walking, even by day. Having been saved

and delivered from those very same cut-throat California streets the original cypher

of four, former members, Tik Tok and DJ Dove, and current members, Mr. Solo and

Chille Baby, renowned members of notorious West Coast gangs, The Bloods and The

Crips, found Christ in the very same street corners of Compton and South Central

Los Angeles where they hustled. The group's Founder, Mr. Solo, accepted the

salvation of Jesus Christ after he almost died in a gang-related shooting, in which

fellow Crip, Chille Baby had also been involved. In an interview Mr. Solo said of the

Gospel Gangstaz:

“The Gospel Gangstaz stand in a position to help, because we have seen how the

Gospel of Christ is real. Our lives were changed from selling crack, drive-by

shootings, car-jacking and illicit sex, to a life of peace, joy and happiness because of

Christ. We want to go back to the hood and let our light shine.”

The Gospel Gangstaz formed their musical association after rival ex-gang members,

Mr. Solo, from The Crips, and Tik Tok, from The Bloods, became prayer partners at

the Church in which they were born again. In the early stages of his own walk with

Christ, Mr. Solo personally ministered to his friend and fellow Crip, Chille Baby, who

accepted Christ, and was later invited to be a member of the Gospel Gangstaz,

along with the group’s DJ, DJ Dove. The Gospel Gangstaz are renowned for their

ministry focus of spreading the love and hope of Christ to young men and women
