I'm a community activist for criminal justice reform and mental health awareness, as well as a former lawyer and convicted felon who just came home in May of 2019. I'm an artist/producer (stage name = Pastor Ayu) from Washington, DC and I make what I call " Gospel Trap" music about how my faith in Jesus Christ turned my life around and got me back on track. I talk truthfully about the streets and how God's mercy can change anyone, particularly if He changed me, over hardcore trap beats. While I was still incarcerated, I led the Bible study for my unit (Southeast 3 in DC Jail) and I was in the Inmate Gospel Choir. I still do Bible study and ministry at DC Jail right now with the Phoenix Ministry at New Bethel Baptist Church. I also work with the National Reentry Network for Returning Citizens (the formerly incarcerated) throughout DC in getting people jobs and housing when they come home from prison.
