Sir the Baptist is an internationally known artist signed to Atlantic Records, BET award nominated and acknowledged by Forbes, Jay Z, Billboard, CNN, Late Night with Seth Meyers, People Magazine, BBC Radio 1, NPR, The Grammys and many others for his trailblazing cause of "Healing Hip Hop."

As a second generation cultural minister, growing up in historically rich Bronzeville neighborhood in Chicago, the idea of cleansing the culture has be a path Sir has been set out on since birth. CNN states that Sir is achieving this through a "balance between religion and life." By using the power of hip hop's influence, The Baptist records compelling stories about real people as modern parables to strip away the shame and embarrassment that too often keep people from seeking help.
