@bigshiz through your talent and through your music, you will always be a true communicator of God’s word with music that made an impact on the WORLD!!! My heart aches as I write this. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to see you when I visited but I understood… you were lending your hand to someone who needed you… as always. I stated before how I admired you and how together with your beautiful wife, April, you took your family away from the madness that is Hollywood! Concentrating your efforts on the lord and your family. You never let money,power, accolades and fame dictate who you are. A travesty we’ve witnessed some of the men and women embrace time and time again in this business. You and @bsladenow the first to guide and help me. I just gotta say… Thank you! God bless you and rest God’s arms. ????????❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
