Still working on that hot first release.




 Growing up with aspirations of joining the “family business” of hustling the streets, Dontae now has a mission to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ back to the streets.  Although he does not consider himself an artist, Dontae says, “I feel as if I’ve been chosen to provide music that is testimonial to those who wouldn’t normally listen to Christian rap.” Born Dontae McFarland in 1977, Dontae was born in St. Louis, Missouri.  He later moved with his mother and some of his aunts and uncles to San Diego in 1989.  As a teenager, he started selling dope and hustling in the streets with a crew to provide food for his family.  Wanting to reconnect with his father, he moved back to St. Louis in 1996.  There, he continued in the street life with some family members.  Business had become lucrative, but it also led to potential incarceration for up to 25 years.  Facing time in a jail cell, Dontae cried out to the Lord.  “I had shared with [God] that if He had planned for me to do the time behind my actions, I was willing to do ‘em.  But if He’d seen another life fit for me, and if He had other plans for me, than I would mount up and answer my call.”  He says he was delivered that day from serving the time—the story he tells in his single, “Delivered”, on his newly released EP, The Assignment.  Since then God has moved upon the life of Dontae - becoming a power house with a unique anointing in the Christian Hip-Hop community.   Sharing the stage with multiple highly branded names such as BIZZLE, NO MALICE, SEVEN, FLAME, SOCIAL CLUB, & ACTOR NOEL G just to name a few. With a flow that rides over tracks and live instruments produced by Sound Collage, God has used Dontae to capture audiences all over the country and far across international waters. This ministry is breaking strongholds and being used as a tool in an effort to help build the Kingdom of God.  Nevertheless, keep your ear to the ground for any up-coming concerts; and be on the lookout for his new album, COMING SOON.
