"Gospel Message Delivered With A Street Beat"

New Symrna Beach - A rapid-fire hip-hop beat filled the radio station booth where Kna-ledge and Lil' Meek got set to rap over an open copy of the Bible.

Singing into microphones to the staccato, griity beat of the street, they praised God.

"Baby / you gonna make it / If you keep your focus, on the Lord."

Using the same hard-edged sound that reaches the youth of today like no other, their words evoked positive messages, shunning commercial rap and hip-hop's reputation for demeaning women and glorifying wealth, drugs and violence.

Kna-ledge (pronounced "knowledge") and Lil' Meek are aspiring gospel hip-hop artists from Orlando with day jobs. Their live appearance highlighted a recent 10:30 p.m. Saturday broadcast of Pure Fire Street from the Christian radio station WKTO (88.9 FM).

Kna-ledge and Lil' Meek discovered the Pure Fire Street broadcast while listening to the radio together as they served time in Tomoka Correctional Institution. Both live in Orlando now. Kna-ledge is 27-year-old pipefitter Elliott Daniels, who considers himself a hip-hop lyricist.

A long time aspiring hip-hop artist, Kna-ledge admits the images of commercial rap and the crowd he was hanging around tempted him into a "mischievious" life. He served five years for the armed robbery of video rental store managers while theymade bank deposits.

" I like music with a purpose," Daniels said. " I need to hear postive images about life, not death."

A recent convert to rap performance, Christopher Atkins (Lil' Meek) pays tribute to Daniels. "I'm blessed to have found a guy like him." - The Daytona Beach News-Journal (John Bozzo)
