UNDER_GROUND: Saint CJ
How did rapper Saint CJ become a Christian?
Jon from Youth for Christ's UNDER_GROUND, interviewed Christian rapper Saint CJ after he had kindly thrown down a track for them.
Saint CJ is a multi-talented Christian artist and creative from South East London. A singer, rapper, dancer, BRIT School graduate, he is also a signed recording artist with the Urban Gospel Record Label 'Imprint Music.'
He got into all manner of trouble as a teenager, running with a bad crowd, and eventually getting arrested for physical assault.
