LOST TAPES

I've lost footage, shot terrible footage, and started videos without completing them, yet somehow you all have still showed support. While I've lost a lot, I have somehow saved some bits and pieces along the way, so I've decided to share them with you all in the form of the compilation video.

INTERVIEW

SIR THE BAPTIST

TRR ATL’s feature artist of the summer is a formidable force that goes by the moniker of Sir the Baptist. His stage name is a declaration of his belief about what he can do for Hip Hop, and his music puts his money where his mouth is. Sir is dedicated to mission, and for him that includes moving Hip-Hop culture forward, one listen at a time.TRR ATL’s feature artist of the summer is a formidable force that goes by the moniker of Sir the Baptist.

How you gonna be about Black Lives Matter, and then your next line is about killing a nigga? Nigga, all lines matter.
— Sir the Baptist

The Chicago native’s come-up story is one of those that you wish you could claim as your own; it honestly rivals Big Sean’s freestyle story as one of the most inspirational stories that I’ve heard from a rapper. A year prior to the release of his breakout

single, “Raise Hell,” Sir the Baptist was driving Lyft full time and sleeping in his minivan every night. After shopping around his single to his passengers, he gained the confidence to release “Raise Hell,” which helped him transition from being a Lyft driver to being

cosigned by Lyft, performing at festivals, and being signed by Atlantic Records. Some would say it was a miracle, but I think that it is a direct result of the time he spent humbling himself while being driving Lyft. 2 years ago, Sir the Baptist was living the lyrics of "What We Got," an enlightening single from his debut album, Saint or Sinner. The energy that you put out into the world will be returned, and as a result, he has performed at Shaky Beats Festival in Atlanta, Lollapalooza in Chicago, Bonnaroo, and Broccoli City Festival, a feat that many rappers would love to have achieved without any albums attached to their name. 

If I could be anything, I want to be the little engine in the hood
— Sir the Baptist

It’s undeniably a story for the books, but Sir’s music is equally as impressive. He comfortably struts on the line between the church and the wild, challenging his listeners to be inspired and invigorated, and that is an accomplishment that many artists struggle to achieve. His love for the culture and passion for its empowerment are what makes meeting Sir the Baptist a sacred experience.
