TRUE, a native of Toledo, Ohio turned international Christian rap artist and 2013 Holy Hip Hop Award Honoree.
Andrew Brennan was born and raised in a Christian family where his parents were the primary influence on his life. TRUE’s father was not only his mentor but pastor who taught and admonished him in the word of God which helped him grow greatly in his relationship with the Lord. Like his father, at a young age TRUE displayed a real interest and love for music, hip hop in particular.
As TRUE entered high school he met a couple students who were heavily involved in the Hip Hop culture who also shared the same passion, but in a different way. Their involvement with the craft was driven by the desire for money, fame and respect, TRUE however, had different motives. Soon after the encounter, TRUE sought the voice of the Lord and heard the calling God had placed on his life. TRUE then understood what he was designed to do, and from then on pursued his passion to make rap with a reason with no signs of stopping. He aims to take a primarily evil form of entertainment used by the enemy and flip it in such a way that it will give God his all deserving glory, challenge and encourage all those who listen and most importantly reach the lost who do not know Jesus to be their Lord and Savior.
TRUE has not only been featured on several projects throughout his career he also produced his own mixtapes and albums, including his international debut album “Triumphant”, to his latest release “Salute”. TRUE lives by the scriptures Revelation 12:11 which states, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” and 1 Peter 2:17 “Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.” He aims to honor and respect all men, believers and unbelievers alike, and spread the love of Jesus, showing the world that we are triumphant through the Lord Jesus Christ and we overcome the opposition of the enemy by the blood that he shed on the cross to atone for our sins.
TRUE understands the call as stated in Matthew 28:19 to make disciples of all nations, and because of this he is set to preach the gospel to the ends of the earth. TRUE has ministered in several states across the U.S. as well as presented the truth of Jesus abroad, to countries such as Canada and Jamaica. Throughout his travels TRUE has had the honor of sharing the stage with several international and award winning artists. TRUE eagerly awaits what the Lord has in store for the ministry next. Glory to God alone.
Taking a secularized form of entertainment and utilizing it for the glory of God and His kingdom. To encourage, challenge and reach.
With the platform God has entrusted me with, I strive to convey the message of Jesus in a culturally relevant way. Staying true to the times as well as never departing from the message of the gospel, rap with a reason. Christ centered and God glorifying lyrics with a humble heart passionate for the work of the Lord!
