KJ-52(FANMAIL)

Posted: December 9, 2008 in hip hop, Rap, Religious

Born June 26, 1975, KJ-52 is a Christian Rapper from the United States. “KJ” stands for a longer stage name, “King J Mac,” he chose 52 (actually Five-two) for the five loaves of bread and two fish Jesus used to feed 5,000 people.  

KJ-52 started out performing with the star rapper, Goldinchild, after becoming Christian. Fanmail, the video I have posted above, was the most viewed KJ-52 video within it’s first week of being posted. Involved in the Revolve Tour, he also has a tight relationship with God as well as rapper Goldinchild. 

KJ grew up in a troubled home and started writing raps when he was twelve and got his first recording when he was sixteen, but it didn’t go as well as planned. KJ’s song I have above is called Fanmail and being a big hit, it is about troubled people. People who are emotionally hurt or sick of their ongoing actions. He sings about how they shouldn’t give up.
