Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to take the time to introduce you to the November 26,2011 winner of the "2Racks Rap Contest" hosted by "Sellassie" and "In-house Talent", in San Francisco, "Menance Tree"!!!!!

What makes this win so incredible is not the fact that he raps good and won, its the fact that he was the only NON_SECULAR rapper. He was the only one in the house rep'n GOD. Which proves that when God blesses you with a talent its not limited to the church, its not limited to your 4 and no more, that you are so supposed to go out to the streets, go where the sinners are and God will rev up your engines like a brand new car.

Though "Menace Tree" won 2g's, that's not the reason he won to me. He won because he was not afraid to go into the lion's den and preach the word of GOD. He was not afraid to stick out and be different. But the real reason, was so that he could preach the word of God in a language that the sinners could hear, to be a vessel for the Lord to come near.

If you'd like to check "Menace Tree" out live, he goes to rep his title, again, in  San Francisco 01/21/2012, Seattle 02/23/2012, and Los Angeles 03/10/2012.


Depending upon who you ask about this gentleman you’ll receive a plethora of aliases "Rapsody", "Mr Clean", "Mr. Seldom Seen" or "Menace Tree", despite the wide range of aka's the thing that remains the same  is the anointing on his music


"Donald Ray Johnson III"  known as "Menace Tree" (pronounced Ministry) has been a minister of music for well over a decade. Although music is his passion he considers the wife of his youth, for over 10 years, and their 4 children to be his 1st ministry

In January 2003 "Menace Tree" released his first album entitled “Manna“ under the name "Rapsody" from his "2:11 Muzik" record label which was well received in the "Bay Area" and raised the bar on many levels for "Gospel Rap/Holy Hip-Hop" artists. 

"Menace Tree" is a 2009 graduate of the "School Of Worship Arts" program at "The Ministry Training Institute" in Vacaville, California. His resume includes ministering at numerous juvenile institutions, adult correctional facilities including Pelican Bay State Prison, colleges, churches, and the list goes on. 


A native of Fairfield/Suisun, California "Menace Tree’s" heart is to bring Jesus Christ to his community, his county, his region, and across the globe. Above all, he aims to remain available and in proximity to the throne that he may be able to effectively communicate the heart of God to people of all walks.

In 2010 "Menace Tree" did it again releasing his "Jaws Of Life" mix tape with some old and some old made new tracks, that still slap. "Menace Tree" has a hard hitt'n style, that makes you want to slap da beat and turn up the dial


While you will be entertained by his metaphors, delivery and flow, he makes is plain that "Christ" is the only way to goGod is prevalent and relevant in every track he spits and that's why "Menace Tree" is comfortable where he sits. Not in it for the money, recognition or fame, "Menace Tree" is in it to save souls, and bring glory to God's name.

What I like about "R.E.I.G.N" is that she keep it real and she's not afraid to express how she really feels. She comes hard but she comes with the word, in a style for a female, that I have never heard.

"R.E.I.G.N" is from "Oakland, CA", so you know she's got to rep God in a "Bay" way. "R.E.I.G.N" which means "Reaching Everyone In God's Name", is loving known as "California's Leading Lady" cuz she's far ahead of the pack and holding it down like that.

Rapping is not for her fame or gain, but to bring glory to God's name. God put us each on earth with our own mission, and "R.E.I.G.N" is definitely do her part, making big noise in the "Holy Hip Hop" industry.

"Dwight Taylor Sr"., a.k.a. "Transparent", is an International gospel rappermotivational speaker, and mentor. This 2010 Stellar Award Nominee, for "Hip Hop Gospel CD of the Year" won the "Best of the Blessed" Artist of the Year award at the 2009 Christian Music Awards (CMA). 

"Transparent" was also nominated for 6 categories at the 2009 "Rejoice Gospel Music Awards", where he was blessed to take home the "Best Male Gospel Hip Hop Artist (unsigned)" and "Gospel's Rising Star" award. He has shared the stage with such artist as "CeCe Winans", "News Boys", "Brian Littrell" of the "Backstreet Boys", "Canton Jones", "Lecrae", "Tonex", "The Katinas", "Tremaine Hawkins", "Everyday Process", "Leeland", "R-Swift", "Dj Morph", "Frontlynaz", "Mark  J", and many more.

Originally from "Richmond, California", "Transparent" is currently residing in "Fairfield, California". He is a Bishop O'Dowd High School and Fresno State University Alumni with a Bachelor of Science degree in Child Development


In November 2005, "Transparent" began to follow two callings that God had placed on his life. The first, ministering the gospel through music, and the second, starting his own non-profit Christian organization called "On Purpose Inc.," designed to cater to the youth of both Contra Costa and Solano County

While living in Richmond, he was actively involved in volunteer work at the Coronado YMCA and in 2006 he was honored with the "Volunteer of the Year" award from The West Contra Costa YMCA. From 2006-2008, "Transparent" held positions with Alternative Family Services as a case manager/Independent Living Skills Specialist for foster care and adoption children. His dual passions for children and spreading the Word of God are what fuel's his determination to live his life in an upright and "Transparent" way. 

In 2007 "Transparent" began taking over the gospel music scene by storm. In March, he won the American Christian Talent Search and in June he participated in the CMA. Nearly two years later on January 27th, 2009, "Transparent" released his eagerly awaited debut album "L.I.F.E."(Living In Favor Everyday), which has been globally recognized. In September 2009, "L.I.F.E" was released in Australia followed by a two-week promotional tour (his third tour in Australia). While touring he was privileged to minister in Melbourne and Brisbane Australia. On November 21st, 2009, "Transparent" performed live in front of 11,000 spectators, plus the millions who viewed this on the SHOWTIME network. On this special night, "Transparent" brought to the ring the Super Middleweight Boxing Champion Andre "SOG" Ward, with his worship/rap anthem "The GREATEST".

Today, "Transparent" has ministered at approximately 250 different venues across the world (Churches, Cruises, High Schools, Colleges, Talent shows, and Award shows). Every Sunday, he currently ministers to theyouth and guards at the Solano County Juvenile Hall and uplifts and inspires them through his music. Along with his dedication to empowering youth, "Transparent" also uses the medium of television to present the gospel.

Wherever you find "Transparent", be it ministering through musicsharing his life on "Transparent T.V." or just speaking into the lives of the youth he encounters, it is relevant that throughout these great accomplishments, his focus remains the same, which is to "Advance the Kingdom one second at a time."
